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.

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.

Absolutely amazing
So glad we chose the Chilli Barn for our wedding venue, they were brilliant from start to finish. All the help and support with planning was great and the staff on the day were just amazing, everything ran like clockwork and we had nothing to worry about. Guests loved the venue too and made loads of positive comments. Food was outstanding. Not a single thing to complain about. Best day ever :)

Moment stat stays with us forever
Thanks so much for having us at Chilli, we had the best day! The venue is such a great setting, exactly what we wanted. Most memorable part of your day - outdoor ceremony, it was even better than we imagined it would be. Also having a final photo of the evening at midnight with everyone under the tipi will be a moment that stays with us forever. Best thing about Chilli Barn - flexibility, you were able to accommodate everything we wanted to make the day personal to us. From bringing our own food and puddings, to flexibility of the decor and layout for tables. We loved having the ceremony outside (once it decided not to rain!), it’s such a unique offer and amazing to have the views in the background. The bar staff were incredible and worked really hard to keep our guests well hydrated! They were really well organised and kept the day running so smoothly, we didn’t have to do anything so we could just relax and enjoy the day. Your experience with the wedding co-ordinator - very responsive throughout the planning process and really helpful to have a full plan written out before the day so we didn’t forget anything. Good recommendations for external suppliers. Quick to react and get things changed on the day when needed.

The best day ever!
Just wanted to say to you and the team a huge thank you for everything! From the organisation to the communication during covid. We were so lucky with you and Chilli Barn that we could postpone so easily and stress free, I’d read a lot of horror stories about people losing money and unable to postpone to the date they wanted. It really was the best day ever!! Most memorable of the day - everything! It’s amazing how I was probably stressing and feeling worried but the staff just seem so calm, collected and organised. Everything just ran like clockwork! The staff always had a smile on their face and willing to help, and went above and beyond. I think for me the memorable part was pulling up in the camper van, knowing everyone I know and love was inside the barn waiting and Lee was just behind the door! I got so emotional. We also really loved the yurt and it was definitely well used by everyone. Best thing about chilli barn - the whole setting, rural, rustic and peaceful, the barn itself is just stunning for photos and the surrounding area. Guests were telling us they could see why we chose that venue as it suited our personalities and the kind of wedding we wanted. Having our wedding at the Chilli Barn definitely exceeded our expectations! Can’t wait to come back to visit the tea rooms and reminisce. Words to the chef - guests commented that the food was amazing! Especially the pies! Lee’s mum unfortunately couldn’t attend due to an operation recovery and she’s really, really fussy so we were really struggling with the food for her, but her daughter took some pie home for her that night and even she said the chicken pie was gorgeous! There was just something for everyone. Although some guests had everything! So curry, rice, pie, mash and gravy all on one plate! 😂. Lee said the mash was lovely too!! There was plenty of the food and no way did anyone go hungry. One of my guests was gluten and wheat free and he really enjoyed the food also. Experience with the wedding coordinator - as mentioned above, you’ve always been calm, organised, approachable and friendly. You’ve really communicated well, especially during covid and having to postpone. Everything ran like clockwork, couldn’t have faulted anything! The staff on the day were just amazing, Lucy, Leah and everyone else, nothing seemed like too much! Thanks again to them. I’m really going to miss planning the wedding and the build up, it’s a bit strange that it’s all over after waiting for so long but definitely got fantastic memories and thank you all again for everything 😀
