The holiday lights that decorated the barn are beautiful, and we enjoyed an evening with perfect dinner music. Thanks for adding some sparkle to our new years weekend!

Good, but busy and loud, pub at the foot of Black Mountain ski resort. Excellent, friendly and fast service and good prices. Get there early, as the place is very popular and fills up fast. Good live music as well.

The atmosphere is great here, it is an old barn renovated to the restaurant. Food was ok, nothing outstanding, but the staff and atmosphere make up for it. Call ahead because they close for private functions.
