  • The Team at Milling Barn are incredible, Verity the events manager helped us to organise the day with planning meetings and was there to answer any questions. On the day of the wedding the team set up the barn as requested, the food was superb and waiting staff were professional and friendly. Steph the events coordinator made the day run like clockwork and kept everything running to schedule. We had no issues at all and would recommend Milling Barn to everyone. Thank you to everyone involved, we had a fantastic day!
    Claire & Mike - August 2019

  • Me and Claire would like to say thank you for everything on Saturday (10th August 2019), we had a fantastic time and it couldn’t have gone any better.
    Firstly we’d like to thank Verity for the planning meetings and support in leading up to the day, without her help we wouldn’t have been organised and prepared like we were.
    Secondly, the team on Saturday were fantastic! The venue was set up perfectly and staff were attentive, friendly and professional throughout the day. The canapes and dinner service was exceptional. The food was brought out quickly and or guests commented on how nice the food was. The waiting staff were so quick at clearing the plates and bringing out the next dish, you couldn’t fault them.
    Steph ensured the day ran like clockwork and was fantastic in helping to manage the suppliers. There was a problem with the sound keep cutting out but Steph explained the situation and worked with the DJ to try and stop this from happening. We understand this was the noise limiter and because of the location so we had no issues with this (the guests didn’t realise either).
    Thank you once again for an amazing day!
    Mike & Claire

  • We got married on the 1st June 2019 and Milling Barn exceeded all expectations that we had. Verity and Steph as well as the rest of the team at the venue made sure everything ran like clockwork and everything was perfect. All communications were responded too straight away and the phone was answered every time I called. Verity made one of the most stressful things a lot less stressful and was always very accommodating. I have had so many comments on how beautiful the venue is from our guests and I couldn't agree more with how wonderful it looked. We also had the advantage of having the new patio in the dressing room and the new bedrooms which were lovely! I would 100% recommend Milling Barn to anyone thinking of getting married - it really was the most magical day and better than we could have ever imagined. Thank you again Verity & Team. xx

  • Dear Verity and team
    Whilst the weather gods were annoying and we didn’t get the woodland wedding, We couldn’t have had a better/happier/more magical day. Your help and support were really great guys, thank you so so much. It can’t be easy doing what you guys do, but you make it appear so, and really take the stress and worry off our hands.
    I’ll whole-heartedly recommend milling barn to anyone.
    Thanks a lot.
    Megan and james. Xx (June 2019)

  • I just wanted to say thank you again for Friday! We had the best day ever, and all of our guests said how beautiful the venue was and how good the food was.
    All the staff we spoke to in the lead up to and on the day were all amazing and couldn’t do enough to help us.
    So thank you!

  • We loved Milling Barn from the first time we visited. It had clearly been carefully restored and we really appreciated all the open space and the opportunity to get married outside (English weather permitting, of course!) We wanted a slightly different schedule to the day and the team were really flexible, managing to accommodate everything we wanted. The food was delicious; the wood fired pizzas were especially popular! Everyone we worked with, particularly our coordinator, was incredibly helpful in the run up and so relaxed on the day. They made sure everything ran really smoothly and we didn’t have to worry about anything except enjoying ourselves. We would definitely recommend Milling Barn as a venue and are so glad we picked it for our own wedding day.
    Jess & Liam, May 2018

  • Our wedding was everything we wanted and more. You have been organised, flexible and most important available to speak to whoever we have needed you. During our meetings you were transparent with all of our choices and the costs that would go with these. You were able to help us adapt the choices available to meet our needs. You and your colleagues organisation and management of the day was spot on and the day flowed seamlessly despite the rain. The food/drink both at the wedding breakfast and the evening were fantastic and a lot of our guests commented on how tasty the burgers were :) Milling barn is truely a beautiful venue which I am so pleased we were able to use for our special day.

  • I just wanted to say thank you to everyone at Milling Barn for putting on such a great day for our wedding. You and Rob were so helpful throughout and all the staff made sure everyone was being looked after from start to finish.
    Kelly and I are so grateful for everything and we wish you all the very best for the future. If anyone asks for a recommendation for a wedding venue I will be sure to put them in touch with you!
    Kelly & Lewis

  • This was the first and ONLY venue that my now husband and I viewed at the beginning of the year, fell in love with it, and decided to go ahead and book. Working with the venue team was extremely easy from the outset, and we got everything we wished for in our wedding day, and more. The venue is incredible and beautiful even without any additional decorations, the chef's at the Chopping Block are great, and very accommodating of special requests, and all other staff were fantastic. The most amazing and memorable day in my life at Milling Barn.. Thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Thank you for hosting our wedding this weekend. The venue is beautiful and the planning team was brilliant. All queries answered quickly and everyone loved the barn! Milling Barn was our first venue we looked at and we didn't even bother to look at any others. Thank you again for being a massive part of making our big day so wonderful.
