Wroxham Barns is one of Norfolk's leading tourist attractions. With its accent firmly on quality and with strong green credentials, it manages that really rather rare thing - of appealing to different ages. Grown-ups enjoy pottering around the shops and workshops, often chatting to the artists themselves or stopping to watch a craftsman create something unique. With a wood turner, stained glass specialist and Chris Hutchins from Norfolk Sketches, you will find the gift that is just that bit special. Fashion lovers should seek out the Gallery where labels such as Seasalt, Ness and Steilmann are on offer along sidehand bags, scarves, hats and more. And Sugar and Spice offers quirky children's pieces which are much more fun than items offered in the High Street. Foodie lovers are especially well catered for as the Pantry is packed with delicious food, much sourced locally so you can stock up your own store cupboards with jams, chutneys, oils,wines and more.

Whoever dreamed up the Soup and Sandwich Lunch deserves a medal. Today's soup was Pea & Mint and it was fantastic. Served with a big enough sandwich and crisps with salad, it filled a big hole on a damp miserable day. Lovely ambience in the restaurant and fair prices. Great Job. Thanks.

Even with bad weather you can still enjoy Wroxham Barns, plenty to do for adults and children. As we went in November the weather wasn't too good but we still enjoyed it.

Good range of food which can be pre-ordered for groups, several small workshops and little outlets where by you could easily spend a couple of hours.

There are some absolute gems hidden away here. The sewing/knitting shop and the cider shop (with freetasters) are worth a visit!

Visited today, this was my second visit. Plenty of free parking. I thought a lot of the merchandise was expensive. The children's rides and amusements were a reasonable price.

Sometimes happens that we will get a run of two or three reviews which will pick up on the same theme. To reiterate my response to f1n0, we are happy to stand up to other similar retail outlets and attractions…it is hard to respond to a sweeping “whole place is over-priced”. Many reviews and 34 years of locals supporting us... More

We ate there for lunch with it being the half term break, the pantry must have been full of children. The place was a mess, with dirty floors and tables. The staff were very polite, but all We could eat was a twice cooked potato which had that really odd taste potato that's irony and over cooked. I had tuna,... More

We will always accept reviews at face value and learn where we can. We certainly had a very busy half term = full of children on occasions. Inevitably little ones will make a mess and we will try and clear up as fast as we can. Could we have done more? Probably and lesson learnt in terms of staff rota.... More

Visited Wroxham Barns with my mother-in-law, father-in-law and my little girl (who will be 1 in a couple of weeks time). We visited the attraction purely for the Junior Farm experience (although I have visited the shops on previous visits and they were wonderful). The Junior Farm was fantastic fun for us all, not just for my daughter! The animals... More
