Dressing up just a little we headed out to this gem, just 20 minutes from our house. From the minute you park,... More

The grounds were well kept and very scenic with the water fall and the bridge and the old mill building. At night everything was nicely lit up including the outdoor bridge and the waterfall, and the reception venue... More

We took some friends to dinner at the Mill and it was a great experience. Perfectly prepared food, excellent presentation and service in a really warm well decorated environment. Expensive but well worth it!

My hubby and I chose the Ancaster Mill for our wedding location and were nothing short of thrilled. Every single detail was perfect and just as we wanted. The service we received was nothing short of fantastic. The grounds are incredibly beautiful. The staff are so warm and professional. The food was incredible too!

Four of us went for a leisurely evening at the Ancaster Mill. There is nothing that could have been improved upon. The service was professional, the food perfect and the setting was so pretty. We has a table looking out onto the waterfall. I would highly recommend the Ancaster Mill for a special occasion dinner.
