We accepted the adventure of trying "spelt" for the first time, and found it to be wonderful. It's a type of wheat dough that is offered as an alternative crust with their pizza and calzones. A slight "nutty" taste really adds to it! My husband raved about his Type O Calzone....said it was the best calzone he had ever had....

I had business at Maine Maritime. The room was clean and comfortable with heaters for the cold weather. the restaurant is very good, pub is quaint with good food. Pizza in the wood fired area. I would stay there again. I ordered food and brought to room. I also ate in the pub. Breakfast is average.

Pros: room was clean, comfortable, quiet. The restaurant was really, really good: great beer selection, friendly service, casual food with a eye to local ingredients. Not fancy, just very high quality pub food, including great desserts made on site. Con: it is very sad to have to write this because I would have liked to reccommend this place without reservation,but...

We live nearby and eat at Barncastle all year...more so in the winter! We visited last in December with our three sons and had a great meal. Pizza and mussels and great salad. All fresh ingredients. The restaurant was chilly, we wished that the fireplace near us was lit. Service was mediocre, server was efficient but not overly friendly.

Excellent, relaxed atmosphere--and food that is delicious, interesting, and very well-prepared. In the cold weather months, the pub room with its blazing fire is deeply welcoming. In warm weather, the dining areas are kept pleasantly cool. The crabcakes are the best we've ever had in any restaurant: there is no filler; they are all crab! The wood-fired pizza is extraordinary....

I stayed at Barncastle while attending a 1 week training at Wooden Boat School in Brooklin. Wooden Boat is an easy 20 minute drive away. I did not wish to stay in Brooklin as I wanted to be able to get away to work after class. I stayed in Suite 2 on the second floor, which is a 2 room...

The old place has some charm, but the rooms are really a sideline and they don't really know how to run a B&B. Altho' the restraurant closes at 8 or 9, the clean up go on a while so it stays noisy if you are early to bed. And despite what the website leads you to believe, this is way...

The rooms are beautiful, but the sleeping... If you try to get to sleep before 10:15 pm, forget it. The entire downstairs is a restaurant/pub, and while the clientel isn't rowdy, any noise and music drifts into the rooms above. The owner is aware of the problem and intends to install soundproofing between the floors. Until then, bring earplugs. The...

After reading other comments on this site, we almost didn't stay there. However, we decided to see for ourselves, and how happy we are that we did. The rooms are absolutely fabulous, with modern restoration, in an elegant historic mansion. The new owners (since 2007) were there every morning at breakfast. If you needed them at other times, they were...
