The Ancaster Mill has been amazing. They are so knowledgeable that it is one less thing to worry about. We have 5 guests that have Celiac disease and Kathy (our coordinator) knew all about it and assured us that our guests would have nothing to worry about. As many wedding as Kathy has helped organize and she still made me feel like my ideas were special and amazing.

Beautiful venue, amazing food and staff! We were in great hands on the day of our wedding. The staff at the Ancaster Mill worked hard to make sure everything ran smoothly. They were amazing and I cannot thank them enough. Furthermore, the FOOD was AMAZING!!! I had a group of vegetarian and vegan guests who all approached me individually throughout the evening to thank me for the most delicious vegetarian and vegan food they have had. We had such a great time! Our families were raving about the Mill days after.

We booked the Ancaster Mill for our Spring wedding on a recommendation and without having seen it and were just blown away (along with all our guests) by it's beauty, excellent staff, turn-key service and delicious/quality food and drink. Couldn't speak more highly of this place and can't wait to go back for our anniversary!

To the Mill staff: Thank you for making our wedding day the most stress-free and amazing day of our lives!

I planned our wedding from the UK and Vicki was a delight to deal with from day one. Always picking up emails quickly and being very helpful throughout the whole process. We had an amazing wedding day!! The food was to die for (prime rib is amazing!) and they are incredibly professional. We also used their officiant who was absolutely brilliant! We had lots of people ask us afterwards where we found him as they liked the ceremony that much (we had a non religius ceremony for reference).

If you have your wedding here you will not regret it, trust me.

I had a wedding at Ancaster Mill in June 2013. Kathy the event coordinator was really great in answering all my questions. The food was great and everything went very smoothly during the dinner. The venue was beautiful with the waterfall and the trees surrounding the grounds. We even got to have schnitzel and vegan meals to accomodate our guests. Now the bad part: Unfortunately, I had the late wedding at 6pm - 1am, if you pick the Millview Room. So that means I wasn't allowed to take pictures before my wedding on the grounds. Everything was super rushed and my ceremony ran late because they had just finished another ceremony so they had to rush to decorate my ceremony. During the reception, you aren't given champagne to do toasts during speeches. Overall, I do love the venue and the food was delicious!

My husband and I recently had our wedding at the Mill and are so happy with the way it turned out. The venue is absolutely beautiful, but what stood out for us is the exceptional service we received from our wedding co-ordinator, Kathy. She is professional, caring and went above and beyond in helping us achieve the vision for our wedding. The food is outstanding; we asked if we could have a specific ethnic meal prepared for our menu and the chef impressed all the guests who chose that dish! We are very thankful to the Mill for making our wedding day the best it could possibly be!

Ancaster Mill is an exceptional venue for a cocktail wedding reception. The atmosphere is relaxed yet elegant and the staff went above and beyond to make sure our wedding day was exactly what we had wanted. The food was unbelieveable. Many guest`s commented it was the best wedding they had ever been too and they had never seen a selectionn of food anywhere like this before. The amount of food and the variety and quality was enjoyed by a wide age range of guests. We took advantage of the Ancaster Mill experience and used their recommended Photographer and D.J services which were both excellent. If you are looking for an elegant local venue that will exceed your expectations the Ancaster Mill will not disappoint you!

We wanted a more unique setting for our wedding and since the Ancaster Mill is our favorite restaurant, it was an easy choice. What made it even more wonderful was the staff - our wedding coordinator Vicky took care of all the details leading up to the day. She asked questions about things I hadn't even thought about, so t was like having a wedding planner (you really don't need one if you use the Mill), and then on our wedding day Darlene was our Maitre D' and she really took care of us. The Ancaster Mill is a stunning location inside and out, and the food was also amazing, so we were thrilled with everything.

We got married at the Cambridge mill which is the sister of an caster. The food was to die for, it is stunningly gorgeous and they fulfilled all of our wishes! It was the best wedding and they really helped our day be perfect.
It rained, when we were to have an outdoor wedding, and they had the indoor terrace decorated and ready after a sudden rain shower within 20 minutes!

I cannot recommend the Ancaster Mill any more. Throughout our planning, Kathy always responded to my many emails and phone calls. Everything was "no problem! we can do that!" - it was amazing. On the actual day, I could not believe how organized they were. We did not have to do anything except show up! They made our day run so smoothly and so seamlessly, it was unreal.
The location is beyond beautiful. The waterfall, the covered bridge, the incredible outdoor ceremony site. You don't have to leave to take beautiful photographs!
Finally, the food: amazing. Our guests ranted and raved about the meals afterwards. All the food was fresh, hot, and cooked perfectly.
I am so happy we went with the Ancaster Mill, not only for their incredible location and food, but most of all for their amazing service. It made for a stress-free day -- what else could any bride want?

The Ancaster Mill is a beautiful venue to have a wedding at, and we couldn't imagine being anywhere else. The food at our wedding was amazing, the room was romantic (the 1812 room), and the garden for the ceremony was perfect! The staff was great overall, just a few hiccups the day of the wedding, but other than a lack of organization for a few moments that night, everything was great.

This Venue is Stunning! We used the Millview Room- which has floor-to-ceiling windows on all 4 walls, and it looks out into the forest- beautiful. The photos that you can get a a venue like this are incredible! (tip; go alll the way up the stairs towards the back of the property, and there is a very nature-y area... which will mean no metal bars, etc to impede your photos)

The food was so delicious, and it is chosen seasonally based on what is fresh, organic and local- what could be better? They made these Sweet Potato Chips that Rocked my World!
