Excellent curries, hearty soups, good value for money and good coffee - licensed. Rest of the menu offer ample choices, for the hungry as well as the "not so hungry"- friendly and efficient service

We stopped here twice, that's how good it is. The décor is eclectic and welcoming and the menu has a wide range of choices. The service is excellent and the home made soup and olive bread is wonderful. We chatted for ages with the owner and left having made another new friend in Barrydale. Don't miss this stop either.

We passed through Barrydale around lunch time on a Sunday afternoon. We quickly looked at the Tripadvisor restaurants, and then started looking for the familiar names. Jam Tarts looked very inviting with its colorful exterior. My son ate a pizza, which was quite big and very tasty. I chose the beef pie on advice from our very friendly waiter. It... More

I've just read Caro-Waffles review a few below and it made me chuckle - "it's a bit like eating lunch at a cross between a charity shop and a WI meeting". Brilliant, that description hits the nail on the head. It's quirky, well put together and the wood-fired pizza selection is just the job for a speedy lunch. We too... More

Jam Tarts is a must when passing through, the difference here is the food is made with love, creative and just SCRUMPTIOUS...compared to all the other restaurants in the same road, which generally get used by the larger buss groups ensuring a commercial atmosphere. What a please is it to sit in the small garden and enjoy a cold frosty.... More

I think it's the inviting sign that draws you in as you come around the bend on the highway, and you think hey, this is as good a place as any to take a quick rest :) The place is interesting inside - it has small knick knacks from all over the place and makes for an interesting look while...
