Private Events

If you’re looking for a place to celebrate an event whether it’s a milestone birthday party, a peaceful Christening or an intimate wedding reception, the Mill is the perfect venue for private events in Ulverston.

We can host your special event in one of our two fantastic rooms. The Loft Bar, The Mill’s intimate cocktail venue, is housed in the Mill’s old corn store, or our Terrace restaurant, which spills out on to our fantastic open air roof terrace for balmy summer parties and alfresco dining. Each area has exclusive use of its own private bar and bathroom for your guests.

Our restaurant is available for daytime or evening events and can cater for up to 40 people seated. Alternatively, it can be hired in conjunction with the adjoining Terrace Bar and cater for up to 150 people on a buffet basis.


Hiring the Loft. 

Our Loft Bar, located at the top of the building, can be hired for private functions for small parties or as part of a large event (using different parts of the Mill), holding over 200 people. This venue is available seven days a week on a shared or exclusive basis. This is a very popular option, so booking well in advance is highly recommended.


Loft Rules/Room Hire & Deposits.

The cost of room hire is £50. This will always be taken at the booking and a reservation is never confirmed until this money has been paid. This deposit is non-refundable if you cancel your event.

We are always delighted to accept Hen Party nights, anniversary parties and 21st, 30th, 40th etc birthday parties. Sadly we are are not a suitable venue for an 18th birthday event.

This £50 deposit is waived (and returned) if 30+ guests are dining (either in the restaurant or from one of our buffet options).  This option is available seven days a week apart from when exclusive use is required after 9pm on a Friday & Saturday. Rules are different on Bank Holiday and Christmas weekends.

Exclusive use Friday and Saturday – all night. This requires 60+ guests (over 18s only) and a minimum of 30 dining or taking a buffet option.

Buffet options can be found here.
