The building from the outside looks a little dilapidated and not very tidy, you can not use front door so you go round the back, and it is not very clearly signed for the entrance. The first room is a bit like a waiting room with at the time an open fire going. The first person welcoming was not that... More

Haven't been to this restaurant for a few years as there is so much choice locally. Looking for somewhere different to go, we booked for a Friday night. We were very warmly welcomed and sat in front of a wood burning stove. It's a big menu so theeews lots to choose from. Quality of the food was great and the... More

Thank you so much for reviewing your meal at the Barn. When I saw you on Friday, I was really surprised when you said how long it was since you last ate with us. It didn't feel that long ago. Glad that you had such a positive experience and I know you enjoyed the Banoffie pie. Hope to see you... More

Best steak I have had in a long long time. Lovely olde worlde character to restaurant. Uneven floors and low ceiling might not be to all tastes.

Thank you for taking the time to review your experience at the Barn and I am really pleased that you enjoyed your steak. I completely agree that the building may not be to all tastes but I suppose in all honesty, neither are we!! More

We are regular users of this fabulous establishment for family meals etc. Without exception the food has always been fantastic, beautifully prepared, cooked and presented. There's also plenty of it, making "the Barn" excellent value for money. The owners are the most kind and thoughtful people who go above and beyond the call of duty to make every experience special.... More

We've eaten here four times over the last few years, and always had really good food. The last time we arrived and the main restaurant was closed as it was so quiet. We were seated in the bar area by the roaring fire, felt like we were in someone's own home. Three of us loved this and one of us... More

Thank you for reviewing the Barn. You are quite correct that if we are quiet and particularly during the winter when it is cold, we tend to just open the bar area because being a barn it is difficult to warm everywhere sufficiently. If you came again, and wanted to sit in the dining room you would be more than... More

My Wife and I stopped here on a whim. The roast was delicious, service excellent - the best pub experience for us so far.

Absolutely amazing. Busy busy busy and the reason for that was there food was fantastic. Lot's and lot's of staff so very attentive and nothing to much trouble.

Food was average and the décor and layout was a little cold, not a place I would visit again. A real lack of warmth

The Barn is a restaurant that never lets you down. The quality of the food, the friendliness of the staff and the overall atmosphere is fantastic. The one thing that I've noticed over the years of going to The Barn is the consistency. They never seem to have a bad day, which can't be said for most other restaurants. The... More

Visited for the first time in a handful of months, for a family Sunday roast. I'll simply say this ; if you are in the Cranleigh area, and you are looking for a friendly, homely, not poncy, sunday meal , look no further than the Alfold barn.
