The Mill Bar will now be opening for events and we look forward to welcoming you all back! We will be mindful of our volunteers and customers safety, so will have slightly different working practices from when we last opened.
The bar area will be for ordering drinks only – no seating – and we ask customers to place used glasses in a tray. Seating will be inside and outside – so you can choose where you feel comfortable. Come and join us for a relaxed evening.

About The Mill Bar
The Mill Bar is a joint enterprise by The Hempnall Trust and local volunteers to provide a convivial meeting place for local people in the village. The bar provides quality wines, cask and bottled beers, spirits and an incredible selection of gins in a unique setting, the tower of the mill. All the profits from the bar are reverted to the Trust to further enable its function of providing support for local people in need.
The Mill Bar has outdoor seating suitable for families and indoor seating too.
It is possible to hire the main hall when the bar is in session in order to benefit from a fully stocked and staffed bar for your events. Please book here.
The bar itself, was lovingly built and installed by Kevin Rust Kitchens.
The Mill Bar had a very successful and widely attended opening night on 8th June 2018. Some photos of the opening are available below.
We are celebrating our First Birthday with a Mini Beer & Gin Festival on the weekend of 14-16th June (see Events information for details). I hope as many of you will join us as did on our opening night!
