The Flying Fish Wedding Barn- Somerset


We are a family run business with over 25 years experience in the hospitality industry.

We work together as a team to provide you with impeccable service, deliciously fresh food and, of course, memories to last a lifetime.

Nothing is too much trouble and we look forward to helping you create, your perfect day!

The Flying Fish Barn enjoys an elevated, peaceful, rural position in the heart of South Somerset.  Surrounded by fields with stunning views across to The Blackdown Hills, yet just 5 mins from the A303 and 10 mins from the M5 making it very accessible from all over the country.

Our wedding barn is registered for civil ceremonies, meaning you can have the convenience of ceremony and reception all in one place.
Our barn is fully self-contained with its own bar, restrooms and garden.

We have 8 large en-suite rooms (2 accessible) to accommodate you and your guests (and can recommend additional accommodation nearby).

Additionally, we have a charming country pub, The Flying Fish, on site, giving you and your guests options to explore throughout the day.

The Ceremony

We are registered for civil ceremonies and welcome couples to think of our barn as a blank canvas, ready to be styled into your perfect venue.

With seating for up to 100 guests to enjoy your ceremony, The Flying Fish Wedding Barn lends itself to a variety of decorating styles and themes.

For official ceremony details, you’ll need to discuss this with our local county council representative.

Food & Bubbles

We offer a choice of wedding breakfast menus to choose from, both hot and cold, buffet style and table service.  The menus encompass traditional and modern European cuisine as well as our signature exotic, authentic Caribbean dishes from the islands of Jamaica, Barbados, St Lucia and Trinidad.

The Flying Fish Wedding Barn is dedicated to serving only the freshest food.  We use seasonal ingredients, sourced locally from the farms around us.

Match these delightful dishes with our wide array of wines and beers and you have a banquet fit for a truly memorable occasion!
