Perfect Day
Venue Service

By Mr & Mrs Legassick, on 31 Jul 2016Date of Wedding - 02 Jul 2016

A massive thank you to Jonathan and the team at the Barn. I would definitely recommend this venue for your wedding. Jonathan is a complete professional, he planned my whole day down the the last detail. He was always available for questions or queries - not that there were many at all as he was so organised! All the staff made us feel at home every time we visited. The food was amazing, picking the menu was fun, completely customised to your own taste. Our guest loved the food and drink, everyone looked well fed and watered! The barn looked beautiful all made up, Jonathan and his team must of spent ages decorating it for us, it looked amazing. The rooms there were lovely and our friends and family that stayed were very happy, especially with the breakfast the next morning. I would 100% recommend this venue to any couple, all our friends and family are still talking about it now and many have said it was the best wedding they have been to. My sisters wanted us to get married there again the following weekend so they could do it all over again! So again a massive thank you to Jonathan and all the team for a wonderful wedding day, we couldn't of done it without you and we will be visiting again very soon for cheesecake!

It was an absolute pleasure!! Weddings are the pinnacle of what a caterer can achieve and effect, and as such, we leave no stone unturned. Designing The Barn, watching it rise, seeing it fill with restaurant customers, has all been an absolute pleasure. However, watching the face a a bride when she walks in to The Barn on that special day, as they say... PRICELESS My best wishes to you and Paul and hope to see you again soon Jonathan and all at The Inn

Fantastic Wedding Venue
Venue Service

By Simon & Emma Powell, on 21 Jun 2016

A massive thank you to Jonathan and his team at the Hare and Hounds for ensuring our wedding day went smoothly. You made sure my wife and I had nothing to worry about on the day and more importantly the run up to the day because of your meticulous planning. All of your team are extremely professional, with 2 special thanks going to Claire for looking after us and our guests, plus David for going above and beyond when one of our guests was stranded at the end of the evening, you ensured they got home safely. The food and drink was just what was expected and went down well with everyone. I would happily recommend The Barn to anyone looking for a venue where you want the personal touch, as that is what you will certainly get from Jonathan and his team. Look forward to seeing you all soon Simon Powell

Our Celebration all the way from Japan!
Venue Service

By David & Yukina Vickers, on 06 May 2016

Dear John and staff of Hare & Hounds, Me and my wife had the pleasure of holding our wedding party at your Barn venue on April 17. We just wanted to write to say thank you very much for making it such a memorable occasion, from the delicious food and drink, to the beautiful room, and the great bar next door! While a number of our guests came from from beyond UK shores, everyone was very satisfied with the meal and service. Although we live in Japan, we hope to visit you again for a drink or two next time we are in Newbury to say "thanks" again in person! Best, David & Yukina

My Sisters Wedding Celebrations
Venue Service

By Caroline C, on 03 Jun 2015

My Sister was married on Saturday May 2nd and we had the celebrations at the Hare and Hounds. I was told that this was only the second wedding that had been hosted at this venue. You would not have thought it! Jonathan was an amazing host! The Barn was perfect for the occasion...a beautiful setting. All staff were friendly and accommodating. The food was of a high quality and served quickly and a good breakfast the next morning! The rooms were reasonably priced and had all that you needed. Well done to everyone involved and a special thanks to Jonathan for making our day perfect! - Caroline

A wedding to remember
Venue Service

By Dee G, on 03 Jun 2015

We stayed here because we were attending a wedding at this venue and it was wonderful. From the quaint bar area to the wedding conservatory and as for the smoking area, well that made me want to take up smoking again!! Seriously it's lovely. Apparently it was only the second wedding they had hosted. You would have never believed it! The staff were perfect. From serving the food delicious food to helping to helping us with the odd room problem. Good value for money and a wonderful stay, I would definitely stay here again.
