Group Bookings

A Spacious Venue

 We cater for small groups right up to 150 people.  We can offer the whole restaurant, bar, Cartroom and gallery, dependent on the size of your party.

Free Parking

Avoid the hustle and bustle of the town centre and use our large free car park on site.  We also have private transport links to get you home if you’ve had a tipple!

Customised Menus

For group bookings, you have the full A ’la Carte menu to choose from, alternatively, advised by a member of staff, you can create a small, limited menu more personal for your function by selecting various options from the standard menu.

A Beautiful Open Plan Venue

The Oak Barn has an open plan layout including a warming fireplace, courtyard and restaurant area, creating a relaxing environment for your group event.

Free Function Areas

We don’t charge if you use the restaurant, gallery or private areas for your group event.  You can also decorate the venue as you like with banners, balloons and flowers.


Before or after your meal, you can enjoy the beautiful Burgess Hill Golf Centre next door.  Show off your skills on the range or have a putting competition on the Augusta style putting green!

hot and cold buffets



Large groups often enjoy a more relaxed approach to dining – a buffet provides the perfect way to socialise and sample a wide range of tasty, quality food at the same time.

Our mouth watering buffet options include our homemade beef and horseradish canapés, Yorkshire puddings, and mini Harveys beer battered fish and chip with mushy pea puree as well as our classic sandwich selection.

We believe our standard buffet menu is second to none – however if this does not suit your particular needs then feel free to speak to a member of the team to discuss alternative dishes, drink options and advice on where your group should eat.

All that will be left for you to do is eat, drink & relax.

business events

The Oak Barn is great for business meetings and working lunches. With free Wi Fi & private areas available, your event can be held without interruption. We also have a private room, at no extra charge, which seats up to 25 people comfortably.  This is ideal for a business conference or team building session, and includes an area for presentations and speeches.

After your event, feel free to retire to the relaxing lounge area to enjoy a fresh coffee. Alternatively, why not boost staff moral with some team building exercises over at the driving range next door.  Great fun and ideal for stress relief!  Our team of golf professionals can improve your team’s swing or simply give some handy advice on golfing skills.


If you have limited time during your business meeting, just mention this to a member of staff and we will ensure you get priority.  We can provide quality menu options which will not keep you for too long.

We don’t serve fast food – we serve good food as fast as we can!
