2 Rosette restaurant
Dogs welcome

Surrounded by lawns stretching down to the river, The Riverbarn is the central hub of the village of Fonthill Bishop. Parts of the converted barns are 600 years old and it has been operated as a business for the last 100 years. Bedrooms are well appointed, and the thatched 'Granary’ offers high quality accommodation just a few minutes across the road. This is also a family-run restaurant, where chef brothers create stylish and imaginative dishes. The excellent food has been awarded two AA Rosettes.
