welcome back to abbey mill

Abbey Mill is an award winning family business that has been trading in Tintern village since 1936. Our well-established and independent craft and shopping complex is currently run by the 3rd and 4th generations of the Rastall family. The Mill is set amidst breathtaking scenery in the heart of the Wye Valley on the banks of the River Wye and offers a relaxed setting for your enjoyment. Include Abbey Mill in your Tour of Wales itinerary, along with its historic buildings and recently renovated turning Old Water Wheel. The site includes many of the original mill buildings of Tintern Abbey, which was founded in 1131, and also the remains of the Tudor dockyard. Come and see the waterfall, watch the trout and shop and browse through the 5 distinctively different shops housed in the “Old Mill Buildings”. Admire the skill and patience of members of the Wye Valley Craft Association demonstrating their individual crafts for you. Then take a rest from it all in our friendly Coffee Shop and Restaurant, which is renowned in the area for both quality and value. Abbey Mill is open from February to December, Wednesday till Sunday, 10.30 am to 5pm. Evening opening for groups are very welcome by prior arrangement.



Come and enjoy freshly prepared food in our spacious new marquee, or relax with a cool drink and ice cream sundae under a sunny parasol. We now serve Mario's 'Utterly Mutterly' dog ice cream too, so don't forget to bring your dog!

We have lots of space for everyone at Abbey Mill! Our outdoor tables and seating are arranged for your comfort and safety and our friendly staff are always on hand to help.

If you're looking for an unusual gift or locally made treat, come and see our Summer range at The Mill and Cider Press Shops. We have 5 independent shops on site - why not pop in and see what's new at the Boat House and Spirit of the Green Man or from The Wye Valley Craft Association. You can also browse our new on-line shop at home, with deliveries to your doorstep. If you are planning a wedding or party, take a look at our catering service ideas - everything you love with none of the hassle!

We really look forward to welcoming you back soon and safely. Come and see us and have fun and support local!


Summer's here and there's nothing like Afternoon Tea on the lawn ... or in the conservatory cafe, or under a canvas awning by the sparkling River Wye, or even freshly delivered to your door! Have a look at our menus section to choose from our latest range of Summer suggestions. A delicious way to while away a sunny afternoon and celebrate Summer with family and friends.

Awesome little place

A little wonder. Awesome little place, dog friendly, great service. Popped in here as we were driving past and stopped at the little craft shops and then popped in here for some food. Wasn’t expecting much but was super surprised. Dog friendly and a great menu and lots of customers. Had the pie (was huge) as wife had the chowder that was filled with fish. Tripadvisor
