Tithe Barn and Painted Hall

Dating from 1390, The Tithe Barn was painstakingly dismantled from its original site within Surrey and re-built at Great Fosters in the 1930s. It provides an unusual and romantic setting for a wedding with exposed vaulted English oak beams and a Minstrels’ Gallery.

The Tithe Barn accommodates up to 180 guests on round tables. We can accommodate up to 250 guests in total for an evening reception after the wedding breakfast.
