Open Sunday lunchtimes - awesome Sunday lunch! Booking is a must. Closed Monday and also (I think) Tuesdays. Visit their website or give them a call. The Barn beef and brisket are to die for!

To be honest, for the enviroment, food quality & choice I don't think it's expensive. As they say, you "get what you pay for". Their menu is priced up on their website, I'm sure you'll enjoy your evening.
