Extremely tasty

We went to the steak barn again for my husbands 40th birthday with friends. The rib eye steaks were delicious as were the chips and sides. The food and drinks and very reasonably priced and we love the quirkiness of the surroundings! Highly recommend this to all steak lovers.

I went here yesterday with a dear friend. It is a bustling organic farm shop with amazing cafe. After wandering around the food aisles peering at unusual jams, preserves and produce, we were so starving we sat down for a quick coffee. Well, having seen the delicious array of home cooked foods waft past our noses we decided on a... More

Top Class Food to eat on site or take out. Enjoyed a really scrumptious breakfast in Balgrove which consisted of local produce. Wonderful selection of meats, cheeses, salads etc from their deli. Shop also stocks wide range of chutneys, relishes, dressings, jams, wines and locally produced fruit and vegetables. Don't miss it. We only discovered it at the end of... More

We visited the Steak Barn at Balgove Larder for a birthday dinner. With no bookings allowed we were initially apprehensive about waiting for up to an hour for a table but when we arrived we were seated immediately, even though it was very busy. The tables are long, communal dining hall style but this suits the informal surroundings and didn't... More

I visited with family was told abruptly to wait until staff could sort a table for us although there were several tables cleared and free. The double doors were wide open and I asked twice to have them closed as there was a cold breeze blowing in. They were eventually closed for approx 10 mins and then opened again ....... More

1st visit to the steak barn was a bit disappointing, ordered my steak medium rare and it came completely cooked through, with no pink at all. Sent it back and staff were apologetic but it took about 25 minutes for the replacement, marred the meal as my boyfriend had finished his meal by the time mine arrived. Second visit was... More

We always call in to balgove for a cooked breakfast before we travel home from st Andrews. The food is delicious and there is also the delicatessen which sells a vast amount of delicious produce for sale. We love their butcher meat. Definitely worth a visit.

Called in here for coffee and a scone as we have done in the past. I had coffee here a Cole of weeks ago and it was pretty strong so today I asked for a pot of hot water sonI could dilute it down a bit. This is a really nice restaurant where we have enjoyed some great food. But... More

We popped in for brunch yesterday before heading back down South and are very glad we did. Got there at 10:30 and the place was quite busy. Met up with other family members who had booked the table. Between us we had full breakfast and Eggs Benedict and both were beautiful. The children breakfast was just as hearty and the... More
