just before whakatane is this nice little bakery and cafe, set up in a wonderful surrounding with animals and nice indoor and outdoor seating. very nice staff, very flexible with our orders, and prompt service. food was very good and the coffee was excellent. toilets are very basic, but that is ok ... thoroughly enjoyed it. well done.

On Sunday 17th November 2013 my Wife and I stopped at the Red Barn for lunch. I paid for our Ploughman's Lunches at 12.55. At 13.25 we asked a waitress how much longer we would be waiting, the reply was '2 or 3 minutes'. At 13.35 needing to be at an appointment in Whakatane at 14.00 hrs my wife approached a woman who appeared to be in charge and politely asked how much longer our meal would be as we had an appointment in Whakatane for 14.00hrs. She replied 'I'm very busy. I have been here 3 years and never had a complaint.' Turned on her heel and walked away. We then left not having time to demand our money back. Needless to say, we will not return, and certainly would not recommend this place.

Had lunch at this cafe recently. Food was lovely and the price reasonable. It was a lovely sunny day and you had the choice of outdoor or indoor seating. It was nice to be able to look out on the spring lambs. The small complaint was that the service with the drinks was slow to the extent that we had finished eating before our drinks were brought out to us but as we were not in a hurry it wasn't a real issue but worth a mention if you are not wishing to linger.

This is a lovely little country cafe about 5 minutes drive from Whakatane.
A few of us recently went there for lunch.
There is quite a large car park,(though being luch time it was quite busy and we were lucky to get the last couple of carparks) .There are indoor and outdoor seating areas.
Even though it was busy we did not have to wait too long for our orders to appear.
They have an onsite bakery ,and we were given some free samples of bread ,while we were deciding our orders.
Th food was reasonably priced ,presented well and tasted nice.
The wait staff were friendly.
We will try this cafe again this summer.
