  • Mel and Simon - 20/07/2016

    We had a fantastic day and just to re-iterate what my father (Bernard) said in his email we cannot thank you and the rest of the team enough for a well organised fun day and evening. Zoe was an absolute star for sorting soda water for my dress when it has red marks on it, they completely disappeared! The food and service from the staff was very professional, please pass on our thanks to Zoe, the chef, kitchen staff and the service staff. Kelly we also wanted to thank you so much for all your help in taking us through the occasion. It was very helpful that you were able to meet with us a few times before the event, and we really appreciated your smile and can do attitude despite the odd challenge (eg band food etc). So in addition to the names mentioned I would like to add particular praise to yourself for the professional and positive manner in which you helped us up to and during the wedding. The best selling point of Barnett is being able to spend the whole day and evening in one venue in fantastic grounds.

  • Sharon and Steve – 13/06/2016

    Steve and I held our entire wedding here in December last year. Right from the moment we walked in we loved Barnett Hill, so much so we never bothered looking at any other venue. The staffs were amazing, reassuring us every step of the way. When it came to the day of our wedding the venue was decorated exactly as I had imagined it with the staff staying up to the small hours to ensure everything was in place as I requested, nothing was too much trouble. The reception was stunning, such beautiful food (as was the meal the night before). Steve and I could not have asked for a better day. Thank you Barnett Hill for giving us the most amazing day.

  • Nicola and Ryan – 30/03/2016

    The day itself was fantastic! We could not have asked for a better day. All our guests raved about how good the food was, from the canapés, to the wedding breakfast, to the evening buffet, they said it was all delicious (especially the scampi which I was slightly disappointed I didn’t get to try, but I couldn’t eat a thing after the wedding breakfast!) We were very impressed with all the staff, Rebecca was brilliant, as was Zoe, the other waiting staff also got high praise from our families. I have often heard people say things went a bit wrong on their wedding day, food wasn’t quite right, etc. But I can honestly say everything was perfect and actually exceeded expectations. So, thank you and all the team at Barnett Hill for making our special day so special.
