The Mill at Elstead is a one-of-a-kind pub wedding venue located in the picturesque Surrey countryside in Godalming, England. This converted mill is nestled along the River Wey and provides an idyllic and serene setting for your special occasion. With beautiful grounds ripe for photographs and several event spaces, the landmark location can be customised to suit your unique wedding needs.

Facilities and Capacity

The ground floor of The Mill at Elstead is a licensed ceremony site that offers a cosy and rustic ambiance. The room features an inglenook fire, wooden beams, exposed brick walls, and mismatched wood furniture. It can accommodate up to 26 people for intimate ceremonies with your closest friends and family. On the first floor you will find the dual aspect Cygnet Room. Here, you can host larger ceremonies of 72, wedding breakfasts with 90 guests, and evening celebrations with up to 120 people. The Cygnet Room, with its dark hardwood floors and brick details, has a similar style and atmosphere as the ceremony space. Out in the gardens, you can take breathtaking photographs in the orchard by the Mill pond, at the entrance bridge, and under the lit archway. The venue's resident ducks, swans, herons, and pheasants may even pop by for a picture.

Services Offered

Fuller's Kitchen at The Mill at Elstead will supply the catering for your wedding breakfast. The talented in-house chefs use locally-sourced, seasonal ingredients to create signature dishes in the English pub tradition. You can then pair your delicious cuisine with a diverse selection of drinks. The bar is known for its classic cask-condition ales, but has also partnered with Sipsmith of London to provide a sophisticated cocktail menu. The team invites you to get in touch to book your viewing of this quaint yet elegant countryside pub.

Our special day 7th May 16

We wanted to let you know that we had a fabulous day on Saturday and Adelaide and the team were terrific. The feedback from our guests about the venue was amazing. The food was great, nothing was too much trouble and the atmosphere all day was wonderful. It was great to see the agreed plan perfectly delivered. Obviously the sunshine was a real asset. Thank you all again for such an amazing day.

Thank you!

I just wanted to drop you a line to say a massive THANK YOU for hosting our wedding. We had an absolutely wonderful day, only made possible by your wonderful team at the Mill.

We were so impressed with all of the staff - everyone was attentive, polite and professional, and the day ran smoothly and without stress. I
wanted to make particular mention of the gentleman who seemed to be the floor manager on the day - I did not get his name, nor had met him before, but he was amazing, and really helped us keep things to time and ensure everything went smoothly.

We will certainly recommend the venue to all our friends..

Thank you for helping to coordinate such an amazing day!
