The Best Night of Our Lives!!
Where to even start?!? The Old Mill and Conner Catering are spectacular. From the moment we booked to the day of the wedding, Donald, Taylor and the rest of the team went above and beyond for us. For our wedding, we requested a family style dinner. Working hand in hand with Donald and his team, we created a stellar menu for our 150+ guests. Their execution and thoroughness were second to none. Our guests enjoyed every bite of food, from start to finish. They are still talking about how delicious everything was! The waitstaff were attentive, polite and so friendly! The Old Mill served as the absolute perfect backdrop for our special day with Conner Catering. We simply cannot recommend it enough!Sent on 10/24/2019

Old Mill Conner Catering Recommendation
We cannot say enough about the Conners and this venue. From the very first moment we knew we were in good hands. They were top notch, yet affordable. High standards, but flexible with letting us change things up and bring in our little touches. The wait staff and vendors were cherished by our guests- they were professional, trustworthy and good-hearted people. It was clear how happy they were for us.
Our entire event turn-keyed around what and who Don Conner recommended. We call him the David Foster of the southeastern Pennsylvania catering world. He brought gifted artists together for us and arranged the evening like a piece of music. From the first moment we sat down with him he paved the way for a reassuring and enjoyable process. The venue has two equally beautiful outdoor areas and two indoor areas, so even though it rained for our wedding, it didn't feel like we were cheated.
This magical place proves the expression that 'good begets good'. The Conners have brought together something very sweet and rare here in Rose Valley. They make magic happen in this Robin Hood glen tucked away from the world around it. Wishing we could do it all over again!Sent on 06/10/2019
The Old Mill's reply:Hello Becky!
We have been working with Conner Catering for years and they are simply the best. We have been doing wedding flowers since 1988 and when it was time for me to pick a location for my wedding it was hands down an easy decision. They had the cleanest kitchen, best food and best service I had ever seen. Many occasions I had seen Don Conner making sure every detail of a couples wedding was accomplished. This is a GREAT CATERER and a beautiful venue!
