What a lovely time my husband and I had for our wedding anniversary last Friday at Barnacles. From the moment we arrived the staff were attentive, professional and friendly. We had an excellent meal (mussels & frites; lobster and crab salad, 2 delicious sweets) plus drinks - all for under £60. Fantastic value. We will definitely be back soon :)

Food is superb, had the sticky spare ribs for a starter when they came out We thought that it was the main because of the size of the portion. Steak cooked beautifully. Strawberry and prosecco jelly - best dessert I've ever had. Staff are lovely, the man that served us was such a lovely young gentleman. Mine and my partners... More

The food was awesome as usual unfortunately the service was a bit of let down, it was my wife's birthday which I made sure the staff knew and nothing no cake no candle. There were no bread rolls brought to the table, we had to ask a staff member serving another table for a drink.

Been a good few times, good food, nice atmosphere and good staff. Pricey, but reasonable considering the quality of the place.
