The Barn Restaurant Waitress


Enjoy informal dining in the exquisite surroundings of our award winning 16th Century timber barn. Thoughtfully renovated by skilled craftspeople, sublime contemporary styling effortlessly blends with the traditional thatched roof and oak beams.

Nestled in the beautiful Essex countryside, yet close to Colchester, The Barn provides a delightful setting for family celebrations, unique wedding venue, and a subtly impressive space for business meetings.
