    Very bad experience

    I’ve paid the venue and catering deposit so far for this venue and I have to say that I am not impressed with the service I’ve been receiving so far. My wedding is next year. During the initial consultation, we weren’t told about important payment things such as that Catering only accepts bank transfers. What’s more is that on the phone to a member of the catering team, they said a lot of couples are shocked when they hear we only do bank transfers. Errm maybe this should be said upfront then before people pay the venue deposit?

    I was also told only after paying the venue deposit that we could not bring any of our own snacks such as crisps and that if we wanted them we would have to pay the catering team.

    I then called and asked if we could bring peanuts to put on the table and they said yes. Today I emailed saying that along with the peanuts can we also bring bombay mix and I got an email saying no to both the peanuts and bombay mix? I’m genuinely confused. Why did one person say it was ok? And this person now says no?

    And now another thing is that the honeymoon suite, we also have to do a bank transfer for that too.

    I will take the blame for some of this as I should have asked these questions before booking the venue.

    The wedding is more than a year away and Mythe Barn has already dampened my mood.

    Well done! Maybe you’ll get an award for that too

    Amazing, accomodating, helpful

    The staff at Mythe were amazing, very accommodating and helpful to the very end. They catered for all of the dietary needs and helped keep everything running smoothly.
    The food was delicious and the venue speaka for itself needing very little decoration.

    A smooth experience at a fantastic wedding

    Mythe Barn did a fantastic job of looking after us and making our special day truly special. They clearly run a very professional outfit and this showed from initial booking to the wedding day.

    Post booking and pre-day, we had frequent communications with them to build a detailed plan for the day, ensured all necessary decisions were made and that we were ready for the big day when it arrived. We had multiple video calls with the events team to get this planning done, and for all the various questions we had we were typically able to contact the right team member either immediately or within a working day (via call back) to get our questions answered.

    The advice they gave us on how to structure our day was invaluable and allowed us to plan our own customisations to perfection.

    The only criticism, out of everything both pre and during the wedding, was that around 3 weeks before the wedding we got an email asking for us to ensure various documents (e.g. insurance) were held by our external vendors as a mandatory requirement for them to be allowed on-site. This was the one point of critical pressure I felt with the team, as if we were aware of this over a year ago when we were organising these vendors we would have dealt with the documentation and questions then. Thankfully, we only had 1 discrepancy and via a telephone call the situation as quickly resolved - but this was a stressful thing to deal with just before our big day, and I hope that for future couples these requirements are made clear initially (with guidance on if they are flexible to not unfairly disregard potential vendors).

    Anyway, having planned our day, on the big day things ran extremely smoothly. As the groom, turning up 2 hrs early was purely to enjoy the scenes - as the team were busy putting the final touches together based on our instruction and the venue was complete (I had very little to do other than fine tune cravats!). Throughout the day, ourselves and our guests were transitioned around the venue smoothly and clearly well respected. The smiling staff did a fantastic job of looking after us all.

    The venue itself is amazing - plenty of open space, great and clean facilities, and unbelievably good food. Everywhere looked immaculate, and many of the guests completed the tasty treats presented. Even on a November evening, the outside courtyard was well utilised with heaters and our BBQ (which, naturally, was also delicious).

    Overall, our day at Mythe was fantastic. The organisation was exemplary (bar 1 item) and the venue deserves its high praise both past guests and external vendors give it (typically, saying to a vendor we had booked Mythe resulted in them remarking on their organisation, quality and great food).

    I would like to specifically thank Amy for working with us pre-wedding to plan and organise the day on our build up, and to Ellis Ryan for being a fantastic host on the day, looking after us extremely well and ensuring things came off without a hitch.

    The best day of our lives!

    We got married at Mythe Barn on 13th June 2021, and I cannot recommend this venue enough. From our first visit, we knew this was our wedding venue. It is absolutely beautiful, inside and out. The food and drinks are all fantastic, and the staff are utterly amazing. They have gone above and beyond for us, on the wedding day and the entire lead up to it!
    We wish we could do it all over again! Thank you so much to everyone at Mythe Barn!

    The most perfect day!

    We booked Mythe Barn back in January 2019 for a July 2020 wedding. Due to Covid19 sadly we had to postpone until July 2021.

    Eveything was perfect from start to finish, the communication we had with Amy was amazing, every little question and worry had she was there to help and reassure us - and we had a lot of questions.

    Our wedding this year was two days before restrictions lifted and everything was perfect. The weather was stunning, the service was fantastic and we has the most amazing day ever!

    We can not recommend the Mythe Barn enough, the staff are fantastic and a massive thank you to Amy and Julie who made sure the day ran amazingly!

    I wish we could do it all again!

    Heartbreaking Experience

    I had a terrible experience with this Venue. Unfortunately, our wedding could not take place due to corona virus. Mythe Barn made this experience so painful. We no longer plan to have a big wedding as we feel so upset over the whole situation. Eventually we have been able to get a refund from Mythe Barn, but it took 3 months, numerous emails, phone calls, consumer rights service and eventually a solicitor. Mythe Barn fought us all the way on getting any kind of refund. They initially offered to move our date from a Saturday in April to a Weekday in September, due to the difficult situation we were tempted to accept this (despite the £4,000 difference in venue price between dates that we would not get back) however we requested a refund for some of the guest meals that we knew would no longer be needed (as we knew many people could not attend including my father and sister). Despite many emails and phone calls they absolutely refused this request. They then told us that if we did not want to accept the new dates (for late 2020) then we would be cancelling the wedding and therefore not entitled to any kind of refund. Since our wedding insurance did not cover ‘acts of government’ we felt so crushed. Eventually we had no choice but to hire a solicitor as we believed we were entitled to at least a refund on some of the meals as the venue had not incurred costs here. After numerous weeks, emails and letters, Mythe barn eventually agreed to give us a refund. (Even though the solicitor’s communications, said nothing we hadn’t already told them). They did however retain some money for costs incurred – in the region of £800 – they would not give us a detailed breakdown of why they kept this much other then to say it was the tasting event, Catering meetings , correspondence and event planning. I’m still upset that they will not explain why they have kept the £800, especially as we have incurred at least this to have a solicitor involved to claim back the refund we were so clearly entitled to. I feel for the couples who did accept the later dates for fear of losing all their money as they have now ended up stuck with a wedding so different to the one they had planned for so long. Eventually Mythe Barn did start offering similar dates for next year which would have been an acceptable alternative, if only they had offered that months ago it would of saved us so much heartache. I can’t begin to tell you how hurt we are over this whole situation and I still cannot believe the way Mythe Barn treated us.

    Mr & Mrs Rees Wedding

    Great location and venue, however some guests sat nav will take then past the entrance so make sure directions are clear. Ceremony room (slate floor) was very spacious and allowed our 90 guests to be seated with no issues but in the summer months I would ask for the glass doors to be opened as it can get very hot. The courtyard and the new bbq section is great and allows guests to relax especially when in warmer months.. bar area is great but a little small, and prices are extremely high.. selection on beers is decent, no drinks are served before the ceremony. The main hall can easily cater for 100 guests with plenty of room between tables.. again in the warmer months I recommend that the doors be opened to allow some air in. Food service is ok however we had to wait along time for all tables to be served and change in menu orders for vegetarians can be difficult without notice. All in all the venue is very decent and the standard of food was excellent, the onsite accommodation is very good however the bridal suite has a strong smell of sewers and there is NO signal what so ever so make sure that ALL transport is organised before hand. I would definitely recommend this venue but make sure that your wedding organiser for the day communicates and make sure things run smoothly as we found ours wasn’t great. Also NO pets are allowed at the venue, not even on the grass area outside for pictures as we found out to our surprise.

    Everything we wanted and more!

    A massive thank you to Becci, Galloping Gourmet & all the staff for looking after us & making our wedding day on the 5th
    March 2017 so memorable & beautiful.

    Becci - thank you for being such a star & ensuring everything ran smoothly & for looking after my mother in law while she set up in the morning.

    We would also like to thank the two ladies who work for Galloping Gourmet & helped set up the wedding venue on Friday beforehand with us & also on the wedding day. You were both so lovely, hardworking & nothing was too much trouble.

    The venue is absolutely beautiful & from the moment we viewed it we could never imagine getting married anywhere but there. Throughout the visits the staff were amazing, providing various suggestions to make the day that bit more unique & perfect.

    The food... just WOW! Everyone and we mean everyone could not stop complimenting it all. The quality was first class! We highly recommend the Scotch Egg, that was delicious! The way it was presented was fantastic & the service was brilliant. Also the popcorn, cocktails, hog roast were amazing too.

    We can't thank you enough for all your hard work & for looking after us & all our guests so well. Everyone has said it was the best wedding they had been to & in our eyes without you guys that wouldn't have been possible.

    It was everything we wanted and more!

    Thank you so much!

    The most amazing wedding day

    We had the most amazing wedding day at Mythe Barn! The staff are wonderful, Molly was such an asset to the day. She and her team worked hard all day to make sure all of our guests were looked after and to make sure our venue was prepared and ready for the big day ahead. The team are always on hand to answer your questions. Although it rained all day, it didn't matter. The venue is so perfectly designed and so beautiful that we genuinely didn't miss going outside for our photographs.

    Mythe Barn is one of the best I have experienced

    Mythe Barn was everything we wanted for a wedding venue. An extremely high standard of décor, catering and customer service. Everything you could need to hold a wedding has been thought of there. As an Event Manager myself I’ve worked with a number of venues and Mythe Barn is one of the best I have experienced.
