The Great Barn was originally built in 1580 and was moved to its present site in 1745 when the house was built. This listed barn, with its original beams dating back to 1490, has a very impressive structure. Before the advent of modern farming, it was used as a threshing barn where sheaves of wheat were stored and threshed during the winter months. Having lain redundant for 50 years, Anna & Jamie came up with the plan to use it for events – thus saving this very special building from dereliction and preserving it for generations to come. Work began in 2010 and was completed in 2014. The restored Great Barn was the winner of the 2015 Chilterns Building Design Award.

Some of the products we can deliver include

Crockery Hire

The simple cup, plate and bowl are some of the items that we hire out most often at Chiltern Catering and Event Hire. They’re maybe not the most glamorous of the items we stock but they’re still an important part of many kinds of events and occasions.

We have crockery in various different shapes and sizes to match differing styles of occasions and different themes. We keep large amounts of stock available to help ensure we can meet demands for even the biggest events and wedding. However, we do recommend that for larger events that you order with at least 14 days notice to ensure it can be picked in time.

If you hate washing up, you don’t need to worry. Our “send it back dirty” service means that all you need to do after your event is to scrape the crockery you have used clean of any food debris, put them back into the packing crates that they were delivered in and we will clean them back at our warehouse.
