Our latest testimonials

Many couples who get married or have hosted celebratory events at Mill Hall write to tell us how much they have enjoyed their day.  You can read some of them below... 


"We got married in August 2016 at Mill Hall and we could not imagine a better wedding day. The venue itself is absolutely stunning, inside and out. The Great Hall, where we had the ceremony and wedding breakfast, was absolutely beautiful with its grand features and wood panelled walls. We were lucky enough to have lovely weather so we went outside for the drinks reception and our guests loved the grounds - there was so much space for people to mingle and for the children to play. Throughout our wedding planning, and on the day, the service provided by the staff was absolutely excellent. They really went above and beyond to make our day special. The food was delicious and many of our guests commented on this. Having exclusive use of the venue really made it special, and we were able to set some things up the day before which was really useful. The icing on the cake is that the profits go to the Mary Hare Charity. Would highly recommend!"

"Mill Hill was the first and only venue we viewed as we did not need to see any others! Faye was wonderful all the way through and we had a fantastic day and would not have changed a thing. The food was exceptional; canapés, 2 course wedding breakfast and evening buffet were our choices. All our guests commented on the how grand the venue was and the food was extremely good and plenty of it. The setting was idyllic and excellent for photographs. Thank you Mill Hall."

"After being let down by another venue we were back to the search of finding a new venue for our wedding day. We then came across Mill Hall and were instantly pleased and relieved we had lost our previous venue. Mill Hall suited us and our interests down to the ground. For a couple who love visiting National Trust Properties Mill Hall then made the obvious choice for our wedding day, with its character and charm and uniqueness. We had already decided on a church wedding so we only needed Mill Hall for our reception, which was no problem. From our first meeting with Faye the wedding co-ordinator to the day itself her support , guidance and help couldn’t have been more appreciated. We don’t live in Newbury itself anymore so planning a wedding an hour away from where we live was already a tricky task. Faye made this no issue and was always happy to email and answer the many questions we had along the way, nothing was too much trouble for her. When it came to the catering of the wedding Paul and his team were amazing. The food tasting is a must and reviews and Faye recommended not to eat before, don’t! Paul makes so many options and food for the tasting, lunch was even sorted for the next day. I myself have a food intolerance and we had many guests with food allergies and intolerances. This too was no problem or issue for Paul and he made me feel very special and not a nuisance. My auntie who has not eaten certain foods for well over a year has now widened her food choices as a result of the wedding breakfast meal. Everyone on the day was very complimentary of the food as well as very full! Faye and the team were happy for us to come into the venue the day before and help to decorate as we wanted. I can’t recommend Mill Hall and their team enough to anyone, our wedding day was truly the best day it could have been and a very special and memorable day one we won’t be forgetting in a long time. If I could put my dress on and do it all again tomorrow I would. There is also the added bonus that all the proceeds go back to the charity and the children, something which working with children myself means a great deal to me."

"We held our wedding at this beautiful venue on the 30th of April and had the most awesome day. Our wedding duty manager Ellie was amazing and managed the day to perfection. The food was quote "the best wedding food they had ever had" as stated by many of our guests and I couldn't agree more. All in all the best value for money we could have got and would recommend to anybody"

(Clare and Gary Black, wedding April 2016.)

"We are finally getting back to some form of normality after a wonderful day.  Everything went very smoothly and our guests have all said how wonderfully relaxed it was. Thank you so much for all your help and advice and we cannot thank enough all those who were involved in making our day so special. Our guests made particular comment on how excellent the food was - the whole wedding breakfast was superb. You have a great team!"

(Debs and Pete, wedding March 2016.)

"We knew from the first time we visited Mill Hall that it ticked all of our boxes, and Faye and the team were absolutely fabulous. Whether we were dealing with Paul about the food, Fran who was our duty manager on the day, or the staff we met, we always felt as though our wedding was as important to Mill Hall as it was to us. If you are considering Mill Hall as an option, then I would wholeheartedly recommend them to you."

(Jennifer and James, wedding 5th December 2015.)

"I just wanted to let you know how thankful we are to you and the rest of the team at Mill Hall for helping to make our wedding the wonderful occasion that it was.  The day really was everything we had hoped it would be. All the guests thought it was a beautiful occasion and thoroughly enjoyed themselves. From our very first meeting, you made planning our wedding as easy as it could possibly be. Your understanding and patience as we made decisions and then changed them was very much appreciated. The flexibility of the team to cater to our requirements, especially tailoring our menu so specifically, ensured the day ran smoothly and was exactly how we imagined it. The team was so friendly and polite and couldn’t have been more professional. To say we won’t forget the day is an understatement and we certainly won’t forget the role that you and all the staff played in making it so amazing."

(Paul and Stefan, wedding October 2015.)

"On behalf of Alison and I, we would like to say thank you and your team for making our day so special. Everything went perfectly and everyone said that the venue was beautiful."

(Alison and Rob, wedding September 2015.)

“We had our wedding reception at Mill Hall on the 29th August this year. We both loved the building and with the vast space and amazing grounds knew we could really make it into something special for our big day. All the staff were extremely helpful and accommodating to all our requests and provided a fab service from the initial booking through to after the wedding. We have had various compliments from friends and family members on how lovely the food was, it was truly scrumptious. We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone at Mill Hall who made our amazing day possible and would recommend to anyone interested in booking a wedding at Mill Hall.”

(Laura and Luke, August 2015.)
