I think Roger B (below) gives a perfect description of the setting for this wonderful historic building, now being usefulyl employed as a pub and restaurant. The food is always good, and the beer is usually high quality, though I have had the odd dodgy pint here before. No ccomplaints on my last visit though which involved Speckled Hen which was well kept. On a warm Summer's day, it is well worth walking across the Watermeadows to find this pub for food and, if needed, a meal.

Smashing location, idyllic beer garden for a summer lunch, albeit a bit pricey, but worth it! Very nice food, average service, good beer.

It would be hard to find a pub in such an idyllic and picturesque setting, gazing across the water meadows to Salisbury Cathedral as the River Nadder pours through the 3 mill races into the large pond inhabited by mallards and swans. Parts of the building date back to around 1135 and it was converted to a paper mill in the mid 16th century. Whilst the pub itself is sited in the old Mill building, the restaurant now extends across to the Victorian warehouse next door where the river can be seen flowing underneath through a viewing window. The pub consists of 2 fairly small beamed rooms with flagstone floors and what does like a fairly modern brick fireplace although I couldn't help be a little underwhelmed with the interior overall. Of course it is on balmy summer's days that the pub comes into its own with a sizeable beer garden next to the river at the back and benches on the front terrace overlooking the pond. 3 Greene King Ales available (IPA, Speckled Hen and Abbott) and if one does have to endulge in Greene King products, then the Old Mill is probably about as good as you can get to do it.
