A lovely find to the North East of Bridport on the River Mangerton. Fishing lakes, camping and craft centre as well as a working water wheel , where corn is occasionally ground while you watch. The highlight is the cafe where you can sit by the wheel listening to the water through the mill race, or if the weather is... More

You can have one of the finest cream teas anywhere, by the sound of an ancient waterwheel. The lunches are excellent and good value for money. Service is efficient and friendly and one has the choice of eating outside or inside in poor weather

Found the mill almost by accident. As other reviewers it is a quiet spot. The tea room is lovely with friendly staff and great food. The mill itself is small with the waterwheel still in place. The lake is nice to walk around and very peaceful. It is definitely worth the short drive from the "a" roads to get to... More

Mangerton mill is a quiet oasis away from busy roads and crowds of trippers. The working watermill wheel has a hypnotic effect and fish can be seen in the millpond. The attractive tea room has lots of interesting features and is very comfortable in all weathers.This is complemented by the number of tables outside which stretch from the front of... More

We spent an hour or so wandering round the museum at the mill and visiting the various art galleries. Lovely to see craft items made by local people. The museum has all kinds of items from yester-year - 1940s cooker, original hovers, old presses, a mangle, farm tools etc. Loved the copy of The Telegraph from 1938. There is a... More

Sat within mere feet of the stunning, fully-operating watermill, we enjoyed a delightful Dorset cream tea, served with a generous helpings of jam and cream. The tea itself was also absolutely delicious. What more could you want than perfectly tasty food, served by friendly and helpful staff? I must reiterate that the mill was working. I asked a member of... More

My favourite place to visit for a quiet, relaxing lunch. Lovely area and lakeside walk with small art, craft halls to visit and the Old Mill Museum. Lovely home cooked food and sandwiches. Extensive menu for a small establishment
