Bartons Mill is a unique late 17th century mill formerly known as Old Basing Mill set in the beautiful surroundings of the Hampshire countryside. Just a short distance from Basingstoke town center, Old Basing is a charming village steeped in history. Situated on the River Loddon, Bartons Mill is home to unique wildlife and with a tranquil riverside setting.
Our historic building was last working in 1965 and remained a private residence until 1979 when it opened its doors as a restaurant. Renovated to seamlessly merge The Barton’s Mill restaurant and The Millstone Pub to create Barton’s Mill, this site lovingly retains the characterful features of its historical past.
Your wedding will take place in our timber-framed venue of our historic building with exposed wood beans and beautifully lit areas that bring a rustic touch to your day.
Your guests will enter through your own private entrance, passing by the weir into the Stone Mill, with its own bar, patio, and large garden surrounded by water and nature full of various backdrops for magical memories.
With a memorable location, we are a versatile venue that can offer a range of rooms that accommodate between 8 to 160 guests for the ceremony and/or wedding reception exclusively yours for the day.
Barton’s Mill is licensed to host civil ceremonies from very Intimate occasions to large celebrations.
