"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."
