We recently had our Wedding reception at the awesome Chilli Barn. Everything about the day was absolutely perfect - in fact perfect was the word of the weekend, it was everything we wanted and more. The team made sure the day was seamless and certainly exceeded our expectations. All of our guests kept saying the venue was amazing and were also blown away by the food.

Amazing venue, food, location!!!

We got married there in May and we had a fabulous experience. We felt very supported from the initial booking meeting with Bex till collecting our stuff the day after the wedding. I can't thank enough all the staff helping us to make this day run so smoothly. Chilli barn offers unbelievable (!!!) tasty food, great service and they are very understanding and accommodating every sort of newlyweds requirements ;) We asked for 100% vegan catering and what we got blown us and our guests away - we have received so many compliments about the food, we wereso pleasantly surprised as we didn't have a chance to taste anything before! We loved the authenticity of the barn, the location (fields and cows), beautiful scenery around and the barn itself. Everything about the barn is top quality: - Food - Furniture - Views - Customer service Thank you so much for helping us making this day so special for us and our guests.

The Chilli Barn really was the perfect venue for us. With us living just down the road and wanting a local wedding we feel very lucky that a venue so close ticked all the boxes. I loved that you could make it look exactly how you wanted it to with lots of options for how we wanted the day to go. The food was fantastic and so nice to not have vegetarian food as an after thought. The hay bales and fire pit in the evening were a lovely touch and all of our guests commented on it being a beautiful place. The staff at the Chilli Barn on the day were incredible, so friendly and efficient. A big thank you to Bex too for all the emails in the lead up to the big day. We had the most incredible day.

By Becky Farmer, on 19 May 2019Date of Wedding - 14 Jul 2018

Chilli Barn was the perfect venue for our summer wedding! We enjoyed Pimms and games, and sat around the fires on hay bales late into the evening. ?? The views and the setting were just dreamy!! And the food was wonderful. All our guests were won over by vegetarian cuisine!! Bex and the whole team were an absolute joy to work with in the run up and the staff were totally amazing on the day. Everything ran so smoothly and our guests mentioned how seamless the day was. Thank you SO MUCH for helping make it the best day ever!

We enjoyed every minute we spent at Chilli Barn
Venue Service

By Laura Roberts, on 19 May 2019Date of Wedding - 07 Jul 2018

We got married at Chilli Barn recently and had a wonderful day. Ever since we discovered the venue last year, we knew it was the perfect spot for our special day and indeed it did not disappoint. Bex was very easy to communicate with and helped us throughout the process of organising the wedding and gave us support on the wedding day. The staff from Chilli Barn were also very friendly and helpful. The food was delicious and even non vegetarian guests said how much they enjoyed it. We were also very lucky with the weather and could take advantage of the outdoor space at side of the barn. We are very sad it's over, but enjoyed every minute we spent at Chilli Barn and would highly recommend it as a venue for anyone who wants a relaxed, slightly alternative wedding. Thank you!

We couldnt recommend them enough.

Venue Service

By Natalie & Tom Suddick, on 20 Dec 2017Date of Wedding - 12 Aug 2017

We'd love to take this opportunity to thank all the barn staff for the most wonderful experience! Bex from Oakleaf weddings was amazing right from the word go! She was on hand to answer our 101 questions with her speedy email correspondence and helped to solve any logistical worries we had. She was the perfect friendly face as I stepped out of the wedding car (not hyperventilating at all). Bex, along with the whole team, were eagle-eyed the whole day! The second I had a gift or card in my hand it was whisked away to the drop box. An empty wine bottle? Immediately replaced! It just couldn't have gone smoother. The food. OH THE FOOD! I'll leave this quote from one of my meat loving guests because it just says it all... "Nat, I'll be honest. I woke up this morning and I wasn't too keen on the whole idea. Vegetarian food? Not for me. But that was amazing! You'd never know it was vege. And I'm stuffed!" Literally amazing food! The flexibility the barn offered us allowed us to have the most chilled out, laid back day with a festival vibe. Imagine guests lounging on hay bales, marshmallows toasting over the fire pit, flip cup cheers bellowing in the background, cows mooing infront of the most beautiful sunset over the hill. Inside the barn, the 3 piece band (drums and all), the guests dancing and singing until their voices are no more. Upstairs, sweet bags being filled, heart felt messages pouring into the guestbook, ping pong balls bouncing into beer cups. The barn literally made our vision of the perfect party come alive. It's not your usual venue, nothing compared to the conveyor belt feel you get at some of the more generic venues.
