It’s our first birthday on Friday 13th April! We will be open that Friday evening, from 6pm – 9pm, so join us for a lovely evening meal, and have a drink of your choice on us when you order a main meal!* We have new items on our menu and will offer a selection of specials.
(*Only available on Friday 13th.)
Pre-booking is recommended, although not required.
Announcement: Visit Hillbrush will be temporarily closed on Monday 19th March, from 2:30pm. We will be shut all afternoon for a private function. Apologies for any inconvenience this causes!
But don’t worry, we will be open again on Tuesday 20th March onwards, with our usual host of delicious food and drink in our restaurant, and our interactive museum and shop to keep you and your family entertained!
If you’re out and about this weekend and looking for somewhere to have breakfast, we have a delicious menu available that is served all day! Many of our meals are ideal starts to the day, ranging from big Full English Breakfasts that are incredibly filling, to lighter bites like our Eggs Benedict, scrambled eggs and our selection of paninis.
All of our dishes are prepared on site using the finest, freshest local ingredients. There are plenty of amazing meals to choose from, including a “build your own” option. We hope you’ll stop by on your travels!
Today our Foodie Feature is all about the hearty Full English Breakfast! This classic dish is (contrary to its name) available all day in our restaurant. It features two bacon rashers, two sausages, two eggs, baked beans, hash browns, tomato and mushrooms, and if that’s not enough it also comes served with a side of toast and butter.
It’s delicious. It’s filling. We hope you will stop in on your travels and give it a try. We know you won’t be disappointed!
The school holidays are here and you might be wondering about family activities and days out with the kids available to you this summer. If you have kids you know how important it is to engage their active minds, and at Visit Hillbrush we offer a range of things to keep you and the little ones occupied!
If you’re out and about and looking for somewhere to grab a bite to eat and a drink, our restaurant is an ideal and welcoming venue. We offer a large menu of locally sourced food and snacks, an artisan coffee bar, and a drinks menu. We are extremely family friendly and there is even a special menu just for children. We have parasols on our terrace, so it is possible to spend time both inside and out to enjoy the weather. Dogs are also welcome on the terrace (guide dogs are welcome inside, too).
Once you have sated your appetite, you can browse the many colourful wares in our shop, many of which make fantastic gifts. Then there is our brushmaking museum, where you can learn about the many different brush types and fibres from around the world, as well as discover our company history which dates back to 1922! There are tactile displays for the kids, engaging videos, and displays full of quirky and interesting brushware.
We also offer free Kids Activity Booklets (you can ask for these at the tills) and offer a children’s seating area where they can colour and fill out their booklets.
We do hope you’ll pop in to see us this summer!
Glastonbury festival gates open this evening and it looks like the week is going to be a scorcher. With many of you travelling through the area we imagine you’ll be looking for ways to keep cool, hydrated and well fed! We welcome festival goers to our restaurant where we offer a nice selection of beers, as well as many non-alcoholic cold and hot drinks! Our menu is packed with variety, and all ingredients are locally sourced because we believe in supporting fellow local businesses.
We hope you will drop by on your way either to or from the festival! Find us just off the A303, Gillingham/Mere exit.
