“Amazing Food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013

I went there with family on the 7th June 2013 and I have to say it was one of the most delicious meals I have had in ages. Incredible value too as we had three courses for 11.95. Every course was beautifully presented and tasted amazing. I will be definately returning asap. Great service too! thanks

“Another fantastic meal at The Berney Arms”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

We've just been for another fantastic meal at The Berney. The scallops were tender, flavoursome and beautifully presented. The lamb rump was equally tender and delicious, and the chocolate mousse was everything I would hope for from a pudding. Chocolately, excellently presented and with a generous portion!
If you want a relaxed atmosphere with friendly staff and excellent wine and beer choices, The Berney is the place to go.

“Lovely Anniversary Lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

My husband and I visited the Berney Arms for lunch recently following a recommendation from some friends. We were immediately made welcome in the pub bar and were offered our choice of tables (either in the bar, or in the restaurant). We had a drink in the bar and were taken through to the restaurant when our starter was ready. The restaurant was otherwise empty at the time however, the waitress came and lit the candles on all the other tables and around the fireplace which was a nice touch.

The restaurant isn't easily identifiable - there is a sign bearing a coat of arms, but otherwise no indication that this is a pub/restaurant. You could be forgiven for missing it, although the village of Barton Bendish is not enormous.

We ordered from the a la carte lunch menu because we had wanted to try some of the game and although the portions were a little small (as pointed out by another reviewer); by the time we had eaten 3courses plus bread, coffee & chocolates we were certainly not hungry. In fact, it was nice to be able to manage all three courses without feeling overfaced.

The food is moderately priced, but if eating from the set menu represents very good value for money. The ingredients are locally sourced and the dishes we ate were cooked to order. While we were there, another diner asked to adjust her dish (opting for salad instead of potatoes) and was happily obliged.

Our waitress was attentive without being intrusive and the service was good overall. We made a small comment about the main course which she fed back to the chef, and another comment about the desert for which she took responsibility herself (having plated the dish).

We would certainly visit again.

Excellent food, excellent range of Adnams Ales in superb condition. It is always a pleasure to come here of Sunday Lunch, or indeed anytime.

“Brilliant Food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013

I visited the Berney arms with 3 friends. I eat at a lot of pubs and restaurants local to here but none match up to this gem! The food was brilliant, tasteful and not over priced. I had a marcel starter and it looked far to good to eat! Attention to detail is clearly shown throughout. The Service was good and the general atmosphere was lovely. Will be returning very soon!
