Function Room Hire

We welcome everyone to The Mill House Venue and want all to enjoy themselves, however there are strict terms and conditions which must be adhered to and this will ensure that everyone has a great time, keeps within our licencing laws and hopefully will result in you wanting to come back and book us again for your future celebrations.

The function room and bar can hold up to 80 people seated with a further capacity of 130. Smoking is not permitted anywhere inside the building but there are designated smoking areas outside with facilities provided – anyone caught smoking within the building will be asked to leave. We reserve the right to ask guests to leave due to inappropriate behaviour and a charge will be made for any damages caused.

We cater for any function and there is a room hire charge of £100 to cover tablecloths, utilities and cleaning. The room hire charge will be required as a deposit to secure the date for your event. We also have a minimum spend of £450 either on catering or spent on the bar. If your total spend does not reach the minimum, you will be asked to make up the difference at the end of your function.

We are a licenced venue and operate in conjunction with strict licencing laws. Last orders will be taken at 12.30am with everyone expected to vacate the premises by 1pm. We would ask that noise outside the venue be kept to a minimum during late nights and the early hours to ensure that our close neighbours aren’t adversely affected.

Although our car park is private and secure, we do not accept responsibility for any damage caused to vehicles parked on the premises.

Wifi is free for any of our guests – please ask members of staff for the password.

Once you have decided on a date for your event, a provisional booking will be held for up to 14 days, after which time the date should be confirmed by payment of the room hire as a deposit or released. If we do not hear from you in the 14 days, the date will be released.

If your function cannot go ahead because of new COVID restrictions, then a full refund will be given. Any other cancellations within 2 weeks of your event will forfeit any deposit paid – please see our separate payment schedule for weddings.

No food/drink/drugs can be brought onto the premises unless by prior arrangement. You are fully entitled to arrange your own catering but please let your caterer know that this does not include any drinks. Management reserve the right to confiscate any items outside of this arrangement and in extreme circumstances guests will be escorted off the premises. Charges may apply if personal alcoholic drinks are found on the premises. Please communicate this to your guests to avoid any embarrassment. In the worst instance, we reserve the right to close the venue.

All suppliers and entertainers booked by you must have Public Liability Insurance for at least 2 million pounds and produce proof of this at least one month before the function date. All goods brought onto the premises are left at the supplier’s own risk. Any items left overnight by your suppliers must be removed by 11am the following day.

It is your responsibility to book the registrars for your wedding ceremony. We recommend a wedding ceremony no later than 2pm but please speak to your wedding coordinator before booking your registrar.

After having chosen one of our wedding packages, there will be an initial deposit of £500. After the initial deposit has been paid, we ask for 50% of the estimated balance three months prior, the total invoice is to be cleared no later than one month prior. We do understand however that you may need to add additional items onto the invoice after the one month point but we ask for this to be settled as soon as possible and no later than one week prior. You are more than welcome to pay off a larger proportion at any time if you prefer.

Payment can be made by cash, card, cheque or via online banking.

We recommend that wedding insurance be taken out in all circumstances. Cancellations received within 6 months of the wedding date will forfeit the minimum deposit paid. Cancellations within 3 months will be subject to a 30% forfeit of the wedding total, 50% within 1 month and any cancellations made after that will be subject to 75% payment of the total wedding cost including any extra items booked. Initial deposits and further monies paid are transferable to an alternative date, subject to venue availability.

Estimated guest numbers need to be submitted within 3 months of the wedding date and final numbers within 2 weeks. If wedding guest numbers decrease after that, no refund will be given. If numbers increase, please let your wedding coordinator know within 72 hours of your wedding.

Menus should be chosen on the basis of all guests selecting the same dish, although we are happy to cater for any special dietary requirements or vegetarians. Any guest allergens must be made aware to your wedding coordinator prior to the wedding. Please be aware that as our kitchen cannot guarantee the absence of various allergens including, and not restricted to, wheat and peanuts.

Children’s meals (from age 12 and under) are available at half the adult price. All day and evening guests must be catered for to ensure that we have the correct amount of food and staff.

Mill House Events Limited will not be liable for any failure to provide our facilities in the event of fire/flood/hurricane and storm/industrial action/ terrorism or any other circumstances beyond our control.

Sweetness and Lights Events are our preferred venue dressers but if you have your own supplier, please speak to our wedding coordinators. A list of any other suppliers must be provided at least 6 weeks prior to your wedding and every supplier needs to submit their Public Liability insurance documents at least 1 month before your wedding date.

Terms and conditions are subject to change at any time.
