The food although very nice and filling it was a bit over priced for homestyle cooking and were quite shocked to have paid $5 for a glass of coke!!!!. We choose this place because it looked like a nice family style restaurant to eat, our toddler was given colouring in pencils and paper to keep him entertained while we waited... More

Took my children to the Barn for a late breakfast/early lunch. Fantastic chef made me a meal from the specials board. Rolled stuffed pork belly. It was delicious - pork was perfectly cooked and crackling was amazing. My children also enjoyed their meals and ate every last bite. Thanks for a great experience. Will be back as I need to...

We dined at the Barn straight off the late ferry from Wellington. The meals were large hearty fare. Plenty of home style choices just what we were after. The atmosphere was Cosy and with heaps of eclectic paraphernalia decorating the walls. Plenty to look at. Child friendly as they adapted a meal to suit us. I would highly recommend if... More

A young friendly waitress welcomed us as we came into the restaurant. We enjoyed sitting in this cosy place with many things to look at. My friend had the Ribeye which she said was perfectly cooked. And it was no problem to get veggies instead of fries to the steak. I have had the battered blue cod. Yammy! We would... More

Despite a mix up with our order the staff were friendly and apologetic doing everything they could to promptly fix the problem. When we got our meal it was all we hoped for good fresh veg, tender tasty meat and generous serves. We recommend the Barn as a friendly and comfortable environment, with good staff and good food!

Had a stop over here while transferring from CapeAir to the train so stopped in for lunch. There are plenty of options and my fish and chips were quite good and the beer nice and cold. There's an old upright piano so you can tickle the ivories for some entertainment.
