Freshly cooked delicious food - battered fish gougons and chicken gougons amazing. Perhaps a kids meal to include drink & icecream would be good! Kids portions large for younger ones. Our kids were aged 5 & 8. Thanks - will be back!

Butter the toast for the beans on toast...or alternatively put the toast and beans separately on the plate with butter! Also...cheese and beans on toast would be even better! My husband said the cooked breakfast could not be bettered!

This was our first visit to The Barn and we weren't disappointed! A friendly welcome and we were shown to a dog-friendly area - and a great doggie menu! Food was excellent value for money and very plentiful. Am so glad we detoured yo have lunch here.

We had a lovely relaxed lunch with good food and friendly staff. The only issue was when we tried to change booking from 2 to 3 people and your app said it wasn't available for 3. Had to phone restaurant to book in the end, and there were tables available for 3 people.

the food as usual was delicious. I had a small portion of the haddock and chips and could have eaten it all over again. The fish is delicious at The Barn. Service is always good too. The one annoying thing we experience when we are there is the dreadful noise of people dragging chairs across the floor! The noise of that is conversation stopping! Maybe some rubber stoppers on the legs of the chairs would help?
