Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 9, 2014

This was our second visit to the Mill at Gordleton and we had another fabulous experience. Beautiful grounds (despite the wet weather), delightful staff, a very attractive room and delicious and affordable meals in the restaurant. Sounds like perfection? Pretty close in fact. And we'll definitely be back...

What a lovely place really enjoyed gardens but very diserpointed with the food, very over priced the chef needs to taste the food, it is in need of seasioning and more flaviour.
Will be back but just for a drink to enjoy garden, if prices drop and food improves l will try the food again.

Room Tip: only eat did not stay

We spent 2 nights here recently and had an excellent time. The staff were without exception friendly and helpful, the food was also top quality with 3 different menus to choose from. The signature menu (a la carte) consisted of the Mill`s favourite dishes. We both chose the confit duck, I then had a blackberry souffle while my husband chose the prune and almond bakewell. The set menu changes weekly and from that we had plenty of choice and at £27-95 for 3 courses was good value. There was also a bar menu. The restaurant was full both nights and the bar was buzzing with locals as well as guests. The breakfast was excellent, the usual choices of fruits, yogurts, cereals and freshly-squeezed orange juice followed by a selection of cooked food with the best bacon I have tasted in a long time. Toast, croissants and home-made jams completed the meal.
Our room was nicely furnished, appeared to have been recently decorated and was spotlessly clean with a king-sized comfortable bed. It overlooked the lovely gardens and the mill stream.
The gardens are stunning, lots of corners to explore with the millstream running through and to add interest lots of sculptures by local artists were dotted around.
An excellent stay, a pity we didn`t have longer but we would definitely stay there again if we visit the New Forest in the future

A friend took me here on Sunday. My first visist. She had said it was beautiful but that hardly did the Mill justice. The hotel/bar/restaurant is set in stunningly kept grounds, where the Mill water hurries down stream and gardens are set around the waters. There is ample outdoor space to sit and eat, should the weather permit (they also have outdoor heaters for colder weather) and whilst doing, have the enviable views of the beautiful gardens, wonderful ornaments, blue tits, chaffinches, wrens swinging on hanging food trays, masses of daffodils and other spring flowers and the sweet sound of birds singing, but out of sight. Inside is just as wonderful. Beautifully decorated and furnished, so tasteful. The service was exemplary and we were made to feel totally pampered, which added to the enjoyment of our lunch. The food was excellent and we ended with an orange cheesecake which sent us into seventh heaven! A must have is the warm brown walnut and raisin bread that is brought before the meals - I could have just eaten them! I've lived in the area for 16 years and never knew this existed - what a shame, but now I've found it, I will be a regular visitor and will keep you updated as the seasons change.

Great location just off the New Forest, but ask for a room on the rear or side as front road can be a bit noisey early in the morning. Superb food and reasonably priced and a real gem of a location not far from the coast and easy to explore into Lymington or cross on the ferry to the Isle of Wight for a day out.

We had our wedding night in their stunning "Miller Suite". Now we return for anniversaries and romantic escapes. Nothing could be faulted. Stunning attention to detail. Personal service. Lovely location and rooms. Food is excellent. Gets my vote!

Just back from one night here, and a lovely break. The staff are friendly and helpful, and the breakfast is amazing - best breakfast had out for a while. The food in the restaurant in the evening is a little bit expensive, but you can have the bar menu in the bar if you prefer. We ate in the restaurant and the food was delicious. Bedroom was nice and spacious, and the homemade shortbread was a nice touch. Hope to go back sometime.

We are a pretty privately owned restaurant with 7 lovely individually decorated bedrooms, serving gorgeous local or organic food. We try not to be pretentious, preferring instead to be informal and friendly, but we are still totally committed to quality and service.
