This “lovely renovated” watermill, in “pleasant grounds with a mill pond”, makes a great setting for chef-patron Lee Bye’s cooking, which is showcased in “two different restaurants” – the more formal “upstairs room, which is great for dinner”, and the “Tipi on the Stream, a fantastic casual outdoor eatery” which wows all comers with its cocktails and seafood. Either way, “service is personal, friendly and attentive” and the food “excellent and reasonably priced”.

Limited but very enthusiastic feedback this year regarding Lee Bye’s oak-beamed dining room inside a 250-year-old watermill, which recently expanded with the acquisition of adjoining property. In October 2021 its restaurant was recognised by the AA as one of the country’s best (promoted to a very-hard-to-win four rosettes), but our most enthusiastic feedback this year related to its “lovely tipi out by the mill pond... more casual dining”.

Beautiful oak-beamed dining room in a “very well-preserved” eighteenth-century building – a watermill until its conversion into a boutique hotel almost 50 years ago. Chef Lee Bye’s menu is “not huge” but results are often highly rated. Persistent gripes about “sloppy service”, though, suggest that “staff need more training”. Top Tip: “afternoon tea is always a treat, especially in the summer when you sit outside overlooking the large pond”.

"Lovely renovated building in pleasant grounds with mill pond. Lunch was a simple affair cooked well and served with a big smile. A good experience."
