Have had two really good meals in the restaurant and another evening enjoying a glass of wine. This is a great pub and we’re looking forward to returning when it reopens

This is our third visit to the Barley Sheaf and it has never disappointed us. The food is superb, great value and the service is friendly but still very professional. We are delighted to support such a good chef and will happily re visit just as soon as we are allowed to !! With all the lovely food on the menu, I would happily go every week !!

Lovely night at the barley sheaf, food was lovely, a bit pricey for what we got. Fish was a bit greasy, less tartare sauce, more mushy peas.

A lovely meal. We ate in the upstairs dining room. The service was first class, nothing was too much trouble and we felt safe. A respectable distance was maintained and all staff wore masks/visors.
The food was super. Beautifully presented and extremly tasty. I especially loved the fried whitebait with spicy mayo for my starter. Our mains of Cornish Hake and Pork Loin steaks were cooked to perfection.
I can thoroughly recommend a meal here.

Lovely clean and covid safe eatery. We were there mid week lunchtime.
The food was very good, it would have benefitted from some background music as it was almost too quiet. Not many other diners.

We went after a rave review, so expecting great things. Food was ok! One member of staff was quite rude, with a mask on you could tell she was being sarcastic! I wouldn’t recommend for gluten free! So not impressed!

Fabulous waitresses who remembered that I was gluten free from my online booking and were able to recommend dishes without being asked.
Lovely choices of tasty food.
Only criticism was the side dish my friend had, of warm potatoes and broccoli with a cold salad on top.

The Barley Sheaf are coping with Covid restrictions really well.
We had a table for four. Distant from other diners. very comfortable and lovely atmosphere. very attentive staff and good humoured. Food was quotes "wow this is top restaurant standard". We enjoyed the experience. We had eaten here earlier in the week - table for 6 on that occasion.

We visited here with friends for dinner when we were staying at a nearby campsite. The menu was not extensive but still plenty of choice. The food was very good and we had planned to return for Sunday lunch but our trip got curtailed due to prevailing wind !! The only criticism we had was that it is a dog friendly place , which is fine, but whilst I find dogs acceptable in a bar I dont like dogs in the actual eating area but this wouldnt stop me from returning.

Staff didn't seem to communicate very well with each other. They didnt seem to know who was doing what and when. We were sat next to a group of locals who were very rude and argumentative. As we were with our two young children this made us feel rather uneasy. Staff didn't seem to be able to handle them very well.

The food was good. Although the menu itself was pretty basic. It arrived very hot and the sticky toffee pudding was particularly yummy.

Unfortunately we wouldn't choose to eat there again.
