Great ambiance. Comfortable seating. Super nice people. Food is outstanding and the portions are modest so you're not stuffing yourself. We go there fairly often and have never been disappointed.

Went for a late Sunday Brunch. The food was really lovely with each dish prepared well. They have a unique menu that allows you to order multiple dishes from a defined three course menu for a fixed price of $35, inclusive of a Mimosa. Best Avocado Ricotta toast have had in years. I had Bronzino with Succotash that was perfectly cooked, my partner had the Short Ribs with Mac and Cheese as a second course and Lox and Bagel for his first. We both had dessert - he the carrot cake which he said was perfectly balanced between icing and cake. I had the flourless chocolate cake, warmed, with home made whipped creme. We could have ordered other dishes but really, were both very full and satisfied.

listen, I cannot say enough about BSF bc i feel it is THE BEST RESTAURANT IN BUCKS!!! I realize that when i do give it kudos that i am making it more difficult for me to get my own reservation but i feel so strongly about this place. The chefs are the most amazing and talented around so i hope they are there on a permanent basis if u know what i mean! the grounds are beautiful, the inn owners and help are wonderful and i feel that they all love what they are doing.....it really shows! the dinners which will run APPROX 150.00 incl tip from appetizers to dessert for 2 people is so well worth it in my book.........no need to go into Philly for a good meal EVER bc you cannot find a dining place that comes anywhere close to Barley Sheaf Farm restaurant!

We had a great meal in a unique setting. Our server was quick to ask about food allergies and diligent in determining what would work and what might create an issue. We had a Birthday Pak discount that was cheerfully applied. A great special occasion location.

Very nice meal, with lots of attention from servers and management. My husband and I each had 4 courses - salad, app and entree, followed by dessert. More than we'd usually order, but it was my birthday - something we didn't share with the restaurant. I think the level of service we received was consistent with other diners. My husband can't stop raving about his entree. He had the beef special, served over a green pureed bed. He can't believe he LIKED kale pureed with miso. I had a young pork dish, served two ways - pork loin and pork belly - also excellent. We'll remember to add this restaurant to our go-to list for special occasions.

We visited Barley Sheaf for dinner this past weekend and loved it . Appetizers, entrees and dessert were all prepared well. The service was great! My dad actually said the whole experience was just as good, if not better, than a Michelin star restaurant we recently visited on vacation. I’d definitely recommend.

A wonderful spot for a special brunch with friends! Loved that it was BYOB which allowed for the mimosas to keep flowing through the entire time. Very well timed service that never made us feel rushed or neglected and we were there for about 2 hours. Would definitely recommend for a fun brunch with close friends.

My wife and I had a wonderful meal here recently on a Friday night. The food was fantastic and the experience was well augmented by the gracious service. Most of the ingredients were locally sourced, but I strayed a little farther for my entree at the suggestion of our server. I had the Iberico pork loin which may have been the most tender meat I have ever eaten.

We will we definitely go back.

I have eaten here many times, and the food never disappoints. The selection isn't large, but there is always something interesting to try. Salmon is not a staple on the menu, but when they do it as a special, they really do it right. I had salmon poached in olive oil. It was unbelievably good. Their octopus appetizer is always great, and the chef changes up the way he preps it every so often, which is appreciated.

My wife and I completely and totally enjoyed our Brunch, our server Paul was a perfect waiter and a very good at explaining any and all questions put to him. He discussed with us the origins and founding of the restaurant/bed and breakfast plus all the amenities that are offered.
This is a hidden gem that should be tried by any and all foodies or those just looking for a quiet getaway away from the crowds.

We celebrated our 15th Anniversary with dinner at The Barley Sheaf Inn. The entire experience could not have been more perfect. Patrick provided on-point service with humor. We enjoyed a genuine conversation with Mark, the owner (best wishes for your daughter's wedding this weekend!). Every bite that exited the kitchen was well-thought out and exquisitely prepared. The flavor pairings, fresh ingredients, portions and plating were all perfect. If you have not tried The Barley Sheaf, I highly recommend it... you won't be disappointed. We'll be returning to try the brunch sometime soon!

It all felt very special from the moment we walked into the inn. It reminded me of any 5 star restaurant experience I have had in my home city, NYC, without the NYC 5 star prices, although not inexpensive. This is very unusual for the area and we were so happy to have discovered it. Mark is owner and apparently keeps everything running smoothly and professionally in a warm and friendly manner. We planned a regular night out, but instead had a very special experience. The food, the service, the space all fantastic. I feel this is a place we will continue to come back to time and again. Thank you Mark and team!
