The Barrel is a family-owned-and-run local Pub.
Food served 6 days a week. There is a large beer garden with children's play area. A wide selection of products and real ales are served. A car park is also available.
Went in for tea today; fantastic service. Food was lovely, well presented, and a good price. Staff couldn't do enough for us. Would recommend highly. Thanks. Tuesday 25th January 2022.
There's new owners now.
Had a meal in September with family - food was fantastic & really good prices. Carvery was lovely, staff brill & love the new makeover. Would recommend to all.
Do not eat here. We booked a month in advance to have our annual Christmas lunch after a morning walk. We queued at the bar to be served by the only barman.
We had booked for between 1PM and 1:30PM. The last of us got their main course at 3:40PM. They had fish and chips, or rather fish and batter. They complained.
My steak tasted as though it had been tenderised and cooked the night before. It was served with cold chips and frozen onion rings. Nothing else. It cost £10. It was advertised as rump steak served with seasonal vegetables.
Those of us having turkey were lucky. They got served first. The vegetables were cold and the turkey was dry and crumbly.
The vegetables ran out before the salmon meals were served and it was cold.
We complained. The landlady would not reduce the cost of these poor meals. She made the excuse that they were under new management, that it was her first week and the that the chef was new. Someone with no apology was given and there was no offer of compensation. We asked for an address to write to but the landlady was unable to provide a true one.
We reluctantly paid and left without our puddings. It was by then nearly tea time anyway.
What a disappointing and dire experience. Poor service, bad, cold and expensive food.
Never in all my years of going in the Barrel have I ever met such a rude and horrible landlady. She acts like a petulant child if anyone complains about any little thing. Do not waste your time going there.
