The Hambro Arms offers exceptional food and luxury accommodation. The rooms are newly-refurbished, country-styled bedrooms tea and coffee making facilities, flat screen TVs and en-suites with bath and shower.
In 1780, Joseph Damer, Lord Milton, the first Earl of Dorchester and owner of Milton Abbey, decided that the nearby village, Middleton, was disturbing his vision of rural peace. He commissioned architect Sir William Chambers and landscape gardener Capability Brown (both of whom had already worked on the Abbey building and grounds) to design a new village, Milton Abbas, in a wooded valley (Luccombe Bottom) to the south of the Abbey.
Most of the existing villagers were relocated here, and the previous village was demolished and the site landscaped (most of the old settlement now lies under an ornamental lake). Today, Milton Abbas features on many picture postcards of rural Dorset. The 36 quaint white-washed and thatched cottages are each fronted by a lawn; originally, a chestnut tree was planted between each dwelling, but, aged and ravaged by disease, the trees were removed in 1953. The village has expanded to 256 dwellings since it was founded.
Breakfast is served from 8.00am - 10.00am. Food at The Hambro Arms is prepared using the freshest and best quality local and seasonable produce delivered daily from the markets, with changing specials and a children's menu. The bar and restaurant offer both modern, innovative food and more traditional pub food seven days a week. In addition, a traditional Roast is available every Sunday lunch. The pub has two spacious bars. Customers can relax in front of the open fire and enjoy a range of local ales and spirits or choose from the wide selection of quality wines.
From Monday to Friday The Hambro bar and restaurant is closed between 2.30pm and 6.00pm.
