  • We had booked a lunch party for 20 at the Green Barn Restaurant; we were told that the size of our group would be 'no problem'. Our party arrived on time, but the service from the word go was very poo...  more »
  • Such a special place. This is our favourite place to visit. The food is always amazing, seasonal delights from the organic kitchen gardens that are so full of flavour. Catherine greets us with her friendly smile & the team are so attentive & friendly. We love the gardens & each time we visit we find a new favourite spot. We stayed in the Stable Yard accommodation recently & felt so at home & so welcomed by Joanna & James, everything was carefully considered & Lesley's insights into the gardens & history of the house & gardens was fascinating. We can't wait to return.
  • We had our wedding in Burtown House last July , it was like a dream! Food , venue , staff was amazing! This review is overdue but honestly couldn't ask more for a better venue to have the wedding! Once again thank you James and Joanna for making our dream come true!!! 🙏🙏🙏🙏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏☘️🇹🇷☘️🇹🇷☘️🇹🇷
  • Okay food. Not value FOR money and services not GOOD. Deserts dry cup of herbal tea was cold. But tasted GOOD. Took long time to serve the food. paid to visit the garden and its a joke. Plant are dead or dying. Walk is threatened by a huge dog. Not much of a walk and its not looked after. Had visitors from abroad and embarrassed abour whole thing.
  • Nice place to visit for a couple of hours.. The sculpture walk is worth viewing.
  • A good offering but tending towards over-expensive. €17 for a (starter size?) fish pie. The admission to the gardens is also steep considering the area. Worth visiting to make up your own mind. 3 or 4 star review? I'll be generous and give 4 stars for effort.
