A family event which proved very successful due to a very good meal which was well presented. I would recommend this restaurant for a special event.

This restaurant has a very attractive position down a farm track. The welcome is friendly and the food excellent. Duck done in several different ways was an first rate starter. Most of the food comes from local suppliers and gives great flavours. The wine list is varied and interesting and not overpriced. We would certainly eat there again if ever... More

We have eaten at Clavelshay a few times as a family with our toddler and the food and service has been excellent each time. The portions are generally very generous, particularly the desserts and the Sunday roast is also particularly good. The setting is rather unique being set within a working farm and the menu certainly seems to reflect local... More

We ate here on Friday night and had a great time. The food was delicious and we cant wait to come back! The staff very attentive and we were very well looked after. A tractor had brought a phone line down so we couldn't call for a taxi (there's no phone signal) so the chef drove us home! Excellent service!!

We went here for the first time for a special Birthday meal. This place is a gem. Tucked away in the countryside, they offer a warm welcome, service with a smile, excellent quality food prepared by French chef, fine wines and sumptuous desserts. Highly recommend.

I live locally but somehow had forgotten about Clavelshay Barn and not been for years. What a mistake! But recently it was my birthday and my Dad treated four of us to dinner. These days the food really is exceptional, with hardly any exceptions. Starters, main courses and deserts left us in delight, and we got the sense that the... More

Have fined at Clavelshay several times in the last few years and have never had a disappointing experience. This time we were celebrating my stepdad's 70th birthday with friends and family. Despite it being a wet & windy Saturday evening in May, we had a warm welcome from the staff. We started our celebration by sharing a bottle of champagne... More

Our first visit to Clavelshay Barn and we had been recommended by friends. I wonder how any restaurant survives in such a rural out of the way location but the owner Sue and her team have been operating here for 11 years she told us. Very friendly team at the front and some very good cooking from French Chef Olivier... More
