“Perfect weekend break with the wife and 2year old”
Reviewed November 16, 2013 via mobile

Great location - beautiful spot in the countryside by a river ( hence the Mill in the title )
Great staff - attentive knowledgeable and very friendly without being overbearing
Good food - Decent wine selection but food was only good. Tempura prawns tasted "from frozen" and steak was only standard - expect better filet for my £30 but duck starter was very good.

Room was very comfortable and quiet even though we were at the front of the hotel.

Overall though we loved it - a real gem in the New Forest. Great for couples and small families like ours. We'll definitely be back!

Stayed November 2013, traveled with family

We both had steak. Really good but they need to give you a steak knife! I had soufflé to start, really nice. My husband had scallops. The dessert we chose the cheese and biscuits for £14.95 between us. This was way over priced. Setting is really lovely, romantic. I thought it as expensive of what it was but good.

First visit and wont be the last. Excellent service in beautiful surroundings. The Sunday lunch menu was delightful. Very warm welcome from staff, cannot fault the cuisine and service was brilliant. A real Sunday treat.

We only called in for a drink whilst 'passing through' on a rainy Friday afternoon, but we could easily have stayed all holiday. What a wonderful place! Fabulous garden sculptures, and a lovely mill stream. Meals can be eaten in a variety of places around the hotel - garden, verandah, patio or a lovely heated terrace, or inside, of course. There is also a beautiful dining room for family functions The hotel is so cosy, and we were made to feel very welcome by the friendly bar staff, who brought us newspapers to read by the gorgeous (real) log fire. Couples were checking in for the weekend, and I was so jealous!!

This is a beautiful old mill with lovely gardens and mill stream in a peaceful country setting which has been splendidly developed in recent years to provide the highest quality of dining and accommodation. It is extremely unlikely that anything would disappoint even the most discerning of guests. The menu and wine list comprise both imaginative and traditional choices, catering for probably all tastes. The service is excellent and decor, furnishings and accommodation are in my opinion faultless.

Yesterday we had a wonderful Anniversary Celebration for Friends. It could not have been more perfect (apart from a few wasps !). Delightful setting beside 2 mill streams, drinks wandering round widespread gardens with great sculptures and art, followed by a delicious lunch. The duck was mouth watering and the Chocolate Roulade really distinct.

There are many country pubs, inns, restaurants and boutique hotels, this one is one of the best I've ever been to. For me the main attraction was the staff, from the owner to the pot washer, every one of them will accept you, stranger or not, every one of them will have a smile for you, every one of them will chat to you. It's rare to find such a place that's not got a clique, and if there is one, well, you're welcome to join!

Great beers, lagers and spirits and if you fancy some nosh .... It's tasty posh nosh at very reasonable prices. Highly recommended.

I will be returning, maybe even will become part of the furniture, worth staying sober for if you're driving and if not, well, if they've room, stay the night!

Not to be missed.
