If you prefer something quicker or more informal our bar has a great atmosphere with wooden beams and log fires in the winter. Our beautiful new orangery links the garden with the bar, which adds an alternative area for customers to enjoy a drink or snack. Extensive bar snacks ranging from sandwiches to hot dishes and home-made "pub-grub" including great burgers made with 100% prime British beef. Terrific range of drinks, including two real ales, wide selection of lagers and at least ten wines available by the glass.

The barn is a nice looking pub, close to the centre of town, with a nice garden. We have visited a few times, but have to say, that although it looks nice, and the food is ok (actually reallly average considering the price), the service is quite poor and the staff are often very cold and aloof. Maybe they are... More

Came in for a meal with my mother and that was my first mistake! The reception from the gent behind the bar was fairly cold and almost to the point that we felt we were an inconvenience to what he was preoccupied with. We had a table pointed out to us and after a few minutes we were asked by... More

We consider this review to be false for the following reasons and totally refute it. The reviewer has stated that the person behind the bar pointed to the table in the restaurant, which is not possible as our bar is on the ground floor and the restaurant is on the first floor. We do not employ any female chefs with... More

Thank you very much for your review and kind compliments regarding the food, staff and friendly atmosphere. I am sorry that we appear to have skimped on the chips on this occasion, so please accept my apologies. Normally we get compliments about our portions being “large” but this was obviously not the case on this instance. We look forward to... More

Just been to the Barn for the first time and for a wedding. Could not fault the staff for their enthusiasm to ensure the day went without a glitch. From the minute we walked in until the last minute staff were on hand to help. Conservatory offers a scenic place to say your vows in front of your witnesses. Upstairs... More

Thank you very much for your review and your kind words about our staff.

Went to The Barn as part of a group for an end of year celebration. I thought the food was disappointing. I had preordered chicken for my main, the chicken was very dry and lacked any proper sauce. My wife has ordered the fish it was also very dry, as if it had been cooked well in advance. The deserts... More

I don't normally write reviews but unfortunately I felt the need to do this time as I don't want the upset caused to myself and friends to happen to anyone else.
