Food allergies: wheat, sugar, milk, soy, corn, vinegar, fermented food. The server was gracious and did not allow my apologies for my restrictions. The chefs were rock stars!

Enjoyed a romantic dinner here with my husband. Being from Manhattan we can be spoiled foodies. This was very good. We shared the heirloom tomato buffalo motzeralla salad and beef tar tar. Both very delicious, although felt like there could have been more motzeralla on the salad as it was more like a foam then cheese. Beef tar tar was... More

The first time we ate at the BF, we didn't have a reservation and enjoyed some delicious prawns at the bar. The second time was for an anniversary dinner and we had a reservation. The service was great, and the food fantastic. Then we found out the room service for the Willows Lodge is from BF!!!! So lunch, brunch, dinners... More

Very good food for a lot less than The Herbfarm next door. The steak was excellent. Outdoor seating is available. We visited for dinner and breakfast and both were very good.

Convenient location since it's adjacent to the Willow's Lodge but don't expect a quiet or romantic atmosphere. Food was OK but not exceptional.

Thank you for a wonderful night - great local produce - cooked perfectly, which was accompanied with good bottle of local wine. The waiters know the menu and respected the guests - did not bother us but still gave us great service. The decor of the restaurant is lovely and it is nice to be able to see the chefs... More

Came for lunch with friends. The decor is classy and the service is friendly and efficient. So far, so good. The food is simply delicious. Even the kids ate all theirs without a fuss - so it must be good! Thoroughly recommended!

Terrific food and good service. They are famous for their Grand Marnier Prawns; we had them several times during our three night stay at the Willows Lodge. Also, the Barking Frog is part of the Willows Lodge and as such, is the restaurant that supplies room service for the hotel and happy hour hors d’oeuvres for the hotel's bar!

Fantastic meal, the use of herbs and local produce was excellent. Staff was knowledgeable, attentive but not hovering. It was one of the best meals we've EVER had

Grand Marnier prawns are to die for. I've been to Barking Frog several times and always get the prawns. The entrees there are delightfully cooked and interesting. Excellent dining experience.
