Opinions of The Bookbarn Café at (Bath and North East Somerset)

Alan Fowle

A great little cafe inside the Book Barn. This cafe is alongside the books - so you can grab a book and have a read while you enjoy a coffee. The staff were polite and friendly and the tables were clear and clean. When we visited it was very busy but there was still room to sit and the service was fast. We ordered drinks and some brownies.( Brownies were very good) All the 'treats' seemed to be vegan or gluten free which was nice. Although we didn't order a meal the menu looked good. The only reason I've not given 5 stars is the prices are a bit too high - while the drinks are probably close to high Street prices the food was about 25-30% above. I did a double take when I had to pay. Price levels aside - recommended.

What started off as a commercial size jar of Maxwell House and an electric kettle, this cafe, in less than a decade is now a multi award winning enterprise. Serving home made dishes from a menue changing on a daily basis, the patronage of the place has exploded exponentially. Well trained staff offer table service with a wide range of savoury dishes - with plenty of options for those with a sweeter tooth. All the fresh ingredients are sourced locally and durables bought from ethical suppliers. And for those who 'just-can't-get-away-from-it' the Wi-Fi is free - but does tend to slow down when under heavy use. The venue has become even more popular, as mini-markets set up there on frequent occasions. It does get very busy often and patience is appreciated by the staff who prepare your orders individually. But you could always grab something to read if you do have a little wait - there's over a million books close at hand.

Great to sit down with a good book and drink, lunch is good and medium priced. Good service and kid friendly.

There was a fly in my tea, it says that the food is served all day when it stopped serving over an hour before closing time, the aisles for books were not labeled correctly, one of the staff let their kids mess around lots, anouther staff member told a very disabled woman to move to the sofa so she could mop, when the disabled woman in question had crutches and could not walk quickly. All in all I was not satisfied, come here if you want to eat flies with your tea

Similar price to high street, but pleasant atmosphere. Fire wasn't lit, though, but I sit at a wooden table and select a few books to peruse. Even buy a few, all at one pound. Nice Xmas craft stall inside door run by local charity.
