Perfect wedding day! Philippe and Janet were fantastic right from initial enquiries, viewing the venue to planning our wedding (on such a short timescale!) They were always on hand to answer any queries and put our minds at rest. It was a very stress free experience. The venue was perfect for us and was made even more so with the setting out of our decorations which was done beautifully. Staff where all attentive and friendly and the food was delicious. Not to mention all the little touches they and their staff provided that made it that little bit more personal from helping unload the car when dropping off the day before, moving centre pieces from upstairs to downstairs after the meal, giving us left over bottles of wine to take away to reloading the car when we came to pick it all up! The day was perfect, we want to do it all again and we would 100% recommend it to anyone looking for a more personal venue! Huge thanks again.

Good Evening Janet, We have only just managed to take a moment to reflect on our day, as it passed by so quickly, and we wanted to send over a message of thanks.Chris and myself could not thank you enough, from the very beginning when we were looking to view The Barn right up until the day after you were all so wonderful. You made our day possible, you have been so very helpful with all of our enquiries, millions of questions and plans for the day as was Phillipe during our meetings prior to the big day! Philippe and his team truly made the whole of The Barn look spectacular, making my vision of ‘the perfect venue’ into a reality, it actually exceeded all expectations (apologies to them for having to unpack boxes and boxes of decor) and our guests were blown away with how beautiful the ceremony and reception rooms looked. Now for the food… what can I say?! To start, our guests were astounded at the ability to choose their own food prior to the day and then even more so when we mentioned that we had such a wide and varied choice to narrow it down from. When the food came out everyone was pleased with their choices, all of the food looked delicious and it came out hot and perfectly cooked. Many guests mentioned how they enjoyed the fact they received a ‘proper meal’ unlike most weddings that they had been to before (and we were extremely grateful for our surprise ‘three for me’ puddings too, our favourite!) Although we were too busy dancing to eat much buffet food in the evening the spread looked wonderful and it was great to have been saved a plate by the kitchen to take home at the end of the night, what a lovey touch! We would like to thank Philippe and all of the staff at The Barn for their service on the day, they really did go the extra mile to ensure it all ran smoothly and that we had the perfect day. Phillipe was so organised and helpful throughout and we even got chaperoned to Calverley park by Paul, armed with umbrellas, and showing us all of the best spots for photos. It truly was the most wonderful day, made even more so by friendly, funny and extremely helpful members of the team. Our parents and grandparents have all said how The Barn did us extremely proud, the highest of compliments, and we couldn’t have wished for a better day. Again, thank you so so much for making our day what it was. Beyond expectations, extremely special and so unique. All our love, Mr & Mrs Morgan. xx
Our wedding. We had our wedding at The Barn on 25.8.19 and it was a fantastic day! Philippe, 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 🙂

Dear Janet, Philippe and everyone at The Barn, Thank you for hosting our wedding, Neil and I had the most wonderful day. It was relaxed, informal and everything we hoped it would be. Your attention to detail was amazing and very reassuring in the weeks and days leading up to the wedding. The Barn looked beautiful on the day and our guests were taken care of from the moment they arrived until the last person left. The food was very good and people appreciated that they had a choice of menu options. When I arrived and I went upstairs to talk to the Registrars, the noise from the bar below was incredible. I could hear the sounds of conversation and laughter as friends and family came together and I knew the day was off to a good start. Thanks again for making our wedding day so special. Love, Vicky and Neil
Wedding September 2019 – Email thank you
Dear Philippe and Jan, Graeme and I would like to say such a huge thank you for hosting our wedding! We couldn’t have asked for more that day, the Barn is such a cosy place and the gardens are beautiful. It was decorated just how I had asked and every single person who attended has said it was such a perfect day! A lot of this praise must go to you and Jan for always being at the end of email queries, for helping us to organise the wedding breakfast menus and Philippe, for being present throughout the whole day, which was very reassuring Everyone also said how nice the food was, the rack of lamb was very impressive! The wine flowed, the non-drinkers catered for well and the upstairs restaurant was laid out so thoughtfully it was just such a lovely place to be. It was important to me, to replace the large rose print too – so thank you so much for helping us to put something else in place. The other staff were very organised when we arrived with things the day before and throughout our day too. Philippe – the flowers looked beautiful in jars and we thank you for this initial idea, as we didn’t really know where to start with doing our own flowers. Although the credit and love goes to my mum for this one! (Absolutely brilliant mum, love you!!!) Katy and Graeme
Wedding September 2019 – Email thank you
Wedding September 2019. We got married at The Barn yesterday and we cannot thank Phillipe, Janet and their team enough for such an amazing day! The entire day ran so smoothly without any hitches. The food was fantastic and all of our guests commented on how lovely it was. Our cheese tower was amazing! We were also given the remainder of the bottles of wine and Port that were left over to take home. A perfect venue for a personal intimate wedding and all our guests loved it. Luke the DJ was brilliant too! Had everyone on the dance floor literally all night! Some aching legs today! Cannot thank you enough for a wonderful perfect wedding day!

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.

Wedding Breakfast. Wedding Breakfast for my son and his new wife and 15 guests – everything was perfect, beautifully set and decorated table, excellent food and wonderful service from Philippe and Milo. Evening buffet and bar service also very good. Would definitely recommend.
TripAdvisor – August 2019
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!

Our Wedding Day – 7.7.19. Hi Philippe and Janet, 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!! Thank you again!
Kirsty & Stephen Farrow – July 2019
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 lovely lady behind the emails! Thank you so much for answering my 1000s of questions and making me feel like nothing was too 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

Dear Janet, Philippe and all of the team at The Barn. A week on from the excitement of last weekend, 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 last weekend. 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
Joanna and Ben Croucher – June 2019
We have used The Barn as our wedding venue and words won’t do the hardworking and friendly staff justice. they have been absolutely fab. Kitchen staff has been amazing in accommodating quite strict dietary requests. Food was amazing and drinks kept coming … what more do you need? Thank you for making us feel welcomed and for keeping us happy throughout the day and evening.

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.

Wedding 6th May 2019. 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 seemlessly 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
Sadie and Alex Gowar – May 2019
The Barn hosted our wedding on 28 April 2019. 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.

Wedding venue. From the moment we stepped into The Barn we knew this was the venue for our wedding day. Janet and Philippe were so warm and welcoming and spoke so highly of their tight nit team, it had a real sense of family around it. Janet was amazing from start to finish answering my many many emails no matter how trivial be it day or night. Milo was brilliant throughout the day and really put us at ease when we dropped our decorations off the day before. We knew we were leaving everything in good hands and felt our anxiety turn to excitement for the next day.Thank you all so much for your hard work. All our guests have commented on what a stunning Venue it is and how delicious the food was. We couldn’t have asked for a better day and we look forward to seeing you for our complimentary first anniversary meal!! (Such a lovely extra touch)

Everything absolutely everything downstairs was perfect from beginning to end- the staff were amazing. With heart felt thanks

Tom and Mirna’s Wedding – Sunday 17th February. Dear Janet, we thanked Philippe and the team on the Day and when we went in on the Monday, but in the rush I don’t think we thanked you. On behalf of us all, I just wanted to say a very sincere thank you for all the excellent work you put in to ensure that Tom and Mirna’s big day went so well. It was great to be dealing with someone who was so on top of the detail and could help us make the best decisions. Mirna, Tom and all our family and friends had a wonderful time and many guests made a point of saying how much they liked the venue, staff and food.So, thank you again for all your help, patience and good advice. We would thoroughly recommend The Barn as an excellent venue for a Wedding or other social event.Regards and Best Wishes from us All,

The world’s best wedding venue! So I’m not even sure where to begin leaving this review. From start to finish Philippe, Janet and all the team were absolutely incredible. They couldn’t have been more accommodating to us and our somewhat out there ideas! Nothing was too big or too small; from singing waiters, fave painters and crisp sandwich buffets. They handled the day amazing, all the intricate details. We didn’t have to worry about a thing; which was perfect with being 4 months pregnant and being sick. The food was perfect, the staff on the day perfect, just all round PERFECT. I could so get married all over again just to have it at The Barn! So from us, the biggest and best thank you! You made our day.

Bonjour . We just wanted to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for our wedding venue. Everything was wonderful, perfect. All the staff are so friendly too, and of course your husband. It was so relaxed all the guests loved your restaurant, and the fact that we had half the garden was so good as well. And thank you Janet for doing all the work behind the scenes. Anyway, I will always recommend your restaurant to everybody. As for me I will be back anyway for the odd weekend lunch.

Wedding 10th June 2018. I attended a magical wedding here last week. The venue looked absolutely stunning, the food delicious and plentiful, a well stocked bar and great space for dancing with an amazing DJ. The pretty garden was well used especially on arrival and for the evening bbq. The Barn was clean and smelt fresh. However what really shines through is the staff. They really make you feel like everybody matters. They work effortlessly together with such ease and enthusiasm, it makes this place rather special. I shall look forward to returning here
TripAdvisor – June 2018
EXCEPTIONAL WEDDING VENUE. We got married at the local registry office, walked through the park and had our sit down meal & wedding reception at The Barn on 20th May 2018. Janet from day 1 was the most helpful, informative and efficient person I’ve ever emailed and spoken to. She responded so quickly to every single detail of the many emails I sent her in the months before the wedding. Nothing was too much for her and she never once made me feel like a pest (I emailed a lot!)… and Philippe, well where do we start! He is the nicest, most passionate, honest and enthusiastic man we’ve ever met! He goes above and beyond for his wedding guests. When we dropped our wedding decorations off the day before we ran through very briefly how we wanted things (we were more laid back than you can imagine!) and he took in every detail of what we said and made it 1000x better!! We couldn’t actually believe our eyes, that our “lazy planning” was made into something so spectacularly beautiful by Philippe!! The entire team at The Barn ensured us and our guests were looked after all day and night! Always smiling and happy. DJ Luke Swift also did a smashing job with all my music requests (very fussy bride when it came to the playlist!). The food was amazing with very generous portions! As a venue, The Barn is the most honest business we have come across. There are NO hidden charges, it’s all set out for you easily, they actively encourage what they think will suit you best and not in the direction of higher prices but actually to save you money if they think they can! This is what we think sets The Barn above any other wedding venue, you really don’t feel like you are being tricked into spending more money. Post wedding we even got back absolutely everything! Including left over wine from our meal and cheese from our cheese tower!! We couldn’t believe that! Thank you is not enough for them as a team! We couldn’t have been happier! You made our day exceptional, so much more perfect than we could ever have hoped for. We thought when married couples described their wedding day as perfect, it is just a figure of speech, but our day actually was perfect, thanks to The Barn. All our love and appreciation, Mr & Mrs Gardiner
TripAdvisor – June 2018
Philippe and Janet, we are just packing for our holiday to Norway and we have been chatting about our wonderful wedding day last Sunday. We have lots of magical memories of the day. This was all made possible by the smooth operation at ‘The Barn’, The staff, the food, the preparation, the attention to detail, the ‘seamless’ delivery of the food and drink and, of course, how you managed to remove the rain and obtain the sun is a mystery to us. Philippe/Janet, we want to thank you for making our day perfect. For everything you did for us – it was truly amazing. We were inundated by our guests saying what an unbelievable venue we were in and they all wanted to say a big ‘Thank You’ to you and your staff – and they truly deserve it. It goes without saying that we will be recommending ‘The Barn’ as the perfect venue for weddings. Kind regards,
Malc and Gill – May 2018
To Janet, Philippe and The Team…….. I really don’t know where to start, nothing i write will do The Barn as much justice as you deserve. We had the most Amazing, relaxed Wedding, it was more then we had ever expected. It was truly magical and a day we will never forget. The Barn is a Hidden Gem, that I found some time ago whilst working in Tunbridge Wells and my heart was set on getting Married there from day one. Being a very nervous bride from Day one, Janet and Philippe have been full of reassurance and much needed advice, I really don’t know why I was worrying so much. Communication has been fantastic. The staff also went above and beyond on the day, they were fantastic with the children and all the guests have said how friendly and welcoming they were. The food was outstanding, delicious and cooked to perfection. The portion size was also very generous. The wine chosen also complemented the food. The resident DJ Luke had everyone up dancing, which was a hard job due to the weather being so good, most people were outside. He also helped us with a few surprises we had planned. Nothing was too much for him. In the last few days I have bumped into a few of our guest and they have had nothing but praise ” Wow, what a beautiful venue, we didn’t know it existed. It was one of the most relaxed weddings we have ever been to and the best. We loved that during the ceremony we had a choice to sit outside but still see/ hear what was going on. It was the most perfect day. We are already talking about going back there for a meal soon. Thank you for letting us be part of your special day “. So I thank you all from the bottom of my heart for making our day so special, taking the stress away from me , making us all feel so welcome, decorating The Barn to such a high standard, wonderful food, a relaxed atmosphere and having such a wonderful team who I’m actually missing being around. Thank you soooooo much again. Aidan I still have not worked out where we know each other from. Matt Tuesday nights. cocktail nights ! Hope to see you all again soon. Love
Gemma & Paul – May 2018
The Barn is the most wonderful wedding venue, we got married in May 2018 and Janet, Philippe and all of the staff at The Barn worked tirelessly to make sure we had the most amazing day. The food, drinks and service at The Barn are amazing and every detail is covered. Janet and Philippe ensure that all the fine points have been thought of and nothing is too much trouble. All of our guests adored the venue and how special and intimate it is, they also said it was the best wedding food they had ever had!
Mr & Mrs Terry – May 2018
Wedding Venue April 2018. My husband and I got married at the Barn on Sunday 8 of April; Philippe and the staff pulled out all the stops to ensure that everything ran smoothly and flawlessly. You really can see why they are an award winning venue, nothing was too much trouble and they supported us every step of the way. The venue dressing, wedding breakfast and staff service meant that many of my guests told me that it was the one of the most enjoyable weddings they had ever been to. They made our fairytale wedding stress free and it was an absolute pleasure planning our wedding with them over the past year. They really deserve the highest accolade, I could not recommend them more. xx
TripAdvisor – April 2018
The best wedding we could have dreamt of. Wow… where to begin?! We got married at The Barn on 25th March 2018. I suppose we were a bit unusual as we didn’t look at any other venues other than The Barn when we got engaged. It has been my local pub for 6 years now, and when I introduced Nick to the Barn he also fell in love with it. We knew it would be the perfect place for us to get married when the day came. Nick was so keen to book that he proposed to me early just so he could get a date booked asap! Philippe and Janet were on hand to answer our many questions and where so fantastic at helping us to plan everything out in the coming months. They made everything so simple. The day itself was incredible… We could not have asked for anything more… Our decorations looked spectacular, Philippe did an amazing job laying out everything… It looked better than we could have imagined… It was magical! The venue really shines out in every one of our photos. The service in the conservatory was so intimate and beautiful. Everyone said it was a wonderful ceremony and we feel a lot of that was due to the intimacy of the venue as well as the amazing job of the registrars! The staff behind the bar and in the kitchen were brilliant. We had so many compliments on the service and the food. Everyone meals came out hot and as ordered… And the food is always tasty at The Barn… So much so that my mum always insists we go to the barn for lunch when she visits. The day ran so smoothly. We both spent the entire day with massive grins on our faces and most of that was because we could relax entirely, knowing that everything was in hand! We cannot thank everyone at the Barn enough for putting the ‘special’ into our special day! Jess and Nick Royle

Janet and Philippe and all of your wonderful staff, thank you so much for a seamless and stress free experience on our wedding day. We had the best day from start to end. The organisation was amazing and Janet was always on hand to answer my questions, however ridiculous they were. The Barn looked absolutely beautiful and was perfect for our intimate wedding. Our guests were very complimentary about the delicious food and the fantastic service. DJ Luke kept me on the dance floor all night. We just couldn’t have asked for a better day, we are so grateful to you and the wonderful job you did. Thank you so much.

My husband and I got married at the Barn on Sunday 8 of April; Philippe and the staff pulled out all the stops to ensure that everything ran smoothly and flawlessly. You really can see why they are an award winning venue, nothing was too much trouble and they supported us every step of the way. The venue dressing, wedding breakfast and staff service meant that many of my guests told me that it was the one of the most enjoyable weddings they had ever been to. They made our fairytale wedding stress free and it was an absolute pleasure planning our wedding with them over the past year. They really deserve the highest accolade, I could not recommend them more. Xx

Perfect Wedding Venue!!! I have been trying for the past 3 weeks to write a review that does the Barn justice. I’m not sure that any words can quite describe just how perfect our wedding day was. The Barn was the 1st place James and I looked at before he even proposed and it is always a worry that a place will not live up to expectations. This couldn’t be further from the case for The Barn! Philippe and Janet made us feel so welcome from the moment we enquired about the venue right through to the day itself and within moments of seeing the venue there was not a single doubt in our mind that this was the place for us. They were more than happy to book us in 3 days before Christmas and being such a stressful time of year under normal circumstances it was such a relief to be at a venue where there was such professionalism as well as a real care for us and making us feel like the only couple that had ever got married there. I remember the weekend of the wedding handing all of the bits for tables and decorating and wedding favours to Philippe as well as sweets for our retro sweet table and trying to go into great detail about where things needed to go and what needed to be done and he very calmly said ‘OK I’ve got it, see you on Sunday’. With the absolute professionalism that we were shown from the minute we booked our wedding I arrived on the day and everything was set up perfectly to the last little detail. From the ceremony, the beautiful Christmas decorations and hundreds of fairy lights to the the winter themed drinks and amazing food the day could not have gone any better and the small details (that not even I had thought of!) were a lovely surprise for me! The children were treated to a little glass of sweets to toast the bride and groom with which was such a lovely touch! My family and friends have not stopped saying what a fantastic day it was and such a massive part of this is down to Philippe, Janet and all of the staff at The Barn. We cannot thank them enough for making our day every bit of the dream wedding we could only have hoped it would be! To everyone who has asked how good our wedding was our reply is ‘You know it’s been an absolutely brilliant wedding when at the end the bride is on the floor doing air guitar’!! Thank you so much to the barn for a flawless, beautiful day, outstanding food and the patience of dealing with an extremely over excited and energetic bride!!
David and I would really like to say how very appreciative we are for all you did to make Rachel and Pradeep’s celebrations so special. We can’t believe how fortunate we were to find The Barn. We knew straight away on our first visit when we met Philippe that this was the perfect place and that Rachel and Pradeep would instantly love it too. (Up to this point we were a little apprehensive about the responsibility of choosing a wedding venue that they wouldn’t see until two weeks before the ceremony.) From then on you took all the responsibility off our shoulders while keeping in close touch with both ourselves and Rachel and Pradeep, offering options and suggestions that helped them to make informed choices and decisions and personalise their day. We couldn’t possibly have wished for such thoughtful, accommodating and supportive service.The day lived up to, and in fact exceeded, expectations. Every area looked wonderful; a warm conservatory ready for the ceremony with sparkling white chair covers and colour co-ordinated bows, comfortable and inviting bar to welcome guests and the most characterful, beautifully presented wedding breakfast room with crisp linen, immaculate tableware and all the flowers, table decorations and individual menus set out. Philippe, thank you too for all the magical fairy lights and decorations that you put up which so added to the whole ambiance. (We have some great photos showing just how lovely everything looked If you would like us to send any over.) The ceremony was special and the celebrant you recommended was perfect. It was so thoughtful of you to suggest and help set up a skype link so that Pradeep’s family in India could share this time with us. All the food was absolutely delicious – lots of guests commented that it was the best wedding meal they had ever had – and the service was excellent. The kitchen team did a fantastic job at producing such a choice of dishes and juggling timings to allow us flexibility. And while we were relaxing over a scrummy meal, downstairs was rapidly but discreetly being converted for the evening’s entertainment! The disco you organised was great as was the evening buffet and the bar staff were exceptionally friendly and efficient. Everyone had a really fun time; lots of dancing, drinking and catching up. The day whizzed very enjoyably and at the end of the evening all our stuff had been carefully packed awaiting collection the next morning. Please thank all your staff for us – they were amazing! Most of all though, thank you both for all your help and thoughtfulness in ensuring Rachel and Pradeep had such a wonderful time celebrating their marriage with all their closest friends and family. It was special for all of us but I think most importantly, to quote our daughter, “It was the best day of my life!” With much gratitude

We would like to thank you both and your team for helping make our wedding day as special as we hoped it would be. From the first day we met you, we felt at complete ease as we knew immediately that you would take care of everything and provide the experience that you promised.
With regards to our wedding day, we received nothing but compliments from all of our guests about the quality of the food and the beautiful venue. Your staff on the day were incredibly attentive and professional and nothing was too much trouble. Once again thank you so much for everything, look forward to seeing you again. Kindest regards.

Absolutely OUTSTANDING Wedding Venue!! Thank you so much Philippe, Janet and all your most wonderful happy smiley staff on our Wedding day on 14th Jan 2018. We and all our guests had the most truly amazing day and every single one of our wedding photos we have just had back shows every one smiling in every single photo – a true testament to how much everyone enjoyed the day! We have since received so many wonderful comments and texts saying what a wonderful day everyone had and raving about the beautiful food and portion sizes – food came out on time to all our guests and was hot/perfection! We had given Philippe our chosen decorations the night before and we were both absolutely blown away at how gorgeous the entire barn looked for the day and, once again, had so many wonderful comments from guests saying what a perfect/romantic and intimate wedding venue it was. DJ Phil (part of the Barn team) was fabulous and was so much fun and, at no point, was the dance floor empty – good time had by all and fabulous photos of the memories. We would, without any hesitation whatsoever, recommend The Barn to any future Brides and Grooms and cannot fault any of the day as it ran absolutely effortlessly thanks to Philippe and the team who we cannot thank enough again. Absolutely 10/10 and truly wonderful day and wish we could do it all again! Thank you all again for such a perfect day!!

The Barn was the perfect place to have our wedding venue. All our guests loved the layout of the venue. I thought the layout was perfect for how many people we had, we had 68 people for the day and an extra 15/20 for the evening. I loved that it felt close and intimate. Philippe and Janet are amazing at what they do! They make everything so easy for you, the communication is fantastic they are always quick to email back but also to email you before different parts of the organising so you are always ahead. Philippe and Janet make you feel like nothing is too much trouble, you can ask any questions and don’t feel silly. They are passionate, helpful, kind, cooperative and perfect. If you want a wedding that is full of love and ease, this is the place to be! Thank you for helping to make our special day so relaxed and perfect.

Attended a wedding. Wow what Can I say! We attended our friends wedding on Sunday at the Barn and it was amazing. The venue looked lovely and was so cosy, fantastic setting for wedding. The sit down meal was beautiful…. food was very tasty and well presented. Great menu choice to! Nothing was to much trouble for the staff either… Would highly recommend this venue for any occasion will certainly be visiting again.

Hi Janet, I wanted to say a huge thank you to you and Philippe, from myself and Alastair for making our Wedding day so special. Everything ran so smoothly and the restaurant was decorated so well it looked perfect. I loved the touches Philippe made and the way the team decorated was better than I could have hoped for. We both had a perfect Wedding day and couldn’t be happier with how it all went. Thank you so much for doing all the decorating and for the amazing food and drink. We have had lots of guests comments on the delicious food. Thank you again.

They put up all of our decorations, much better than I could have. The food was delicious. Everything ran smoothly and we had the perfect Wedding day! I would highly recommend having your Wedding here.

Best Wedding venue in Kent! We got married at The Barn and our experience in planning, setup and on the day couldn’t have gone better. The owners, Philippe and his wife, run the place with utmost care and affection. They helped us through the planning process and were essential to the success of our big day. Thank you!!!! The Barn is such a great place because of the way they use the space, it feels comfortable, charming and practical. As the day turns into night, and the garden lights up, it’s a really beautiful place to spend a day. Food was wonderful, served hot and freshly made! Drinks were high quality, and super impressed by the delicious ale choices. Additionally all their staff were brilliant and really went above and beyond the call of duty! Like the barman who put the bubble machine on the roof so bubbles would be in the group photos! But especially Lauren who helped with the setup and running on the day. She was outstanding and made it run so smoothly.

We had our wedding here on the 24th September 2017. Have got to say we had the most amazing day, the whole team must have worked so hard to set everything up just as we envisioned. Philippe and Janet cantered to everything we asked and didn’t mind answering our endless questions. The venue allows you to have such an intimate and personal wedding. We really could not have asked for a better day, thank you so much for everything the whole team did to help create it. We will be back for visits.

It has been a long time coming. Myself and my husband got married in May and it has taken us a while to finally get sorted after the wedding. The Barn was absolutely incredible prior and on the day. All the staff were amazing, everything was so easy for us we literally told Philippe what we wanted and he made it come true. Because of how professional the staff were we got to enjoy our special day with ease. I would 110% recommend the barn for weddings. Thank you so much.

Wedding Thank You. I’m finding it really difficult to write this email because there are no words to express how happy we are that we picked you as our Wedding venue. I actually started researching venues before we were officially engaged (that makes me sound like a bit bridezilla but the ring had been made, so I knew a proposal was coming soon!) and when I came across The Barn, I just has this feeling that it was The One. After reading numerous excellent reviews online (and finally getting engaged!), we arranged a viewing straight away…and I fell in love instantly! The Barn was exactly what we wanted – intimate, pretty and relaxed. The fact that the price is amazing was just an added bonus! Everything, from our very first enquiry to the Wedding day, was so easy. You were always on hand to answer my questions (however stupid they were!) and I was so grateful and totally trusted your help and tips! I had a few ideas of of how I wanted to decorate the venue but I’m not very visual, so I wasn’t sure exactly how I wanted it all laid out. I was blown away when I arrived at the venue on our Wedding Day – it looked beautiful!! I was over the moon. The food was gorgeous – all of our guests commented on how lovely it was and I was so pleased everyone could chose their own meal. You also catered for my vegan and celiac guests with no drama! Philippe being there throughout the day made me feel really calm and at easy, I knew I was in safe hands!! The rest of the team at The Barn were so friendly and professional – you should be really proud! Thank you so much to everyone at The Barn, but especially to you two. Thank you for hosting the happiest day of our lives. The Barn will always be a very special place to us. Thank you!

We had our wedding here on Saturday and I have to say it was such a wonderful day and evening. Janet and Philippe looked after us every step of the way from the moment we booked our wedding last year. Janet was always there to answer any questions by email and Philippe and the rest of the staff made it a fantastic day with all the setting up before hand and making it look so beautiful and then looking after us so well throughout the day. We could not have asked for more. I would say to anyone considering The Barn for their wedding to go ahead and get booked in as you will not have a better day anywhere else. All that’s left to say is a huge thank you to all involved in making it the happiest day for us.

We had our wedding here on the 13th August and had the most amazing day. Philippe, Janet and all the staff were amazing they took care of all those small things that take away any stress and worry and made the day flow perfectly. The food was amazing and far exceeded guests expectations and still is one of the main comments we get when meeting friends especially those still day dreaming over the lamb. We cannot thank the staff enough and would highly recommend the venue to anyone! Thank you so much, we will let you know where we end up on our honeymoon:-)!

Philippe from the first time I met him he had a warming presence and straight away made me feel comfortable and calm, every time we had a question he was always there to assist and nothing was too much trouble for him. The barn staff was amazing from start to finish and were attentive and very friendly. Also Jan was also Amazing with replying back to emails even late at night always attentive and very helpful. We had a magical day and would love to do it again and if we did we wouldn’t of changed a thing. So a huge thank you from us.

Russell and I got married at The Barn on the 23rd July this year (2017), and we were both so overwhelmed at how wonderful the day was and how smoothly everything went. This lovely little personal and intimate venue have their wedding organisation down to a tea! We didn’t look at any other venues than this one as we knew we wanted small, intimate and personal for our special day, and having had a search on the internet we found this little gem! We went for a lovely little meal here one night to see what it was like and we immediately knew this was our special place, and right from when we booked our wedding a year and a half in advance, both Philippe and Janet were just so helpful and welcoming and made the whole organising process of the wedding so relaxed and easy. Janet was so helpful with all of the administration bits and bobs and I feel I must have asked some silly questions at points leading up to the wedding, but Janet was only too happy to help and answer all my queries. And Philippe and all his staff leading up to, and on the day were little stars! We dropped off a box of decorations the evening before the wedding and Philippe took them and made them look even better than we’d imagined within the setting! You can tell that he is passionate about making sure that his guests wedding days are as perfect as they imagine them to be, and making sure everything goes as perfectly as it can. So many of our guests commented on how beautiful this little venue is, and how the service and food were fab too! Everyone enjoyed their 3 course meals and the evening Buffett too! My mum has a lactose intolerance and they catered for her needs very well and she really enjoyed her food. This is such a lovely little place that Russ and I will hold in our hearts forever and that we will continue to visit for a lovely meal from time to time, now with the added wonderful memories from our day. We would just like to take this opportunity to thank Philippe and Janet, and all of their team at The Barn from the bottom of our hearts for all that they did for us on the 23rd July!
