I have had several meals here over the years, through at least 3 changes of ownership. The Barn is still a great place for a meal. Good wine, good food, well cooked. Friendly unrushed atmosphere.

The Ferry arrived at 6am and we went in search of an early morning Eatery. DA's Barn was open and breakfast was being served. Good hot flavoursome coffee, homestyle bacon & eggs, toast and jams Portions were generous, service was prompt and price was reasonable.

Everything cooked so well. Great service. Their Fried Chicken is absolutely hands down the best I've ever had. Juicy, really crunchy and just blew my mind. Had it twice in our 1 day stay it was that good.
