Thought we would try out the barn after it had just been revamped, decor very nice with fairy lights outside. The food however after a forty min wait in a near empty pub was cold :( and foil stuck to the underside of the pizza, people with fillings beware.

Honestly, have never posted on this site before, but given the disaster that is Sunday lunch at the barn, if I can warn anyone else from attending! We went for a family Sunday lunch and the food was truly shocking. If ever a pub should stick to being just a pub and not serve food then this is the place. I know it was called the barn, but firstly a little heating would be nice given that after 10 minutes. I had to get our coats from the car. We all ordered the Sunday lunch and given it’s one of my favourite meals, this was a disaster of epic proportions. The meat was not proper meat and felt like one of those microwave in bag jobs, as was completely tasteless and given we ordered different meats (turkey, beef and pork) they all tasted the same. Secondly the vegetables and potatoes had not salted and overcooked. The roast potatoes had no taste to them. The Yorkshire puddings where burnt and the gravy was appalling. The flour had not been sieved out and was completely tasteless. Would have been better giving us Bisto granules. And the least said about the toilets the better, there was no toilet paper and nothing to wash your hands with. My wife was shocked with the state of the ladies, as there was dried urine and excrement inside the toilets which obviously had not been cleaned from the night before. The only bright thing was the young waiter/waitress serving us, unfortunately that was as good as it got! And 4 soft drinks for £10!!! The owner should be appalled with serving people this level of food and there are far better pubs serving proper food.

Lovely local pub
Stunning food

Drinks a bit expensive

Very dodgy road down to venue needs some Tarmac immediately
