This is a first class place, we went on a Sunday evening and it was full! Food, Service and ambiance were really special.

“Wonderful English setting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 7, 2013

After a bit of searching for a good place to eat in the New Forest, I came across this place. The setting on a warm summer's day was idyllic, with beautiful gardens, sculptures and the stream combined with excellent local food. The service was first class, a rarity in England. The whole team should be congratulated.

“An ideal place for lunch on a sunny day”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 30, 2013 via mobile

We have enjoyed all our visits to the Gordleton Mill. In the summer it is a delight to sit outside by the mill stream. The food was delicious, whether on the more limited set lunch or a la carte. Despite the restaurant being very busy the service was excellent, all the staff being polite and attentive. We look forward to returning.

“A lovely night away in a beautiful setting with great food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2013

We've just returned from a night at the Mill, celebrating friends' wedding anniversary. Liz Cottingham, the owner, is to be congratulated on what she has achieved since taking over what was just a pub some 10 years or more ago. Attention to detail is excellent, from the décor and design of the very comfortable rooms and the pieces of art in the restaurant and bar to the delicious nibbles we were served with our drinks in the garden and the local produce featuring on a dinner menu which pretty much had something to suit everyone. The waiter service was extremely good - attentive and knowledgeable which, without wishing to sound patronising, is often a rarity outside of major cities. Before we left this morning we spent a lovely half hour following the art sculpture walk around the beautifully laid out gardens. The millstream and resident ducks are a delight!

“A treat to find”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2013

Came across this restaurant/pub by accident whilst taking an extended weekend break. We were immediately drawn to try it out because of the warm charm that the building projected. It was at dusk and the soft lighting and ivy covered walls were idyllic. We were so glad we did. The food was to die for and presented in a professional and artistic way. My wife was in heaven with the desert. We hope to come back and try the bed, breakfast and evening meal package stay that's if our senses can handle the experience!

The only down side was the cost, but if you want the best sometimes that comes at a price so make sure if you visit it's a special occasion .
