Food, cocktails and service are always outstanding at Barrow Boy!

They stop serving food at 8.45pm (not sure if that is every day) and it would have been good to be reminded of this as it was so good we wanted to order more!

Never fails to amaze me every time!! Been to Barrowboy many times now and it gets better every visit. I had the “hallouminator” and l”shogun assassin” chicken bao buns, Seoul loaded fries and several cocktails and they’re absolutely delicious.

Funky friendly venue with a relaxed vibe.
The team are charming, smiling, friendly and knowledgeable. Our drinks were fantastic. And the food is absolutely spot on - completely delicious.
There was a real mix of age ranges too.
We wish we lived a bit closer!
Highly recommended.

We love the bao buns here so came for the lunch menu deal on a day off. Food was delicious. Drinks were nice. Unfortunately out food order was lost so we ended up waiting an hour for food. Staff were friendly and tried to rectify.
