The Mill at Elstead
This characterful historic venue has occupied its current spot over the River Wey since 1648. Since its inception it has functioned as a corn mill, a factory for military braid, and even a World War II hospital. Since its transformation into a pub, the traditional features of the mill have been coupled with cosy sofas and a well-stocked bar. The menu is full of hearty traditional dishes, so we’d recommend working up an appetite first by exploring the beautiful surrounding area. Tuck into the likes of pan-roasted duck breast with heritage carrots, or North Atlantic langoustines with garlic butter and triple-cooked chips. This eatery also does a superb Sunday roast, with a great range of options for all the family. Visitors with pets may prefer to sit in the picturesque riverside garden, which becomes a real suntrap in summer, but pups are also very welcome inside this cosy pub.
