I enjoy stopping over at Barney's. It's a quaint location and relaxed atmosphere. I ordered the soup of the day (Tomato soup with cheese biscuits). It took over 40 minutes and asking several times before the soup finally arrived, with baguette slices instead of biscuits (no explanation given), no butter and no side plate. Place wasn't busy, only 3 tables... More

Right off the Nyeri-Nanyuki highway, Barneys is a great location for a anyone who's in need of a stop over. The food is amazing especially the honey-glazed pork steak. Very friendly staff and offers a relaxed alternative if you are traveling by road. There's also a children's playground so kids can enjoy the swings while the parents take a break.... More

The facility has great menu. The location is fantastic (By the roadside, next to an airstrip). The staff were friendly and helpful. The meal was well worth the money. I would definitely have more stopovers.

This is the place to stop in this area. Quaint and full of pilots (small plane and choppers), the British Army and tourists, it is a great spot to sit and soak up the local environs. The food is delicious and the quantities are big. Coffees and milk shakes are delicious. Look on the Specials Board as there are always... More
