The barn will seat a maximum of 50 people for a dinner, or 80 standing. Tables and chairs are included in the hire.

Barn capacity can be increased by adding a marquee in the private garden (maximum size: 70ft by 40ft from a supplier of your choice). This area has a patio that is suitable for outdoor catering, for example, a hog roast.

The barn has a fully equipped kitchen with a food/drink servery hatch.

The barn is licensed for entertainment, for example, a band or disco. Any band must be kept inside the barn and not allowed to perform in a hired marquee.  

Alcohol is allowed on site but the venue is not licensed for the sale of alcohol. Burchatts Farm Barn does not hold a licence for wedding ceremonies.
