The Barn .... a more personal Wedding Venue

The Barn is unique in many ways not least in that it has been rebuilt from a centuries old Elizabethan barn which was originally constructed in a Kent village and re-erected on its present site some years ago. It reflects the traditional Kentish style with oak beams and columns and this creates a truly wonderful atmosphere, just perfect for a wedding venue.

We can offer the sole and exclusive use of our entire venue and gardens with absolutely no venue or reception hire charges. Fully inclusive packages start from £2,995 for 50 guests.

We are licensed for civil ceremonies which are held in our beautiful new Orangery overlooking the lovely award winning courtyard style gardens. During warmer months the windows open out allowing the outside in.

Guests are seated in the pretty and atmospheric restaurant for the wedding breakfast and uniquely given a choice of menu for each course. As your wedding day is such a celebration our inclusive drinks package includes Champagne as standard and at no extra cost.

We can accommodate up to 150 guests for the evening reception and as dusk falls the venue and gardens are illuminated with an abundance of twinkling lights to give a truly romantic backdrop for your celebrations.

Philippe, the General Manager of over 25 years fully understands that there is no more important event than that of your wedding day. He offers a wealth of experience and friendliness to all his couples and everyone becomes part of the family throughout the planning process.

We are passionate about weddings and are proud winners of the 2019 Kent Wedding Awards having previously won this prestigious award in 2016 and 2013.

Philippe would really love to meet with you and show you how The Barn could be the perfect venue for you, so please do not hesitate to get in touch.

    Amazing value for money

    We had our wedding at The Barn on 25.8.19 and it was a fantastic day!

    Phillippe, Janet and the whole team went above and beyond to give us our perfect day in 31°c temperatures.

    So many of our guests have complimented us on the food and the relaxed nature of the venue. The wedding breakfast was amazing and the wine was gorgeous and flowing very generously.

    Everyone LOVED the evening BBQ, we’ve heard some guests had 4 burgers as they were just so tasty! It was set up beautifully with our decorations and flowers and the garden looked beautiful as always. Nothing was too much trouble for them (including building our cake stand and setting up a doughnut tower with 2 tier cake on top!) and it was so reassuring throughout the whole process knowing that Janet would answer any query almost immediately!

    Luke Swift the resident DJ was also brilliant, even doing a kid’s disco and dance competition and doing an amazing job of our requested UK Garage hour!

    We are so pleased we chose to hold our wedding at The Barn and would recommend it to any couple considering it for their wedding, especially as their offering is the most amazing value for money too. They even gave us a box with all the leftover wine from our wedding breakfast, so I got over the post wedding comedown by remaining pleasantly sozzled for a fortnight! Thank you, so much!

    What an amazing venue!

    Amazing Wedding Day. Had my wedding at The Barn on 4th August. What an amazing venue.

    From start to finish the staff were amazing, venue was decorated beautifully and the food was delicious.

    Everyone that came commented on what a lovely wedding venue it was and how lovely the food was and I cannot recommend this place enough for making my day so special and easy for me.

    Far beyond expectations

    Our special day 28/07/2019. I cannot praise the staff at the Barn highly enough.

    From our first visit to this venue, we knew it was the place we wanted to get married.

    Contact with Janet and Philippe throughout the year leading up to the day and on the day itself was excellent. They took care of everyone attending, going far and beyond expectations.

    The food, service, attention to detail, commitment and value for money were incredible and we had many comments from guests to back this up. We can now see why you have won so many awards as a wedding venue, it looked beautiful on the day, very quaint and personal.

    Thank you so much for everything and we look forward to returning!

    The best day of my life

    I just wanted to say a huge thank you for everything you did to make our wedding day so perfect. You and your team were amazing and all the guests had a wonderful time. Some have even said it was the best wedding they have been to!

    After all the planning in the months leading up to the wedding, it was so lovely to be able to relax and enjoy our day without worrying about anything, the restaurant looked exactly as I had imagined. The food was fabulous and everyone loved it.

    Thank you Janet for all your help with the last minute guest and table changes ,

    It really was the best day of my life and I just wish we could do it all again!!

    If you want me to add this to your Facebook page then I will be happy to do so - I would definitely recommend The Barn to anyone who is looking for a wedding venue.

    Thank you again!

    Would love to do it all again!

    On behalf of my wife and I can I please say a massive thank you for everything you, Philippe and The Barn did for us on Sunday 30th June 2019.

    From when we first saw your beautiful pub online on NYE 2018, we fell in love with it instantly. Everything after, you guys made it seem-less for us and catered to all our needs with care and attention. Which is amazing as we know how busy you guys are!

    The day itself was amazing and although the we had the horrible news of my grandad passing that morning, I would personally like to thank you for keeping the ship steady during what was a whirlwind day of emotions for the whole party.

    We’ve had nothing but good feedback from everyone who attended you venue that day. We would love to do it all over again and believe me we’re trying:).

    Thank you again.

    The most amazing day

    I would like to say a huge thank you to everyone at The Barn, we got married here on 9th June 2019.

    Our day was just perfect, exactly what we had dreamed of and more, we wanted the relaxed feel and honestly our guests said that’s exactly how they all felt! We went off to the park opposite to have some traditional photos taken - this had over run, so we were around an hour late to sit down for dinner, however this didn’t seem to be a problem for the barn - so we just headed upstairs a hour later! The food was amazing, During the meal they kept on top of the table wine, ensuring there were bottles on the table at all times! Everyone commented on how generous they were with the wine!

    Janet - the lovey lady behind the emails! Thank you so much for answering my 1000s of questions, and making me feel like nothing was to much!

    The staff - the staff are brilliant, they were just in the background tidying and keeping the day flow amazingly, but never intrusive. There was never a wait at the bar - and we had over 100 guests in the evening!

    Philippe - throughout the planning process he was amazing, he helped with everything and when I dropped off my many boxes of decorations, with 100 things to tell him he just listened and decorated the venue exactly how I had imagined it.

    I just couldn’t put into writing how amazing everyone and everything was at the barn. Thank you for the most amazing day!! xx

    A huge thank you

    Dear Janet, Philippe and all of the team at The Barn.

    We wanted to write to you all to say a huge thank you for all your efforts leading up to and on the day of our wedding. I knew I would be writing this message from the moment we booked our wedding with you; partly because of the reviews we had already read before coming to visit you for the first time, partly because of all of the beautiful photos we’d seen on social media sites, but mainly because of the relaxed, welcoming and professional atmosphere at The Barn. We were not disappointed!

    Echoing what many others have said before us, the service received leading up to the day, from Janet via email and from Philippe in person when we visited, was faultless. When the day arrived, we were so relaxed about everything, knowing it would be wonderful.

    Philippe and the team decorated the venue exactly as we’d imagined it – thank you so much! On the day, our guests were commenting endlessly on how lovely the venue was and how much they enjoyed the food. We were looked after very well – my wine glass magically refilled itself!

    We have already booked the honeymoon suite again for our first anniversary and are looking forward to our anniversary meal with you already! (I do like to plan ahead!!) Thank you, thank you, thank you! Best wishes

    A day we will remember forever

    Hello Janet, saying thank you just doesn’t seem enough – what an incredible wedding day. Everything was perfect, which I know is a lot to expect on your wedding, but it really was.

    All of our decoration instructions were carried out better than I could have organised myself and each stage of the day ran seamlessly due to your incredible team.

    You have a beautiful venue, the food received compliments all day long and its a day we will remember forever.

    A special thanks to Philippe who seems to be able to read the day better than anyone and ensured it was a huge success. A personal thanks to Milo whose attentiveness to the family went above and beyond.

    We will continue to sing your praises to anyone we can, all the awards you have won are well deserved. Thank you again for everything xxx

    A truly magical day

    To Janet, Philippe and the whole team at The Barn. We wanted to say a huge thank you for everything you all did to make our wedding such an amazing day – we wouldn’t change a thing about it.

    From the moment we booked The Barn we knew it would be the perfect venue and we were right! From start to finish the whole day ran smoothly, the staff were absolutely fantastic and everyone had a wonderful time. All of our guests have commented on how beautiful the venue looked, how delicious the food was and how great the atmosphere at The Barn is. Janet, you answered my many emails(!) quickly and nothing was ever a problem. Philippe and the team you made everything look so much better than we expected, the arrangement of the decorations and layout of the restaurant was excellent. DJ Luke was great and played a varied selection of music that had everyone dancing throughout the evening!

    Thank you again for making our wedding day a truly magical day that was enjoyed by everyone that attended, we can’t wait to return to The Barn for dinner very soon.

    An amazing place!

    What an amazing place for us to have our wedding, Janet and Philippe were the perfect hosts, the venue was beautiful and there was nothing too much trouble to accommodate. The food was delicious and all served hot and within good time. I cannot fault anything and can heartily recommend the Barn for your occasion.

    Ours was a little different as our guests thought they were coming to an Engagement party and we surprised them by announcing the wedding 20 minutes before the ceremony – needless to say, the arrangements were complicated by our unusual event, but Philippe and Janet and their team entered into the spirit of the whole event and were brilliant.

    Thank you so much for making our day the most fabulous and special day of our lives.

    The best day of our lives!

    We wanted to get back in touch with you all at The Barn to thank you for what was truly the best day of our lives and although we are now back to everyday life, we still continue to live in our little bubble of wedding day happiness. Sincere gratitude to you and all your staff at The Barn.

    We talk about the day non stop and look back again and again at our photos. Ourselves, family and friends all said how The Barn was the perfect place for our wedding and it was all I could have hoped for, a personalised, relaxed, happy flowing atmosphere, exceeding all our expectations.

    Wish you all at The Barn the best for the future, you deserve all the awards and all the recognition for your passion and knowledge that you have to make a couples dream wedding day come true!

    The best wedding venue in Kent!

    We just wanted to say a huge thank you to everyone at the Barn for making our wedding day so special. Everything went so smoothly throughout the day and the team were very helpful answering and guiding us with any questions we had.

    The team set up the decorations upstairs so beautifully and were even kind enough to move our candles outside in the evening so our guests could sit around candles in the garden as we were very lucky with the weather that day.

    Our day was exactly how described by you "intimate and personal" and we would not have changed anything about the day if we could.

    The food was out of this world, as was the service throughout the day. Luke the DJ was excellent and although the majority of guests were outside enjoying the warm weather there was always people on the dance floor or running in to a song they loved.

    We will recommend the Barn to any future brides and grooms and we hope to attend weddings there in the future.

    Our biggest thanks again to you all. You truly are the best wedding venue in Kent!
