Event Catering Information


We offer mid-week tastings at our base in Markethill for two people and this costs £65 per person plus VAT. Typically this will be in blocks three times per year, and available dates/times can be provided on request – unfortunately we are unable to host tastings on weekends due to catering commitments. We prepare full portions of your choice of a total of two starters, two main courses (served with Chefs choice of potatoes and vegetables), and either two desserts or one trio of desserts – each person attending will have a full three course meal, so bring a good appetite!

What Our Customers Have to Say...

"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."
S&P, Larchfield Estate

"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! "
F&S, Riverdale Barn

"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!"
Ciara and Mark, Larchfield Estate August 2016

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"
Aoife and Albert Hamilton – Larchfield Estate May 2016
