Names can be deceiving. And that's certainly true of this Kensington hotel bar. Because although it’s called The Stables at the Milestone, it's not just a place to pass through on the way to somewhere else. This bar should be your ultimate destination.
Set in a Grade II listed building, the beautiful 17th century architecture and extensive drinks menu belies such a modest name. We believe that commitment to exceeding expectations is the secret to a truly great bar. The drink is undoubtedly at the heart of everything. Yet it's the extra touches – from enticing surroundings to world-class service – that really set it apart.
Wrackleford offers some four miles of Dry Fly Fishing on the River Frome, divided into individual fishing beats, most with their own small fishing hut. Each fishing boat is rented by the day and we can now provide complete fishing equipment, from rods and waders to flies and leader, and given a little notice we can offer a fully guided day with instruction. The possibility exists for individual fishing on the river, or for organised groups of up to 12 who specifically come for fishing.
