    Really tasty breakfast, good cakes/brownies and great coffee. Our server was really attentive and wished me happy birthday having read the note with our booking. Really enjoyed browsing the plant nursery after breakfast. High quality plants and good prices.

    A first visit for 3 out of 4 in our party for a birthday celebration and everyone loved the venue. The food was fantastic, with generous portions, an attentive wait staff who were friendly and welcoming. The Barn Shop and the plant areas were well staffed and very inviting looking. Definitely will be returning for future visits.

    We went for brunch at 11am and had a lovely relaxing two hours. The staff were all very attentive but not pushy and the food was lovely. I had not been since the yurt was in use but The barn still has a great atmosphere

    So glad the heating issue seems to be resolved. My elderly mother doesn’t like the cold. My poached eggs with asparagus and hollandaise on toasted muffin was absolutely perfect. My sister really enjoyed the marrow fat peas - nice to see something different on a breakfast menu. The lunch menu looked lovely and we look forward to trying that in the future.

    I had the heuvos rancheros which were outstanding. My 2 friends had the breakfast skillet, which they didn't think was very generous portion and they also thought the sausages and bacon weren't cooked for long enough. My husband had the muffin with holandaise which he liked. Atmosphere great. Sat outside under cover which was nice to have the option on such a hot day. Decent prices. I'll definitely return for the heuvos rancheros again.

    Beautiful refurbishment of the barn with 3 separate areas to eat in. Menu is quite small, but all the food on offer looked delicious and decent vegan options too. We opted for small plates, smoked salmon and a venison sausage roll. Absolutely fantastic, high quality food. We then had some very yummy homemade cake afterwards. Really enjoyed our visit and looking forward to going back.

    The barn is beautiful itself and quirky within a lovely unique setting. Our Mother’s Day meal was pretty average honestly. The menu didn’t have a lot of choice …. Brunch menu was ok if you liked eggs and not much else. I asked for my chicken burger without aioli as I can’t eat garlic so my burger was very dry. I did ask for mayonnaise on the side which when it arrived had been sat in the pot in refrigerated for a while as it was black in places. It was replaced and staff were lovely. Starter of smoked haddock scotch eggs were the best part of the meal.

    Nice ambience although quite loud as it was busy. The staff were busy but efficient. Good to see lots of vegan and plant based options. Prices seemed on the high side and the portions were quite small for the price. Would certainly return for coffee and cake, but maybe not for lunch given the prices versus portion sizes.

    Lighting not good in the main room. Rather noisy when half full, so would be too noisy when more occupied. Menu for light lunch too restricted. My companion and I had almost no choice of what to eat and resorted to a bowl of soup which was fine, but for the price, we felt could have been more generous in amount. That was the same for the piece of sourdough toasted bread. Not enough. We are both in our early eighties and felt this was a restaurant for a younger clientele .

    Great service, lovely tasty food. Quick service. Only four stars as it was a bit cold inside. We were seated by the bi fold doors to the outside area, we asked if the doors could be shut, but only the door on our side was shut. Not freezing but not warm. Will definitely visit again

    Sunday lunch menu - chose the kale and onion tart with pear chutney. Came with some very fresh leaves. Adequate portion. My partner chose the beetroot burger which he said was lovely, although didn't think the "fermented" slaw was fermented. We both enjoyed the rosemary fries. Dessert was chocolate cherry pecan brownie for me and guinness cake for him. Neither were particularly fresh. Our main complaint was the number of menu choices which weren't available. We booked at 12:45 so not like middle of the afternoon. Overall what we had was adequate for the cost.

    The food was delicious and the cakes marvellous. Portion sizes of the main meals were a bit small for the price. However I was disappointed by the service - we were given a table by the service station which was very noisy and when we asked to move no one got back to us despite there being other tables. They forgot our drinks and only had the tiniest pot of tomato sauce. Staff seemed distracted or hurried or new and even though there were lots of staff the service and attentiveness was low. The person seating you was a aloof and not welcoming but thankfully one waitress at the end saved the day as she knew the menu and how to be a helpful and efficient waitress!

    Delicious food which you can tell is freshly made to order, lovely ingredient combinations which worked perfectly. I had the mussels in cider which were delicious, a good sized portion and reasonably priced. The service was cheerful and prompt and the log fire in the outside area added to the atmosphere. I’d definitely go again,
