“Perfect meeting place for a coffee”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 August 2013

The Oak Barn is a delightful little coffee shop set within a small oak furniture shop (excellent quality). It sells oak tables, chairs, sideboards, beds etc. and some individual bits for the home.
One goes through the charming little shop to the café which sells excellent coffee, a choice of interesting cakes, panini, salads etc. The tables are situated in a charming little barn-type area with a roaring log burner in the winter months. There is also an outdoor area with tables and sunshades which is very pleasant on a nice day. Plenty of parking space too.
We visited the Barn again today; it is a regular stop-off for us and I would recommend it to anyone visiting that area near to Budleigh Salterton.
It is a great place to meet up with friends for a quiet coffee and natter!

“Coffee and a bed please!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 August 2013

Yes an oak furnture outlet, but with a lovely little coffee shop that does food. Ideal for those rainy days, to go and browse and grab a drink or something to eat.

“An unexpected treat”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2013

We stopped here for coffee, just by chance, and what a lovely surprise! This roadside business sells lovely (some quite expensive) oak furnishings, and household gifts, and they have a small cafe area, together with a shady patio outside. The food is excellent quality, cakes, panini, cream teas etc. I had a brie, ham and black grape panini, which was really tasty, and came with a wonderful side salad that included fresh peas, tiny broad beans and sweetcorn kernels in a minty dressing - yummy! The staff were friendly and attentive, and provided two plates and forks without being asked when they heard us discuss sharing a piece of the tasty orange cake. We were even impressed by the toilet, which boasts a lovely wooden handbasin!

“What a pleasure.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 June 2013 via mobile

It's not often you can find such a quality cafe which isn't actually the main business and receive coffee, food and service to this standard. Outstandingly good. If you appreciatd really good coffee, the double espresso is highly recommended. Very good, excellent creamma, sweet and no bitterness at all.

A delightful environment with superb furniture and furnishings to enjoy and look at afterwards - thesis business here.

Run and staffed by delightful people, if you are anywhere near the place go and visit. If you don't enjoy the cafe, (highly unlikely) the shop is well worth a browse.
