Unique wee place

This was a great wee find. Only thing that was missing was a wee park or something to entertain the kids. I had the burger which was lovely and my partner had steak which was lovely. Would definitely recommend and will be back to sample some more.

Had a great breakfast , the black pudding was to die for, only criticism was that one of our friends is glutton intolerant and as it I is a farm shop we thought the sausages and black pudding should have been glutton free saying that they did have glutton free bread. We definitely eat here again.

We visited last year and had a great experience at the barn so was a tough act to follow. Well I have to say was even better. We shared the platter, every piece of it was delicious, the scotch egg was amazing even down to the olives in oil. Of course the main event of sirloin did not disappoint travelled... More

What a lovely find on our day out. The Steak barn offered great service, lovely food and a quirky atmosphere. Would thoroughly recommend coming for a bite to eat here.

If you're a foodie, you'll love this farmshop - full of local wares. The butcher has a great selection. I always go for the fresh eggs and come away with much much more.

Visited Balgove Larder today and was very unimpressed with the staff and regulations of the restaurant. My partner and I chose the special sandwich of the day which was a Thai Chicken mayo on sourdough bread. I have a bad allergy to nuts and I would never have expected a sandwich/mayonnaise-based filler to contain nuts. However, I was mistaken. On... More
