Channels Essex Barn

Channels Essex Barn is a period open beamed barn suitable for medium and large Wedding functions and birthdays. I have been the DJ there at a number of wedding receptions and birthday celebrations. After a great party this weekend felt compelled to write a review.

Channels Essex Barn layout

Enter the large impressive main hall of Channels Essex Barn and gaze around at huge beams and exposed woodwork. Cast your eyes over  plenty of soft lighting and large suspended Gothic chandeliers. There’s a spacious dance floor area placed in front of an alcove where your DJ can set up. Ample space awaits for your band if you are having live entertainment.

At the far end of the hall you have a generous sized bar. Because it’s far enough away from the music you can comfortably chat,  within the same room so that you are still part of the party. To one side of the room there’s an obscured area where the buffet is served, to the other more seating. Walk through French Doors which lead on to a patio area with seating and lawn area.

Channels Essex Barn Buffet

At Channels Essex Barn the service and staff were absolutely brilliant. The buffet, which was hot, consisted of  a mouth watering chicken curry, lasagna, fresh whole dressed salmon, new potatoes and a selection of salads. Sumptuous deserts included apple pie and custard, and Eaton Mess.

Channels Essex Barn Review

Channels Weddings

To summarize, Channels Essex Barn definitely has the ‘Wow Factor’. For me it ticks all the necessary boxes to ensure your party is as good as it can possibly be. Book a viewing and you will not be disappointed. Always inquire about prices for mid week weddings and see how much you can save.

Make sure you look at my Gallery which shows my photos and reviews of other desireable wedding venues in Essex.
