"We just wanted to sincerely thank you and your entire team for the spectacular service at our wedding. From you greeting us as we arrived and making sure we got some bites while getting our photos taken really set the tone for things to come that day. I know we made a last minute change the week before in the meat choice and we couldn't have been more delighted with our choice. I am not even exaggerating when I say nearly every single person who had the beef commented on how amazing it was and most people said that it was the nicest food they had ever had at a wedding before and we both totally agree, even our "food critic" guests and trust me we had a few were complimentary about everything that was served that day, saying everything was first class and the servers were so accommodating and nice. Even my fussy cousin with his sausages and potatoes was so delighted :) Food was so important to us and you guys really just blew us away with it. Thank you so so much, we literally had the most fantastic day and we just want to thank you for your huge role you played it was such a pleasure to work with you especially being so understanding as we lived overseas it really made everything so much easier for us."

"Peter and the team were absolutely brilliant. We had afternoon tea and coffee with shortbread which we were able to make ourselves with the family recipe and bring (a family wedding tradition), and then our main meal in the evening. The quality of the service was unbeatable, from making sure that our very young guests were catered for with special juices, children’s meals and even baby bowls. We had diabetic and gluten free requirements on our day but again this was no problem. Our wedding had 130 guests but all of them were served quickly and correctly which I personally was very impressed with. Our three course meal was Spiced Butternut Squash Soup, a choice of Roast beef or Stuffed Chicken wrapped in Parma Ham and dessert was Chocolate Fudge Cake. All of it was cooked to perfection, the soup was hot, the meat was tender and the dessert was perfect. Peter and his team are absolute professionals, I know I was quite demanding with our meal, the number of guests and diversity of needs but nothing was a bother. Definitely put them on your shortlist!

"What an amazing night! We met Peter Slevin in the early stages of wedding preparations and quickly decided he was the perfect person to handle our wedding! We had a large wedding (230) and we had about 80 people coming from Canada. We wanted to really put on a party and every level of perfection was met and surpassed. Old Barn was always multiple steps ahead of any changes needed which meant we could enjoy our night. Everyone raved about the food from the canapés to the dessert and everything between. Thanks everyone, particularly Peter and the team!"
Meagan and Mick, Larchfield Estate August 2016
"What a fantastic team you have! From the moment I met Peter on my tasting day I knew I'd made the right choice! The food was outstanding and Peter was just a pleasure to work with! So relaxed yet professional, I can honestly say he really made a big difference to how relaxed I was on the day as I really trusted him! Everything was exactly as I dreamed on the day! Could not recommend enough, and I'm trying to make up an event just to taste the food again!"

Catherine and Liam – Marquee wedding, July 2016
"Thank you so much to the Old Barn for catering our wedding in April. Peter and James were excellent to deal with. The food was fabulous, we had so many compliments! You dealt with allergies, intolerances and quirks with absolute ease - ensuring that we were at ease and able to relax, which meant a lot! From our tasting - which was a lovely experience in itself - to the big day itself the food was something that we looked forward to. We would recommend you to anyone getting married :) best wishes"

"We struggled to find a caterer that not only worked with our budget but were also lovely to work with. They really spent time working with us to come up with a great menu that wasn't stereotypical wedding food but also within our budget. Peter and James also spent lots of time giving advice on all aspects of the wedding, since my husband and I didn't really know what we were doing! Peter was so helpful helping us even plan the layout of the room as I was unsure how to arrange the tables without having lots of empty space! They were a joy to work with"
"The Old Barn were an absolute joy to work with. Planning a wedding from Australia was easy working with such a great catering company. Nothing was a problem, Peter and his team were so accommodating. The food on the day was exceptional, it was all served piping hot and every single guest received a tasty 3 course meal. The Old Barn are extremely professional and I would highly recommend them"
"Peter, James and the Old Barn team are exceptional. Since we contacted them regarding our wedding catering, we have had the most professional, friendly service. They go up and beyond to ensure your event goes well. We had our wedding in Larchfield Estate in December 15. All our 140 guests absolutely adored the food and service. 10/10 for gorgeous food & customer service. Thanks so much again!!"
"The Old Barn catered our wedding in Grace Hall. Fantastic food & service which couldn't be faulted!! No request was too much for them & we received so many compliments from our guests on the quality of the catering. Thank u so much to James & Peter for all their hard work. We would highly recommend the Old Barn"
"Hi Peter. Thank you and your team so much for everything you did over the wedding weekend. The food was fantastic on both days and yourself and your staff were wonderful. Please pass on our thanks to James specifically too – no one was left hungry that is for sure – even the big lads. If you ever need a reference for any other potential clients we would be happy to give one. Hope to see you again when we are back in NI"
"Dear Peter. Just wanted to say another big thank for all your help and patience in planning our wedding back in May. We have just returned from our 6 month honeymoon so only getting round to saying our thank you's now! Everything on the day went so smoothly thanks to you and your great team. A massive thanks to James for the amazing food and to Ciara as well. It all went so perfectly and I was very impressed with everything especially as it was the first wedding in the marquee. We had a truly wonderful day! I promised I would send you a few photos of the grounds and Marquee so please find attached. If there is anything I can do to promote your services do let me know!"
"I know we will see you later but I just wanted to say a HUGE thank you for last night I was really sorry not to see you to say so, but the food was fantastic and a number of the guests from The World ship asked us to pass on their thanks. Especially loved the salmon risotto starter and the lemon meringue cones were a huge favourite!"

“I just wanted to send an email to say a very big thank you for catering our wedding in Larchfield on 28th September. Everything went perfectly from the set up on the Sunday, (Peter you knew what you were doing better than what we did & thanks for keeping us right on a few issues regarding table plans!) to the actual wedding on the Monday. All the food was delicious and perfectly as we had remembered it from our tasting! We're still hearing compliments from our guests! Its one of the major worries with a wedding, the food, however we would highly recommend yourselves to anyone wanting a professional, stress free and delicious wedding catered. We can't guarantee any more big catering events but we will definitely be back to the restaurant! Everything was perfect from start to finish – thank you.”
“ Morning Peter - Just a note to thank you, James and Chris for the event onSaturday night. After me initially panicking about the time everything ran perfectly. The food was absolutely fantastic and we had no complaints at all. Thank you all for your help.”
