This restaurant is known for it's steak - so that's what we ordered. It was delicious and cooked exactly as we asked for. Great atmosphere.

Had rump and fillet steak. Rump was ordered medium but was well done. However very tasty and tender. Rather expensive for what it was as sides were baked potato and salad which which was probably pre prepared. Also had to pay 4.50 for sauce.

My wife and I had a steak for dinner. It was okay -- nothing special considering the asked price. We also had some roasted potatoes, but unfortunately they were quite tasteless. Yet, the local wine we ordered was very nice.

We select the best export quality beef available in the country. Our preference is for beef that is finished on grass as this provides meat with maximum flavor, just as nature intended. What we do differently at the Barn is that we age our beef on the premises for 8 weeks or longer. When you consider the work, the cost, the waste, is it really worthwhile to age beef for a long time? Most people and places say beef is aged when it is two weeks old. Like great wines that improve for 50 years, great beef gets sweeter, more tender and acquires a taste that cannot be duplicated except with proper aging.
