Visited Barretts on recommendation from friends and reviews on Trip Advisor. Fancied trying somewhere a little different that was small and friendly. E mailed via web site and had a reply confirming booking for the Saturday night. There are only 6 tables but don't let that put you off. The food is some of the best my partner and I... More

We love Barretts & have eaten there on many occasions & also love their bowl suppers (fantastic alternative to take-aways!). But on this occasion (my parents golden wedding anniversary) we wanted to celebrate at home with family (13 people) but enjoy restaurant quailty food so we booked Barretts Bespoke catering. We discussed with James what we wanted - a buffet... More

I loved this tiny little bistro, the food was wonderful and the service was personal and very attentive without being intrusive. The menu was short which is always a plus in my view and the dishes well described. We were a party of 5 including my 15 and 11 year old children. The chef was great and made sure everyone... More

Have been here many times and really like the small, friendly atmosphere of the bistro. The food is excellent and very different to the usual 'run of the mill' stuff. Last time we went we had the Taster menu which was amazing. I have never had a chocolate dessert like it! If you don't like small restaurants then Barrett's isn't... More

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
