Didn't know I was going here but it was a nice surprise. From outside its just a barn, but inside the wrinkly lights are gorgeous and I think in the evening will look spectacular. It's olde worse inside with a log fire.

We went to the Barn for lunch and when we walked in we were a little dubious as we were the only ones in. But we did not need to worry as it soon filled up. What a delightful find it was. We had attentive service from a very charming and polite young man. Delicious food and on a very... More

We had a superb meal of fish and chips. Presented beautifully too. Even the childrens fish and chips was excellent. Only criticism is the staff seemed inexperienced young girls, not eager to welcome you or engage in conversation.

While driving from Berwick upon Tweed (nearly Scotland) to Scarborough we noticed the number of cars parked here, turned in and was not disappointed. The food was great, and also the coffee. Next time we visit Scarborough we will be back.

Went in for lunch and the menu was appealing. We had eggs on toast and sandwiches and chips. The building is lovely and food tasty.

Our daughter took us to The Barn on Christmas Eve (2016) for a lunchtime meal. My wife had 'smoked haddock with poached eggs'. This comes with a hollandaise sauce - which my wife did not have; preferring her food plain. On this occasion my wife would have scored the meal 5 out of 5. The piece of haddock on that... More

Being fairly regular visitors to the Barn we were rather surprised to be turned away this morning because unbeknown to us we had arrived 15 minutes before opening time at 11 am. Now we have visited the Barn for morning coffee several times over the past two or three months ( as recently as three or four weeks ago) always... More

My wife and I attended in December for lunch. We had seen some reviews online and thought why not! The barn's setting was lovely, and although we arrived at 12 noon, there were still a fair few customers enjoying a morning coffee and cake. We sat upstairs and found it difficult to choose what to have from the menu. The... More
