I visited this locaiton as part of a wider corporate event. It's location is fantastic with great views over the surrounding area. Parking is fantastic with loads of space on busy days. The on-site restaurant was busy and offered a range of treats, although I was unable to try any due to time restrictions. The actual event I was attending... More

Although difficult to get a seat sometimes ( but that is a good sign) the food is worth the visit. It is high quality and I like that you can view the kitchen from the tables - it looks well maintained and professional. The cakes and breads are wonderful. The meal in a bowl soup is great! Good service too.

Woodend Barn is in a beautiful location, on a good day (and we do get lots in the NE) you get a lovely view from the restaurant across the hills just outside Banchory. I have been a couple for times for coffee and for lunch and both times it has been lovely. Its well laid out with tables outside and... More

Great meal for our group of friends,the salmon in butter sauce was scrumptious. Good service from friendly attentive staff with timely hot servings for all. Table was candle lit creating cosy atmosphere. All good except it felt like a bit of a rush to get rid of us around 9.30pm by switching some of the lights off.

The Barn is a fabulous venue which holds an amazing variety of events from very young til very old. Comedy, theatre, music, drama, dance. Keep up the good work. Buchanans restaurant next door is a gem.
