“Just in time”
Reviewed August 18, 2014

We rang on the way so we could make sure of getting a snack/meal close to closing time. The answer was yes & they didn't disappoint.
The Barn Café Bistro was easy to find. The waitress was very obliging & the food was delicious. We were not rushed & the meal was good quality & good value. We may even go back tomorrow. It's better than anywhere we've been in Scarborough town.

“A Sunday treat!”
Reviewed August 11, 2014

By chance I stopped at The Barn having found local pubs very busy on a very wet and stormy Sunday. I am so glad the pubs were busy or I would have missed a real treat. A delightful old barn renovated to a high standard. A fire was burning as even on an August day the weather was attrocious. Starters of Risotto and Calamari, I had the roast pork and my friend had the beef. The beef was not served pink as stated but still delicious. Home made horseradish cream and beautiful fresh cabbage, carrot and swede with roast potatoes. A tad pricier than some of the better pubs but worth paying for comfort. I will certainly visit again

“Lovely venue”
Reviewed August 2, 2014 via mobile

We visited for a family lunch on Saturday and sat on the "landing" section upstairs.

The venue is nice and clean and service was with a smile and initially prompt. However, as it got a bit busier we had to initiate our own table being cleared and it felt a bit as though we'd been forgotten. Time ran out for us to order dessert because of this.

I would concur with another review that I expected a bit more from the food for the price. Overall I would still recommend it as the place had a very nice feel and was a relaxed comfortable environment and very pleasant staff.

“Nice cafe but expected more”
Reviewed July 28, 2014

We visited The Barn after reading some great reviews and a newspaper article. We visited on a Saturday afternoon for some lunch and the location and the actual place is lovely but we found the food fairly average for the price. Our main choice was sold out so we both had the ham sandwich which had quite a scarce serving of ham which was oveloaded with onion marmalade. We both got a cake which were similarly just ok. I wouldn't mind stopping here again but similarly wouldn't go out of my way to visit.

“A special place for a special occasion”
Reviewed July 20, 2014 via mobile

I chose the Barn for a meal out as part of my sister's hen party because there was a big group of us and they offer private dining. I liked the fact I could create a menu (American diner) and drinks to suit the group and Clair from the team was really helpful with all the planning. When we arrived we were greeted by staff with a glass of prosecco which was such a nice touch! We were so lucky with the weather we could drink outside in the courtyard before going upstairs to eat, again this made it feel really special and relaxed. As we had the whole place to ourselves it meant we could chat without having to worry about other guests. The staff were so friendly, accommodating (we even took our own music to play) and really efficient. The food was really nice overall, esp the macaroni cheese. I wasn't as keen on my choices but have fed this back to the restaurant. However, I would still 100% recommend this place to anyone, and it's ideal for a big group wanting a special venue for a special occasion.
