My wife took me here for lunch the other day as a treat and we really enjoyed it. We have been to the Wooden Barn on several occasions to see live music and had always had an enjoyable time; I didn't realise that they had a café too (lunchtime and afternoon till early evening). The food was all delicious, light... More

We visited here for a stand-up comedy show and really enjoyed the intimacy of the venue. We also returned for lunch in the adjoining restaurant which was also very good. Quite an impressive venue for such a small community!

We were at a friends wedding last weekend, great little venue with plenty of character. Food was delicious, and staff were friendly, what more could you ask for? Would recommend to anyone.

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.

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
