“fantastic wedding venue”
Reviewed June 17, 2012

My son and his bride held their wedding here over the jubilee weekend and it could not have gone better! The Barn is so lovley all the staff are so helpfull they even help you decorate the venue which looked amazing. We had afternoon tea followed by a BBQ at night the food was really good. We booked half the quest rooms for our party who said that they were impressed with the price and that breakfast was realy good . The bride and groom overlaid and Andy bless him made the sheff cook them breakfast bacause it wouldnt be right to send the newly weds home hungry!!
Thank you all especialy Andy and Becky x

Slightly concerned by the negative reviews below we solidiered on and booked The Barn @ The Rockingham Arms for our wedding reception. This also meant that we booked the B&B rooms and I can honestly say, hand on heart, I am glad that I did.

You wouldn't have bellieved the food came from the same kitchen as the 2 for £10 menu, it was lovely, all of our individual needs and asks had been sorted, the room looked stunning, the staff were all so helpful and the day was a great success.

The rooms were lovely and clean and well kept and a the beds were soo comfortable too!

My advice would be to ignore the negative reviews below....think logically, these are very few of the many people who drink, eat, party or sleep at this lovely inn and I can honestly say my experience has been great.

Thanks to all staff who made the day what it was....we shall certianly be visiting for many more years to come! :-) x

Visited mid-week and weather was stunning so the pub and grounds were packed!Stayed across the road in an upstairs room - pleasantly decorated,spacious,and clean.However,very busy road outside so there was quite a bit of traffic noise.
Pub was extraordinarily busy so quite a buzz!!Ate in the back room which lacked the appeal of the other areas of the pub and was a bit like an old school dorm.Took the edge off the evening really.Food was just average.Lengthy waits at the bar.
Sure it would be a more appealing venue when a little less chaotic!

Room Tip: Set back off the road

Just been for family meal on Bank Holiday Monday. It was the first time ever my husband has ever not finished his meal, New york chicken was dry and overly smothered in sauce which was clearly out of a packet. Spag bol was what you would expect a child to get, tasteless and watery, no paramasan just a salad bowl with raw onion that I will be able to taste for the next 3 days.
Oh and the table even after having asked for it to be wiped was sticky!!!!

Saying that though, the all day breakfast was a hit........well im asuming it was cos the dog just ate it.

Rather grubby down at heel bar and not very impressed with the attention we were given when making arrangements for the party. My daughter was insistent that the barn was a good venue and wanted to proceed with the booking. It is but it needs a facelift... a rip off at £250 for the evening !
The food provided for the buffet was an even bigger rip off. At £6.95 a head if would be overgenerous to say it was mediocre. Actually it was appalling.
The final nail in the coffin was that we had been promised (verbally... remember to get it in writing if you risk booking a party here) rooms at a discounted rate. When my daughter came to settle up she was accused of lying and not given the rate she had been promised. AVOID!

Room Tip: Choose another hotel.

This pub has been part of my family beer drinking for years. Sadly, whilst the brew is great, the food remains poor. Ate there today with family and thought we'd give it another try. Sadly, it was even worse than I remembered. Cheap pub food, just warmed up (served just warm!) and poorly presented. Eaten better at Wimpey! Wentworth is such a lovely place and deserves a gastro local pub to go with the great ales

Called in for an early pint and a little bonhomie to be confronted by a trimmed up Christmas tree. Maybe I missed the joke but for November the 4th it's just dire.
