“Best of Barra”
Reviewed July 26, 2012

One of the reasons we keep going back to Barra is so that we can dine at the Deck again. Perfect location and the food is so fresh and tasty. The scones with jam and clotted cream are to die for.

“Weather Dependant Treat”
Reviewed July 26, 2012

Friendly staff, BIG beautifully tasty sandwiches, the hot smoked salmon ones are delicious. Tablet topped muffins! Great view from The Deck over the bay and Kismul Castle. You need to wait for a good enough day to sit out on the Deck as there are no indoor seats but it is worth waiting for a weather window.

“Great for coffee and cake or packed lunches”
Reviewed July 7, 2012

A firm favourite for a quick coffee - nice fresh baking to complement it and the view from the deck is lovely. The packed lunches are great too with generous helpings and delicious sandwiches

“Great coffee and lovely friendly young waitresses!”
Reviewed June 6, 2012

Good sandwiches, great coffee (and a bit of tablet with every cup!) and very good home baking. Pity they don't have indoor seating or we'd have visited more frequently!!
