Established by Yard Space Events, Old Gore Barn is a charming street-food wedding venue situated in the picturesque village of Calmsden, Gloucestershire. With over a decade of experience in venue management, they have channelled their passion for flavour, fire and creative catering into bringing you memorable and unique events in the heart of the Cotswolds.
This newly renovated barn offers an expansive space for all aspects of your celebration.
They are licensed to hold civil ceremonies of up to 115 guests, giving you the opportunity to stage your entire day there. Exchange your vows in front of their woodburning stove, surrounded by natural greenery, exposed beams, and contemporary Crittall-style doors, creating a light, airy ambience.
Transition your guests to the heart of the venue, their courtyard, to enjoy a relaxed drinks reception overlooking the Cotswolds valleys. Their carefully curated canapés and crisp Prosecco will be sure to get your taste buds tingling for your main meal! Hosted in the ‘long barn,’ enjoy a feast of Middle Eastern-inspired dishes, stone-baked pizzas, or their twist on tacos, all within view of their outdoor kitchen and Argentine Asado fire pit.
Continue with the street-food theme by serving puddings from the kitchen hatches, where your guests can help themselves to churros, gelato, or warm chocolate brownies. Enjoy your evening celebrations up until midnight, with use of the venue’s state-of-the-art Funktion One sound system, a fully-stocked bar, and delicious late night food options such as burgers, bao buns and their head chef’s renowned savoury doughnuts!
Whilst we don't have onsite accommodation, we have some in-company options that are local to the venue. Our company flagship pub, The Stump, is situated less than a mile from Old Gore, and boasts ten contemporary-country ensuite bedrooms, as well as a brand new events space which can hold pre or post-wedding events for up to 50 guests!
A further 10-minute drive will take you to our second pub, The New Inn, with 14 ensuite bedrooms and a garden suite fit for any bride or groom-to-be! Our country cottages, Montreal House and Casina Cottage are the perfect space for your wedding party or family to gather during your celebrations and are both just a 10-minute drive from OGB. We are in the heart of the Cotswolds, a holiday hotspot, so you will not be short of accommodation options for yourselves or your guests!
All catering is provided in-house by our talented street-food chefs! Our kitchen team take pride in curating exceptional menus to suit every taste, sourcing only the finest produce from local vendors.
Our refined wine selection is all biodynamic, and supports independent, family run vineyards in Italy, Spain, Germany, France, and New Zealand.
There are lots of churches local to Old Gore, so if you choose to get married in a church, you can still use the barn as your venue for your reception, wedding breakfast and evening party.
We have minimum guest numbers for different days of the week. Monday - Thursday is a minimum of 65 adults. Friday and Sunday are 80 adults. Saturdays and Bank Holidays are 90 adults.
Of course! We are open to any suppliers, from photographers to florists and bands. We have a comprehensive list of recommended suppliers on our website, who are local and have worked at the barn before! You are by no means limited to this list, and can choose your own suppliers to bring into the barn.
