Our Perfect Wedding Day!
Venue Service

By Mrs Key, on 18 Sep 2017Date of Wedding - 17 Sep 2017

We got married at The Barnyard and since the new management have taken over it feels like a new lease of life has been breathed into this beautiful place, having booked our wedding 2 years ago. Our wedding day was absolutely perfect, the food was out of this world amazing - hot, fresh and delicious, and the staff could not do enough for my husband and I and all of our guests. Nothing was too much trouble and the venue was spotlessly clean, the staff and owner were friendly and enthusiastic and we truly felt like we were the first and last people to ever marry at The Barnyard they made the experience so special. Our guests have since commented on how impressed they were - with everything from special dietary requirements, to assistance with elderly relatives and children, and the beautiful venue itself. We have since been for another visit and had a lovely Sunday roast, despite the restaurant hosting a hen party at the same time. I can't thank and praise The Barnyard enough - well worth a visit!

A Perfect Day!

Silver Wedding Celebration
Venue Service

By Annie Evans, on 18 Sep 2017Date of Wedding - 16 Sep 2017

We had a wonderful evening with family and friends at this very attractive venue. Drinks to start outside on a beautiful evening in a lovely setting. The food was delicious, hot and nicely presented and there was plenty of room to eat inside or outside. The staff were very helpful and friendly. It made a very special occasion even more memorable

Fantastic Wedding Celebration
Venue Service

By Julie Sullivan, on 18 Sep 2017Date of Wedding - 15 Sep 2017

We held our wedding celebration in the barn itself (not the marquee) after getting married overseas. It was quite simply the perfect venue, beautiful and romantic, and the courtyard with its twinkling fairy lights is completely magical once darkness falls. All the staff were professional and friendly, couldn't fault them at all. Special thanks go to Tom and Brian with whom we made all the arrangements beforehand - but really I would mention everyone by name if I knew them, as everyone made the evening special to us. We wanted exclusively vegetarian and vegan food, which was outside of their usual offering, but they were helpful and obliging about this and really went the extra mile for us. Everyone commented that the food was totally delicious and attractive, and there was plenty of it, so many thanks for that. All in all, a special, beautiful place with great staff.

THANK YOU Kerrie for all your hard work on our wedding before and on the day! Both you and your staff were fantastic - Grace was super on the day and it ran so smoothly and I know that was down to the hard work you all put in - so thank you again! We couldn't have asked for a better day

What an amazing success, what an amazing team!
Venue Service

By Nicky Darling, on 18 Sep 2017Date of Wedding - 09 Sep 2017

On Saturday we were privileged to hold our celebrations at your venue. It was an amazing success and everything was as good as it possibly could be, including the weather. I would like to put on record our particular gratitude to three members of your team, Kerrie, Brian and Tom, who went above and beyond to ensure that the day was everything we wanted it to be. Their professionalism, attention to detail and ‘can do’ attitude were beyond my wildest expectations and I do have some pretty high standards. I cannot begin to tell you how impressed I was and I am in no doubt that without their particular input, the day, whilst still being successful, would not have been the amazing, memorable night that it turned out to be. In particular, Kerrie worked tirelessly to ensure that I was free to enjoy the evening whilst she managed suppliers, timings and everything else in between. What an asset she must be to your company, totally professional and quietly, but highly efficient. Throughout the event all your staff were wonderful, the venue met our needs perfectly and I cannot think of anything that I would have changed, or any improvements that may have been possible. The food was excellent, fireworks were superb, bar staff were great and the chocolate strawberries will be remembered for many years to come. I was very impressed to see Kerrie, Grace, Brian and Tom on Sunday, still smiling and offering help and assistance as required. What a team you have.

Beautiful Day
Venue Service

By Harry A, on 18 Sep 2017Date of Wedding - 03 Sep 2017

Where to start.. The building and surrounding areas are just beautiful, myself and my partner went to a friends wedding here a few months back and it was truly a beautiful day and evening, the staff couldn't do enough for you and the service was great.. Due to this and only living in Rochester we decided to return on our own today for food in the restaurant, again could not fault the service at all and the food was amazing, we even bought a few of their own produce in the farm shop on our exit.. We would both definitely recommend this brilliantly run establishment to all our family and friends..

Last Minute August Wedding
Venue Service

By Susi Bowen, on 18 Sep 2017Date of Wedding - 27 Aug 2017

Having gone for lunch at the beginning of June, my friend and I were so impressed with the quality and amount of food that I asked whether they would allow me to hold a small private wedding breakfast there in 7 weeks time ...August! The staff were very helpful giving me a tour of the building where it was decided to have the meal in the bar area. Kerrie and Grace were extremely helpful and professional helping to plan the day. We were allowed to decorate the bar area and some of the girls finished off the dcorations for us on the morning of the wedding. Thank you so much. It all looked perfect. Thanks must also go to all the girls who attended us on the day serving hot, tasty food and beautiful desserts. They were very attentive throughout making sure we all had drinks. Thanks of course to Chef also whose food got lots of compliments from our 15 guests and thank you also for cutting and wrapping up the cake for our guests to take home. Lovely food in the shop. I can recommend the Black Bomber cheese! We will be back for more! Food and cheese! x
