200-year-old history with contemporary refinements
At a glance
AA Pick of the Pubs
Barn is what it’s called, because barn is what it was. The original flagstones reflect its 200 years of history, but now it’s a light and modern gastro-pub, the dramatic interior styled in granite, pewter and oak. Stone steps lead from the bar to the main dining area with brick walls and high oak beams, while the open mezzanine level offers a good view of the glass-fronted kitchen. The menu successfully blends classic British with Mediterranean ideas, such as sharing plates of meze. A sample of starters includes smoked haddock fishcake, poached egg, wilted spinach and hollandaise; and bourbon and maple syrup glazed baby back ribs. Follow with chicken Kiev with watercress and garlic butter; ricotta and vegetable Wellington; or crispy Korean chicken salad. The patio garden is perfect for outdoor dining.
