Cheesecake of the Day
please ask your waiter; served with Devonshire ice cream or clotted cream
from our butchers farm in Shirwell
Fantastic service, amazing food with a view of the sea
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.
Good selection of options on the menu, the food was lovely with friendly and efficient service.
Good service, we had a good view from our table but wouldn’t want to be at the back.
Excellent menu. Everything came out quickly and really tasty.service was good. Drinks a bit pricey but we appreciated getting a table at short notice. Will visit again very soon.
Thank you Dawn.
Excellent service and food along with a good atmosphere. Ideally placed across from the beach. Staff very helpful and easy to hook through open table.
Thank you Fiona!
Great food a step up from before covid. Worth paying the extra for quality.
Just love this place. Perfect location and great food to boot. Lovely atmosphere for our little ones too. Just book in advance to avoid disappointment!!!
Amazing food, great service and lively atmosphere. Would definitely recommend
Thank you Olivia!
Had a lovely visit to the Red Barn last night! Food was delicious and service outstanding!
Thank you Wendy!
Food was lovely, staff was great and overall a wonderful experience. Would recommend.
Thank you Krystella!
Fine for what we wanted. Friendly staff, good food for the price. Would happily eat here again when we are next in the area.
Fantastic meal service was great all round a pleasant experience.
Friendly and welcoming beautiful food and very accommodating for young children. The cheesecake was amazing
Thank you for your kind comments.
The meal was lovely. Our waitress was so accommodating and friendly. Will be going back when we next visit Devon.
Thank you Amy!
Service was excellent (thank you Sharon). Menu was limited, over-priced and food was fairly bland. You pay a hefty premium for the view...
Thank you for your feedback Paul.
Fantastic food as always. Prices have gone up but I feel that this is to be expected because of extra precautions being put in place due to covid. The staff are brilliant and we didn't feel rushed.
Thank you Jane!
Good food as usual. Menu is a bit more up market than it used to be. We enjoyed it and food was delicious.
I like the booking system as you can guarantee a table. There is an option for drop ins.
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.
Thank you for your feedback Mark.
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.
Thank you Paul, glad to hear that you had a great time at The Red Barn.
Love the way the Red Barn has reviewed how they run the restaurant-full table service and a more refined menu.
The food was superb and the table service was great.
Will definitely be making return visits - just need to book a table to ensure not disappointed.
Thank you Emma - it's great to hear that you appreciate the new style Red Barn!
Great to be back at the Red Barn. Food excellent as always.
Thank you - glad to have you back with us!
Lovely friendly staff, good value meal. We have been coming here for years.
Always book for the red barn when I am down in Devon. Best food and value for money. Thanks Pat excellent service
Thank you Colin.
The staff were very friendly and welcoming and the quality of the food was very good. We would definitely eat here again.
We have eaten here many times previously and the food has always been gorgeous. This time, booking was easy and the inside was quieter which was lovely for family conversation
Thank you, we're glad that you enjoyed your visit.
All of our meals were well priced, tasty and good value. Service was prompt and friendly and although menu was reduced there was still plenty of choice with the specials board.
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.
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.
I apologise that you didn’t enjoy your visit to The Red Barn; clearly we’re not the place for you!
Great as always
Great pub. Expensive burger & curry.
Lamb dish was lovely
Very well organised with all staff following covid protocols. Staff very friendly & accommodating. Food has definitely improved since our last visit in 2019, although prices have increased.
Thank you, glad you enjoyed the new menu.
Excellent lunch but it took a long time to arrive despite not being particularly busy.
Fantastic service. Delicious food. Will definitely return.
Thank you Marianne.
Always great food and service
Portion sizes weren't terrific for the price but the quality was good. The beer excellent. The service great and the overall vibe perfect. Have booked again!
Thank you Richard!
Really enjoyed e service and meal. Polite staff and felt very Covid safe.
Great experience as always,
Food was very delicious, staff very nice and friendly. Location is brilliant,we sat outside and did not regret it at all. I ordered slow cooked lamb which melted in my mouth.
Thank you Agnes!
Friendly service, being able to book was great
It was great food and the staff were very helpful and friendly
Thank you Simon.
