The choice isn't huge here but what they serve is always very fresh and tasty. The added bonus is the fact that they have a wood burner heating up the eating area and it's always toasty warm!! A nice, interesting place to have lunch.

The garden barn is unique, their food offering is honest, simple and very tasty, not to mention great value for freshly prepared food to order. The staff are all proficient and friendly and clearly enjoy working here as it shows from entering to leaving by the greeting you receive. The coffee is great and delivers on flavour and finish, credit... More

One of my favourite places. The food is excellent, paninis with carrot sticks and pistachios on the side, and lovely cake selection. Coffee is really good with real chocolate flakes on the cappuchino. Staff are friendly and helpful. The 'Emporium' has lots of quirky objects for home and garden. Lots of room for eating outside of warm summer days.

We love the Garden Barn! It has a delightful little cafe which features nice coffees, excellent hot chocolate and lovely cakes. If you're lucky enough to be there on a day when there's some coconut and raspberry sponge cake left - you MUST try it! A rare find, but very tasty! The shop at the Barn is gorgeous, a fab... More

Good tea and cakes, friendly service and huge number of interesting variety of objects to buy. However, if you visit in the winter it is freezing inside except for the two tea rooms so dress appropriately !!

Nice place to get gifts with a healthy, nicely presented lunch or a tasty cake with a cuppa. In the summer you can sit outside. In the winter there is a roaring fire. I like the individual rooms you can choose to sit in.

I have visited many times to meet friends.The cakes are lovely ,and the soups delicious. In the winter times log burners make it cosy and warm, and in the summertime the seats in the garden make it a special place for coffee etc. The staff are very friendly and the contents always provide that difficult present !!

The place to go to browse the huge selection of gifts that you will not see anywhere else plus the great cafe for coffees, panini, toasties and homemade cake. Not to missed if you are in the area.

Thank you, staff at The Garden Barn, for a delicious lunch today, served promptly with friendly staff! I am the cyclist who left it a bit late and was in a rush to get back to Warwick - I made it thanks to your panini and the piece of tiffin cake I took away in my back pocket to eat... More
