About Us

Hillbrush has been manufacturing cleaning equipment in Mere, Wiltshire, since 1922. In April 2017 we launched our visitor centre, Visit Hillbrush, incorporating our gift shop of cleaning and personal grooming products, our amazing locally sourced restaurant, and our interactive brushmaking museum. We are the perfect venue for families looking for activities in Wiltshire, or travellers looking for a comfortable, friendly stop. We are just a two minute drive from the A303 Mere and Stourhead exit. We offer electric car charging, loyalty cards and gift vouchers. We are family friendly, with activity booklets available for children. Dogs are more than welcome on our beautiful south-facing terrace. We are open on Friday evenings, with a dedicated specials menu every week.

Our Services

We want to make sure your visit is as interesting and relaxed as possible. Here are a few of the key services we offer.

Our Restaurant

Our restaurant in Mere, Wiltshire, offers the finest locally sourced food, coffee and tea in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. We are lucky to work closely with local food and ingredient suppliers, and we are extremely proud to have been granted a Food Hygiene Rating of 5.


We offer a selection of beautiful homeware items in our gift shop, situated just inside our visitor centre. Whatever the occasion, we are certain you will find something special, from personal grooming products to quirky kitchenware and general home tools.

Our Museum

At our visitor centre, Visit Hillbrush, you can take a look around our museum and discover the history of brush making and the company. Many of our displays are colourful and tactile, and there are areas especially designed for children, so bring the whole family!

Visit Hillbrush at Christmas

Visit Hillbrush is starting to look festive now that we have our Christmas trees up in the restaurant, three in all! You might be wondering why we have hung small white brushes on our trees — we are a brush manufacturer, as well as a popular restaurant, museum and shop! Who would have thought that brushes could make such unique decorations?

(For anyone curious, the brushes are the Niche Brush that we make on site in our factory. You can find out more about them here.)

We are also delighted to point you in the direction of our Christmas menu, specially created by our chef and full of festive treats! Book your Christmas dinner now by contacting us on 01747 440077 or emailing us at visit@hillbrush.com.
