A character pub restaurant centrally located with free parking adjacent in the evening and weekends. Privately owned and operated since 1992.In addition to the excellent food and drink at great value prices, we are proud of our very friendly staff, which combined with the ‘barn’ character setting and decor makes us a special place for a meal in our lovely air conditioned Grill restaurant, or a drink and snack in our air conditioned bar and conservatory.Enjoy a drink or snack in our delightful garden, sunny during the day, heated for those cooler days and beautifully illuminated by night.Our philosophy is "to serve freshly prepared food, using high quality raw materials at unbeatable prices."The restaurant menu has evolved over recent years, taking account of fashion changes and is based on grills and Mediterranean specialities. We have a great reputation for steaks, using only prime 28 day matured British beef.We cater for weddings and have a civil ceremony licence, and private parties.

We had our Wedding last Sunday 13th July, what an absolutely beautiful venue, which in turn gave us an amazing day. Everything ran like clockwork, from the numerous emails between myself and Janet, and Philippe and his fantastic team went above and beyond decorating the whole venue according to my instructions and even made it look more beautiful than I...

There is nothing better than seeing the brides face when she arrives on the day of her wedding to see The Barn 'dressed' with her decorations and finishing touches, so I am so pleased that you felt it looked more beautiful than you could ever imagine! The Barn truly did look amazing and your flowers were just beautiful! Thank you... More

For the majority of the meal my partner and I were alone in the restaurant which was lovely. The waiter was very attentive and the food was yummy! There was A LOT of food on the plate though which, unfortunately I wasn't able to finish. Well worth a visit, to this high quality affordable restaurant.

Just back from lunch. Not packed out! Food o.k. Presentation o.k Drink prices o.k. The big problem is that you are cast away at 3.0pm sharp! Lovely and infrequent warm summers day, ideal for garden resting but at 3.0pm sharp, the loo is closed, the gates are locked and you are cast away! Coffee though is good. What a shame;... More

I very much regret that you felt that you were “cast away” at 3 p.m. on the particular day you lunched with us – I apologise for this. We have, in the past, opened all day but found that from Monday to Thursday there was insufficient business to justify keeping staff on duty in the afternoon and, therefore, we only... More

Sitting in here as I write this, the mussels were awesome, not sure if it's just a Wednesday thing but definitely worth it either way. Service is pretty good and the staff are friendly. San Miguel on tap is a bonus, would have preferred a good IPA though :) 4/5 because its a pub not a restaurant.

Great to hear you found our mussels to be awesome!! Mussels are available everyday in our bar and restaurant, but on Wednesdays we now offer a selection of 11 different mussel dishes to choose from. Next time you visit, please try our Penhurst Pale Ale made by local brewer Pig and Porter. Thank you very much for your great rating,... More

We recently went as a family and were able to enjoy some of the burgers from the special world cup menu, what a great idea! The food was great and generous portions. Our waiter was very friendly and helpful. A very enjoyable evening.

I’m afraid I can’t take the credit for the World Cup burger menu, Michelle, this was down to our Head Chef Jon! These proved to be so popular, we are just about to launch a new burger specials menu which will include some of our customers favourites from the World Cup. It is always nice to hear when guests have... More
