Open Sunday lunchtimes - awesome Sunday lunch! Booking is a must. Closed Monday and also (I think) Tuesdays. Visit their website or give them a call. The Barn beef and brisket are to die for!

To be honest, for the enviroment, food quality & choice I don't think it's expensive. As they say, you "get what you pay for". Their menu is priced up on their website, I'm sure you'll enjoy your evening.

Yes, very good food, you must book as they tend to spread the bookings over the evening, so that you get their full attention.
