The Mill Hotel and Restaurant Review

Near Lyndhurst, in the New Forest; Hampshire

The problem was, we got caught in the Friday traffic with everyone going home; and I suppose many of them felt a stop-off at The Mill would be ideal.

The wait for our food was almost an hour – which, in fairness, we were warned about before I ordered at the bar. They were just far too under-staffed. I had to wait ten minutes to place the order and everyone was sitting down at tables that needed to be cleaned. The toilets needed cleaning as well – I decided to wait till we got back to the campsite; and that’s saying something!

However, after the moaning; the food was very nice. Husband and 1 kid had a cheeseburger and chips and other kid had a chickenburger and chips. Not very healthy, I know, but I was over-ruled. All 3 of them said theirs were lovely, and they were certainly bigger than we expected; with 2 large pieces of chicken in kid 2’s burger.

I had half a roast chicken and veg. The chicken was lovely, but the “new potatoes” weren’t; and the peas and carrots were out of a frozen packet, I’m sure. We did choose from the “2 for £10” menu, and you get what you pay for.

Despite my disgruntles , the service was efficiant and friendly, though clearly they were rushed off their feet. They also had a free large children’s play den that looked very good; however ours couldn’t try it due to being closed for flood damage. For a cheap family meal, I’d go there again.

Eating out, Food,

Celebrating the new Feather & Black bedroom furniture shop in Bath, Somerset
June 15, 2018
Most of the shops were closing and only a few people milled around the beautiful Georgian streets of Bath as I walked up from the Southgate car park to Northumberland place, a little street to the right as you go up the hill of the main high street. The new premises of Feather and Black are beautiful and is one of those rare shops that haven’t completely hidden all the original architectural features of the building. I’ll be honest though, when I walked into the opening party, I didn’t notice them at first because I was too busy looking at the lovely furniture and accessories….
Negotiating lipstick with piercings and a wonky mouth!
March 3, 2017
I have never really worn lipstick. In my mind, it just hasn’t suited me – I have a very thin top lip and and a very fat bottom lip and overall my mouth is very lop-sided. I could happily go on being self-critical, but I won’t! I also think part of the problem is I was trying the wrong colours – brown was very much the fashion in the ’90s when I was playing around with make-up, and although I never really thought lipstick fashions were a thing, I have noticed that brown lipsticks are back….
Making a floral display with vintage bottles
How to make an easy but impressive floral display for the whole year
October 9, 2017
I have a thing for old bottles. Whenever I see one in a flea market or boot sale, I always pick it up; wonder what it once held and who in its history has owned it; but end up putting it down again because I’ve never had a reason to buy it (aren’t I good?!). However, I’ve finally thought of a reason to buy a whole load of them! And because I was impatient, I bought a job lot of vintage clear glass bottles, but actually it would’ve been fun to build up the collection over time, picking one up here and there. I thought this would be a nice quick and easy blog post just sharing my flower arrangement idea, but I ended up being pulled into the time-draining vortex of the internet discovering all sorts of things about old bottles! Did you know there are collectors’ clubs and events all over the country? If I had time for another hobby, I can see that vintage bottle collecting could become one of them!…..
