What a find this was. We are staying at the camping and caravanning club site nearby and The Barn is a short walk away. As it is Easter Sunday we thought it would be nice to book Sunday Lunch. Boy am I glad we did. This place really knows how to provide high quality food. Sunday Lunch was £20.95 for 3 courses. An absolute bargain in my opinion. 
 For starter I had the seafood trio: cured salmon and crab cocktail, chilli and kaffir lime leaf fish fingers, Thai prawn and rice cake. This is my kind of food. I love seafood anyway but this was creative and bursting with flavour. The Thai prawn and rice cake was a particular favourite. 

Mr Frivolitea had Chicken, pork, wild mushroom and leek terrine with poached pear and rosemary focaccia toasts. Again another super tasty dish. Even the butter was delicious!

For main course we all had Roast lamb. Well, it’s Easter Sunday so you’ve got to don’t you! It was rolled shoulder that had been clearly cooked long and slow and it just melted in the mouth. What I particularly liked about the main course was the love and attention that went in to the vegetables. This was no ordinary roast dinner. We had roast potatoes, beetroot and carrots, pea, broad bean, asparagus and leek gratin and celeriac and apple purée. All cooked exquisitely and packed with flavour.

For pudding I had orange tart and mango sorbet, just the right quantity and refreshing after a big roast.
Mr Frivolitea had sticky toffee pudding, treacle toffee sauce and vanilla bean ice cream.
 The Barn is open for lunches and also has a number of themed evenings throughout the year. We will certainly be back, with that level of quality, why wouldn’t we!
