The Mill At Rode
Steeped in history and nestled in the heart of the countryside, The Mill at Rode is a unique destination that has undergone a remarkable transformation. Once a bustling cloth mill, it is now a charming country eating house and bar. But this is not just a place for dining and drinks; it is a location that has been repurposed to serve a multitude of functions, including as a beautiful function room and an outdoor riverside terrace.
The Mill has an extensive history, dating as far back as 1559. The most well known record of The Mill was that of the Batten family, who purchased The Mill from the Hungerford family in 1741. Henry Batten Pooll took over the running of The Mill from his Great Uncle in 1807 and began running it as a cloth factory. The industry fell to a decline in 1850 and was reimagined as a corn mill until 1897. The Mill was again sold on from the Batten Pooll Rode Manor estate in 1955, and laid derelict until it was rescued in 1996.
Rumour has it that the colour "Royal Blue" was created at this Mill.
