“The perfect evening”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013

My husband & I had a meal here on what must have been the coldest night ever but we were cozy & warm in this wonderful restored wine. The service was excellent, soft music added to the relaxed atmosphere, menu choice varied & plentiful, food well presented & delicious plus wine & beer especially the organic choice excellent. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend this restaurant to everyone & when we return to North Norfolk will visit again.

“A lovely meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

On a snowy and freezing evening we received a really warm welcome from the staff at the door. The food was good, the wine competitively priced and the staff super. Not fine dining. A little expensive overall but apart from that, just what we wanted. Would recommend and we keep returning.

“Relaxing with very good food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

We love the North Norfolk coast and living about 60 miles away visit as often as possible. In the past we would head for Holt, a gem of this lovely region. Problem is many other people think so too and parking is often a problem and getting lunch has demanded a lot of patience. We've passed "Back to the Garden" before and then pulled in one time to see what it was like.
What a revelation! Easy parking and what a beautiful barn to enjoy a meal in. The young ladies waiting table were polite, friendly and quietly attentive. The food is excellent. Very tasty, exceedingly well presented and balanced with good value. The Barn is now our first call of choice on each journey. We cannot fault any visit, nor recommend more highly. A well stocked grocery and deli complete a delightful visit. On our most recent visit (March 2013) we were even entertained by a pair of Hares boxing in the field opposite. (We still visit Holt of course!)

“An oasis in a culinary desert”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

We take our dogs to be trimmed every 3 months to NW Norfolk near East Dereham and have always struggled to find somewhere to have lunch while they are being pampered. There are several good places actually on the coast but we did not not want to drive that far.

This is a miniature version Daylesford Organic. Lovely shop with very good loacl produce. Excellent cafe with a good choice of snacks and proper food at lunch time.

Scallops as a starter and excellent paperdelle are recommended as is the chicken pie. There is a good range of well chosen and reasonably priced wines by the glass interestingly available in 125, 175 and 250ml sizes.
