Had a breakfast with friends this morning. The generous portions are clearly an emphasis on quantity not quality as the breakfast was mediocre at best.. The food was served cold. The one order was incorrect and was an issue to get it corrected. The service is super slow and the wait staff need a red bull or two. Pity as... More

The outing is nice for Kids, it's a must see. The restaurants though are very dirty. Lots of flies as well. Food are average, no nice dishes for a hot summer day, all stews etc. Staff are friendly. Next time we'll rather buy eats from the shop and have a nice picnic on their lawn.

Being part of a large gathering, we were seated under the oaks at The Barn, where children can run freely and play on the grass. We arrived hungry, and started with chips and a cheese platter. The platter was well stocked with cheeses, onion marmalade, citrus jam, cold meats, biscuits, bread and butter. I ordered a macchiato – which was... More

We had brunch at this restaurant and say outdoors. The buffet inside was beautifully appointed with one table of fresh yogurt and fruit with granola, strawberry syrup, honey, and other sweet offerings. The next table held a variety of scones, muffins, croissants, with strawberry jam and real butter. They also had two cheeses and a deli meat of some sort.... More

Me and my Fiancé went to The Barn restaurant to celebrate he birthday in Oct 2015. First think that caught my eye was the great environment and setting that Irene Farm is located in. Lush green lawns and BIG trees. There was two warm starters and a big selection of salads (very nice potato salad). For the main course there... More

Having booked at this restaurant for Sunday lunch for a special occasion I was hopeful that the event would be memorable. It was, but for all the wrong reasons. The venue is lovely, situated under the oak tress on a working dairy farm in the heart of the suburbs. However, the cuisine on offer fell far short of expectations and... More
