This place never ceases to please! We did a liner (late lunch early dinner), so we were there for 3 and there was a small hiccup with the front of house staff not being there when we arrived - you've got to love Rayleigh roadworks!!!...The chef came out of the kitchen, he was really friendly and apologetic and kindly offered to serve us 'simple drinks' as the cocktails weren't his forte... I have to say, all the staff here are friendly, jovial and customer-centric. Shortly after the poor flustered staff turned up, greeting us as they ran past. Shortly after she arrived at our table, apologised for being late and our wait - totally professional and genuine! The food, well, nothing changes it's lovely food here and it was piping hot and full of flavours. If the owner is reading this, we visited on 28/06, all of your staff deserve recognition for their efforts that day!More

Having waited an hour for delivery (admittedly on a very busy night), one if the burgers was wrong,in that it had dressing on. They resolved this by sending out another. Also, the first burgers arrived and they weren't exactly hot!

Thought we would give this place a try as per reviews.. Steaks excellent taste, were they done on a bbq? Not sure on that one! Certainly no smokey taste..tad expensive too (£23.50and up) but as said tasted nice. Burgers nice and worth the money.. Ribs...excellent Fish also well sized.. All in all a nice place, just a tad overpriced for what you get..go again though!More

First visit for me, but on recommendation from a friend. Wow! Just wow! Lovely clean environment with lots of space. Brilliantly attentive stuff who watched, but didn't interfere. The perfect service. The food was plentiful and piping hot, and the 2 for 1 cocktails were...fabulous. We both had a cracking time and will definitely return.More

Long awaited trip to our favourite restaurant. Staff as lovely as ever. Food and drinks amazing. Well worth waiting for, can’t wait to go again.

Unfortunately the quality has dropped in this place, I used to really like it but our most recent visit was a disappointment. Not sure what has happened to the burgers but if I'm paying £14 for a burger I want it to taste better than...a frozen burger that has been oven cooked, dense tasteless meat with no flame taste, I can prepare a better burger in my kitchen at home. Staff were great as always but food was poor across the board, I think that will be my last Barrington Grill.More

Other members of my family had dined at this restaurant and so it was suggested as the venue for my birthday meal out. We pre-booked and had a warm welcome on arrival. We were shown to our tables. Masks were expected to be worn when...not at the table. We were given a QR code to access the menu (guess who had left the mobile phone at home thinking I won't need it)! We managed to share between us. Also to my surprise as it was my birthday I was offered a complimentary cocktail - very lovely. I was able to order a Craft beer which was so good I had to have two. My choices of starter and main course was not so good as both items were not available. All other guests had what they wanted and I settled for other choices. The food came and all dishes were lovely with no complaints. I had calamari (no mussels) and scampi (no cod) both of which were fine. Our server was Anna and she was attentive and gave great customer service throughout. We all agreed that we had enjoyed the occasion and will be back again soon hopefully.More
