The Old Mill

1 High Street, Portishead, BS20 6AF

Sat-Sun   12:00pm- 23:00pm

As old as the town of Portishead, it was once a tidal watermill with warehousing for grains and its own wharf. The archway at the front of the building was on the waterline so that milled grains could be floated out on small boats to the port and out onto the Severn. Many old photographs of early Portishead feature the mill as a prominent landmark.

The Old Mill has been remodelled as a modern high-quality restaurant, pub and wine bar. The original millstone has been preserved and is on permanent display on the high street at the front of the building.
