We visited on Christmas Day 2017, having booked back in August! La Barnes does not disappoint. We had four courses, wine, ambience, close up magic and wonderful staff. Save your pennies this year and treat yourself.

I was sceptical over the other reviews I read - I need not have been. It's a pleasure to find a top quality establishment such as this. The food really is very good indeed. Two of us dined and with a half bottle of white...More

Have visited this restaurant on 2 previous occasions and, as before, our visit earlier this month did not disappoint. Great French cuisine, service and atmosphere. Would recommend this restaurant without hesitation.

La Barbe is our favourite restaurant because you get what you pay for; excellent service and top notch food every time. This visit was a double birthday celebration (unbeknownst to the restaurant) and we really had a wonderful time.

Like any good retaurant there are vegetarian options but not an extensive choice. I suggest you look at their website where full menus are displayed. Chris

I think so but I'm sure they would improvise for you and discuss options at the table. But maybe ring and check when you book . I'm sure it would delicious if they gave you the napkin to eat ! Enjoy your trip

La Barbe is a truly French Restaurant, established 35 years ago and located opposite the wonderful Priory Park in Reigate, Surrey. La Barbe is a place that is welcoming, friendly and strongly connected to the landscape. We serve fine, freshly cooked French cuisine with a modern twist. The atmosphere is informally elegant and French through and through, from the genuinely friendly staff to the decor and, most importantly, the delicious food. Our chefs elaborate a new menu every season, creating an exciting selection of French dishes with a modern twist presented with the flair you would expect in Reigate’s own corner of France. The emphasis is on local ingredients, freshness, flavour and fabulous presentation. Our restaurant wine list offers carefully selected wines some of which organic from most of the different French wine regions but also some excellent new world wines.
