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 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.

Special Moments
The most memorable part of our day was when we stopped for a minute on the day and just took it all in and we thought to ourselves how happy we were to have our big day at Chilli Barn. The day had been so hectic up to that point and the weather had been a little overcast, but as soon as our wedding breakfast ended, the sun came out, and all our guests headed outside to sit round the fire pit, play lawn games and have a photo shoot at sunset. It was such a special moment that will stay with us forever.

SIMPLY SPECTACULAR
Genuinely the best day of our lives. The most perfect venue surrounded by our family and friends. Outstanding venue for a ceremony and amazing evening reception. Natalie and the Chilli Barn team offer an endless amount of support and we could not have asked for a more perfect setting for the best day of our lives. Can we do it again please?

The best day ever!
We honestly had the best day ever! Thank you so much to the whole team for our perfect day. The Chilli Barn was the perfect venue - it provided a beautiful blank canvas to make our own. On the day itself, it felt like the team became family members in terms of how much they cared about every little detail. Nothing was too much trouble or silly - they took care of everything and the day ran perfectly. Everyone complimented the venue and the food was delicious. Working with Lucy was a dream. I also want to say thank you for the genuine compassion from Richard and the team when we had to postpone our wedding. We are so glad we chose such a lovely family business. Our experience working with you was seamless - you thought of things we would have overlooked, organised everything impeccably and were incredibly responsive. Again, it felt like working with family in terms of how much care went into it - we never felt like "just another wedding" even though we know how busy it is right now!

The experience was fantastic throughout
The experience was fantastic throughout. All the staff were amazing and everything ran like clockwork. We didn't need to worry about anything, it was all taken care of. Can't praise everyone enough. Guests all loved the location and venue in general, lots of questions about how we found the place! Amazing food - everyone raved about it! Loved the selection and everything came out quickly with no delays for anyone. We will definitely be recommending the Chilli Barn to everyone for any event they are planning! It was the perfect day - thank you all so much.
