    Our wedding day was just amazing, intimate, full of love and joy, the Chilli Barn suited us perfectly

    Our wedding day was just amazing, intimate, full of love and joy, the Chilli Barn suited us perfectly and felt so personal to us. The venue setting is beautiful with wonderful views from the inside and out, whatever the weather!
    We married when we were restricted to 15 guests and the Chilli Barn perfectly suited a smaller, more intimate wedding, we filled the space nicely and were able to move from the ground to mezzanine levels for different parts of the day.
    We got married in October 2020, after originally planning July 2020. The Chilli Barn and the co-ordinator there were fantastic throughout all the changes made to weddings from quickly answering our questions and helping us to make decisions to being wonderfully flexible by allowing us to save a future date while hanging onto an original date, we even chose to bring our wedding date forward to avoid further restrictions and we were fully supported with this, the Chilli Barn were fantastic!
    As well as all support with planning being perfect, the staff on the day were brilliant. The day flowed perfectly with no effort required by us the bride and groom!
    The food was fantastic, with it all being vegetarian it is brilliant to see a wedding menu with so many vegetarian options to choose from, and even more amazing that it can be made vegan so well too! We opted for a fully vegan wedding and it all tasted amazing.
    We would fully recommend the Chilli Barn as a venue!

    Lovely venue, friendly and flexible staff, and delicious cakes!

    We needed a venue for a short morning ceremony and drinks reception before going to our main venue which wasn't registered.
    The place is beautiful, and a great location with country views out the back. We had 30 guests, and requested a late morning coffee, tea and cake reception rather than canapés. The team were flexible and made us lovely cakes!
    It wasn't cheap in relation to our budget, and we were only able to hire for just a morning because it was an off-season wedding. But overall it was a lovely place and would definitely recommend for a small wedding.

    We’ve just had our wedding at the chilli barn. We couldn’t have imagined it at a better venue! The venue and its surroundings was the perfect spot for us to create our special day! The food went down an absolute storm, it was fantastic!

    All the staff at the chilli barn were outstanding! They couldn’t have done any more for us, whatever it was that we needed they made it happen! Thank you so so much!

    Exceeded our expectations

    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.

    Chilli Barn's reply:

    Hello Marysia & Matt,

    We want to say a huge thank you for taking the time to write us this amazing review! Your wedding day was wonderful, full of friends, family and personal touches.

    We're so pleased we managed to exceed your expectations and cater a fully vegan wedding on your behalf.

    We can't thank you enough for choosing Chilli Barn for your big day and your kind words have been shared with our fabulous team!

    We had the most incredible day.

    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.

    Thank you for your review Jo!

    Thank you SO MUCH for helping make it the best day

    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

    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!
