A friend recommended The Tickled Trout as we like Italian food. It certainly lived up to expectations. The menu is quite extensive and features a number of Italian dishes including a variety of pizzas. It is a very comfortable setting. My husband is wheelchair bound and found it very easy to access with plenty of space between the tables. The... More

We were a party of 11 and five of our party were unexpectedly delayed due to bad weather. The staff couldn't have been more understanding and even though we should have placed our order by 3 they totally understood the situation and were prepared to wait and take our order when the rest of our party arrived. We all had... More

Lovely Food and Service. Very good decor. Something a bit different. All courses were served on good quality crockery. The lavatories are excellent (Not as a consequence of the food)

We visited The Tickled Trout at Barlow in February 2017. The restaurant is lovely inside, and our meals were lovely, although I could have done with a more substantial meal for my main course. The only thing that let this restaurant down was the slow service at the end of the meal when we were waiting to pay. Altogether, a... More
