Lovely day!
Venue Service

By Mr and Mrs Ogden, on 19 May 2019Date of Wedding - 16 May 2019

I would like to thank the staff who made my daughters wedding day Thursday go so smoothly we had a lovely day. The grooms family had never been to a wedding, Simone and Liam are the first to become Mr and Mrs Ogden so his family were overwhelmed to start with but with the kindness of all the staff. They had a lovey time thank you.

Thank you so much for an amazing day!

Thank you so much for an amazing day! I have had so many of my guests compliment the venue, the food and the hospitality from all of your staff. We would like to say a special massive thank you to Wayne, he kept us up to date throughout the whole day and it could not have run smoother, nothing was too much to ask, he really did add to our day and i’ve also had a few guests comment on just how lovely he was, wedding days are normally a bit stressful however ours was very stress free and relaxing due to the support from Wayne throughout the day.

Hello, I would just like to say a massive thank you to all at the barn brasserie!!! Every single member of staff went above and beyond for us on our special day! We had the most incredible time and all our guests have commented on how wonderful you all were and how beautiful the venue and the food was. We really can not say enough nice things on how amazing you all were both in the run up to the day and on the day itself. And we would also like to say a big thank you to Wayne who really did bend over backwards to make sure everything went perfectly.... We didn't have to worry about a thing. Thank you once again.

Our wedding day held with you on Saturday turned out to be an amazing day with amazing food and helpful staff, they could not do enough to make sure our day ran smooth. Special thank you to Wayne the restaurant manager who without you I think we would of been all over the place, you spent the time to calm my nerves made sure we had all we needed from drinks to the food service and made sure each and everyone of our guests had everything they needed. You are a true gentleman. Joe behind the bar knew what we needed before we knew ourselves, he even made sure I (the bride) had a drink in her hand at all times why I mingled with my guests. And thank you Claire for the many emails and discussions we had putting the day altogether. Thank you to all of you at The Barn and Merry Christmas love Mr and Mrs Stevens

Beautiful Barn, Perfect!
Venue Service

By Mr and Mrs Beech, on 06 Oct 2018Date of Wedding - 20 Sep 2018

We recently got married at The Barn on 20th September 2018. We are so delighted that we got married here, as it is a beautiful barn and also was perfect for our intimate wedding. Everything has been amazing from the very first day when we decided that we wanted our wedding to be at the barn. Claire O'Sullivan has been excellent, she's always been ahead of the game and on top of the wedding planning, structure and arrangement. She has always been very attentive, sweet, kind and thoughtful towards all of our needs, questions and wedding requirements. When the big day arrived, Claire, Wayne and the team brilliant, Claire and Wayne especially were so attentive, helpful, well organised and together they made our day run so smoothly, we didn't even look at the clock once. We simply enjoyed every moment of our special day. Thank you all for a wonderful day. Mr and Mrs Beech xXx

Hi Kirsty, Wayne & Team! I will write a much better review for you when everything has settled but I just want to say the biggest thank you. You made our day absolutely perfect from start to finish and for that I can't thank you enough! Kirsty, Tom told me how much you helped with dressing the venue on the day and through out the whole planning process you have just surpassed all expectations! Your attention to detail is phenomenal and you are the kindest most lovely person I think I've ever met!! Wayne, you looked after us so well. You kept me calm throughout the day and Tom told me you reassured him about the speeches so thank you!! You kept everything running like clockwork and nothing was too much trouble for you. You are fantastic at what you do and you should definitely MC more often you were brilliant at it!! And finally the team :) please give the biggest thanks to all of the team that helped on the day. I can't fault a single thing. The food was out of this world tasty, everyone has told us how good it was and my dad is dying for the recipe of the chicken's sauce! Everyone that helped serve the food was incredible and did it with such class and ease! All in all we had an amazing day so a final thank you because without you all it couldn't of happened!! Thank you!!!!
