Having visited last month, I'd have to agree with other diners, the place is very small and one waitress tried hard to serve a full restaurant. The food was average and did not live up to expectation. I really can see what this place is trying to do, but maybe a rethink on fine dining would be sensible.

I’ve eaten several times at Barretts in the past but it’s always been the lunch menu. Last night we tried the evening spring menu. My initial thoughts are to stick to the lunch menu because for £10 for 3 courses you just can’t go wrong. The evening menu does not seem to be value for money when you compare it... More

A small place and is somewhere that has tried hard to create a cosy dining experience. We had the taster menu and unfortunately the food wasn't to our liking. The waitress was working hard on her own to serve all the customers but the seven courses were very delayed and in the end we left before the courses were all... More

Visited with friends for an evening meal. The place is small, nicely decrorated with a good atmosphere. the lone waitress just about managed to cope and could probably have benefited with an assistant. I started with the Wood Pigeon, it came rare and chewy, I'm not sure if this bird is always served rare, if it is maybe the waitress... More

We dined at Barretts bistro on Friday 20th June and had the 7 course taster menu as part of the Amazon offer. Each course was well presented and delicious. We particularly enjoyed the lamb and the chocolate fondant (although we expected the fondant to be more gooey inside).The service was friendly and attentive. As you bring your own wine, the... More

We visited on the 4th June for the 7 course taster menu which I bought on an Amazon offer. The food was absolutely fantastic and great value too. Every course was delicious with particular highlights being the fish course and the pudding. It was our second time at Barretts and it won't be our last - we've just booked to... More

Lovely intimate restaurant with friendly staff. Felt the food a little lacking. Ordered sea bass which came with a small amount of cubed potatoes & a few slivers of cabbage but on waiting the arrival of vegetables was informed there were none! My companions chose different fayre & we were all disappointed at what we felt was an incomplete meal.... More

We visited Barretts on the 30th May for the 7 course taster menu (Amazon offer). We were a party of ten friends, majority of which are self proclaimed 'foodies' with healthy appetites! It has to be said that we all had a fantastic time. The food was delicious, with imaginative variations using what you could tell were very fresh and... More

We dined at Barrett's last night with friends. This was our first visit. It is a lovely, unpretentious bistro with a warm welcome. The service was excellent and the food even better. Not huge portions but more than enough, and the presentation of the food was great. Others have said this is Michelin star quality at affordable prices and I... More
