Based on a Sunday morning visit with two biking friends grabbing a coffee I could not fail to be impressed by the `Barn' section of The Red Barn, and thought of a future cosy evening meal with my partner. Booked using their on-line reservation system, answering the question as to my preference of eating area being the `Barn', naturally. Upon arrival for our 8pm booking it became clear that this (Sunday morning) quiet corner of Surrey was being used for a wedding reception and the guest's at estimate numbered a couple of hundred. The initial `fight' to get to the bar and then the realization that the `Barn' was now a Disco, gave twangs of regret and I seriously considered walking out and re-booking at a time more appropriate for us. Word to the wise; if booking on an automated or electronic reservation service, be prepared that the final outcome may not meet expectation. The staff were friendly but clearly stretched. We were seated in the `Pantry' (which my partner felt akin to someone's kitchen!) and by the door to the toilets in a dimly lit (almost dark), cold (yes, cold) area that looked a poor substitute for the main attraction. Ok. The service was OK, our waitress being constantly interrupted by other diners while trying to take our order, I chose a starter Caesar Salad and a main of Beef and Ale Pie, my friend having the Sirloin. Top marks for the steak, cooked to perfection, and the hand cut chips. Middle marks for the Pie, tasty but full of gravy. Bottom marks for the portion sizes, my veg = 1 sprig of Cauli, 1 of Brocoli and half a carrot cut lengthwise, whether that constitutes even one of my five a day I'm not certain. The mash was nice and creamy, just not much of it. No marks for the worst Salad I have ever had, most unattractive, most unappealing, the Chicken was cold and clearly processed, the Croutons had a rubber effect and tasted, well, odd really and the anchovy was dry and tasteless. Oh and the little pot of gravy for the steak was supposed to be a pepper corn sauce, I think not folks, she left that anyway .... We decided to skip the dessert for a visit to a rival on the way home and sat in the Ashdown Forest watching the stars and drinking our Coffee. A pleasant way to end a disappointing evening for us both. The `bill' came to just over 40 which is as expected. Would we go again? Yes I would give this dog a second bite but only if the Barn is open. Next time I will telephone and make sure we are not part of someone else's big day. My partner, probably not. Looks like then, I may be dining alone ...

I havent visited this place in years and what a dissapointment it has become. Whoever refurbished this pub should be fired. The staff were to be quite frank unpleasant and unhelpful. The food was very expensive and ridiculously small portions. I feel this is one to avoid.

This is a lovely, open, place to be. But, yes, it's London in a box, but without any of the London buzz. That may, or may not, be to your taste. Personally, working in London and having escaped 20 years of life there, I can't bring myself to like it.

Several food eating experiences have been terrible, with staff being about as engaging as a carrot having a philosophical debate with Penelope Keith. In fact, the serving staff seemed to be more interested (as is the way, nowadays!!) with txtng m8s abt gng out tnt 2 gt psd in EG innit. I have had cold, unappreciated contact with breakfast, where I felt like a leper, and several dinners and drinking experiences that were less than fantastic.

That said, one of the members of staff - just one mind you - did smile and say something. I think it was "oh, you want to pay your bill? Oh. DIdn't they come to the table?"

What a shame.

Been in the Red Barn a couple of times now as it has a nice feel to it but the food is very hit and miss, we order Fish and chips and steak which was very good but the pie of the day was very average it tasted like a cheap mass produced job.
