Sprawling pub/restaurant in the centre of Gomshall on the A25 road between Guildford and Dorking.
The building used to be a water mill and the water stream stills runs through and beneath the building although the wheel itself is no longer in place.
Up until recently the Gomshall Mill was part of the Bluebeckers chain and although that’s no longer the case not much seems to have changed.
As you enter the Gomshall Mill there is a bar and a seasting area to the left and it’s OK to just have some drinks there. A corridor off to the right leads to the dining area. There are some balcony seating areas too although they may only open at busier times.
One improvement over the Bluebeckers days is the quality of the real ale selection. There are 4 hand pumps and the choices are generally taken from smaller breweries rather than nationals or regionals. On my last visit there were beers from King’s of Horsham, Andwells and Hogs Back.
The food is reasonably priced and very tasty and is available at most times. There is a regular menu and some specials are occasionally available. Portions are fairly big so you shouldn’t leave hungry. Child-sized portions of some main courses and desserts are available too.
There is seating outside the front of the pub and a sizeable garden with a children’s play area out the back. The fast moving mill stream runs through the garden but it’s well fenced off.
The staff are attentive and efficient. I would definitely reccomend the Gomshall Mill if you’re in the area.
