Attended our friends wedding last Friday. Beautiful venue, good food and we were well looked after by the staff. I liked the layout - means that old gits like myself who don't appreciate the music as much as the youngsters can enjoy a sociable time without having to shout to be heard :-) The grounds were lovely - as the day was sunny we could enjoy pre-dinner drinks outside. Thanks for help make the whole day a brilliant one
Went for a wedding which was really nice. Stunning venue with loads of open fields around for the kids to play/stroll around. The food was fantastic, and the bar service was fast and polite. Only downside was an insane amount of tiny bugs coming off the trees outside the entrance 1
We had our wedding at the beautiful Notley Tythe Barn earlier this year and the level of service and care they showed us was second to none. They took the time to answer all our questions and helped make the whole planning process a pleasure. Despite us getting married on a Saturday in peak wedding season we were made to feel special and unique and not part of a production line. The chef deserves a special mention for the amazing food - our guests are still raving about the dauphinoise potato and the prosecco sorbet!! We didn't have to worry about a thing and were able to relax and enjoy our special day in this amazing barn and grounds.
What a perfect day we had! We all loved every second. The Barn is just beautiful and it was the perfect setting for our autumnal wedding. All the staff were brilliant and really helpful and the food was incredible!
Choosing the right wedding venue is of course one of the most important decisions any couple makes about their wedding day so we knew we had to get it right and boy did we by booking Notley Tythe Barn to host our reception in August. Not only is the barn beautiful beyond what any picture can do justice to, the team are brilliant and the food was to die for. From both outside and inside, the barn and grounds had us wanting to book the venue from the moment we saw it. From then on things went from strength to strength. We thoroughly enjoyed meeting Petr and the kitchen team when we first came to try food and were really pleasantly surprised to be given a glass of champagne and treated with such deference despite the team also having to focus on a wedding going on at the same time next door in the barn itself. When we tried the food we were equally bowled over by just how delicious it was! Something almost every guest we spoke to repeatedly told us on the day. One friend said “this is the best food I have had in a very very long time, not just at a wedding but anywhere” another friend who works for a catering company said that it was some of the best food he has ever seen or tasted at a wedding.
On top of the meal the option of an ice-cream buffet in the evening was a stroke of genius, especially as we were allowed to choose any flavours under the sun – Petr pulled off Baileys and Oreo flavoured ice-cream flawlessly, it was delicious! One thing every one also commented on was the generous portion sizes or our food; we were truly blessed to not only have such good food but also so much of it!
We left our decorations at the barn to be put out for us and we arrived on our wedding day to see it decorated beautifully exactly as we wanted it. In fact more flowers were even picked for us from the gardens to be put on our top table, making it look stunning. The whole team from the most junior to the most senior member of staff was unbelievably calm, so friendly and really very thoughtful, nothing was too much and everyone smiled so sincerely that you might have thought that they were a guest at the wedding too. I was particularly impressed by how they liaised with our master of ceremonies, gave us (the bride and groom) five minutes to ourselves in an anteroom before the meal and looked after us with free drinks. The grounds with their horses, beautiful smaller stone barn, fields and grass lawn are magnificent and the barn itself stands out as a gem amongst this stunning backdrop. Everything was perfect, so thank you all so much for giving us the wedding day we’d always dreamed of. 9th August 2014
Thank you all for all that you did to make our wedding day so special... it really was PERFECT. We have received so many compliments about the staff the character of the place and of course how delicious the food was. Such high quality food and with such generous portions. We will remember the uniqueness of Notley forever. You guys really made it the wedding of our dreams. 21st June 2014
A big thank you from both of us for making our wedding very special. Everything ran so smoothly on the day and we felt in very good hands. A special mention about the food, which was amazing and we couldn't have had a better venue for our day. 8th November 2013
It was absolutely unforgettable and just everything we wanted it to be and more. You made sure it was completely our day and tailored just for us down to every single detail. All our food choices were fab and looked stunning. We had lots and lots of comments from our guests saying how fantastic the venue is. It really is magical with a romantic elegant feel and atmosphere. It was absolutely the perfect menu for us. 27th March 2014
The Barn is a gem of a venue and the perfect setting for the ceremony. The attention to detail ans assistance given by all of the team was faultless both before the big day and on the Saturday itself - nothing was too much trouble. The food both in quality and quantity was exceptional. Thank you for such a splendid day. 2nd Nov 2013
