Visited for lunch as we have done a couple of times before. As usual we were delighted by the welcome, the service and the ambience. The food was a 3 and the rest raised the overall score to a 4. Disappointed with the chicken wing starter (very sweet) and the strange mushroom starter. The mains were ok pub grub.

We often pop in to the Barn Owl while passing through Kingskerswell, as it has a nice atmosphere and tasty food. The staff always have a friendly manner, and service is very good. Probably best to book if dining later in the evening, as it is normally pretty busy. Prices are about right, and portions are just a little on... More

We've visited regularly over the past few years. For the money the portions are fair and the food really good. It is what it is. Good pub food. The staff are really great and attentive and we always get a warm welcome.

Unbelievable. Service in the manager was dreadful. Poor range of food available because they said was too busy night before. Portions were tiny for price as the group of 6 still had stop at fast food place on way home as not fulfilled. Pudding was one scoop of ice cream and 3inch x 3inch waffle for over £5! Thought we...

We visited the Barn Owl today for my mother-in-law's birthday, and it could not have been better. Fantastic welcome, lovely interior, food and drink both great. I would not hesitate to recommend. I have no idea which restaurant the 26 people who have left 'terrible' reviews have been eating in, but you really should try this place for lunch yourself.

We enjoyed our experience here so much two years ago that we made a point of coming back for my birthday dinner. The manageress remembered us and had made a point of putting balloons on my chair! The service was as friendly and informative as ever and the specials were all very tempting. The building is very attractive inside and... More

Excellent food (both in terms of quality and choice). Very quick service too. I had the sweet potato burger and my partner had a pie. We both loved our meals so much that we returned to the pub the next day.

Very biased towards this pub as it's a HALL & WOODHOUSE pub and they are usually second to none in my opinion-The pub has the feel of a country pub but in reality is only a couple of hundred yards off of the busy Torquay main road. The Real Ale is always kept to perfection and there is a good... More
