Just wow! We had the best day ever, thank you so much for everything you guys do there at Shustoke Farm Barns. We could not be happier with how our day went, it was perfect in every way. Natalie & Greg - Jul 2017
When we read the reviews for this venue and saw the pictures online we were confident this would be the venue for us. Within 10 minutes of our first viewing it was better than we thought and we'd already decided we were booking. The day itself was an absolute dream. We were both a bag of nerves and full on deer in headlights in the morning, but the staff were just incredible all day with us and our guests. We all knew where to go and when, what was coming up and what would be going on. Seamless organisation, we can't praise them enough honestly. The venue was just beautiful day and night, our guests complimented it all day as being such a unique and totally awesome building. We chose not to put up any decorations just because the exposed brick, gorgeous oak throughout, candlelight and tiny lights in the ceiling beams were just stunning. FOOD!! Every single person had something to say about the food. "Best food they've ever had at a wedding" and our day guests had to have a good breather before even contemplating an evening snack. We had the British Feast with beef and everyone loved that the meat was carved at each table and the large portions of potatoes and veg were put in the middle for you to help yourself. Our guests did find a space eventually and the pizzas provided by Baz & Fred were enjoyed by all. To all the staff, especially Emma and Tom who were our main contacts on our day, thank you so much for giving us the best wedding ever in the perfect venue. Melissa & Phil - Jul 2017

We can't thank the team at Shustoke Farm Barns enough for such a perfect wedding day. The venue itself is absolutely stunning and all of our guests commented on how beautiful the barn, court yard and surrounding area was. I'd definitely recommend the candle package as it gives it an extra special touch. The food was delicious, we chose the mixed grill for mains; chicken, sausage, burger and lamb chops. It was amazing and there was plenty of it! All of our guests enjoyed the meal and the evening food (hotdogs-delicious). The whole day went so smoothly. Ellis and Tom were our managers for the day/evening they were fantastic and lead a brilliant team. The staff are all so professional, friendly and accommodating. We had the most perfect wedding day, all of our guests loved it and we had the best day ever. Thank you so much Shustoke team, you are all awesome. - Jun 2017

The venue was stunning, we had lots of guests complement on how beautiful the various rooms were, and everything was laid out as requested. The food exceeded expectations - portion sizes were very generous and the quality was superb. The staff were extremely well informed, friendly and couldn't do enough to make our day perfect. The day and evening managers (Emma & Kevin) were always on hand to answer any questions we had and deal with last minute requests.

If you're looking for your dream wedding venue, then look no further - from the moment we saw the venue online we fell in love. Our expectations were exceeded when we walked in though! From the moment we started planning we knew this was the venue for us, and now the 'deed is done' we can certainly say we made the right choice. Where to start... The food was totally fabulous. All of our guests commented on the high quality, and generous portion sizes both for meat eaters and vegetarians. All left feeling incredibly full, but very satisfied. A number even commenting on never attending a wedding with food this tasty. The canapés were also a huge hit during the reception, as were the Pimms and ginger ale beverages. The pork baps; huge but again so tasty! Definitely worth every penny. The team that served us on the day were extremely warm and friendly - both us and our guests felt that they could not do any more for us. Ellis and Kevin ensured that the day ran smoothly, to plan and that we were happy throughout. Kevin helped our guests arrange taxis, and rallied groups together to share cars back to their hotel. We found the experience leading up to the wedding positive, with prompt responses to our questions and responses via the notes system. It was a great way to track communications, especially with many things going on at once when planning a wedding. It was a dream come true for us, and we are looking at our photos as we speak feeling extremely warm and contented. Thank you to all of the team who made our dream come true. - May 2017
Our daughter got married at your beautiful venue.  My husband and I would like to thank you all from the bottom of our hearts for making it the most wonderful of weddings.  You all worked incredibly hard and the politeness and friendliness from you towards all our guests was fantastic.  The food was exceptional as was the constant replenishment of wine and bubbly.  Superb service at all times .... we were able to relax with our friends and family without having any worries about anything else.  We really are so incredibly grateful that both our daughter and son-in-law had the most happiest day, and that all tireless preparations during this last year worked beautifully. We shall never forget the part you all played in achieving a fairytale to remember. - May 2017

To all the wonderful staff at Shustoke Farm Barns, We just wanted to say a massive thank you! Our wedding on Monday was absolutely perfect and everything we hoped it would be. The venue looked beautiful and everyone raved about the food. Most of our guests commented that it was the best food they have ever had at a wedding. With having a lot of rugby players at the wedding we thought they may not be enough but the food was plentiful and delicious. Emma and Chris were fantastic and made sure the day ran smoothly and all the staff were attentive and friendly. We can't thank you enough for giving us a perfect wedding day. Thank you so much, Cara and Jase. xx - Mar 2016
