Description: The inglenook Long bar and sofa areas make this area a cosy and relaxing atmosphere, perfect for a chat with friends any night of the week. It is a great place to pop in for a drink with a huge variety of wines, beers and spirits. For summer days and enclosed courtyard is a real sun trap with water features and foliage in abundance, making it a great place to spend some care free hours, or you may prefer the patio area which is quiet, relaxing and overlooking the comings and goings of the bar, making the perfect place to people watch! In addition, it's an ideal place to spend your lunch breaks with easy and free access to parking, so you won't be late for work. There is a great range of baguettes, wraps, salads and hot bar meals to suit your tastes. There is a huge range of hot and cold- light bar meals served from 11:00am-9:30pm as well as our main restaurant menu which will be served from 12:00pm-3.00Pm and 6:00pm onwards. The Bar and Specials menu as well as the Main restaurant can be served either in the Bar or main Restaurant, giving you great flexibility on where you would like to eat. Part of the restaurant can be portioned off and used for private functions. The focal point being an old sandstone Fireplace makes this area would provide ideal conference facilities for up to 25 people comfortably. The great oaks of England admirably sum up the nation's character of quality and solid dependability and they are what you can expect when you visit the Oak Barn Bar and Restaurant. The original 250 year old barn has been lovingly restored using old oak beams, many of which are salvaged from the great wooden ships of nelson's day. Complete with several authentic wagon wheel chandeliers, Old Sussex Sandstone and Inglenook fireplace, stained glass windows, oak floors additionally, perched charmingly above the main dining area is an oak gallery which is already a favourite spot for diners.

The restaurant was lovely and the staff were very friendly. I did enjoy my food and was a good sized portion although I did find it all quite expensive. Would visit again though

Food was tasty and hot, and very reasonably priced. The service was friendly and quick. The restaurant is lovely with beams and an open fire in the bar.

I eat at The Oak Barn several times a year, sometimes dining in the restaurant and sometimes an informal lunch in the bar. The food is consistently good and definitely not just regular pub grub. Recommended for a special evening out as well as everyday.

I went here for my birthday in August, with my Husband and children. We all ordered the roast beef, which was a bit fatty and tough, gravy tasted ok but not much of it and as the plates were cold the food did not keep warm either. Nice to have cauliflower cheese, but the carrot (or carrot and suede) mash was like smooth baby puree - no texture whatsoever!
The most off putting thing I found was that the food was on our table within 5 minutes of having our order taken, reminding us instantly that everything had just been microwaved
I would rate the food as slightly above average,but with a big price tag.
