Set on an historic farm in the glorious South Downs National Park, Pangdean Old Barn is a uniquely elegant and relaxed venue that is just a few minute’s drive from Brighton. Licensed to hold ceremonies and with in-house catering that serves delicious food, you can choose to hold your ceremony in the historic Old Barn, the intimate Stable, or in the flint-walled garden overlooking the South Downs National Park.
The Grade II Listed Old Barn is a wonderful space for a romantic country wedding. You and your guests can enjoy the atmosphere in the barn, whilst you exchange your vows under the magnificent oak-beamed roof. The Old Barn can be set up in a variety of ways, and can accommodate up to 196 guests.
The Stable is the ideal space for a more intimate occasion, whether for your ceremony or reception (accommodating up to 70 guests). The Stable adjoins the Old Barn and central courtyard so your guests can move easily between the ceremony and reception spaces, with drinks and canapes being served in our courtyard, or covered courtyard. In the evening the chimineas in the courtyard are lit, the lights twinkle in the potted olive trees and your guests can enjoy dancing the night away or enjoy catching up with loved ones in the cosy 'sofa scene' in the Stable.
Exclusively yours for the day, you and your guests will be beautifully looked after from the minute you arrive.

The most beautiful wedding venue in Sussex!
Pangdean is the most beautiful wedding venue! We had so many compliments from our guests about the venue, staff and food. Being able to get married outside in the garden, in such a beautiful location, made our day extra special. It was a gorgeous day and so having the drinks reception in the garden with lawn games was perfect. The barn is beautifully lit with fairy lights which was one of the things that we loved when we first walked into the barn and instantly I knew it was our wedding venue. The food was fantastic and I couldn’t fault it at all! The thing I will remember the most about our wedding day was the staff. I had always heard great things about Pangdean but the staff were incredible and honestly go above and beyond to make you feel special on the day. Thank you so much to Pangdean - the venue will always be a special place to my husband and I!Sent on 05/09/2021

An unforgettable, beautiful experience
Choosing Pangdean as our venue was the best decision we made among so many we had to make for our wedding.Sent on 12/09/2021
At a time of so much uncertainty due to Covid 19, we needed people we could trust, but we got so much more than that: attention, care, dedication, professionalism and engagement.
We got a beautiful venue (we were lucky with the weather so got married in the garden) and amazing food but it was the staff that really made it special. They were all so calm and reassuring and we could see that they were genuinely sharing our excitement!
Ayisha, who was waiting, was really looking after me (the bride) - making sure I'd eaten enough, following me around in the garden to bring my favourite starters!
Gill and Krizya were incredibly helpful and professional, always available to answer our questions (even the silliest ones!) and were super flexible.
And last but definitely not least, big thanks to Jamie, who looked after logistics on the day. What a pro. My family couldn't come from Brazil because of Covid19 and so he helped us set up a live stream for them to watch proceedings over a YouTube channel. He set up the cameras and sound for the ceremony outside, and then later in the barn. He was also kind enough to follow us around with the camera during the drinks reception, so that those watching remotely could feel like they were a part of it. Finally he was great with the kids, entertaining them at their tables in the barn, and helping our seven-year-old master of ceremonies with the announcement of speeches!
We could not recommend Pangdean enough.
Truly wonderful place.

The best day and the best venue
The staff at Pangdean ensured we had the best day of our lives on our wedding day! Gill and the team made planning easy, nothing was too much trouble. On the day, Michael, Nicky and the team ensured everything ran smoothly and we didn't have to worry about a thing. All our guests commented on the outstanding food, beautiful venue and incredible, attentive staff. We really couldn't have chosen a better venue for our day!Sent on 08/03/2020
