“Exceptional food only let down by mixed service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2013

When we arrived table had not been laid up, we waited 10 min to be offered a menu and were served by 4 different people - basically disorganised. That said the food tastes amazing (ham and eggs starter followed by rib eye ), good atmosphere and no real bill shock. Service just needs a fine tune!

“Different Environment”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2013 via mobile

We eat as a group of four at 'The Barn' recently.
After difficulty finding the entrance we arrived through the bar on the upper floor.
The bench seating is unusual but did not suit us, so we asked to be moved.
The ambience was friendly and lively making for an enjoyable evening, even though it was spoilt by an over enthusiastic table nearby. The staff were understanding and moved us upstairs to the bar to finish our meal.
The food was ok, but not special considering the size of the bill.
Will we return -yes. I'm sure it will be a wonderful location for a meal on a nice summer evening.

“Wonderful setting - poor food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2013

Having eaten here several times, I just wish you can get a decent meal! I keep going back as I love the setting but it is really not worth the amount they charge. Wine prices are extortionate and the service is very awkward. I just wish the food could live up to the prices; I understand the Barn should be a relaxed dining experience but there is no excuse for average food attached to a 5 star hotel. The best thing about it is the glassware used for drinks.
I have learnt my lesson now and will NOT return.

“The best restaurant in Ascot!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

Another memorable visit to The Barn where the staff make you feel at home & the food is comforting as it is tasty. The menu is great & lovely to see in season with local ingredients.
The open kitchen makes your visit entertaining and adds another dimension to a normal dining experience.
We all enjoyed our food thoroughly & cannot wait to go back to our local favourite restaurant in Ascot!!!

It is always a pleasure to read how the atmosphere is relaxing and the food enjoyed, and I am glad that you also found the open kitchen added another dimension to the experience. We cannot wait to have you back either, and Greg and his team look forward to the occasion.
