Hadn’t been in the barn for a while as I was put off by the previous owner. But the new owner has changed it around, really nice atmosphere, friendly staff and reasonable and homely food. I’ll will be going back very soon.

What a shame that this venue fails on the basics where quality of food is concerned. How can they fail to have sufficient supplies of a basic required for several dishes offered on their menu? Three members of our party ordered dishes that were supposed...More

The Chestfield Barn originated as part of the Chestfield Manor in the 14th Century, a possession of the half-brother of William the Conqueror, Odo, Bishop of Bayeaux. It is believed that the Manor dates back to as early as 1084, particularly as it is mentioned in the Doomsday Book of 1086. In the early part of the 20th Century the barn was converted in to a golf house by Abe Mitchell to service the 700 acre golf course constructed in 1924 by George Reeves. The 14th Century barn is now a pub restaurant offering a traditional and contemporary menu of freshly prepared dishes using locally sourced ingredients whenever possible.
