About

Pangdean Old Barn is a uniquely elegant and relaxed venue situated in the glorious South Downs National Park, just a short drive from Brighton, England. This historic farm is licensed to hold civil ceremonies and is the perfect choice for a romantic country wedding.

Facilities and Capacity

Pangdean Old Barn can accommodate between 50 and 190 people and offers a choice of three event spaces. These include the Old Barn, the Stable, and the flint-walled garden overlooking the South Downs National Park. The Old Barn is a highly versatile Grade II listed building with a magnificent oak-beamed roof and sufficient space to comfortably hold 196 guests. The Stable is an ideal setting for a more intimate ceremony or reception. The Stable adjoins the Old Barn and central courtyard. After your ceremony, your guests can enjoy drinks and canapes amidst the potted olive trees and the warm, comforting glow of the chimineas before adjourning to the Stable for a meal, followed by an evening of dancing and fun.

Services Offered

Pangdean Old Barn is available for exclusive use, and you and your loved ones will enjoy the utmost care and attention from the moment you arrive.

    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.

    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.

    Simply the best venue!

    We just wanted to say how AMAZING our wedding day was. We always knew we had picked a special venue, that was miles ahead of everywhere else. However, we couldn’t have imagined just how wonderful the day would turn out to be.

    Our guests haven’t stopped raving about the day, Jamie gets a particular mention every time! The food was outstanding and there was so much of it! All of our guests have also praised the food, and there are a few ex chefs amongst them! Not only was the food amazing, the waiting staff even offered top ups of sauce etc, the sticky toffee sauce was out of this world! Even our Photographer was wowed by her meal - and she visits a lot of venues!

    During the drinks reception, the canapés were presented brilliantly and the quality and quantity was excellent. Our guests commented on how attentive all of the staff were, one noted that she had barely a mouthful of Prosecco before being offered a top up - this is the kind of service we like!! Another mentioned that they couldn’t believe how many canapés they actually got to eat, as they had been to many weddings where they’d only got one or two of each, at Pangdean, three at a time was encouraged… and irresistible!

    Hannah would like to give a particular mention to Crissia because she made me feel at ease as soon as she met me from the car and reassured me the barn was looking beautiful (although there wasn’t a doubt in my mind!). Jamie put Joe at ease just as instantly and ensured he knew what to do before the ceremony etc. Every single member of staff did their job with a massive smile on their face, and were so welcoming and helpful.

    Despite visiting Pangdean on many occasions whilst planning, I was still blown away by how absolutely jaw dropping and stunning it was! Your team are absolutely brilliant at venue styling and it turned out to be everything I imagined - and more!

    Literally everything is thought of and executed to perfection at Pangdean, we couldn’t have imagined a day running more smoothly, or our guests being any more impressed…. with everything!!

    Our only regret is that we might not be able to return unless we get invited to a wedding at Pangdean - we will be looking out for one of your supper club evenings as we are desperate to return and take in all of the beauty Pangdean offers!

    Finally, we’d like to mention Gill and Nicky for their help in all of the planning of our wedding, everything we asked for was accomodated and even when we changed the date three times due to Covid, they couldn’t have been more helpful or understanding.

    Everyone who works at Pangdean is warm hearted and does everything they can to ensure perfection, it is truly the most wonderful venue.

    Best Venue!

    Well, where to begin. The Pangdean team now feel like family having had to postpone our wedding from 2020 and with covid times, we also had a mini wedding. Each event was precious. Each guest was looked after over and beyond expectations. The staff couldn't be more friendly and caring to everyone. The team are so accommodating and flexible to whatever you need but make it so easy to arrange and bring your own personalisation to the day. The venue is full of character and for any event! We persoanlly loved the garden that is so well kept and it was a dream of ours to have the ceremony outside under their beauitul mulberry treet.
    The food is so delicious and always gets a comment!! Which is great if you are a foodie!
    The venue is family run and this seems to make such a huge difference in how you are looked after. Thank you so much for having us! Wish we could do it every year!

    Staff go above and beyond

    From the moment we booked until the big day the staff were happy to help with any questions and would accommodate us for multiple visits to plan our day. They worked with us closely to ensure the decorations and food and drink were exactly to our liking. The set up on the day was beautiful, they provided us with some of their decorations as well as putting out the ones we provided.

    The staff were so attentive not just to the bride and groom but to every guest, ensuring everyone was happy and enjoyed their time. Guests have mentioned to us how amazing all the food was and the people with dietary requirements (vegan, veggie and gluten free) were extremely pleased with their alternatives and really thankful for the venue going out of their way to provide them alternative canapes as well.

    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!

    The Most Amazing Venue

    My son and his now husband got married at Pangdean recently and I cannot stress how wonderful this place is. The staff were amazing. Nothing was too much trouble for them and most of the time we didn't even notice they were there. The food was incredible and the day was absolutely perfect from start to finish. I cannot recommend this venue highly enough. There are not enough words for me to describe how wonderful the day was. Thank you to everyone at Pangdean Barn.

    Wedding August 19

    We celebrated our wedding at pangdean Friday the 30th August and can honestly say the service, food and organisation were perfect, you couldn't fault it (I am hard to please as well). We had the most amazing day and we would not have changed anything. Many have said it was the best wedding they’ve ever been to and by far the best food. With pangdean what you see is what you get, There are no additional hidden costs and they go above and beyond to ensure the wedding is how you want it. We are over the moon we chose Pangdean.

    Amazing Venue, Fabulous Team, Dream Day!

    We found Pangdean online and fell in love with the place when we 1st visited. The place has it all- picturesque gardens, beautiful barn, great food but what makes it is the team working there. The team offer support and advice as you need it and will go the extra mile to ensure your day more than meets your expectations. We had an amazing wedding day, the team even managed to make the sun shine so we could get married outside :) We could not have picked a better venue!

    Our wonderful wedding 26 June 2019

    I simply can’t put in words how fabulous our wedding was at Pangdean. From our first initial visit to the end of the evening on our wedding day, Gill, Anne, Nicky Michael and all of the team made our day and all the planning totally wonderful and stress free. All of our 91 guests commented how beautiful the venue is and the warm friendly super efficient staff, some are still talking about it now. We cannot thank you all at Pangdean for giving is the best day ever. We cannot recommend this stunning venue and wonderful team enough.

    The Perfect Day!

    Pangdean barn and the staff were fantastic from the initial viewing, planning, through to the wedding itself.
    We had rain forecast for our day but after the ceremony the sun came out for us to go into the garden and they quickly responded to this change of plan!
    The food was outstanding and happily accommodated for all dietary requirements. They were even on hand for emergencies including sewing up the grooms suit jacket that ripped 10 mins into the day!
    Thank you so much to everyone at Pangdean Barn, we had the most magical wedding day from start to finish!

    Perfect Christmas Wedding

    From beginning to end the Pangdean staff made sure our wedding event went exactly to our wishes and we could not have been happier with the result. The venue was stunning, the food delicious and the service / staff help was flawless. We continue to get amazing feedback from the guests and we both think back to the day as being perfect. Pangdean exceeded all expectations by a mile and we look forward to the day we can join them again for another celebration. Perhaps a 10 year anniversary.

    Superb venue!

    What a venue! We got married here and from the first time we met the staff to when we picked up our stuff afterwards, they were 100% amazing. Extremely friendly and caring. We had Jackie who looked after our day and she was incredible she really did make sure our day was perfect we can't thank her enough she really touched our hearts. The owners what lovely people they are you can really tell they love what they do. The food was extremely tasty and good quality. The barn speaks for itself its just stunning. They literally do everything for you they set it all up perfectly as we asked and even blew up our 76 balloons for us. It really was the perfect day and it's all down to the staff at the venue. Can't recommend it enough. If your due to Wed go look you will regret it if you don't. Thank you so much pangdean!
