We had dinner from the early bird menu. The food was delicious and the service good, we were allowed relax between courses which was great. Very busy restaurant so booking required. The Manager/Owner came around to every table, which was a lovely touch and much appreciated by customers. Will defiantly be back very soon.

Brought my mother here for her birthday and was not disappointed. The service is a little slow pace but it seems more by design than an error. The staff were quite friendly and made us all feel welcome. The food is definitely the star of the show. The best way to describe it would be gourmet homely food. Highly recommend.

I was here recently with a large group of family and friends. I hadn't been here for many years. The staff were superbly efficient and attentive and couldn't have looked after us better. The place is a bit dated but that actually adds to its charm. The food was absolutely delicious and I don't think there was an empty plate... More

I had the pleasure of dining at the Barn restaurant. I had a lovely 3 course meal which consisted of a beautiful smoked salmon starter followed by a delicious steak as my main course. I particularly loved the desert trolley which had so many lovely deserts on offer. The place was impeccably clean. The lovely lady owner gave each table... More

Great menu and staff very friendly. Have been here a good few times and would never tire of eating at the Barn. They were doing some re-construction also when I was there last.

I understand how difficult it must be to maintain standards while undergoing renovations but please, please, get rid of the hanging cobwebs in the bathroom area. Absolutely no excuse acceptable for this. The food itself was good, steaks were nicely cooked but my gratin potatoes consistent of one teaspoon sized portion, which was lukewarm. The surface of the table was... More

We met with family and friends to catch up on life. While the Restraunt is undergoing a full refurbishment you would never feel as if any of the changes were impacting on service and quails. We selected from the four course menu. Some chose duck, fish with a great selection of veg. I went for the sirloin. Not disappointed at... More
