Cams Mill Fareham – Cosy Country but food a let down

So when I got asked on a date, one of the most exciting things I like, is not only meeting someone new, but going somewhere new. So when Mr X suggested here I thought great why not!

They say:

A beautiful recreation of the tidal mill that stood here 100 years ago, Cams Mill in Fareham is now a stunning destination pub. Traditional features give the Mill an authentic ambience, and make it a special, historic place to indulge in delectable waterside dining.

Cams-Mill-22There can be few more peaceful spots than Cams Mill to enjoy a leisurely lunch, a quick pint or an evening meal. Relax in style in our spacious oak-framed barn, savouring beautiful views of the estuary, and the cosy warmth of our log fires.

Come in from the cold, sit beneath our beautiful oak beams with a hot drink and look out onto the estuary. With real log fires, warming winter ales and delicious, freshly cooked food, we’re the perfect place to be on a cold winter’s day. Cams-Mill-9

With a large patio garden that seats up to 60 guests, Cams Mill is without doubt the best pub in Fareham for soaking up the summer sun. Enjoy an alfresco ale or two in tranquil surroundings, looking out over the creek.

I say:

Easy to get to and ample parking this is a great meeting place. the menu is good and variable but it does feel like a chain pub. In the summer this place would be stunning to sit outside of an evening looking at the water with a cold cider. The menu was good and  and tasty I had the special of mushroom linguine as they had sold out of the mozzarella salad and were making it with feta?? the portion was just right and was delicious. It was  supposed to be with a goats cheese sauce which I could not taste at all it was more of a carbonara. For dessert I treated myself to eaton mess which was served in a quaint jam jar, there was too little strawberry for my linking with no mint and pre bought meringue, there was too much cream (at least a third) and I ended up leaving some.

I think the food was relatively overpriced for a what it was, but for a casual date night for a drink.
