I’ve written about the Barn before and how much I like it.  This time we decided to go for breakfast before a long walk along the Cleveland Way. We were not disappointed!  I had Hartlepool smoked haddock with poached eggs, hollaindaise sauce and fried sliced potatoes. The haddock was really superb and the hollandaise sauce really well made.

Mr Frivolitea had omelette Arnold Bennett with Hartlepool smoked haddock. Really  light and really tasty.

I can’t stay away from great food so we also headed back the next day for Sunday lunch before heading home. The Barn provides such high quality and exciting food for such great value.   Just £20.95 for three courses.

This time we both had the Thai crab and prawn cake, prank hen’s egg and tempura green beans for starter (absolutely delicious) 

For main course Mr Frivolitea had the roast beef and I had pan fried wild sea trout with king prawns and garlic and herb butter

As on previous visits a highlight is the side dishes that come with the main course.  This time we had roast potatoes, celeriac gratin, sweetcorn with Swiss rainbow chard, leeks and streaky bacon and a roasted squash, tomatoes and peppers with feta.  I have not visited anywhere else that puts as much love and attention into the side dishes as to the main event.  It’s one reason why we keep going back.
