How it works

At Shustoke Farm Barns we buy only the best raw materials, regardless of cost (sorry, accountants!), we then hand them over to Head Chef who will deliver them to you, precisely cooked and served with the simplicity that such fine ingredients deserve.

Our food is prepared and cooked either on our 8-spit rotisserie, on our huge BBQ or with our own Smoker.

We are known for our whole BBQ’d lambs, sirloin steak bricks or butterflied legs of lamb. Alternatively you can choose from our Rotisserie options including chicken with a cream and tarragon sauce, whole suckling pig with roast apples or even Gressingham duck with wine & blackcurrant sauce.  We only use the best ingredients and serve it simply in a feast style on boards and in bowls to the centre of the tables.


Here are some things to consider when building your quote.   If you have any questions about anything please drop us an email at

Minimum Catering Order

At Shustoke Farm Barn we have a minimum catering order on specific dates, as follows;

  • Fridays between 1st May to 30th September – £4,000 ex VAT
  • Saturdays between 1st May to 30th September – £5,000 ex VAT
  • Saturdays between 1st October and 30th April – £4,000 ex VAT

All minimum costs are excluding drink sales.

This will be calculated at the end of your quote and a balancing amount added to bring the Catering cost to the minimum value.

There is no minimum spend if the barn hire is under £2800 at any time of year. This does not apply to dates when the barn hire is discounted.

Staffing Costs

These are shown separately rather than being included in the meal costs, which is difficult to do with an extended event like an all-day wedding.  On your quote you will see the projected staff numbers and hours.

The staff couldn't have been more attentive and made sure everything ran to time an an organised effortless manner. To all the staff and especially Kathryn, Emma, Cassie and Will we cannot thank you enough. All the guests are raving about the venue, food and service.many saying it was the best wedding they had ever been too. We had endless food, the canape sausages and dauphinois potatoes will be talked about for years to come. I cannot recommend Shustoke farm barns enough. Why get married in a corporate, faceless hotel when you can choose a venue where they work tirelessly to make sure your day is perfect and you can relax and enjoy it. - May 2015
