Full Description
Chilli Barn is about ten miles north of Leeds and there is a wide choice of accommodation locally. Converted in 2014, Chilli Barn combines the charm and character of its rural past with a touch of glamour and modernity. The old wagon door, now glazed, opens out to the lawn and meadow. We offer two day weddings with access the day before to allow you to dress the Barn and surroundings to your taste, the barn from your ceremony time on the day of your wedding and a sit down wedding breakfast. We can also offer one day packages for an couples who want a relaxed, late afternoon ceremony with on the day set up. We will work closely with you well in advance to develop a plan to make Chilli Barn the ideal place for your magical wedding. All our food is freshly cooked on site and can be served either to table or more informally as a buffet. We have recently created a new vegetarian menu which combines British and international influences and offers a wide range of choices to suit your taste. The ceremony capacity at Chilli Barn is 60 with an evening party capacity of 90. The space can be enhanced with an attached marquee or outdoor structure. The bar offers a wide range of wines, beers and spirits, many of which are organic, vegetarian and local. We can also serve a barrel of your favourite real ale from local breweries.

Wonderful wedding day
We wanted to say a massive THANK YOU for everything that you did for us last Saturday – we had the most wonderful wedding day and we are so grateful to everyone at the Chilli Barn. Firstly, thank you Natalie for your support in planning the day. Your guidance and calmness amidst all the madness of pandemic planning was very welcome indeed! It was brilliant to hear your ideas throughout the process, and you were so approachable and so patient with all our questions. We also loved how much flexibility you gave us around the day which allowed us to make our wedding our own – when we first viewed the Chilli Barn we were hugely excited by the prospect of such a personalised experience and had struggled to find that elsewhere, so it really meant a lot to us. Furthermore, the fact that you coordinated with all the suppliers made our lives very easy indeed which was very much appreciated. A huge thank you also needs to go to the team who were there on the day, particularly Lucy who was an absolute star and made the whole day run so smoothly. Everything was taken care of in the most professional way, we didn’t have to worry about a thing, and the staff were absolutely brilliant and so personable. The table service worked brilliantly and nobody was ever short of a drink, and our guests commented on how impeccable the service was throughout the day. The tiny touches made such a difference as well, nothing was too much trouble for any of the staff, so we were able to just sit back and enjoy our day knowing that we were in the safest of hands. Finally we also wanted to thank the chef for the food, which was magnificent. Everything was beautifully presented and utterly delicious, and we loved seeing people’s faces light up when it arrived at the table! Some of our guests had also admitted they were dubious about the vegetarian menu, but later came up to us specifically to say how much they had enjoyed it so I think that speaks volumes! We never dreamed that our wedding day could be so wonderful and there was absolutely nothing that could have been improved – it was completely perfect. Thank you so, so much for giving us such an exceptional wedding day! With all our thanks, Katy & Mark

Dream Day
The Chilli Barn is a fantastic place for anyone having their dream day! The barn and outdoor areas are a beautiful blank canvas for you to make your day exactly how you want it! The team worked with us every step of the way to change and adapt our plans as necessary given what has been going on this year. Despite all of this we still had our perfect day and all our guests loved our wedding and had a great time. With the new restrictions on weddings and the limited number of guests allowed the Chilli Barn is a perfect venue for intimate weddings. A big thank you to all of the team at Chilli Barn.
