We stayed in the deluxe spa room and had a superior experience. Dinner at the steakhouse was also a treat. Highly recommend.

The steaks here were outstanding however the atmosphere wasn’t family friendly. It seemed there was an expectation we certainly didn’t know about of either a dress standard or adult only environment because other patrons seemed to stare my family with intimidating looks. It was quite...More

Hi Alison, We welcome families and there is no dress code. Especially during the holiday season a high proportion of our diners are families and many are very casually dressed and enjoy the experience. We offer a children's menu for $14.50 which includes two courses....More

We stayed here during a trip from Melbourne to Adelaide and it is a couple of km out of town. This isn’t a problem because there isn’t an excellent restaurant (and as it happened we had torrential rain the day we stayed), but generally on...More

Was nicely presented and food was great. Little bit upmarket for travellers in caravans looking for a nice meal, but staff were great nonetheless. Well worth the effort.

Great local produce, with most of the meat on the menu sourced from the farm. This is up there with the best steaks I've had. Definitely a must if you are visiting the area.

We select the best export quality beef available in the country. Our preference is for beef that is finished on grass as this provides meat with maximum flavor, just as nature intended. What we do differently at the Barn is that we age our beef on the premises for 8 weeks or longer. When you consider the work, the cost, the waste, is it really worthwhile to age beef for a long time? Most people and places say beef is aged when it is two weeks old. Like great wines that improve for 50 years, great beef gets sweeter, more tender and acquires a taste that cannot be duplicated except with proper aging.
