I was soo relieved to find my phone - I had dropped it outside the tea room yesterday (when visiting the physio in the Spud Shed). Someone from the tea rooms managed to phone one of my emergency numbers and track me down and I...was able to collect the phone. So relieved and grateful for your honesty! THANK YOU SO MUCH!More

We pre booked a table for 2 for breakfast , we were seated in front of the big glass doors, which had a cold breeze coming in through as the door did not fit properly. As there were plenty of tables unoccupied, we asked to...be moved to a different table. Upon checking the waitress came back and said as the other tables were booked for lunch, we couldn't be moved, this was at 11.20? We waited 45 mins for our breakfast to arrive, by which time the tea in the pot was luke warm. Food eventually arrived, but the toast was burnt and the eggs and mushrooms hardly cooked. We ate what was edible. It was 12.20 by now, and there was still 4 tables for 2 unoccupied, same as when we had come in an hour earlier , so no reason we could not have been moved! Nobody bothered asking if our meal was OK and when paying the bill and voicing politely our disappointment we were told ' sorry but we are busy today ' .! We will not be returning!More

We were seated to our table after having a lovely beauty treatment in the spud shed. The table was presented beautifully next to the Christmas tree. Our afternoon tea was delightful, plenty or savoury sandwiches, pastries and cakes too with a lovely pot of hot...tea. The surroundings were gorgeous, very cosy and festive. The ladies serving were all polite and attentive. All round a great experience!More

Went to Owd Barn with family for brunch on Wednesday 27th... Booked table for 10.45.We arrived about 5 minutes early and we're seated immediately. The waitress took our order within 5 minutes. Although the drinks came as expected it was gone 11.30 before our breakfasts...were served... I did not expect to wait nearly 40 minutes for our food. We are regular visitors and recommend the place to our friends and family but this is the second time in a row that the wait has been disappointing. I understand that the food is freshly prepared but they didn't seem over busy on the day. Sorry, I don't like giving a negative review.... But if they are unaware the service can't be improved on. The food, by the way, was very good as usual.More

A really nice setting in an old barn in a rural village. Small but tasty snack style menu. Staff really lovely and efficient.

I had a lovely afternoon tea with my aunties. It came nicely presented on a tiered stand, we had soup, chips, sausage roll, sandwiches, cheese & chutney tart, pork pie, jelly & cream, scone jam & cream, little French fancy type cake, lemon drizzle cake...and tea. I just wish I had taken a photo before I tucked in! The place has a lovely rustic feel and is clean. The staff all very friendly and overall it is great value for money.More

Picturesque setting, beautiful building, delicious food and attentive service. My partner and I visited on a Saturday morning for breakfast. We sat outside but also had a wander around the excellent shop attached to the tea rooms. We’ve found our new regular breakfast stop!

Called here as we had read all the reviews and were really looking forward to visiting. However in reality we found the food to be very unimaginative and lack lustre. My husband had pie which had the worst pastry ever and my salad was old...fashioned and quite tasteless. Just goes to show you cant believe everything you read.More

I'm afraid we don't allow dogs inside the tearoom but we have plenty of seating outside if you wish to bring your dog along 😀 Hope this helps.
