AA Three Rosette Restaurant
Good Hotel Guide Review
A recent make-over has turned this 244-year-old mill into a thoroughly modern restaurant-with-rooms. Under strapping beams in the main mill, long-serving chef/patron Lee Bye serves ‘ambitious dinners’ (‘best undertaken on an empty stomach’) in the restaurant. Dietary requirements are handled with ‘generosity and graciousness’, perhaps Worlington duck egg, Clem’s carrot, oyster mushrooms for vegetarians, ‘lamb rump cooked beautifully pink’ for their omnivorous table-mates. ‘Afterwards, a neat bottle of sloe gin left bedside was much appreciated.’ The ‘impressive’ boutiquey bedrooms (no twin beds) include six ‘nooks’ in the meadow (2 with outside hot tubs), and ‘large, well-thought-out rooms, in a good-looking clapboard building’. Freshly squeezed orange juice in the mini-fridge and ‘dreamy’ views towards the millstream are pleasing finishing touches. Guide readers this year say, ‘We liked the modern, minimalist bathroom, but there are flip plugs in the basin – contact lens wearers beware!’ At breakfast (‘picture-perfect’ French toast, ‘deliciously tart home-made raspberry jam’, home-baked brioche), a window seat overlooking the millpond and its cadre of swans is a must.
