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.

Incredible 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.
