Visited here on a Friday night, quite slow service considering the restaurant wasn't very busy. We didn't mind as weren't in a rush and the quality of the meal was worth waiting for. A real range of starters, mains and sides including big choice of naans and rice. The lamb in rogan josh was extremely tender and flavoursome. Waiters were... More

You look at the barn from the outside...it looks lovely. From the inside I was a bit dissapointed. Decor a bit dated...needs a lick of paint here and there. We were an early bird to sit and eat and what we ate was lovely. Piping hot...tasty and lots of it and boy there is a lot to choose from. It... More

Had a takeaway and have to say there is nothing wrong with the food, well cooked and tasty! However, I like my food hot, and I mean hot. I asked for this on the phone and all they did was poor a load of chilli powder in to the dish! That really isn't the way to make a tasty dish... More

Recently had food delivered from The Barn, well prepared and arrived quickly, all food piping hot on arrival. Chicken Tikka Masala had a kick to it and the lamb rogan josh was full of huge chunks of vegetables, flavoursome sauce and mouthwatering cuts of tender lamb. Cheesy naan was the best I have had, a tonne of filling inside which... More

We had visited The Barn a few months earlier & found the food & service to be lovely, so returned for a family meal. This time we found the service to be poor, especially from the bar man, he was very rude. The poppadoms were soggy, but the starters were very nice (lamb chops) & then it was quite a... More

Lovely rural setting. Mon - Thursdays they have a three course offer for £15.95. The staff and diners are very friendly. The food is fabulous. Great portions (too much). Great variety on menu. Well worth a visit.
