Good venue but I had lost my cloakroom ticket so was asked to get it another day. I have called each day for 2 weeks and there has been no response at all and I don’t want to go all the way there when it’s potentially closed...customer service needs to be updated as it’s not just required when an event is going on, it should be constant.

Went here on Halloween just gone. Lost my ID, someone on Facebook posted, with photo evidence, that they handed the ID to the downstairs bar. I called up the mill the next day, for a man to say that I could come around to have a look for my ID, as he could not find it in lost property. When I called on the day I was to collect the ID, a woman who claimed to be the manager said that I could not look around as the man before had previously suggested, and implied that I was making this up as a way to get into the venue. She suggested that I message their FaceBook, which I did, and got a swift response, and told that I would be notified when the ID was found. After no reply I messaged on the 5th November, 3 days after the initial conversation, for them to reply saying that they’ll have another look as the bars were getting ‘completely cleared’. I messaged them a week later asking if it was found, only to be ignored, and ignored again after another message. Whilst it’s my fault that I lost my ID at the venue which I’m annoyed at myself about, I’m also annoyed that The Mill somehow managed to lose an ID that was handed to them behind the bar, with evidence provided, and that the management messed me around regarding picking up of the ID, and also being ignored after nicely asking them if anything had been found. Overall, nice venue, had a great night. But try not to lose anything there, because if you do and it’s found, The Mill will make sure that they lose it too. Management are initially friendly but have a very half-job attitude.

The venues ok but I had two major issues whilst there over the weekend: 1. It was rammed, there was no doubt to anyone attending the event had been oversold, it was dangerously overcrowded for most of the evening. 2. For some reason lids on bottles of water were removed, as someone with a medical condition, which I shouldn't have to disclose at the bar, this (along with the crowd being so rammed holding a drink was impossible) meant I was dangerously dehydrated by the time I left. This is totally unacceptable and all bar staff were very unhelpful and dismissive of my requests. Once the event finished I was allowed a cup of water from the bar (no bottles because the bar was closed) but when I asked for a second cup I was refused and asked to leave by security. Unfortunately this tainted what could have been a very entertaining evening.

It was just a good venue, didn’t have to wait for drinks, the stage was intimate, the performers were quality. Couldn’t fault
