AMAZING food. So glad we got to book a meal here before change of ownership.
Enjoyed a lovely evening of superb food, simply perfect service and warming atmosphere, I cannot think of anything to criticise!
Our waitress was so genuine and friendly, and went the extra mile.
Our son was in a local respite centre for the evening, so we chose this restaurant to treat ourselves!
We will be gutted to not return but wish everyone all the luck with their future endeavours. We will definitely keep an eye out on social media as informed by our waitress!
If you can get a table before next sat (end march 2017) you MUST go!! Thank you to the chef and all the staff for a lovely evening.
A lovely place. One of our favourite restaurant ever. Shame the current owners are shutting up shop.
Chilly and dark. Table not prepared. Forgot water. Didn't know about menu and nuts or flavours of ice cream available. Friendly enough though. Parsnips undergone. Yorkshires overdone.
Another good experience from this venue. Real shame it is closing the doors in March. Would highly recommend a visit before it is lost to us.
Firm favourite of ours. It didn't disappoint on Valentines Day!
Go hungry as the portion sizes are filling!
Amazing place as always. Cannot fault this place. How it's closing down in the next few weeks is beyond me. This is / was the best restaurant in Medway by quite some distance.
Will be missed.
It was my first visit and will certainly not be my last. The decor and ambience was charming.
The service was excellent and the food was delicious. The main course was a little cold so dropped one star.
It wasn't a cheap lunch but would certainly recommend the venue. We would like to return for an evening meal.
The food at the restaurant was excellent and the service friendly and attentive. I would visit it again and recommend it. My husband is very hard to please and he was very impressed.
Been a few times before for birthdays, special occasions and Sunday lunch. Hadn't been for a couple of months so fancied a treat. Lovely Sunday lunch I'd say not for every week but worth as a treat. Have also tried the tasting menu which was wonderful as a special treat.
Visited the Barn on Friday night for a special occasion my wife's birthday, the food and service was good, but sadly it was very quiet with very little ambience. We felt it was a bit over priced for what we had, it hasn't put us off but we would like to see the prices come down a bit for this area
The menu is under stated, the food is exquisite and the service friendly. A wonderful dining experience.
very good food at a reasonable price good service nice atmosphere
Lovely restaurant with a good atmosphere. Food was delicious and waitresses very accommodating with our needs.
Only criticism would be that it's very dark so we needed to use the lights on our phones to read the menu!!
I've been desperate to eat here for a while and boy was it worth the wait! The menu selection is concise but between my partner and I we didn't have a single dish that wasn't delicious! The food was beautifully plated of generous portion and piping hot. Wait staff needed to be prompted for additional drinks would be my only minor grumble. This being said all staff were friendly and polite I would 100% recommend!
Fantastic food, location, and great service. I took a business guest for lunch and even though we were only given the set Christmas lunch / dinner menu, it did not disappoint. Both myself and my guest were of the opinion that this was so much better than any chain restaurants we'd recently attended, with particular attention to detail on the complexity of the dishes. Really, really good food and I can't wait to return with either my wife, or another business guest.
We thought that charging £15 extra for the Christmas menu on Saturdays was a bit cheeky and not justified by the meal.
I booked the barn through open table for my boyfriends 31st birthday! I have been here before so I knew the service and food would be fantastic! We were presented with a set menu which was an offer that was too good to turn down! I would highly recommend this for any occasion as the food is second to none and the service is exceptional!
Great food, always something new to try!
Friendly staff and very good value for a Sunday lunch that's just a bit special.
The food was very good, as was the service. Very nice decor, felt very relaxed. However, we did feel it was overpriced and would go there more if it were not so expensive
We have been to the Barn for a number of years for special occasions. Whilst the food was very well presented the portions were extremely small and very expensive for what was received e.g the duck was £22 but I didn't have a whole breast just two small duck portions with one tiny carrot and a parsnip luckily we ordered more veg separately. Dessert again very pretty but not worth £7 3 tiny slices of banana and popcorn praline for me
Really good food,nicely priced and good service.would recommended any day
We wanted somewhere special for our anniversary and the Barn delivered the perfect setting for this. We had a taster menu that was, by far, one of the best we have ever tasted. The service from the front of house staff was very attentive and we were made to feel that the restaurant wanted to share our special day with us.
Wonderful food, full of favour in a beautiful setting
The food was cooked to perfection and presentation was outstanding. Excellent and unusual pairings of flavours. Service is always excellent too.
Booked for my mum and dads 50th wedding anniversary read all the reviews so was very excited to try the food, service was very good the barn was very pretty but was disappointed with the food. Thought the prices were quite expensive for an ok meal, had steak which was somewhat chewy not terrible but left feeling that I wouldn't return or recommend.
This restaurant is trying to be 'high end' but not quite making it. The food was not 'fine dining' yet the prices indicate that it will be! The menu on line is completely different to that offered in the restaurant - when questioned I was told the on-line menu is a sample as their menu is seasonal. However, the on-line menu sounded very appetising, which is one of the reasons for booking, yet the actual menu on the evening bore no resemblance to the on-line menu, and nothing really appealed to me on the actual menu which was very disappointing.
Small touches were also amiss such as our table being the only table without a candle, I also had to ask for some butter with the bread (others already had it on their table) plus the bread was just plain sliced brown or white. I would have expected different types of small bread roles for this type of restaurant.
The restaurant is trying to be something it isn't. It needs to improve on the menu and quality of food, plus get the little touches right before charging London prices.
Its a shame, as it has a lot of potential.
Was disappointed with service and quality of some of the food! Firstly someone was already on our table, slow service and tough meat! Not friendly service
Chairs were not comfortable service not as good as normal late in giving bread no wine glasses on table
Pleasant surroundings,friendly and helpful staff and very good food-hot and presented well
This meal was a gift from our son. The meal was outstanding, with varied choices, good food pairings and was cooked to perfection and presented beautifully. We will be making another booking soon and are already looking forward to it.
Woulf never go again, never tasted steak so tough in my life was like leather!!
Yet again a beautiful meal at The Barn. Excellent food and a warm welcome at our favourite special restaurant.
Slow to be seated starters OK Tbone steak on menu that I had was very very small and thin not good value
Booking was easy. Directions easy to follow.warm welcoming atmosphere ,staff friendly and attentive without being intrusive and very helpful. We were able to relax and enjoy our visit.
Such a lovely evening dining at the barn. Service was excellent as was the food. Will be recommending to friends and family. Will also be returning in the near future.
Great Sunday lunch, good value for a special Sunday lunch
Use the Barn as our special place. We have never been disappointed always leave very happy having spent a delightful evening.
Only just recently discovered this restaurant and so glad we have. The food is delicious and all tastes well catered for. I am gluten intolerant but that was not a problem for the chef I could eat the same as everyone else with just a little tweek on accompaniments of the meal
Lovely meal would recommend
one complaint the bench seating very uncomfortable
