A beautifully refurbished 11th Century Mill, turned pub, near Guildford

Welcome to The Gomshall Mill. Located in the beautiful, and historical rural village of Gomshall, near Guildford, on the A25. This building forms a huge part of Gomshall's history and has existed since the 11th century, as seen in the Domesday Book.

The Mill formed an integral part of the local industry, powered by the River Tillingbourne, and was still grinding flour as a working corn mill until 1952. Thereafter it became the village's post office, before being transformed into a beautiful, award-winning riverside pub in 2010. However, the Grade II listed site was fast falling into disrepair and was subsequently closed in 2021.

The derelict pub was purchased by New Dawn Pubs and, following a full refurbishment, re-opened its doors in December 2022 thus ensuring a secure future for its local community, and as a destination pub for walkers and explorers alike.

In December 2023, the team won the Pub of the Year award (Gold), which was voted for by Tourism South East and Visit England, an accolade for achieving the very highest of standards within the industry.

Excellent service, great food. 
"The restaurant is beautiful and has a warm atmosphere. From booking (asked for a dog friendly area and was given one) through to us being very late (they still accommodated us) through to the food - all was excellent. For me though, the highlight was our server. She was extremely attentive, friendly and couldn't have been better. It's so refreshing to get genuine service with a smile. I'm sorry I didn't get her name - smiley blonde who replaced the dish one of us threw vinegar all over, thank you!"

Beautiful rustic interior
"Been coming here for 30 years as the building is beautiful, not many places can boast a stream with a mill wheel running under the restaurant. And the food was fabulous!"

Will definitely return
"Tried the new menu and had the chicken and sea bass dishes between us. Both were delicious. As was the strawberry and rhubarb crumble for dessert. Great location, great decor and ambience and very attentive service. Will definitely return."

Best Sunday roast ever! With amazing staff!
"Mother’s Day lunch, just me and my son. Set menu but a few great options. Food was delicious! One of the best Sunday beef roasts I’ve had in a while. Huge portions, succulent pink meat, crispy and fluffy potatoes, enormous and perfect Yorkshire pud (says a Yorkshire lass born), yummy veg too. We couldn’t manage the 3 courses on set menu so they packaged up the starters and desserts for us to take home! ( The chocolate brownie and pannacotta were divine!) we haven’t been here in years… now it’s my favourite place! Thank you all at The Gomshall Mill, the staff were fabulous too!"
