The Kingscote Barn is a stunning venue located in the heart of the Cotswolds.
It has taken our venue spotlight this month as we have been lucky enough to be working along side the amazing team at the barn for three years.
It would be easier to talk about the things we haven’t done at the barn as each wedding at the barn is always so unique and different.
In this blog we will talk about the different areas of the barn and how we as caterers along side our wonderful couples have made the most out of the wonderful Kingscote Barn. Having perfected over 250 weddings at the barn it is safe to say our team know it like the back of their hand.
That rolling hills view
Undoubtably the most breathtaking part of The Kingscote Barn is its stunning rolling hill views. But don’t just take our word for it, large parts of the Cotswolds are known for their outstanding natural beauty.
Not only does this make for the perfect pictures it also gives guests that real British country feel. We are not always blessed with the best weather in the UK but when we are this is taken full advantage of with an outdoor ceremony.
What could be better than your guests soaking up the sunshine while watching you tie the knot?
The vintage cart located in the reception area in the bar lends itself amazingly to a fantastic, sociable and unforgettable drinks reception. With Cleverchefs flexible approach our couples have been wowed by the fact that they can have any drink they would like as their first after tying the knot.
From the traditional fizz to espresso martinis even to Oreo milkshakes the possibilities are endless! Coupled with Cleverchefs mouthwatering canapés, large selection of props and our smiling front of house team ready to serve your guests this makes the drinks reception a real talking point.
Whether you decide to go all out with your décor or keep things simple and stripped back.
The Kingscote Barn always looks breathtaking. Because of its tradition barn feel it really gives couples the chance to put their own mark on the place.
Cleverchefs work really closely with the team at the barn so we will take all of the stress away of the wedding breakfast decoration set up, just leave it with our team and we will take care of it!
As a caterer we have ensured our menus fit along side the rustic feel of the venue. From delicious his and her sharing picnic boxes to our famous BBQ planks we really know how to keep that rustic laid back feeling of the barn.
With that said our Michelin trained chefs have also created some beautiful bespoke dishes with our couples to give the wedding breakfast that elegant feel.
Cleverchefs are extremely flexible and all of our team are real foodies so we can sit down and put together a menu that "wows" your guests because after all who doesn’t think food is one of the most important aspects of your big day.
Those little extras
As a wedding guest it is those little extras that guests really remember and talk about for years to come.
Here at Cleverchefs we can help with that, over the past three years at The Kingscote Barn we have been lucky enough to hear both couples and guests let out that excitement when seeing our final touches on the day.
From our vintage ice-cream cart to our dessert grazing tables we promise to wow your guests.
Not only is the Courtyard the perfect place for your guests to get that bit of fresh air after busting those moves on the dance floor it is also the perfect street food area. The evening catering in the Courtyard has a relaxed feel with guests not having to venture too far from the dance floor for their tasty evening snack.
The Courtyard has a 500 degree pizza oven, teamed with Cleverchefs pizza toppings and a chef live cooking the pizzas in front of guests it’s a match made in heaven! But don’t just take that from us if you ask anyone who has tasted one of our delicious pizzas they will say how amazing they are, with some even claiming it’s the best wood fired pizza they have ever tasted!!
