Amazing Venue and Setting
Venue Service

By Mr and Mrs Ormondroyd, on 13 May 2015

We had what turned out to be the perfect wedding day and evening at Milling Barn in May 2015. The rain held off, the bluebells were out and with the help of a tractor and trailer we had our ceremony in the bluebell woods which was idyllic! The barns and surrounding areas were what we were both looking for - naturally beautiful and spaces you can really make your own. Donna inparticular was brilliant from start to finish with her support, advice, tips and hard work and she really did help to ensure we had the most amazing day! All our guests without fail commented on the venue and the quality of the food and we wouldn't hesitiate to recommend Milling Barn to anyone who wants something special! Thank Milling Barn. Mr and Mrs Ormondroyd

CAN'T WAIT FOR OUR 2015 WEDDING
Venue Service

By XandJ, on 28 Jan 2015

We went to see Milling Barn on a really cold January day during the Christmas holidays. Their wedding planner was the only one out of all the venues we went to see who greeted us with a smile and a hot cup of coffee! We really enjoyed hearing about the venue and what it could do and when we asked if it could do this and that (we have a lot of different ideas for how we want our wedding to be) the wedding planner had so much experience she instantly knew what would work and how little tweaks with our ideas would make them so much better - we went away really excited and booked it the next day. Thank you so much to her for really getting us excited about our special day and making us feel that or plans could be handled with experience. We can't wait!!!!!

Great Wedding
Venue Service

By the new mr and mrs, on 19 Nov 2014

The staff were all so helpful and emails were always answered quickly, efficiently and with all the information we needed (even I have to be honest and say sometimes late into the evening when we assumed we wouldn't get an answer until after the weekend) The food was absolutely gorgeous. We had a three course and a hog roast in the evening and I have to say - absolutely scrummy!!!! Best hog ever. We had access the day before to do our decor which was a massive help and their wedding planner kept us all going with coffee and a happy smile all day even though we stayed a lot later than we had planned due to a mix up our end with the cake she was happy to stay and wait for it to be delivered from S. London (we didn't leave until after 10pm in the end). This is a venue that really puts the personal touch into your wedding whether it be the planning, the catering or the way they look after you on the day making everyone feel welcome and generally being on hand all day. We also had the same point of contact all the way through I have gone into probably a lot more detail than I intended to here but I know this venue was recently taken over (Jan 2013 I believe) and I know some people will wonder if it can handle their day, = trust me - they can and they give you five star treatment all the way, we really felt that we had their full attention for a year not just the day they took our money and the day of the wedding.

milling barn saved our day!
Venue Service

I just want to write a quick note. We had previously booked Hanbury Manor for our wedding in 2015 a year ago thinking we would be organised. When we went back to see it in July 2014 (a year to the date when we would be getting married in 2015) we were horrified at how bad it was. We went to see the wedding planner at Milling Barn nearly in tears but they picked up the pieces for us and we have booked with Milling Barn instead. We are both overjoyed with this venue and all the help they have given us. They didnt mind us coming back more than once with family (and kids in tow) and accommodated a couple of really late night viewings which other venues wouldnt do - strictly 9-6 (booooooo!!!!!) We now can't wait to get married there in 2015 Thank you all at Milling Barn - you literally saved our day

OUR WEDDING DAY
Venue Service

By Mrs H, on 03 Oct 2014

We got married at Milling Barn in September. We didn't book until quite late (6 months before) and were worried we would get everything organised in time. We really need not have worried. They made the whole process SO much fun and enjoyable and we had a great time planning everything with their wedding planner. The caterers (Chopping Block) were superb also and couldn't do enough to accommodate us - even buying more highchairs to accommodate all our children. The venue was highly organised and our emails (which were by the hundreds) were always answered with speed, always answered our questions and were upbeat even when we were worrying about whether we should book this or that in terms of outside suppliers. Their help was invaluable. I wouldnt hesitate to recommend this venue to other couples, although we would like to keep it as our own little memory we hope that we get to go back many times. DEFINITELY book here if you want a barn wedding (PS: there are other barns in the area and to be honest, their staff were too harsh for us) - at Milling Barn they were so wonderful.

DAUGHTERS WEDDING JULY 2014
Venue Service

By Misc, on 27 Aug 2014

We wanted to leave a review for the venue as it was recently taken over in January by the Venue Group. Our daughter got married at Milling Barn in July and it was a wonderful day. We had an outdoor wedding but the staff was very reasuring by setting us up for an indoor wedding as well just in case the weather turned bad on the day. We were able to decorate the day before, drop our stuff off and have a cup of coffee with the wedding planner. Everything was dealt with down to the last detail and we were quite awkward in terms of having to change numbers at the last minute and dietary requirements right up to the night before in one case (sorry again!). On the day everyone was welcoming to our guests, they were well looked after for us, the ceremony was done beautifully outdoors - a real talking point for the guests we felt. In the evening we had a DJ and the party was a great success for young and old. We were also able to bring in bottled beer which had been a real problem with other venues for the couple. We really recommend the venue and hope that someone else we know might use it to get married next year so that we can go back!

wedding at Milling Barn
Venue Service

By Louise and Jo, on 10 Jun 2014

We have booked our wedding at Milling Barn for 2015 recently. They were SO helpful compared to other venues and their wedding planner instantly was able to answer our questions whereas other venues didn't seem to have a clue and had to constantly get back to us. They were really helpful with assisting us in looking at accommodation and their emails were always friendly, helpful and instant with replies even when we kept coming back with questions (purely because we are new to this wedding stuff and kept thinking of new things to ask - it was as if nothing was to much trouble!) we feel that we are in really good hands and are looking forward to working with them. We also had some correspondence with their in-house caterers who were also so friendly, for a new venue they are offering a fabulous service - we are really excited about our wedding now!

Our Wedding in 2014
Venue Service

By unknown, on 27 May 2014

We went to see Milling Barn two weeks ago and booked it instantly. The venue is so beautiful and the help we received when we went was wonderful. All our questions were answered on the spot which gave us a lot of confidence. We went away knowing that was where we wanted to be married and in fact that is where we will be married in September! Can't wait

What a wonderful venue highly recommend
Venue Service

By Lilly, on 14 May 2014

We recently viewed the venue as we had already booked another venue and had been for a food tasting which was awful there. The staff and wedding planner at Milling Barn were SO helpful! They even managed to help us get out deposit back from the awful venue which was a huge relief for us financially! The food tasting they offered was absolutely divine - could have eaten there all day! Their wedding planner has answered emails we have sent swiftly and with the most detail to help us (and we have sent her ALOT of emails over the last few weeks) but nothing is too much trouble. We can't wait to have our wedding here later this year - the venue is just absolutely beautiful!

Great Service, beautiful venue and location
Venue Service

By Sally and Steve, on 14 May 2014

We recently attended a wedding at Milling Barn and the service was absolutely beautiful! Both rooms were decorated perfectly to suit the bride and groom, the staff were attentive and looked after us so well helping us all day even with little queries and had a box of little bits to help us when a skirt was accidentally torn in the car before getting there! The food was absolutely gorgeous and came out piping hot. The waitress service was quick and efficient and all done with a smile. Their bar prices were great and the party atmosphere was wonderful. I hope we get more opportunities to go back!

Perfect Day!
Venue Service

By M Gabriel, on 06 May 2014

We had our ceremony and reception at Millingbarn in March this year; what a fantastic venue and staff! The place has a lovely, relaxed, intimate vibe, one we hadn't felt at other venues, which really drew us to spending our special day there. Donna really looked after us, to make sure we had exactly what we wanted on the day. Given her experience, she also gave us ideas and guidance which was really helpful, as there are a few things to think about and consider! We really felt like we were in good hands with Donna, which helped us relax in the knowledge that she was making sure everything ran to the plan, without even breaking a sweat! We did have specific requirements we wanted for our wedding breakfast, which were worked up by the Chopping Block team efficiently and with great flexibility. We can't begin to thank you enough for creating the perfect setting for our day. Our heartfelt thanks and a special thank you to Donna, you were fantastic! Mr and Mrs Gabriel)
