We stayed in a brand new King room. Spotlessly clean with a very high end finish. We had a dream meal at the Steakhouse restaurant. We ate entirely fish dishes and they were delicious. Good wine menu reasonably priced. Lovely location we booked by chance....More

Staff all treated us with a warm welcome, choice of local beers was great and the food was absolutely outstanding! Quite expensive to feed two people but despite that, I'll still return when next in the area.

We select the best export quality beef available in the country. Our preference is for beef that is finished on grass as this provides meat with maximum flavor, just as nature intended. What we do differently at the Barn is that we age our beef on the premises for 8 weeks or longer. When you consider the work, the cost, the waste, is it really worthwhile to age beef for a long time? Most people and places say beef is aged when it is two weeks old. Like great wines that improve for 50 years, great beef gets sweeter, more tender and acquires a taste that cannot be duplicated except with proper aging.
