Description: When exploring Holt we hope you discover The Barn. Nestled amongst delightful individually owned shops in Appleyard, which is just off Budgen's car park, rests this European bistro style cafe. Here you can eat breakfast, enjoy a coffee, have a glass of wine with your lunch and indulge in tea and cake. Sunday is brunch time. You can also surf the net, as free wi-fi is provided, and relax with the free newspapers. The friendly service, warm atmosphere and good food is sure to make you want to keep on returning as many people already do.

“Excellent cuisine”
Reviewed 15 July 2013

We ate a wonderful meal here sitting outside in the courtyard area. The menu had an eclectic choice of dishes with a good number of fish options. The fish was very fresh and cooked beautifully. The service was excellent too (attentive but not rushed) making it a very pleasurable dining experience. The public car park is close to the restaurant and is free after 18.00. This is a lovely place to eat in Holt irrespective of the time of day but the evening meals are something special!

Had a couple of lunches at the Barn and last night ate there in the evening. Food was delicious as was the wine and service. Will definitely go there again. Well worth a visit.

“Saturday Morning Special”
Reviewed 18 June 2013

Visited Holt a few weeks ago , on way from car park to main street, came upon the Barn.
Smallish local cafe, bistro.
Had late breakfast, Smoked Salmon and scrambled eggs on a muffin I think.
Eggs very gently cooked, the added cream gave a rich finish to the dish
My wife had a salad, coffee good.
Great place to call into when in Holt
Cost £21.00, two meal, two coffees and a bottle of water

“Superb small cafe/restaurant”
Reviewed 16 June 2013

Lovely place to go for either a good coffee or top quality food. Helen, the owner is very helpful and supported by efficient young staff. Well done. Found it more or less by accident after visiting the local Budgen supermarket. Great menu, wi-fi and newspapers available.

“Catch a crab”
Reviewed 8 June 2013

Friday fish night for the first time and well worth the visit, great atmosphere and even better food with friends. Crab linguine with a hint of chilli and chocolate chip cheese cake washed down with Sauvignon Blanc and coffee. Full marks from visitors from the depths of Bucks
