Disappointed! food was not brilliant understand the COVID restrictions but this doesn’t affect the quality of the food! Expensive for pub grub!
Been coming for over 10yrs always looked forward to going to The Red Barn but doubt we’ll be returning! What’s with the no dog policy? Understand inside but outside! It’s a shame such a big let down.

Issue with food but manager resolved quickly. Chicken curry wasn’t great for the cost. As prices are comparable with the bay hotel brasserie the expectation is that quality should be higher, but the barn has a way to go on that yet.
Location is great and in the past have eaten here usually more than once each holiday but now down to one visit per break for the above reasons.

From walking through the door to leaving we had an amazing experience. We had pre booked earlier in May & were given two tables at the front overlooking the sea. The view & table position were enhanced by outstanding customer service by all staff members. The duty manager was on his game so was the meet & greeter outside with Frankie our waitress topping the whole evening off. Well done you are on it. First family get together - thanks for making it fab.
Oh yeah food was awesome too.

We have been coming to the Red Barn for over twenty years, and the food and service has never let us down.
However, unfortunately due to Covid the former bar area where lots of socialising took place with locals, surfers, skate boarders, and holiday makers has now been shut down and tables for dining put in place. This does not change the fact that food and service remains great as always.
Hopefully the management at the red barn will get the place back to its former glory, including the reinstatement of live music.

The Red Barn

Hi Bernie Thank you for your comments. Whilst we are still in these uncertain times we’ll carry on operating as we are for this year; fortunately the general feedback on full table service has been very positive. We will of course be looking as to how we can generate a bit more of the old ‘surfer bar’ ambience!

The male waiter who greeted us was lovely and up beat, then it went down hill from there. Over priced for poor quality food and terrible service. Will not be going back I expect better for £75 for three of us.
