My partner and I had an amazing meal at the barn owl. The food was great and the atmosphere was so friendly. Our server Debbie was an angel and extremely attentive. Definitely the best place in kingsway for a proper pub meal.More

Great meal enjoyed the festive menu and the service from Debbie was excellent. Meal was plentiful and didn't take long to arrive. Would recommend the pigs in blankets.

We were greeted by Christian! What are charming gentleman! Nothing was too much trouble and he even recommended some really dishes to us. These were cooked perfect, it's not often people can get a blue steak correct. We were visiting the area and a friend...recommended the pub to us. We will return when in the area soon.More

We visited this pub as we are fans of Marstons pubs and the fact it is 2 for 1 made it even better. The food and service were superb, nothing was too much trouble. The kids haven't stopped asking about when we are going back...so well done Barn Owl, you have pleased two little ones :) We will be back soon.More

I wouldn’t call it a play area, there is a tiny corner that has 2 of them wire things with the beads on, a claw machine that you have to pay for & a few of them boards on the wall with the pieces of wood that you move around... More
