Is this a joke? You failed to tell us that the place had ceased trading some time ago. Thanks for nothing.
A friendly welcome, good service and a nicely balanced menu. What more can one want?
Always love a visit to The Riverbarn, one of my favourite places. Great food and a wonderful atmosphere.
Charming staff and high quality food in a pleasant location
My family are regular diners at the Riverside Barn and we have never been less than 100% satisfied with the delicious food, the friendly and personal service and attention to individual needs and culinary preferences. Can't recommend it highly enough!
Booked there to meet up with friends of long standing, it's a fairly regular thing we do trying out new places for good food and ambience. This didn't disappoint. My wife has already told all her work colleagues so I guess that speaks for itself.
This is the first time we have been to Riverbarn, wonderful surprise to find a local restaurant that offers fine dining. The food is delicious. Price for dinner (2courses) with wine was same price as eating at over priced PUB up the road and 100% more delicious and relaxing. Can’t wait to go back.
Excellent meal; good choice of dishes, beautifully cooked and presented by Head Chef, Jonny and Sous Chef, Tom using locally sourced ingredients. Great ambience, a real gem of a locally run family business with Jill & Ian (Mum & Dad) working effortlessly at front of house to ensure professional service and they also enjoy a good rapport with clientele. A very special place plus Riverbarn has rooms to stay too, so great for special occasions!
The food was really delicious and the service excellent. The best food we have eaten in this area for a long time. We would thoroughly recommend this restaurant.
Everything about the Riverbarn is just excellent, our favourite place to eat out. Thanks folks.
This restaurant is amazing and the service is fantasitc. Will defiantly be back
One of the best aspects of this gem of a place was that there was no piped music. Wonderful! Very good food.
A fantastic and wonderful venue. Food that is outstanding and seasonal. Great value and well worth the journey from afar.
Yet again a warm welcome, great service, delicious food all freshly cooked, a real gem in a beautiful area. We will be back. Thank you
We have always found the Riverbarn to provide wonderful menus at reasonable prices and the staff are very attentive and helpful but not overbearing.
Would recommend to anyone.
Food was amazing and they accommodated our request to simplify a meal for our 5 y/old.
Delicious food, can't believe I haven't visited before! Will definitely be back.
We thought the food was excellent but felt that the lighting in the area we were in could have been a little dimmer for a more cosy ambience. Everyone of our party enjoyed their food choices, beautifully cooked and not over seasoned, the natural flavours shone. The venison was beautifully tender with a delicious sauce that didn't overpower it. Overall a lovely dining experience in rural Wiltshire.
Consistently outstanding food and excellent service.
Superb experience all round.we will be back.
This place was absolutely fantastic!!! The brother cook amazingly!!!
We will definitely be heading back to the Riverbarn soo. The food was exceptional, the staff friendly Dan informed and the atmosphere perfect!
A friendly welcome and excellent food in an environment that has all the right elements to make you feel comfortable and well looked after. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal. Thank you.
Food was beautifully cooked with some unusual taste combinations which worked really well. Presentation was excellent and it was great to chat with our hosts.
Honest, FRESH, local, genuine, unassuming, understated in a nice way. What's not to like?
Delightful oasis in Fonthill Bishop with pretty garden and good car parking that is easily accessible from the A303. Quality ingredients and service with good wine list and bottled beer selection all served in a leisurely pace. Booking probably essential at peak times. Hope to visit again - thankyou.
Second visit to this charming restaurant. We will be back, excellent again. Thank you
The owners of the restaurant were absolutely lovely, incredibly welcoming and charming. The menu was not large, but just packed with really tempting food - we took ages to make our choices. The food was terrific, beautifully cooked and presented. I eat out a lot, so it's hard to find a place which is excellent without being exorbitantly expensive and/or very snooty. The Riverbarn is simply a lovely place, with a lovely team who serve really interesting and excellent food - at a reasonable price. Seek them out, you won't be disappointed.
Very accommodating, we had a toddler and two dogs and nothing was too much trouble.
Excellent and will defiantly go back.
We had an excellent three course meal, very tasty and well presented
Lovely small friendly family run restaurant, delicious food, good menu, wonderful service. A great place to meet up with friends, lovers, marrieds (old and young) etc., one of the best in the area! Highly recommended.
excellent for carnivores and vegetarians - and such well presented and delicious food. a little heavy handed with shellfish - worth noting that many fish eaters don't go for shellfish, so don't ruin a good dish with mussels!
good ambience too.
I will be back
loved it! A truly dog friend pub. Friendly staff and fantastic food. One of the best roasts I had in a while.
From the moment we arrived the owners and staff treated us like long lost friends. The meal was excellent
Very enjoyable lunch in attractive surroundings-lovely family restaurant with food cooked specially to a high standard-will bring the family next time.
Our first visit, and we couldn't fault it...the food was superb.
Delicious dinner to celebrate a big birthday. Will definitely be back and have already recommended to friends.
This restaurant just gets better and better. All the staff are very friendly and attentive. The food is of the highest quality.
Love this place. Small, charming, family-run restaurant serving excellent food in the heart of the beautiful Wiltshire countryside. Ian and Jill are very friendly and welcoming and their sons Jonny and Tom produce magic from the kitchen. Always a wonderful experience!
This was our third visit to this charming restaurant. The food is excellent and beautifully served and the atmosphere is very friendly. We highly recommend
The Riverbarn for lunch or dinner.
