Visited, again and was delighted, again! Great food,, good service. So friendly. I can not find anything to fault and think that the fact that I keep returning says it all really! Thank you!

Thank you again Paul for taking the time to review us. It is lovely to still hear such positive feedback because it would be so easy to become complacent with regular customers. Love serving you whether with friends or family and looking forward to the next time!xx More

I recently came here for someone's birthday meal out and it was amazing. It had my gran written all over it so had to take her there for her birthday - she loved the touch of the personalised menu! We have just returned and again was spot on. The service was great, even the chef popped out to see how... More

Thank you Ellen for reviewing us after your experience last night and I hope Marjorie enjoyed her meal. I am so shocked that that was your dad!! I had you at around the same age!!

Haven't written a review in a while but this must be our 10th visit to the Barn - food fantastic along with the service - nothing is too much trouble! Always a warm welcome and the staff can't do enough - if you love home cooked food and deserts this is the place to go! Love the Irish nights with... More

I take it this must be Tommy's table and co!! Thank you so much for such kind but unexpected words. The next Irish night is at the end of March, it is booked but we haven't had time to start advertising yet but hopefully you might be able to come and sit at your usual table. I will start warming...

Just been for a fantastic meal at the Alford barn in the small restaurant part. Fire was lit and we where only one of just 3 tables. We had an amazing meal. What made it all the more enjoyable was the friendly warm welcome from the owners After the meal we had a lovely chat with the owners who made... More

Thank you for taking the time to review your evening at the Barn. Fran and Dave enjoyed speaking to you too, but it is a huge relief that you didn't have a meal in their 'real' front room....Dave would have got you and him splattered with his private stash of whisky!! Looking forward to seeing you again soon. More

Having driven past The Barn at Alfold hundreds of times I was pleased that a cousin arranged a Sunday lunch there for us. And what a terrific surprise it was: I'd assumed it was 'just' a pub but (as far as I can tell) it's a great restaurant. Long story short: brilliant atmosphere; tables nicely spaced from each other; BIG... More

Steve, thank you for your review although I have to admit I found it a bit tricky!! Using long words like 'elucidate', mixed in with text talk like BTW really had me foxed.

Visited The Barn on a cold sleety damp Saturday evening. A Valentines night out for my wife and I. As always the premises were warm and inviting.....with a blazing fire in the bar area and snugly warm in restuarant. Friendly greeting and quickly shown table and offered drinks upon arrival. Excellent varied menu, and will adapt to individual needs if... More

This was our third visit to the Barn and it was another excellent meal. Despite being only our third visit, the owner recognised us and welcomed us warmly. My wife managed to get the last portion of pork - a huge chunk of meat which was delicious and which she really enjoyed. My son and I had the beef. I... More

Family of 5 in town for a family funeral. We called at 6.30 and we're told we could get a table at the bar at 8.15. Impressive for a Saturday night.

Thank you for reviewing the Barn especially considering you are travelling back to America and also had the stress of a funeral. Really pleased that you enjoyed your meal even though I wasn't sure that you would be able to stay awake throughout because you all looked so exhausted.

The only thing that spoilt it was that one piece of pork shoulder was a large chunk about an inch and a half thick. I was told that their customers like their meat cut in chunks. Personally I didn't find it appealing at all.
