All your favourites, Tythe style.
Food is at the heart of every celebration and we believe a wedding calls for an extra special dining experience. Gathering together for a fun-filled feast with family and friends is what wedding receptions at Tythe are all about.
Whether your vision is five-courses of fine dining or a hearty, home-cooked dish for sharing, we’ll create a menu that is tailored to your tastes.
Our couples know a good bottle of wine and alongside our food menus, we stock an extensive selection of international, regional and local wines, beers, premium spirits and soft drinks.
Fancy some cocktails to kickstart the evening? Our experienced bar team is on hand to mix, shake and stir whatever you’re in the mood for – or create something special just for you.
What will you eat and where will you eat it? Your top foodie questions answered.
How many wedding breakfast guests can be catered for?
Seating in the barn can be provided for up to 150 guests for the wedding breakfast, with capacity for 200 plus guests in the evening. Please count each person as a place at the table regardless of age so babies in highchairs (we have seven highchairs) are counted as part of your total number of guests.
Our tables are rectangular and seat 8 guests apart from the three window settings where the table can accommodate 9 guests. Round tables can be hired on request, at an additional cost. With round tables the maximum seating capacity in the barn is 110 guests.
Can we use our own caterers?
We fully understand that the catering plays a vital role throughout the course of your wedding day. With the award-winning Absolute Taste team as our in-house caterers, all of your food requirements are taken care of.
Couples are able to arrange tastings to sample dishes before confirming their menu selection. Absolute Taste can cater to all dietary requirements and are well-informed about the special conditions that may need to be in place regarding certain allergies.
Please contact our office for more details and for a Menu brochure.
What evening food options do you offer?
Why not add some theatre to your evening with the help of our chefs creating delicious pizzas for guests, straight from our built-in pizza oven. Or ask us to light the outdoor wood burners and enjoy some fireside quesadillas whilst cosying up on one of our sheepskin rugs. Absolute Taste have a wonderful evening food menu for you to discover – for more details do ask for their Menu brochure.
Do you have a drinks list, and do you charge corkage?
Tythe can supply all alcohol for your wedding day and has a comprehensive Wine and Drinks List. For all new bookings from Autumn 2022, if you choose to supply your own wine for the day then we do not charge a corkage fee. This option is available to couples across Reception drinks, wine during the Wedding Breakfast and Champagne or bubbly for the Toast.
We also have a well-stocked bar with a good selection of wines, spirits, lagers, ale and soft drinks. We love to support local vineyards and distilleries and have a number of locally made Gins, Ales and wines to choose from.
Our bar accepts both cash and cards but not American Express.
“The Tythe Barn was everything we were looking for in a venue and it did not disappoint on the day. Our friends and family were in awe of how stunning it looked, the team made everything run smoothly without us even noticing and Absolute Taste smashed the food out of the park! We just wish we could do it all over again!”
Kate and Dan
“Could not fault this venue, they were amazing in every aspect. They made sure our day ran perfectly. It is perfect for all weathers, light and airy with bi-folding doors, no one felt cramped or closed in. Everyone enjoyed the food so much some people even asked me for a copy of the menu. They were approachable and adaptable every step of the way, they went above and beyond for us.”
“If you are looking for the most amazing venue, who will look after every moment of your special day – with the best food you could imagine – then look no further than The Tythe Barn. We were blown away on our first meeting and everything was brought to life on the day…truly wonderful! If we could do it all again, we would not hesitate to do it here!”

“The catering was amazing (for both the wedding and the night before meal) – we now understand why you only use these caterers. We received so many comments from our guests on how great the food was. It really was delicious.”

“If you have a different cultural background and want to experiment with drinks, don’t be afraid to do so. We did Pisco Sours for our reception… everyone loved them!”
