Bar and Drinks
What are the Brookfield Barn bar prices like?
We pride ourselves on offering an extensive selection of draught beers, cocktails, wines, spirits and soft drinks all at lower rates than the pubs in our area. In 2020, our draught beers, lagers, ciders and stout were between £3.40 and £3.90 a pint, and Smirnoff Vodka and Gordan's Gin were £2.50 for a single.
A polite note here that as a licensed venue we cannot allow any alcohol, other than what is served by the bar or the caterers, to be consumed onsite. We hope that our low bar prices discourage any guests from wanting to bring their own drink to a wedding here.
Our zero tolerance policy on illegal substances
Unfortunately, the use of illegal substances at weddings is more common than we'd all like to think and we must actively enforce our zero tolerance policy.
The team make regular checks aimed at catching any evidence of use of such substances throughout the day and evening. If evidence is found, as a licensed venue and in line with the Licensing Act 2003 we must:
- inform the couple and show them the evidence,
- immediately cease the sale/distribution of alcohol, with notices on the bar explaining why.
This cessation will remain in place until the guest(s) responsible make themselves known and leave the premises. Should there then be a second occurrence of illegal substance, we will have to call the police immediately, shut the venue and end the wedding.
Can guests bring in their own alcohol?
As a licensed venue, we cannot permit guests to bring and consume their own alcohol onsite. If any such activity is found to be taking place, the events team will be forced to confiscate the alcohol, guest/s in question will be subject to a corkage charge and may be asked to leave.
We hope that our substantial and competitively priced offerings over the bar and the drinks provided by the couple will deter any guests from wanting to bring their own alcohol onsite.
When does the bar open and close?
The bar opening time is decided by the couple, from these possible options:
- before the ceremony, in line with the wider venue opening
- after the ceremony
- after the wedding breakfast
It is also possible to for the couple to choose to open the bar with soft drinks only service.
Last orders are at 11:15pm, with the bar closing at 11:30pm and the wider venue closing at midnight.
What's available at the Brookfield bar?
We offer draught & bottled beers and ciders including Guiness and Rekorderlig, a wide selection of wines and cocktails, and just about every spirit you can think of, as well as a large range of soft drinks and non-alcoholic options. We pride ourselves on our extensive range, on par with or even exceeding that of many local pubs.
Please note that the Brookfield bar does not serve tea, coffee or food/bar snacks. All food and any hot drinks will only be supplied through the couples choice of caterer on the day.
What type of payment does the Brookfield bar take?
We don't take cash over the bar, we are card, contactless and Apple pay only. While it is possible for the couple to pre-set a tab with us in advance of the wedding day, we do not set up individual tabs for guests.
