Food, Drink & Catering

When you hire our venue you have complete freedom of choice of food and drink for your guests.

We do not insist that you must have set menus only, nor do we insist on our choice of wines, and we have NO corkage charges !

Simply put we allow you to source your own caterers for you to book directly.

We do have a fantastic Bar which can cater for your evey needs.

You chose

Unlike hotel venues and other barn wedding venues who impose their rather limited menu options at high prices at the Haybarn we  believe that you should have the freedom to customise your catering in every aspect at a budget that is right for you.

 

Our Suggested Caterer

Most all of our couples opt for informal meals or street food when booking our barn or an outdoor wedding in a tipi.  If your preference is more formal when it a full service is also available.  The choice is yours.

Regardless of your preference, you have the opportunity to offer your guests a wide range of delicious food by selecting one of many wedding breakfast options provided by our suggested caterer “The Sticky Fig Catering co.

Alternatives ? - Own Caterer ?

The Sticky fig is very popular ! and gets booked sometimes years ahead .
If you prefer a caterer of your own choosing, this is fine too!

Be sure who you opt for in the end offers a quality service and are fully equipped for mobile catering. It is also worth asking your selected caterers that they do not have any corking charges
or ask then if they can serve the wine.

The choice is yours.

If you do opt for a caterer of your own, be sure that whoever you chose is professional, with a good track record, hygiene standard etc.. Why not ask for a sample tasting menu, as food is always going to be a talking point of your wedding with your guests.

No corkage

You will have seen this charge at hotels or many other barn venues. This is when a venue imposes a fee for each bottle opened if you bring your own drinks to cover the lost revenue from not selling the drink to you in the first place.

Each bottle opened at such venues can be costly and quickly adds up to a tidy sum of money with corkage often costing £5 to £10 per bottle of wine that is opened on site, more for Champagne or Prosecco. In some parts of England we have seen some places charge as much as £15 a bottle !  We have NO corkage charges, however you will need to discuss your ideas with our Bar if you wish to offer some drinks for your guests during the wedding breakfast etc..
