"Our wedding reception was fantastic, with the quirky features of the Mill playing a huge part in ensuring that our function was not only unique, but also tailored to our taste. The YCB team were on hand to help with any request and even facilitated the use of the Mill the evening before so we could decorate it as we so wished. We couldn't recommend working with the YCB team enough and hope that many more couples can share in the same experience we did for years to come."

"Thank you so much for a brilliant experience. We loved having our engagement party at the Queens Mill. We will certainly be back and recommending you to our family and friends."

"James and Yorkshire Craft Beers provided the evening bar for our Wedding in December 2021. James was great and really helpful from the start, discussing our requirements and logistics for the day. They were able to provide a great range of beers as well as spirits to keep our guests very happy! On the day he was quick and efficient setting up and kept the bar running really smoothly in the evening. Would highly recommend, thank you so much to you and your team for all your help!"

"Had my husbands 50th birthday party at the Mill, great night was had by all, highly recommended. Thanks to the YCB team for all their help!"

"We recently held our wedding reception at the Queen's Mill, and the team from Yorkshire Craft Beers ran the day for us. We couldn't be happier that we made the decision to have our wedding at The Mill. The whole YCB team were excellent, serving up our favourite drinks, helping clear and move tables...we even had a member of staff essentially catering to mine and my wife's every need! James made the whole booking and organising process so easy. We are pretty laid back and he made it so simple from booking up to the big day. Not only did we get to choose some incredible beer but there was a great selection of spirits and wine for our guests too. We would highly recommend the Mill space for any event, wedding or otherwise, and if you want excellent drinks served by excellent staff then look no further than the Yorkshire Craft Beer guys."
