Reception Food & Drinks

Your Reception is the start of your celebrations and should set your day off with a bang. You can provide a selection of Canapés along with glasses of sparkling for all your guests, or why not try something a little different and have a mixture of drinks. Some of these ideas can always be continued throughout your day if you’d prefer. We are here to build the Wedding Reception you’ve always imagined!


Our Canapés are a general showstopper and are a fantastic accompaniment to your Reception Drinks. You can select from both the House Canapés and À La Carte Canapés, but a minimum of 3 different choices is required. We are always here to help with any tailored choices you would prefer to make.

  • Thank you for your email - we had a wonderful day and really appreciated all the support all staff at Milling Barn but from Aimee specifically! She was amazing at ensuring the day ran smoothly whilst helping us to both stay calm which led to a relaxing and amazing day spent with all our nearest and dearest.
    I also wanted to ensure feedback gets back to the Kitchen staff as we have had endless compliments on how delicious all the food was. Most notably from Adam’s dad, who is vegan and coeliac and often struggles to eat out where he is catered for and the food is good. He could not stop complimenting the food, saying it was the best food he’d had in nearly 20 years since he was diagnosed! So thank you. I will get round to writing up a formal review soon too.

  • 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!

  • 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.
