Brilliant Wedding Venue
We had our day here in August after we originally booked back in 2018 but had to postpone by 2.5 years after being one of the early couples effected by the pandemic. We had a new coordinator, Martina, by the time our date approached as our previous one had moved on, and she was absolutely brilliant! She was so organised and accomodating, we had some ideas that we had been told previously in 2020 might be difficult but she couldn't have been more accomodating and helpful! She made everything really clear and concise which made it so easy knowing what was happening and when, which was invaluable for the other suppliers too. The day itself went really smoothly, we had to make.some last minute adjustments and although I'm sure it was a real pain for her as it was more work she was so helpful, made sure it was all sorted and was really kind about it all. The food was absolutely gorgeous, the timings went well and it was the meal of dreams so HUGE thank you to the incredible catering team, we had so many compliments on the food in the day and the evening! The rooms were also really beautiful and comfortable, with a lovely breakfast for everyone too. The staff on the day/night were just so lovely, everyone was so helpful, they made sure even when we had photos we had some of our canapes and drink too, we felt so looked after. They were an amazing help with setting up and packing things away too, we were a little worried it would be stressful but they really took all the anxiety out of it all, nothing was any trouble at all. Even down to the maintenance and housekeeping staff, everyone was chatty and so lovely and kind. The venue and grounds are absolutely stunning, the Oak Barn is absolutely breath taking for a ceremony and the space in the Dairy and Milling barns give so much choice for entertainment and what you can do for the day, I would highly recommend Milling Barn as a venue. A huge thank you to everyone involved in our special day, you truly made it a day to remember and were do grateful for all the help to ensure it ran smoothly.

A great day but poor pre-event communication
The most important thing to note here is that on the day, Milling Barn were fantastic. Everything went really smoothly and the service staff were excellent. The food was exceptional and the overall management was good. What I will say is that before the day, the communication from MB was quite frustrating. We spoke to a lot of different people and had to chase on responses to our queries. Invoices were sent on their due date even though queries were outstanding, and some of the staff didn't seem to know the answers to some basic questions. I understand they're a relatively new venue so can forgive some of the hiccups. Hidden costs to be wary of: tree lighting (£75 to light up the oak at the front), patio heating (£125). Be warned: no where to take pictures if it's raining outside! They wouldn't let us use any of the surrounding barns, which was disappointing and we have very few pics of us as a couple because we just couldn't use the grounds due to rain. All in all, we had a great experience with MB. I can't express enough how amazing the catering was - the best wedding food we've ever had!
