Welcoming old and new customers /guests to the Barrel Inn has never been far from our minds since having to close our doors back in March.

We are so pleased to have opened our doors again on Saturday 4th July, however, due to necessary Covid-19 restrictions please note that until futher notice our menus will be reduced and produced daily.

Food will be served from:
Monday to Friday -12 noon till 2.00pm and 6.00pm till 8.00pm.
Saturday - 12 noon till 2.00pm and 5.00pm till 8.00pm.

Other things will also be a little different in that we need to ensure that you can visit in complete confidence.
