About Us

Priston Mill was a family run farming business for many years, as well as being a local visitor attraction with tours of the historic Watermill.  The Watermill and Tythe Barn were originally part of an agricultural tenancy from the Duchy of Cornwall, held by the Hopwood family, but it was in 1992 when Peter and Christine Hopwood, alongside Andrew Carveth began the transition from farming business to an events and wedding venues business, which would go on to host many special occasions over the years. 

In 2006 the catering operation was brought in-house when Andrew Carveth formed PM Hospitality Ltd, specifically to manage the catering at Priston Mill.  From the outset the focus was on delivering a high standard of service using quality local ingredients for our clients and since then, the team at Priston Mill have continued to earn an excellent reputation in Bath and surrounding areas.  

From your first contact with the team through to the friendly waiting staff you will find that at Priston Mill we are all focused on running events smoothly and to an exceptionally high standard. With their expertise on planning and organising weddings and functions, the Events Team Chris Keast, Clara Armstrong, Katherine Fallows, Shannon Smith and Chloe Mason make arranging your event straightforward and enjoyable. The tempting dishes and menus are created and prepared by talented chefs Martin Jackson (Head Chef), Rosy Jones and Aimee Applegate. They take great pride in preparing the dishes with the finest of ingredients sourced locally and produced locally wherever possible. 

“Our enthusiastic and professional team are committed to offering you the highest standards of quality and service.”

There are also a number of people working hard behind the scenes keeping the buildings and gardens in good order, including gardener Neil Townsend and housekeeper Teresa Collins.

"There have been weddings, parties and conferences at Priston Mill now for nearly 30 years. Our aim is to work closely with all those that host an event with us, listening to their thoughts and ideas and channelling our experience, expertise and enthusiasm to create and deliver highly memorable occasions".
