We went for Brunch and everything was spectacular. the grounds are beautiful, the restaurant is very nice with no tables on top of each other, the service was great and the food spectacular. There were 5 in our party and everyone enjoyed their meal. The Brunch is 3 courses but the Server asks if you want to try any additional items. We did and would have kept eating if we weren't filled. Even the cider donut they gave us each on the way out was great. We will be returning asap!

We have been trying to get a reservation here for a very long time. Service, atmosphere were outstanding. This restaurant fits right into our bucks county area! Food was good but a little salty for me, especially since my husband ordered my dish low salt. Prices on the high side. Over all ok.

Wonderful experience top to bottom! Welcomed at the front door by the owner and we’ll taken care of during the entire meal by the fantastic wait staff. Small and cozy dining room with a view of the farm. The food was imaginative and for the quality, fairly priced. We loved this restaurant and plan on returning.

Perfect Bucks County Inn dining experience. Great place to celebrate an occasion or to enjoy a superb meal in a quiet quaint environment. The staff and owners were very friendly and professional. We celebrated my wife's birthday on a recommendation and she was extremely pleased with the experience. We look forward to returning for brunch in the spring as we will be able to enjoy the views of the grounds.

I enjoy this brunch so much. the choices were interested and some unusual. Everything came hot and delicious. My only complaint would be the potatoes which were way overdone but the bacon was delicious. I had a wonderful arugula salad and a frittata. The pastries that came to the table were a perfect size and very tasty. The price was perfect. Go and enjoy!!!!

The Barley Sheaf is a beautiful inn on a bucolic Bucks farm. The interior has potential, but needs some TLC. The reception room could be lovely, but candlesticks are askew, lightbulbs are burnt out in some wall sconces, and there is a great deal of clutter by the desks. The coat rack to the side of the room also detracts from its elegance. The dining room is also elegant, but again, needs just a little updating. The menu choices are food, and almost all sounds appetizing. The food itself is delicious, but the portion sizes were rather small for what you get. We had three courses each and could left wanting more.

Thank you very much for your feedback/decorative suggestions. The coat rack is something we have added given our limited space - and would love to eliminate (which we do in the warmer months). Yes, admittedly there are things we can do to enhance the ambience and will do so. In terms of food, I assume you meant that the choices are good and not "food". In regards to portion sizes, we are consistent with nutritional guidelines and overwhelming feedback is that they love the portion sizes.

We had dinner at Barley Sheaf the day after Valentine's Day. The 1700s inn is quite a romantic setting, especially the front room where there are just a few tables for two. We were slightly early for our reservation, and were invited to sip our wine in the inn's parlor, which includes a display of memorabilia from the inn's many famous guests in the 1930s and 40s. The menu is diverse, and the food is amazing, with everything prepared on-site. I enjoyed a petit lobster tail appetizer special and duck breast entree with root vegetables and a subtle sauce that perfectly complimented the duck. My wife enjoyed a mixed green salad followed by the halibut entree with ramps and its own perfect sauce. Deserts were excellent, and were followed by a plate of selected handmade candies for each of us and a rose for my wife. The staff couldn't be friendlier or more helpful. Barley Sheaf does not disappoint.

I have had the opportunity to dine at several restaurants in the area so my write up is based on my prior experience. Going to Barley my expectation was fine dining with unique ingredients and flavor. I found all 3 courses very bland. The gnocchi was not very good and the poached lobster needed seasoning. The restaurant was quant but the service not to the expected level for true fine dining. It is a nice place with caring management but not to my fine dining standards.
