Event catering at Monkton Barn – we are all foodies now!

As a family of enthusiastic foodies, we have longed for greater involvement in the foodie side of things at Monkton Barn. So, we are thrilled to introduce Monkton’s Rustic Table, our own hospitality catering and bar operation that will look after all your needs.

Headed by Michelin-award winning Executive chef James Knight, Monkton’s Rustic Table comprises the complete Kitchen brigade, waiting staff, front of house manager and bar team, all focussed on delivering your wedding or big event.

Our menu choices are intended to cover every taste; from simple fare such as the traditional English roast, via barbecues, buffets and our famous and ever-popular hog roast, to light summer bites and salads, to warming winter dishes such as Irish stew with dumplings, and steaming bowls of veg. Not forgetting our fine-dining menus and a choice of cuisine from across the globe including Mediterranean, Indian, Moroccan and Asian flavours.

From the kitchen garden …whilst it would be impossible to grow all that we serve, we love to contribute anything produced by our kitchen garden, vineyard and miles of hedgerows and woodland.

Monkton’s Rustic Table – the food brand. As well as being our in-house catering operation, Monkton’s Rustic Table is also our food brand and label for a growing range of delicious and interesting foodie products, including bread from our own bakery.

Monkton’s Bar

We have a reputation for running a lively, fully-stocked bar without a queue; accepting pre-payment, cash or card to stave-off any thirsty moments. We serve drinks wherever needed; from Monkton’s Bar in the barn itself, the Meadow Bar on Home meadow, or our new bar in the woods.

Monkton’s Brewery

We are also thrilled to announce that we are commissioning our own micro-brewery in 2021, to produce a range of artisan ales, including Monkton’s Wedding Ale, which will be available bottled and on available draft for our guests.

Clients will be excited to hear that they will be invited with friends for an evening of “beer research” in good time before their event, so they can taste and choose the brew that they would like us to deliver as their very own Wedding Ale. We will even design your own pump label and present you with a dummy hand pump as a keepsake to remind you of your celebrations!

Wine List

We are wine enthusiasts and in a good year we even produce a dozen cases of wine from our own small vineyard, unfortunately not yet on a commercial scale.

We offer our clients a modest, well-chosen wine list with something for most palettes, where, quite frankly, the golden rule for weddings and parties seems to be not to show-off with extravagant wines, or to offend with the cheapest – so you will find something reasonably-priced and very drinkable, unless you want to provide your own during the day, in which case corkage applies.


We have always made our own delicious homegrown Sloe Gin, and now offer various liqueurs including Sloe Gin made with fruit from our hedgerows and King’s Ginger.
