Booked a table for 9 of us on Saturday 16th June for my son's 21st birthday. The food and service were outstanding. The lobster was fantastic. Nothing was too much trouble and they even made cocktails that weren't on the menu. Will definitely be returning.

A birthday treat, we were very impressed by the location (on A5 close to M69) and rural setting of Barnacles. Warmly welcomed on arrival we were shown to our table (for 4) in the upstairs dining room and offered drinks as soon as we sat down. Good list of gins and gin cocktails to choose from. I had the Elderflower Gin Martini - superb! I enjoyed a Calamari starter followed by Dover Sole, well served off the bone at the table. All our guests thoroughly enjoyed their meals whether it was the salmon, sea bass or mussels - all washed down the a great bottle of Sancerre. We shall certainly return and enjoy more of the experience that is Barnacles.

I visited this restaurant two weeks ago with some business colleagues and we all had fantastic meals.

We all had different dishes but i had the mussels to start and then the lobster for main.

The mussels were a little on the small side but very tasty. The lobster was fantastic. You can tell the freshness.

I would definitely recommend this restaurant. I will be certainly going back!

We turned up (without booking)for lunch and were both surprised how busy it was, we will probably book a table on our next visit.
The food, as always, was excellent and served by happy and professional staff.
They accommodated our requests of sharing 2 different dishes without hesitation.
It is not the place to go if you're on a tight budget but the prices are very much a reflection of the quality of food, service and setting.

Why did it take us so long to find Barnacles - beautiful location and incredible food - love the trio of fish and blueberry pavlova
