Generous Light Bites

Had lunch with a friend here during the early part of the week. Not been for a few years so was keen to go back and give it a try. Quiet which I believe is unusual as told you normally need to reserve a table. Ordered from the light bites menu, chicken in a peppercorn sauce with sauteed potatoes... read more

It is a lunch time haunt for a friend and myself who meet up here on a regular basis. We can spend 2 hours talking non-stop and catching up with each other's news in comfort and with the knowledge that we will not be pressurized to drink and eat up and get out. The staff are always friendly and helpful... More

Seems there is always a wedding going on here! Food is good and often if ealry evening the service is good and quick. Not amazing, but above average, prices can be a little steep if it's busy.

We have visited The Barns many times for casual lunches, dinners and special occasion meals. The food has always been great and they always have a great selection of real ales too. Keep up the good work!

We visited this site on the 31st of January for a family lunch. The menu is not extensive but was certainly fine for me. In many respects a short menu has a lot going for against an extensive menu where the chef/ cooks may struggle with ingredients, timings et al. The only negative was that the vegetables whilst plenty in... More

This restaurant is an excellent choice to celebrate a special occasion. Settings both inside and outside are very pleasant.The menu is varied and caters for several special diets. The food is very well cooked and attention to presentation is obvious. Many varied starts and sweets are on the menu with prices well within the average persons pocket
