This splendid building, elm framed, proud but friendly, owes its survival to our Wedding guests, for without extensive restoration six years ago it would surely have collapsed. The new plinth, the pillars for the six venerable main beams and the bar are built with old hand made bricks recovered from the floor. Dating we believe from Tudor times, it should now have another lease of hundreds of years life ahead.
The Barn, measuring 60 foot by 30, with four bays, makes a grand and impressive setting for the Wedding Ceremony and is licensed for 180. For the Wedding Breakfast it provides formal seating for 140 and for a party 250.
Table plans are quite flexible. Brides often choose an oval top table, so much friendlier than a traditional banqueting table. Up to 100 guests can sit at round tables of 6, 8, 10 or 12. Above that number banqueting tables fill the aisles with round tables down the centre.
The heart of the site
The Barn forms the core of South Farmís many and varied entertaining spaces. It is always gratifying for us to hear the intake of breath when newcomers first enter. It never fails to impress, whether dressed with abundant flowers or simply speaking for itself.
Our state of the art banqueting kitchens abut the end gable. The kitchens are the very first in the county to achieve the coveted Elite Status for consecutively achieving a Food Hygiene Rating of Five Stars from Scores on the Doors. They also facilitate exceptional service timed to perfection and we are justly proud of our outstanding wedding menus.
