Loved the shrimp lettuce wraps. A “special” worthy of the menu. Scallops a delicious entree. Always a pleasure to dine here.

Inn at Barley Sheaf never fails to impress. Food is innovative, service is polite and knowledgable and the ambience is sophisticated. The owners really understand the importance of social distancing and can accommodate outside dining tastefully. Highly recommended.

Was especially impressed with the service. Bonnie was excellent in tending to our needs. Loved the fact that one of the owners took the time to greet guests. We will be back.

There are two rooms in the restaurant, one of which has many tables and views of the garden as well as an open kitchen, and is entertaining to be in. There is another room that is part of the main house which is small, quiet, and nicely decorated, good for a romantic dinner. That is where we were seated. The dining staff should ask which room their patrons wish to be in, and that was not the case. I love my husband, but after coming out of a year lockdown, the last thing I wanted was to be sitting in a quiet room.

Buddy - thanks for the feedback. Glad you enjoyed dinner. In regards to seating, on Fridays/Saturdays - we cannot provide options given how busy the restaurant is on those nights - it is much easier to provide options on weekdays. Also, for that evening you were here - the plan was to have all seating outside on the patio - but given the high winds, we provided limited (given COVID restrictions) seating indoors. Thanks again!

Barley Sheaf is such a wonderful place to go especially for a special occasion. They go out of their way to do all they can to make everything to your satisfaction. The treats at the end of the meal could substitute for dessert but don't deny yourself if there is something tempting on the menu. You won't be disappointed!

It was nice to be back for brunch and to be welcomed with a personal greeting! It was a beautiful day so it was a shame we could not be seated outside, but the inside was appropriately socially distanced inside and our lovely server was happy to adjust the air conditioning in the warm sunshine. We were spoilt for choice on the menu and again we appreciate the flexibility of moving our savory choices from the 3rd course to the second course and let us eat the decadent cinnamon Brioche French Toast for our 3rd course and yes there was still dessert, which my friend and I could not finish and took home for later with the remaining baked goods and the delicious parting gift of homemade donuts. The Mahi Mahi and the Eggs Benedict with Smoked Salmon were excellently prepared. We cannot wait to return to this lovely setting and enjoy another brunch or dinner.

Mark and Deena continue to serve some of the best, if not the plates in Bucks County. We dined in the barn and it was a wonderful setting with the beautiful grounds outside every window. We can’t wait to come back and sit out back on the patio!

We were disappointed with the food. Maybe the very limited menu is due to the pandemic? I ordered the very bland halibut with some sort of muddy sauce that was inedible. It came with mushrooms and no other vegetables. My husband's duck was a little better but I don't care for sweet sauces. I told the waitress I didn't like my entree and she was so concerned and offered to get me something else. In retrospect, I should have taken her up on it but hate to be waiting while my husband would be finishing his meal and then have to eat mine alone. I note that others found the halibut to be bland so why not just fix the entree? Plus the other entree choices weren't that inviting. Lamb neck?? For an appetizer I had the carrot soup which had a lot of overpowering garnish that made it seem like eating a sea of seeds. Gotta say that was disappointing too. The chocolate pudding cake was very good. In all, it was a very pricey meal for what we got. The service was good. The waitress and host were very attentive. Maybe the subpar food was due to the pandemic?
The setting is so incredible with a gorgeous tree-lined drive but I'm not so crazy with the cluttered look of the living room we entered to get to the restaurant. The first thing you see when you walk in is a tiny bathroom with the door opened.
I had been so excited about trying the place out as it's a hallmark setting in Bucks County. So sad that it wasn't better.

Brilliant setting! Smart to have moved the restaurant into the barn. Above and beyond covid compliant. Felt very safe. Food, as usual, was superb. Staff always pleasant and helpful...especially when describing the menu.
So many restaurants to choose from in our area though few that serve such creative and brilliantly prepared choices.
I left a $55 cash tip on a $220 bill forgetting that an 18% gratuity was included in the total. My bad as it is clearly stated on the menu. Oh well, it was worth it!
Thanks to the owners and staff for always providing a very pleasurable (and yummy) visit! Looking forward to brunch on the 28th ...5th visit this month!

Its always one of the best bunches in the area. The property is beautiful, the food is amazing, the staff are always just the right amount of attentive without being over bearing. Always a fantastic experience, with zero negatives. Don't forget you can bring your own booze, and you should! Gratuity is always included, but I always give some extra because they do such a wonderful job.

We can never say enough about how Mark & Dina have adapted dining at Barley Sheaf to keep everyone comfortable. Our meals were excellent as usual and we dined in their large barn used for weddings. Spaced out and decorated to make it more appealing. We can't wait to get back into the mansion dinin room. Our thanks to the staff for always providing a nice experience.

Great location in Bucks County. Very nice people working there.
Food - Bread needed to be heated a little more. Cold in the middle
The Halibut I had was excellent but the sauce was a little salty.
It is a little pricey but at this time just getting out , the prices were not a concern. I am not a fan of the 18% Gratuity for two people. After a few glasses of wine I forgot about it even though they have it on the menu and the bill. So the wait staff ended up with a nice tip. Not a big deal but rarely do you see this anymore. The guest should be allowed to tip accordingly. Would really like to visit the Inn next time which is across from the restaurant.
Thank you.

Stayed for an overnight for Valentine's Day. Had dinner which was wonderful. The room was clean and comfortable. Breakfast the next morning was delicious. We had Preslee as our server both for dinner and breakfast, she was very friendly and courteous. The husband and wife owners do a very nice job!

A wonderful experience for Valentines day. As a doc, I am very focused on a safe experience and it was delivered! The food was very good and the shrimp and grits was great. There was so much food we had to take dessert home. We stayed here 8 years ago and the hospitality is still great.
