Best customer service in Yarm and surrounds. The speed and efficiency of the service was superb and combining this with helpful and friendly staff makes Barnacles really stand out. The food was beautiful too. Everybody should go to Barnacles....

Went one Friday night as most of the pubs stop serving food early. Clean place, good service and even a table to sit and eat inside

What you see is what you get. Had sausage chips and gravy and it was excellent, Barnacles is usually reliable to a good standard and this is no different, typical fish and chip shop.
