Eat, Drink, Relax and Enjoy … in style

Open all day, our warm, inviting and refurbished pub provides the perfect place to eat, drink, relax and enjoy yourself!

Set on the banks of the River Anton, the Town Mills brings Andover’s history back to life! The bustling market town of Andover, in Test Valley, with its attractive High Street and narrow walkways, dates back to Saxon times. Many of the town’s buildings reflect its 18th Century role as an important stop over destination for coaches travelling between London, Southampton and Oxford.

In 1086, ‘Andovere’ was recorded in the Domesday Book as belonging to the King, William the Conqueror, and the town had six mills all powered by the River Anton. The Town Mills is the only one that survives today.

In the 13th Century charges at ‘La Tunmulle’ covered the cost of the mill, weir and leet and the millstones. The present mill building dates from 1764. Exactly 200 years later the mill was re-built and continued to mill grain for a further 10 years. Following the closure of the mill the building was converted into a nightclub.

Over the following years the site became the home to a pub, club and restaurant. Since 2001, the Town Mills has been a traditional pub owned by Wadworths brewery. The Town Mills is one of very few pubs in the country with its mill wheel still intact and the river running through the pub. As you enter, peer through the viewing window and you are presented with Andover’s historic past with the River Anton beneath your feet.

The mill wheel, which is 2.59 metres in diameter, faithfully recreates the design of the original wheel. The work was carried out by Andover craftsmen and all the materials were locally sourced.

Today, the Town Mills public house offers traditional real ales and all the usual stocked favourites. A great menu celebrates home-cooked cuisine and is available throughout the day and evening. The pub also offers a three meat carvery on Sundays.

With a capacity of 240 guests and a restaurant happy to allocate 120 covers during the evening, the Town Mills is not to be considered a small pub.

Laid out across two floors there are plenty of seating areas throughout the pub. You can enjoy the lively bar area, soak up the ambience of the garden with the river Anton running past, or visit upstairs to relax in the unusual setting. The Town Mills in Andover, steeped in history, is a must visit for anyone. Come and visit the friendly, family pub in this busy market town.

We can offer a fabulous private Dining Room, Function Room and a Business Meeting room, with free WiFi and waitress service at no charge and if you need a ‘Party Room’ where you can celebrate the children’s birthdays with food and entertainment provided…..Call us….and we’ll even do the clearing up…Your event, Your way!
