Hearty food

After hearing good things about this place, decided to stop off for a spot lunch. Arrived to find a nearly full car park, truly a good sign.

The food is all freshly made from the grill, or that day for other meals. It is tasty, the choice is good, the service is excellent and the price is reasonable. We have eaten there more than once and not been disappointed any time. Recommended.

The young lady on the counter looked like she had just got out of bed and really could not be bothered with us. Anyway, we ordered tea and toast for my husband and coffee for myself. There was gluten free goods available but only bought in. The young lady on the coffee machine made up for the first person and... More

This is a pleasant, clean place to visit. My other half enjoyed his lasagne but it took too long for his coffee to arrive. I was disappointed in the chicken, it was ok but felt I could have popped one of those supermarket prepared trays into the oven for the same result, soft peas and tired potatoes completed the meal....

We have stopped off at Kilnford three times and find it quite pleasant. I must say I do find the food service procedure / menu placement a little unclear so perhaps there's room for improvement there. Our most recent visit was on our way home at the end of a long drive home from holidays. We have two very young... More

My first visit to the restaurant at Kilnford Barns although I have visited the retail shop previously. Our visit was in the evening and as I had heard good reports about the food I was looking forward to trying it out. We were greeted by a sign stating it was a burger night so everything was served in a bun... More

What a wonderful organic farm shop. The food choices are incredible: fruit & veg, meats and cheeses, pies, fresh flowers, jams & chutneys, candles, celebration cards and other craft fayre. Some samples are available to try. We bought fruit (giant oranges - so sweet and juicy, the best we have ever tasted), local bacon (which was delish and didn't leave... More

This is a very popular restaurant, the staff are good and the food is pretty average. The one thing that I don't like is the noise. What with wooden ( beautiful ) chairs and the large area, the sound of conversation and chairs being moved around is quite off-putting.

Been coming to kilnford since it opened. I reckon 95% of our visits have been thoroughly enjoyable, GREAT food, great service, great staff etc. BUT it's that other 5% that let it down, seems like total chaos, very noisy and food not up to usual high standards. HOWEVER, I for one will NOT allow myself to be put off because... More

Visited yesterday for lunch with a friend. Before going into restaurant we had a look round shop. Not sure why salad items such as lettuce were all from England, when this is supposed to be a local farm shop? I manage to grow lovely lettuce in my garden at home. Anyway, then onto restaurant. As others have said, we found... More
