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. Lovely atmosphere, great attentive customer service and fab food - cant wait to return again soon!

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.

Absolutely love Barrow Boy and the food from Deckards within however on this occasion the service wasn't as fab as it usually is. We (group of 6) did the bottomless brunch which we did a couple of months ago and it was completely different vibe to the first time we did it. Firstly, we were asked for our initial drinks order without being given a menu. When we asked for a menu, they didn't have any menus for bottomless brunch so were just given a usual cocktail menu but not told which we drinks we could have. The rounds of drinks took at least 20/25 minutes to come each time and we weren't allowed to order drinks unless our glasses were empty which left us waiting for drinks every time. Last time we did it, we were given bottles of prosecco for the table which made more sense considering a number of us were drinking it but we were told that wasn't allowed. Food took well over 45 minutes to come which we understood as the kitchen was probably busy but it was so late into the booking that we had to contact the bar we were going to afterwards as it made us late for that. When the bill came, several items were missed off so we had to send it back for another cheque to come out which was another 5/10mins wait. The food and taste of the drinks was great but the service was a real let down compared to the last time we did it. I'll still visit for food and drinks but probably wont do the bottomless brunch again.

The food is amazing! Great service. My only comment would be it was that the chairs were uncomfortable and it was quite loud with a lot going on - appreciate it’s something the business can’t change :)
