We had been walking a local nature reserve with some friends who suggested a stop-off at Hornsbury Mill for coffee afterwards. Sounded good. It was nearby and we had often driven past. An hour later we came away with a timely reminder that idyllic surroundings do not compensate for lousy service. Idyllic the surroundings undoubtedly are. An old water mill... More

5 star hospitality. I arrived at 9.30pm as services were coming to a wind down and the friendly staff poured me a drink and kept me company for a couple of hours with banter and laughter. Very welcoming. Beds comfortable and the shower... Wow!!! Just ordered breakfast and waiting to dig in.

Sometimes when looking for a small, quiet place with excellent cuisine it can pay to think big, Hornsbury Mll is primarily a wedding venue - and no wonder, with its pretty, lush, lakeside setting off the Ilminster to Chard road - but within its comfortable interior lies a small restaurant (perhaps 25 covers) set beneath huge beams and showcasing through...
