Visited on a Friday afternoon and they appear to serve food all day. Good choice of beer, including one from local brewery. Food was standard Pub Grub but at £5 for Fish, Chips and Peas, whats not to like? They also have number of Special nights - Steak, Curry etc which again look excellent. If I lived nearer, I would...

What a find, we were staying locally and decided to give The Old Barn a try. Obviously a lot of work has been done on the pub and it looks as though this is on going but this is only cosmetic. The staff are friendly and helpful and the food just fantastic. I started with a delicious pate followed by... More

First visit to this pub after the renovations and first impressions are not good. Quite why the new owners have decided to strip the soul out of this place is beyond me. Part of the appeal with a Country Pub is that they stay the same. The top room bar has been stripped out and a new one positioned at... More

To be honest your review is fankly ridiculous. This local pub has been DYING for years and clearly not supported by you as we have been there 6 months, with multiple people attempting to keep it going. Change for change sake is pointless but doing the same as the previous failures leads to only one result, A NEW HOUSING DEVELOPMENT.... More

We visited the Old Barn Inn at the end of a cycle ride around the Glooston area as we train for a 500 mile charity ride across France and what a find it was. The food was lovely and excellent value for money. All main courses at lunch are a fiver and the food was tasty and plentiful. Staff were... More

The pub is undergoing renovation work and is somewhat disorganised as a result, however this has not detracted from serving high quality food. Midweek specials means a three course meal for only a tenner, and offering a great choice too. Looking forward to the renovation being completed, and we will definitely back. Top quality food and excellent service.

I went to the pub for lunch and to watch a rugby match. Food was decent and beer was cold. The rugby matches were well watched by a group of locals. Nice place to visit

The Old Barn at Glooston, nestling in the rolling countryside of the Welland Valley near Market Harborough is quite hard to find but well worth the effort. The cosy restaurant serves very good quality steaks sourced to a local butcher with generous sized ribeye, rump and sirloin. If you fancy something more exotic the Asian chef prepares authentic curries. The... More

We visited for a quiet couple of drinks, were shocked at the transformation as soon as we walked in, all the character has been removed, it was a traditional, cosy country pub full of character but alas no more. Also, the bar has been moved which hindered ordering a drink from the bar greatly. It will be interesting to see... More

Dear Customer, Sorry about this, we have a child friendly, dog friendly, cycle and walker friendly approach in the bar and sometimes that causes these issues, it's a small village and the locals can sometimes forget it's not a private pub just for them but they are also very loyal customers. Thanks for your comments on the beer and wine,... More
