“Great Sunday lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2014

We came to the tree view for Sunday lunch last week 9th February and it was fantastic we had the beef and it was cooked to perfection. We came one Sunday and it was very bloody and tough. Yorkshire pudding were huge and the portions were great value all round. The veg was great but maybe sliced carrots instead of the same veg would be nice change for us. The soup needs to ring the changes too as it seems to be the same one most days we are there carrot or lentil but it is still fantastic if a little too thick! Great service if a little slow and the girls need to keep checking tables. But great food. We will be back

“A little Oasis”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2014

Met some friends for lunch and found the food to be excellent, the staff friendly and helpful, proper tea ( not in a bag) and first rate coffee. Haven't been to Northallerton for years and loved the whole of Barkers. What a wonderful store stocking things out of the ordinary.

“Amazing hot chocolate!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2014 via mobile

My sister has recently moved to live in Northallerton and we have found this is a great place for lunch. The Rarebit is absolutely our favourite lunch, but it is the Hot Chocolate which gets the gold medal from my daughter's point of view! Gorgeous wide glass mug, lashings of cream and marshmallow! Service at the counter can be slow when it is busy but it is worth the wait!

“Busy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2013

Love this little department store. Must be about six years since we last come to Northallerton and we called in here for lunch. It was as busy as the first time we called and the food was just as good. Traditional choices and nice big portions. The place was full for a Tuesday afternoon which shows how popular it is. You must visit the toilets , they are a one off !

“Boring”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

I opened with the title of boring because that is what I found. This cafe is now offering Sunday lunches which myself and my good lady decided to try. In my opinion this cafe should stay with offering snacks and coffee as the Sunday lunch was average at best meaning that the food was not hot, the meat content and quality was average and the vegetables were overcooked (very soft). It seems a shame as Barkers normally have a reputation for quality and the store itself (in which the cafe is sited) gives off that ambience. One of the staff was friendly but the others appeared to be less than happy that they were working on a Sunday? Within Northallerton town there are much better offerings from quality and value perspective.
