Our annual trip to Barend gets better each year. Gary and Leslie work hard to improve the bar each time we visit, the new decor in the bar and restaurant is lovely. The staff are welcoming and there's a great atmosphere too. The food was fantastic, quick to arrive and excellent quality and value. Thank you to Gary and Leslie... More
