Customer Reviews

Amazing venue!!

Idillic location a stoned throw from a picturesque village church. Or marry within the grounds. Great food, & staff. You can even have a pamper the day before or on the day at Esse. You will want to go back for every anniversary too.

The best wedding venue possible for us and our small wedding party. Nothing was too much trouble and Emma took care of everything. Emma and her team at the Sheene Mill made our day very very special. The ceremony,food and service were second to none. We would actually love to do it again, every year!

We had a small wedding at Sheene Mill with only 14 guests. From start to finish everything was perfect. Emma and staff made it so special I want to do it all over again. My best friend was so impressed she and her fiancé are getting married there next April.

Perfect Venue for a wedding we got married 13/08/2011 everything went well and everyone enjoyed the whole experience of Sheene Mill !!

Beautiful place, amazing staff. Everything is perfect there

Beautiful place, amazing staff. Everything is perfect a little secret garden

I had my wedding at the Sheene Mill in July 2015 after falling in love with the place on my first visit. It was the most fabulous day and everyone treated me as if i was the first and only bride to ever be married there. It still feels like 'our' wedding venue. Have returned for drinks and meals and will continue to visit whenever possible. I just love the place and the people.

We had a fantastic wedding in 2014 at The Sheene Mill. The team were flexible, accommodating and we couldn't have asked for anything more. Thank you!

Fabulous. Amazing venue wonderful staff truly gave us a day to remember. Can't recommend Sheene Mill highly enough.

We got married at The Sheene Mill in September and had the most incredible day - the team there are wonderful, everyone was so friendly and helpful and they really made us feel at home and that nothing was too much trouble. The venue is just stunning, it's the perfect place for a relaxed and intimate wedding, and we feel so lucky to have found it!

Beautiful venue, excellent service, amazing food - a lovely day with wonderful memories.

We had our wedding at The Sheene Mill on August 22nd 2015, ourselves and our guests had a fantastic day and can only thank the staff for making it as good as it was! The Sheene Mill is located on the river and the wedding pavilion is set over the river which created the most spectacular back drop for guest to admire during the ceremony. Every guest commented on the location and the friendliness of the staff. The food was amazing, far from typical wedding food and more like fine dining. The size of the venue made for an intimate wedding feel despite the fact we had over 80 guests. From the night before to breakfast the morning after the dedicated staff made sure the venue was clean, tidy, beautifully decorated and were on hand for anything we needed. Emma, the events and wedding co ordinator listened to all our ideas and wishes and attention to detail was her main priority! We can't thank her enough for making our day easy to plan and a very special day to remember! I would highly recommend The Sheene Mill to anyone planning their special day.

Emma and all the team at the Sheene Mill helped to make our wedding amazing. The venue was stunning inside and out, food was fantastic and nothing was too much trouble. We Would recommend as a venue for anyone planning their big day.

My Husband and I got married at the Sheene Mill in August. From start to finish Emma and the team were amazing. The venue itself is beautiful, we picked the most dreadful day weather wise but that didn't ruin a thing. We still managed to get amazing photos because there are so many beautiful locations and the white umbrellas provided added a lovely touch. We really couldn't have asked for a better day. We have had so many comments from our guests about how beautiful the venue is and how wonderful the staff were. I would definitely recommend this venue.

Me and husband got married at the sheene mill in September this year. Emma and her staff were very helpful threw out the day and made all are guest feel welcome . There grounds are beautiful and I couldn't of ask for a better day. Thanks again sheene mill

Everyone always says planning a wedding is hard work, I honestly don't agree. We had our wedding at The Sheene Mill and Emma and her staff took care of everything! The place was amazingly decorated and the food was incredible! We had 3 choices of venues and we are so glad we chose here! Our wedding day would not have been the same if it was for all the friendly staff who made everyone feel so welcome through the day! We honestly can't recommend this place enough!! Brilliant and thank you again for everything! Mr and Mrs Ralph!x

Emma made planning our special day a real pleasure. Nothing was too much trouble and the day itself was amazing. All of our guests, 20 in total to,d us that it was all perfect, we thought so too. Good service, good prices and excellent food and location

Sheene Mill was perfect for the informal & intimate outdoor wedding that we wanted. Nothing was too much trouble both during the planning of our wedding and during our day thanks to Emma and her team who were friendly & welcoming to all. Emma took full responsibility for the decorations and set-up on the day so that we could just relax and enjoy every minute of our special day. Good food & great atmosphere, well worth the money!

What a wonderful venue! We couldn't have made our day any more perfect. We wanted an outdoor and relaxed day and that's exactly what we got. Everything we asked Emma for she sorted out. I would definitely recommend Sheene Mill as your wedding venue.

Thank you to Emma, John, Jose and all the team who worked tirelessly and cheerfully to give us a magical wedding day. Our requirements were unusual - 17 guests for the ceremony and wedding breakfast and around 90 in the evening for the party. Many venues wouldn't consider our request; the Sheene Mill accommodated perfectly and gave the best food! Thanks also for setting up the ceremony both inside and out due to showery weather. Luckily we were able to marry in the pavilion and retire to the conservatory for a flawless wedding breakfast. We booked the date 18 months ago and were superbly supported by Emma throughout. During this period the Sheene Mill has gone from strength to strength. Our guests loved the venue and the evening buffet went down a storm. All the day guests stayed at the hotel and enjoyed a fantastic breakfast the following morning. So glad we chose the Sheene Mill and wishing you continued success.

I cannot recommend the Sheene Mill enough! Emma and her team made the day run amazingly seamless - everything flowed as it should and as a bride I felt completely confident that nothing would be missed which was amazing! The venue looked beautiful and just as I had pictured. All the staff were delightful and the food was amazing! We had comments from our guests that it was the best food they had ever had at a wedding! Little details were taken into consideration and I really felt that the day could not have gone any better!!
