We had not been to the Mill for a meal for quite some time so decided to try a lunch. From the moment that we arrived until we left, there was not one thing to criticise. We both had an excellent meal in lovely surroundings with brilliant service and aall at very reasonable prices. This is going to be one... More

We stayed here at the weekend as we were meeting people in the Warners hotel for a birthday meal. I think hotel is a bit overpriced nice place but accommodation had a few marks on the carpet and the bathroom shower had mould so perhaps needed a bit of a thorough clean. Breakfast was ok again basic for the room... More

I cannot speak highly enough for Hornsbury Mill. From the minute me and my now husband looked around as a potential wedding venue to the day of our wedding nothing could have gone wrong.

The quantity of food provided for my friend's wedding breakfast was poor. There was 7 of us on one table and between us we were given one tiny dish of veg. Condiments were not offered for the meat. There was no extra gravy jug provided. Shocking considering the money paid per head.

We enjoyed our stay here at the Mill although felt some of the common areas of the accommodation could do with a little repair now its the end of the season. There were some cleaning issues with the bathroom and some mould or discolouration around the shower which although harmless is not ideal to look at. The staff are extremely... More

Hornsbury Mill is a fantastic location for a wedding or just a short break. The room was functional with everything that is needed. The food is enjoyable, with a good evening menu and an all you can eat English breakfast. The service is good, if at times a little slow, as Jane is busy trying to sort everything out for... More

Lovely setting and not at all busy - in fact we were the only visitors to begin with! My friend had decided to take me there as a birthday treat for one of their afternoon teas - at lunchtime.

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
