Perfect spot
We’ve just had our wedding at the chilli barn. We couldn’t have imagined it at a better venue! The venue and its surroundings was the perfect spot for us to create our special day! The food went down an absolute storm, it was fantastic!

All the staff at the chilli barn were outstanding! They couldn’t have done any more for us, whatever it was that we needed they made it happen! Thank you so so much!

We got married at the chilli barn on 20th July 2019. We fell in love with the barn the second we viewed it 8 months prior to getting married and knew it was the only place we could tie the knot! It’s so beautiful and cosy. I can’t recommend the venue enough and the staff on the day ensured it ran so smoothly and relaxed. We couldn’t have wished for a more stunning venue or staff team to be involved on our day. And so reasonably priced too! Thank you all so much! xx (Dog friendly too!!)

We were so lucky to find the Chilli Barn for our wedding in June this year. It had everything we were looking for - a rustic barn in a countryside setting with some fab surrounding views which were great for photos! Unlike other venues we looked at, this one had enough space to accommodate our guests but still provided an intimate feel and kept everyone together! The food was delicious and the hay bales and fire pit outside was a lovely touch! All the staff did and amazing job keeping the day running smoothly from start to finish! Couldn’t recommend it more highly!

We recently had our wedding reception at the awesome Chilli Barn. Everything about the day was absolutely perfect- in fact perfect was the word of the weekend- it was everything we wanted and more. The CB team made sure the day was seamless and certainly exceeded our expectations. All of our guests kept saying the venue was amazing and were also blown away by the food- “you don’t need meat when it’s that good!” . Thank you so much!

Thanks so much Liz for your review.

Amazing venue, food, location!!!
We got married there in May and we had a fabulous experience. We felt very supported from the initial booking meeting with Bex till collecting our stuff the day after the wedding.

I can't thank enough all the staff helping us to make this day run so smoothly.

Chilli barn offers unbelievable (!!!) tasty food, great service and they are very understanding and accommodating every sort of newlyweds requirements ;)

We asked for 100% vegan catering and what we got blown us and our guests away - we have received so many compliments about the food, we wereso pleasantly surprised as we didn't have a chance to taste anything before!

We loved the authenticity of the barn, the location (fields and cows), beautiful scenery around and the barn itself.

Everything about the barn is top quality:
- Food
- Furniture
- Views
- Customer service

Thank you so much for helping us making this day so special for us and our guests.

Thank you SO MUCH for helping make it the best day
Chilli Barn was the perfect venue for our summer wedding! We enjoyed Pimms and games, and sat around the fires on hay bales late into the evening. The views and the setting were just dreamy!! And the food was wonderful. All our guests were won over by vegetarian cuisine!!
Bex and the whole team were an absolute joy to work with in the run up and the staff were totally amazing on the day. Everything ran so smoothly and our guests mentioned how seamless the day was. Thank you SO MUCH for helping make it the best day ever!

The Chilli Barn really was the perfect venue for us. With us living just down the road and wanting a local wedding we feel very lucky that a venue so close ticked all the boxes. I loved that you could make it look exactly how you wanted it to with lots of options for how we wanted the day to go. The food was fantastic and so nice to not have vegetarian food as an after thought. The hay bales and fire pit in the evening were a lovely touch and all of our guests commented on it being a beautiful place. The staff at the Chilli Barn on the day were incredible, so friendly and efficient. A big thank you to Bex too for all the emails in the lead up to the big day. We had the most incredible day.

We recently had our wedding at the Chilli Barn this Easter Sunday 2019. Bex the wedding coordinator instantly made us feel at ease and did an amazing job. We arranged our wedding from over seas and the Chilli Barn team accommodated our every need making us feel like everything was under control at all times. The venue is just beautiful and lends itself to any decoration you want to have, traditional or modern. Heather kindly did everything to help us set up and make our vision a reality the day prior and it looked stunning. Although the majority of our family isn't vegetarian they thoroughly enjoyed the food. It was delicious and there was plenty. The drink packages are great value and the bar is very reasonable for a wedding venue, stocking everything you could possibly think of. Our wedding day was the most perfect day and we will always look back with a smile. We truly feel we picked the perfect venue. The Chilli Barn is a gem right in the heart of yorkshie. Thank you Chilli Barn Team !
