Facebook has a lot to answer for! In the case of the Old Barn, Markethill, I will always remember with delight the day we became friends!
Just a few days before Christmas, I was frantically trying to book a table for two for December 27th ... my birthday! ... and no-one was either taking bookings or were going to be open that night. that is, except The Old Barn! I dropped them a message on Facebook, and the rest they say is history!
James (the owner) assured me that we would be looked after ... and we were. From first entering to finally leaving we were treated really well. Amanda was our server on the night and she was (and I'm sure she is) really friendly, but yet professional. I highly recommend here for her service.
My wife had the mushrooms for her appetizer and I had the prawn and salmon timbale ... probably the best starter I have ever had! Both the quality and quantity was superb!
Main courses had to be steak, after all it is a steakhouse! My wife had a the steak medallion tower, which was exquisite, and I had the smoked sirloin, which was simply out of this world! Never had I tasted such succulent, tender and tasty sirloin steak, and even reminiscing now is making my mouth water!
We also enjoyed an excellent Crianza!
The appearance, both external and internal, is pleasing to the eye, and the ambience is so, so warm and friendly.
Unfortunately, we have not been back since, but we are booked in for my Son's birthday in June, and we are looking forward to it expectantly.
A real 5-star experience. Very highly recommended.
And who said Facebook is a blight on society? Not me!
