Description: Situated on the River Tillingbourne and surrounded by stunning countryside, this beautiful timber-framed mill dates from Medieval times. We've gone to great lengths to preserve the character of the building, with its jumble of nooks and crannies, ancient creaking floorboards, and a forest of oak beams. You'll find a warm welcome, a decent wine list, and good honest food cooked with care.

We had an Easter meal here with family. We had the perfect table where we were out of the way of everyone else. Our waitress was amazing – she was so friendly, full of energy and seemed to actually enjoy her job. I’m sorry we didn’t get your name! The food was lovely. I had the vegetarian bake roast dinner. And the double chocolate brownie was really rich but delicious. I would recommend a visit.

Having just completed a 7-mile walk along the Surrey Hills from Dorking, we discovered this wonderful Pub along the A25 in Gomshall Village. Having rather muddy feet we specifically chose a table away from the carpet, and was greeted by the host. A selection from the bar menu was served without a long wait, and the drinks welcomed. The WaterMill is visible from the interior through glass inspection hatches.

We left knowing that another visit later in fine summer weather was a must. For those who misbehave there are some stocks outside!

Took my hiking group 'Rambles & Roasts' for dinner after this month's hike. It was great! Weather was great for April and we could sit outside. The staff are very accommodating, friendly & flexible. Everyone loved their roast with many regular group members saying it was the best they have had! Love the atmosphere of this place both inside on a winter's day by the fire, or in the garden in summer. Will definitely be back.

Service and food quality let down a charming setting.
We were seated promptly but getting attention, placing orders and receiving courses or wine took far too long. Our server's attitude was "indifferent" at best, seemingly disinterested and unsmiling throughout. Finished plates were left littering our table for 20 minutes or more after each course. The food quality was only average, with the focus seemingly on volume rather than style or finesse. Such a nice setting; so disappointing an experience.

We visited on a Saturday lunch time, when most of the tables were taken. Our order was taken in good time, but 50 minutes later we were still waiting for our food. When the coq au vin arrived, we immediately noticed the halved jacket potatoes on the plates and commented that we were expecting roast potatoes. A little later the waitress returned to point out the menu said 'roast new potatoes'. Whether new or not, there was no evidence of roasting, either oil/fat or browning. There were two pieces of chicken on each plate, one on the bone was tender, while the second, larger piece was tough by comparison. Another member of the party requested brown sauce to go with the fish. A full bottle of HP sauce was supplied, which would have been fine, if only it had been possible to get some out of the bottle; my son gave up after much hitting and shaking of the bottle The fish pie was reportedly good, but the portion didn't look overly generous, although the plates were large.
We stayed for desserts, which we enjoyed. However from arrival to departure took 2 hours 25 minutes for just two courses, so it was as well we weren't working to a deadline. We noticed others who arrived after us were served more quickly and left before us.
The final disappointment was in the disabled toilet, where there was no hook and the coat was 'hung up' on the floor, so will require washing.
All of these issues could be fixed easily, and may well not be encountered by other visitors, but their coincidence on a single visit of four people took the shine off what we had hoped would be a good family occasion.
