We had lunch here with my brother-in-law and his wife, and all enjoyed it very much. The setting is simply beautiful in this well known village. The food was good, and the beer well kept. The lunch menu was quite extensive, with a good choice. We ate in the bar, not the restaurant, but found it comfortable. Prices are on... More

Lovely setting - stayed 3 nights - lovely welcome by young staff who carried case upstairs. Old building with very low ceilings and doorways (very difficult for anyone over 6ft ). Room comfortable but rather dingy not helped by grubby windows which were not clean and couldn't see out - discovered someone else's rubbish in bedside drawer. Felt like the... More

This has got to be the best place to get a Club sandwich ever, the bacon was great as was the thick pieces of chicken. Very good value and very professional staff. And the place was spotless. Well worth a visit and some lovely thatch cottages nearby.

My husband and I dropped in for lunch after visiting the Abbey, the restaurant area was good as was the service. Unfortunately, the food does not live up to its billing, particularly for the prices charges. My husband had cod and chips with mushy peas, which consisted of a small piece of rather over cooked fish and an enormous portion... More

Went there for lunch. My husband had a ploughman's which he said was very good. I had the club sandwich made with horrible white bread. It was all a bit dry. When you go into the hotel, it all looks very inviting but on closer inspection it had clearly not been cleaned that morning. The floor in the bar was... More

This establishment is really taking liberties. Smallest pot of tea for two people £5. We had one and a half cups between us and when the hot water (which was begrudgingly supplied) was added we were drinking nothing more than weak coloured water. Was asked for payment most discourteously with not even a please or thank you. For the price... More

We have holidayed in Milton Abbas on many occasions and the Hambro Arms, set in this beautiful Dorset village, never fails in terms of atmosphere and quality of food. The service is very good and the food delicious. I recently called in for lunch and had a Caesar Salad and was not disappointed. If the pub is busy, food can... More

Nice village pub. Food good but rather expensive. Very much a gastro-pub and not pub prices. My disabled air found it easy to get into but the timesheets not to easy to access. Staff very friendly and a small choice of ales.

The hotel is in the chocolate box village of Milton Abbas, car parking is off road at the front of the building. The hotel is very old with a thatched roof together with small windows it made the bedroom small. We stayed in Capability, the shower head loose and slid down the riser, although on the odd occasions it stayed... More
