A lovingly restored traditional Essex barn hosting memorable wedding ceremonies and receptions in the beautiful surroundings of the Colne Valley.


The Venue

The Barn is a Grade II listed, 16th Century farm building. It has been lovingly restored into a beautiful restaurant and wedding venue that is full of character. The Barn Brasserie is an elegant and intimate spot to host a ceremony on the upstairs gallery followed by a top quality, award winning meal in the sophisticated restaurant. This venue offers an astounding romantic setting in a serene country retreat away from the busy town centre, whilst being just a few miles from local transport links.

The Grounds

The Brasserie boasts an enclosed courtyard ideal for hosting guests arrival/reception drinks in the summer months. Newly-weds can take advantage of the surroundings for their photographs, including large, open fields and sheltered wooded areas.  There is also a large car park for you and your guests to use free of charge. 

The People

One of the core principles of the Barn Brasserie is their guaranteed top-quality service. We’ve met many members of staff at The Barn and we’re sure you will experience very helpful assistance from everyone you meet. The hosts are professional and friendly and their dedicated wedding planners guide you through the planning and preparations to the execution of your wedding arrangements. 

The Verdict

We recommend the Barn Brasserie for couples who wish to have an intimate wedding with up to 60 guests. The services offered make guests feel welcome and the meals served are exquisite. The venue is very accommodating and there is flexibility in how you use the space – they can accommodate for those who require very little to those that would like a full-service package.
