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,

What to do with your leftover rhubarb
September 28, 2016
Rhubarb is virtually indestructible and is about the only fruit or vegetable I can rely on in the garden! My rhubarb was inherited from previous owners of our old house and moved with us to this one, so is at least seventeen years old. It just keeps on and on growing from March until the first hard frost. If you’re the same and still have some left and are bored of rhubarb crumble and thinking, What shall I do with my rhubarb? then here’s a couple of suggestions: Rhubarb streusels and rhubarb muffins. Both these recipes have been adapted from magazines, and you’ll need plenty of paper cupcake cases. The streusels especially, are a hit in the family…..
Jeremy Loops concert at Perranporth, Cornwall
September 14, 2016
The campervan couldn’t get into the main car park at Perranporth by about three inches, so we parked on the cliff-top, which gave us a beautiful view of the bay and sun beginning to set into the ocean. It isn’t often bands we like venture into the South-West and we were gutted when Jeremy Loops tickets for Bristol sold out before we had chance to buy some; however it was the perfect excuse to go to Cornwall when we saw he was playing there too. We’d never been to The Watering Hole before – it’s a cafe/restaurant/gig venue literally in the middle of the beach. It must’ve been a right pain in the bum to get all the band gear over there! The tickets said the doors opened at nine, so we got there about ten minutes early, sorted out our wrist-bands and bought a drink to sit outside with and watch the sun sink into the water….
