Lovely Sunday lunch

My wife and I were staying very close to here and so decided that we'd try it for the Sunday lunch. We arrived just after they opened at 12 o'clock and each had a drink. The place was virtually empty at that time, and we were greeted by the staff and our orders taken within a very short... read more

I really enjoyed my visit in June. There was a huge choice on the menu and we all enjoyed the different meals that we chose. The staff were very friendly and helpful.

Had a meeting with old work colleagues here today. The staff were very patient as we didn't know how many were coming and what time they would arrive! Anyway, 6 of us had a very enjoyable reunion. I had fish and chips and the meal was faultless. Although I can't speak for the others I think that they all enjoyed... More

Good Sunday lunch in pleasant surroundings with plenty of parking space. Friendly staff without being overly pushy. Food was good and not too pricey. Would visit again.

We took visiting New Zealand cousins to the Old Barn Owl for a meal, never having been there before. What a nice surprise. The food was very good, clearly freshly made and generous. I had the seafood platter and it was a great big bowl of all sorts of perfectly cooked crustaceans accompanied by warm bead - absolutely lush. Puddings... More

We are staying in the area and visited The Old Barn Owl this evening for a meal. The food was just perfect and all the staff were excellent. We would recommend a visit and when we next visit the area we definitely will have our evening meals there.

The current owner took over just over 12 months ago, and is trying hard to re-establish the reputation of this lovely pub. Have eaten here several times and always had great meals. They serve just about the best chips I've had!
