We visited for morning coffee and scones at the end of our holidays and were impressed on all levels. The Barn has been converted into a most attractive space for a café and the lighting and overall décor, plus high standard food and service would seem to make it a most appealing venue to visit on the summer weekend evenings...

We reserved table here for lunch so we could gave a catch-up, we were shown upstairs to our table, it was fairly quiet then. The staff were pleasant and took our orders promptly, the wait for the food was not too long assuming it was being cooked fresh. I had the burger from the specials board, with blue cheese. It...

We pitched up on a Sunday just before two o'clock looking for a sandwich but they were only serving Sunday lunch. We decided to stay and boy, are we glad we did. Utterly delicious and really nice service. Best roast dinner I've had in a long, long, long time.

Called in for lunch after hearing good reports. I had smoked haddock with poached eggs from a varied menu. It was fantastic, see image of half eaten dish. The staff were really helpful, the service was excellent, the food arrived quickly & hot, All round, a great experience and will visit again. Recommended.

Popped into The Barn after seeing it on our way to Scarborough. Very friendly welcome and great service. Food was fantastic; my better half said it was the best sandwich she'd ever had! Would definitely recommend.

Lunch, Sunday. Prices 'average' for a roast; quality of food - outstanding! The accompanying veges are plentiful and stunning!!! All of us left very satisfied and full (and I have a big stomach to fill). Between us we tried several of the meals available. I felt that the range of drinks is a bit limited, but I wouldn't want to... More

Went for breakfast on Saturday morning, what a lovely place. We were staying in Scarborough and decided to venture a little out of town for breakfast after reading the reviews on here. The service was friendly and unobtrusive and the room itself has a really nice feel. We had the haddock with side orders of granary toast and also couldn't... More

I had mid-morning coffee here with my family intending to have a cheese scone. However I found the breakfast rolls irresistible and had one with Cumberland chipolata sausages, which was excellent. My double espresso was good and so was the service.

On Friday evenings (up to 1900hrs) through July and August the Barn are putting on Tapas evenings. For two with three dishes and a small jug of sangria the price is £20. We were easily tempted to have more with seven dishes between three and were not over filled. The variety of dishes was excellent: kalamari, mussels, belly pork, halloumi,... More

Dont go there if you just need a coffee and a light bite. You will be treated like third class citizens. They are not interested unless you are having meals and spending a fortune. Will not go back there.
