They have a varied and interesting menu and everything we had was well presented and well cooked. Staff were very pleasant and helpful The whole place is... 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.

Having read many positive reviews, we were looking forward to a nice lunch at Woodend Barn with our 3 months old baby. Although there were several free tables we had to wait to be seated for quite a while. The table surface was sticky and full of bread crumbs. The waitress took no notice of this and put the menus...

We went to see a play here and our party was also provided a light dinner. The play was fantastic and the seating comfortable... although a bit crowded. The food was good... it made for a very pleasant evening.

We had reserved a table for 8 pn and arrived a few minutes early. No-one greeted us on arrival and we went un-noticed for about 10 minutes. We waited on the sofa, our friends had not arrived yet so we were not in a hurry to be seated. Eventually, a waitress spotted us. We could forgive this lack of attention,... More

It is always a pleasure to visit the Woodend Barn for lunch. The soups never fail to impress me (the chowder was excellent on a previous visit) and their sourdough breads are just wonderful. They always mange to serve my latte piping hot and no coffee is complete without a pice of homemade cake- the lemon slice is a particular... More

This was my second time at the Woodend Barn. The Setting is amazing within the fields and inside the decor is interesting. I liked this. The Menu had a choice for everyone at a reasonable price. My only complaint for this occasion was that I on ordering our food I asked if I could have my chicken grilled as I... More

The Woodend Barn is an arts venue just outside Banchory. Buchanan's is the attached restaurant. Living at the other end of the country, I rarely get a chance to visit the Woodend Barn but make a point of doing so every time I go north. I am on the mailing list and receive regular updates on their programme of events.... More
