Entertaining with Food & Flair

The Chopping Block at Crockwell Farm

Set against a backdrop of rolling South Northamptonshire countryside and undiscovered lanes, lies Crockwell. Located close to the Oxfordshire and Warwickshire borders and within easy access of both the M40 and M1 motorways, Crockwell is a unique and incredibly flexible family run venue offering exclusive use for your wedding over three days with a very personal approach.

Because Crockwell is so unique, we are aware that our caterer has to exceed our clients’ expectations in both their expertise and their approach to planning the menu with our clients, and producing fantastic catering on the day.

For these reasons we have selected The Chopping Block as our caterers. The Chopping Block are recognised as one of the Midlands premiere catering companies, renowned for stunning food and excellent service. As a family run business, they are both small enough to care, and big enough to deal with large numbers, offering everything from the elegantly simple through to extravagant fine dining. The Chopping Block will work with you to develop a tasty, locally sourced menu that will be freshly cooked here at Crockwell for very competitive rates.

Weddings are our speciality; we have been established since 2002, and are now considered by many to be one of the leading bespoke venues in the midlands. We have grown gradually while retaining our enthusiasm for each occasion; every wedding is different!

We can cater for weddings parties from twenty up to two hundred. The farm cottages house nine en-suite bedrooms with scope to accommodate up to twenty-eight guests overnight. Our extensive gardens provide stunning surroundings for outside ceremonies, entertaining and photographs or just relaxing.
