Pubs, Hotels and B&B’s

Here are a few Eating and Sleeping places near the lake that might be helpful when you are arranging your fishing trip.

Lunch or Evening Meal?

All within 5-10 minutes’ drive from the lake      Good lunch or evening food, open all day most days. small traditional English pub / garden sitting area.

Please tell Chris the landlord what you caught and where you were fishing!  He may even get chef to cook your trout for you if you ask nicely….     Good food, large restaurant / pub bar area / garden

Great food and an overnight stay!!

Why rush home after a great days fly fishing. The Mill Arms is a stone’s throw from the lake and serves great food in comfortable surroundings, has a  lovely multi level pub garden’ and 6 recently refurbished en-suite bedrooms, so the whole group can stay in one place! They will even send you off with a hearty breakfast.    Local Thai restaurant with small bar area.

If you would like to stay in a luxury B&B just up the road in Houghton then let Andrew and Christine know where you are fishing and you will get priority treatment and a scrummy breakfast. We would warn you though that Andrew is a bit of an expert at casting the dry fly !


For local Hotels we would suggest contacting one of several hotels in the Stockbridge area (which is 10 to 15 minutes drive from the lake). All can be found on trip advisor or a similar website by searching for hotels in the Stockbridge Hampshire area.
