About The BarnYard

Situated in the Kent countryside, the BarnYard is a haven for those wishing to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life. The venue incorporates a restaurant, luxury artisan farm and gift shop, friendly animals and nature trails as well as being known as one of Kent's best and most beautiful wedding venues.

The BarnYard (owned by A C Goatham & Son a company well known for growing exceptional apples and pears) is now run by Joanne and David McInnes of Zest Creative Catering who share the same vision for this fantastic venue as the owners - to make it a truly exceptional place to spend time in.

There is literally something for everyone to enjoy.

Thank you very much for helping make our wedding day so special. It was great to have your guidance and help to plan and organise the day, it was much appreciated. We were very impressed by the great service and lovely food and many of our guests also praised this. We had an amazing day. Thanks again.
