“Great rustic bar and food”
Reviewed 1 August 2014 via mobile

As it was located next to our lodges The Barn was a logical choice for a bite to eat and a drink on our first night, it was great to be able to bring the dog in with us and we had the choice of an indoor or outdoor seating area, the latter having a great wood burning stove! The food was great and over our stay here we ate at The barn 4 times, the dishes are simple but tasty and the macaroni cheese was a favourite. The atmosphere was very relaxing and there was live music at times.

“Good home cooked food”
Reviewed 15 July 2014

After a long drive we were delighted to find this was only a couple of minutes walk from our chalet. Atmosphere is lovely, cosy booths, children and dogs welcome. Can imagine it would be a nice warm place to spend a winter's evening, but also has an outdoor seating area for summer. Good home-cooked food, I especially loved the macaroni cheese, real comfort food! The chocolate mousse was very disappointing though - thick and creamy, rather than a light mousse (I couldn't eat it so they took it off our bill without being asked which I appreciated). The biggest disappointment was afterwards when we discovered that Wednesdays are 'kids eat free' night. We had eaten there on a Wednesday but as we had not asked for this, we were charged for our two children's meals. Personally I think this is bad business - a deal should be offered to everyone, not just those who ask.
