we called in for lunch while we were out and about, the interior is very pleasant if a bit cramped. it took a while before anyone came to take out order and drinks after not too long - but then a very long wait for mediocre food. my husband ordered the hand carved ham sandwich - which was 2 slices...

This is a very good restaurant for lunches, based at Heart of the Country craft centre. There is a wide choice of dishes to suit all appetites, reasonably priced. I visited with two friends and we each found food to our liking. The choice of puddings and cakes to good too.

Popped in for lunch after shopping. The staff were very courteous and attentive to your needs and nothing was too much trouble for them. Drinks came very quickly leaving us to view the menu and once we had made our mind up, the food followed on fairly quickly even though the place was busy. Small but varied menu and specials... More

Called here for lunch, while shopping. Ordered drinks which came fairly quickly but then some time before our order was taken and then a long wait for food to be delivered. We both had a BLT baguette which was disappointing. The baguette seemed to have been heated in the oven and was chewy rather than of crusty. I would have... More

Called in here for lunch with my mum, sister and two nieces (2&4) for lunch. We had reserved a table (but only done so half an hour before we were due to eat) and the table wasn't ready for 1pm. The cafe is nice, if not a little squashed! The service was very poor - we had to ask for... More

When attending the Heart of the Country we normally call into the Pear Tree creperie lunch however as we had our grandchildren (3&5) with us we decided that the Barn restaurant at the same venue was probably a safer bet. The restaurant was fairly full when we arrived having pre-booked. Inside it was overly warm and slightly claustrophobic so, as... More

We have visited The Barn on several occasions, normally for Sunday lunch. On every occasion the meal has been excellent, well presented, good choice of courses and the staff very attentive. As stated by other reviewers the barn is not large and doesn't aim to be a Michelin star restaurant, what it is, is a first class venue for relaxing... More

Good homemade food at a good price with friendly staff. The only downside is that it is small inside as you would expect for a converted barn and is very warm in the summer months, there are a few tables so you can sit outside though. Nice place to eat and a good selection of bespoke shops to browse before... More
