Drink Allowance

Buying Off-sales from us at pre-order prices

Wine must be ordered in advance, up to the following quantities:

  • Champagne: 0.6 bottle per person for the reception (0.4 bot.) and toasts (0.2 bot.)
  • Wine: 0.5 bottles per person for the meal

In the case of an over-order, any unopened bottles will be refunded.

In the case of an under-order, we will provide more at our sensible bar prices.

Off-sales wine will be available from the bar until the toasts are poured at the end of the meal or, if speeches are earlier, 30 minutes before the scheduled end of the meal.

Minimum Catering Order

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

Saturdays between 1st May to 30th September – £5,000 ex VAT
Fridays between 1st May to 30th September – £4,000 ex VAT
Saturdays between 1st October and 30th April – £3,000 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.

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.

Licensed bar

We provide a licensed bar which will be the only source of drinks after the meal.

The bar will close at 01:00.


I realised in all the packing up yesterday I did not say goodbye! Once again Thank you so much for making Friday such an amazing day. It was perfect and I would not change a single thing about it. Everyone I spoke to complimented the barn and I felt very lucky to have found such an amazing venue. Food was amazing everyone raved about it and I loved the whole relaxed feel of how it was served on those beautiful wooden boards. Please pass my Thanks to Adam who did a brilliant job and the whole tea - Jul 2011
