Full Description
Chilli Barn is about ten miles north of Leeds and there is a wide choice of accommodation locally. Converted in 2014, Chilli Barn combines the charm and character of its rural past with a touch of glamour and modernity. The old wagon door, now glazed, opens out to the lawn and meadow. We offer two day weddings with access the day before to allow you to dress the Barn and surroundings to your taste, the barn from your ceremony time on the day of your wedding and a sit down wedding breakfast. We can also offer one day packages for an couples who want a relaxed, late afternoon ceremony with on the day set up. We will work closely with you well in advance to develop a plan to make Chilli Barn the ideal place for your magical wedding. All our food is freshly cooked on site and can be served either to table or more informally as a buffet. We have recently created a new vegetarian menu which combines British and international influences and offers a wide range of choices to suit your taste. The ceremony capacity at Chilli Barn is 60 with an evening party capacity of 100. The space can be enhanced with an attached marquee or outdoor structure. The bar offers a wide range of wines, beers and spirits, many of which are organic, vegetarian and local. You can source your complimentary drinks from our list at a discount or supply your own (there is a service charge for this). We can also serve a barrel of your favourite real ale from local breweries.

Dream Day
The Chilli Barn is a fantastic place for anyone having their dream day! The barn and outdoor areas are a beautiful blank canvas for you to make your day exactly how you want it! The team worked with us every step of the way to change and adapt our plans as necessary given what has been going on this year. Despite all of this we still had our perfect day and all our guests loved our wedding and had a great time. With the new restrictions on weddings and the limited number of guests allowed the Chilli Barn is a perfect venue for intimate weddings. A big thank you to all of the team at Chilli Barn.
