New owners have renamed this place The Paddle. Prices gone up, service gone down and the food is not as good as it was. Shame

Expect excellent coffee and long queues at this recently re-launched Milford staple. I’ll leave a full review when the new bosses get round to changing the café’s name on TA - it’s now called The Paddle. But: suffice to say, the vibe and the location...are superb, the food is tasty, and the wait time will doubtless reduce as the kindly and enthusiastic staff continue to tweak their “system”.

Hurst on the Hill was my perfect village coffee shop . The coffee was the best. Jesse and his team were great.Food tasty and original. The young lady made the best coffee and baked fresh bread pudding. Jesse's gourmet evenings were to die for. A...very hard act to follow. The Paddle has taken over and the coffee is good and the egg and bacon ciabatta is excellent.They Unfortunately do not often have the Pain au Choc. Overall they are doing very well.More

Paddle on the Green has replaced Hurst on the Hill. Best coffee for miles around. Helpful staff & good service. But we know plastic visors are ineffective when it comes to preventing Covid. So why don’t staff wear masks instead?

We often stop here for coffee when we’re in the village. We rarely eat here but the food looks nice.

While visiting the area we called in late Sunday afternoon to see if we could get an ice cream we were advised that although they don’t do ice cream in cones they did have a home made cheesecake ice cream with macerated red berries, we...ordered one of these a black coffee and a slice of coffee and walnut cake, the attention to detail on serving were excellent and the dessert was exceptional, my husband said it was the best coffee he had all weekend, definitely the best ice cream I have had for many years. Great place in a beautiful settingMore

It was my first visit to Hurst on the Hill but it won't be my last. It's a lovely place to have lunch. Outside seating is available overlooking the green. Excellent coffee. Friendly staff. A must visit if you're in Milford on sea.
