Awful service during the pandemic
Maidens Barn were great to start with but as soon as lockdown was announced in March 2020, just before our wedding, they, along with their suppliers were horrible and so unfair to us. All the care and customer service they provided to 'seal the deal' and keep hold of our money, went down the drain. They forced us to postpone our wedding to a date we did not want, refusing outright to refund us our money and also charging us additional for beer that apparently they had purchased. When asked to show us the receipt, the owner, Katherine's response was that it was best i go elsewhere to have our wedding! Isn't it fair to ask for a receipt for something you are charged for? As if having to cancel our wedding wasn't stressful enough, Maiden's Barn, and in particular Katherine and their service providers had made it a living hell for us. After lots of back and forth with the venue, they refunded us our money, however their suppliers refused to do so - which left us with no choice but to postpone with them to December 2020. Come December, situation with Covid doesn't get better and we go through the same malarky again. Managed to get some of our money back but still fighting. Having read CMA and Government guidelines, Maidens Barn, Host Catering, Piano DJ and the florist have all acted unfairly in March and now again in December. CMA guidelines clearly state that if we had to cancel our wedding due to Covid, it is our right to get a full refund including the deposit, but these providers have made their own rules. I have written a formal complaint to CMA but I know this will take time, so I am going public with this. The reason we wanted to cancel in the first place was because of the uncertainty of the situation and we didn't feel comfortable leaving such a huge chunk of our savings with these providers. But they just outright refused and put up a fight to keep OUR money. They have been nothing but unfair and I am going to definitely fight my case. We have the right to demand to get our money back.Sent on 21/10/2020

We have had various comments from friends about how well it all run and a lot of comments about the Amazing food!
Thank you to Juliet for being so amazing during our wedding breakfast. She spent the whole time going round to various tables making sure all was okay and everyone was enjoying themselves. Everyone loved the food so thank you so much.
Elliot was great the whole evening too. Again he ensured it all run smoothly and was always on hand if we needed anything.
