The Barn Owl is located in the beautiful Currys Post area and makes the most of the wonderful scenery. There is also an outdoor play area for kids to enjoy and occasionally the horses come up for a visit. The menu itself was a bit limited in its options though and I also felt that they were understaffed at the time; we actually waited for 30 minutes unattended before asking for our waiter. Don't let this distract you from visiting The Barn Owl. I love this place and will not hesitate to come again.

Great lunch-time venue. Ordered the kimcheese Reuben toasty, kimchee, melted cheese & pastrami on toasted ciabatta. Unique & tasty combo with a slight bite. Fries were fresh, crispy outside soft inside. Definitely recommend this meal and the venue which has a great vibe & gr8 service!

Stopped here on our meandering thru Curry's Post. Had a light lunch, and was happy to see the vegan and vegetarian options available. Food was good and presentation was beautiful, though I found the black bean burger patty a little dry... But the view is the cherry on the cake! Stop here, you'll be happy you did!

We left without ordering because the service was so shocking. There were only two staff members on the floor, one of which was so busy preparing the cappacinos he could not leave that station. The other gentleman on the floor was about 3 tables behind and we could see he was not going to get to taking our order for at least another 30 mins. We were shocked after driving all the way there based on raving reviews from food critic.

Yes yes, you unfortunately came while we were closed to sit down service, some days we were overrun as people sat themselves! But we understand, we’re known as a sit down restaurant. We were forced to close this holiday season as we mourned the loss of some of our team in an accident on their way to work. I hope you give us another try as things normalise for us.

My group of friends went here every single morning on our five day Midlands stay. Amazing coffee and especially the ice coffee is unbelievable. Please do have the house specialty toasty which is kimchi, pastrami and local cheeses, best toasty i ever ate. Fabulous friendly staff and amazing surroundings.

I loved it here. The menu is limited and portion sizes really small. Besides the food i would go for the vibes and most definitely the views. Forget about the city for a moment and get lost in the beauty of the mountains. Take a friend or someone you really enjoy being with. The kids will be entertained too.

I was very impressed with the service. The place was packed and we were still served very quickly and efficiently. Our coffee came within a few minutes and our food came extremely quickly too. It was delicious and very well priced. The service was exceptional all round. I have not experienced service like this in ages, the manager was doing an awesome job as well as all the other staff.

The Barn Owl is lovely! The location and views are magnificent and the restaurant itself is stylish and contemporary yet still welcoming and comfortable. Excellent coffees, great food and friendly and efficient service - what’s not to like. Definitely worth going out of your way to stop off here.

As always, such delicious food, coffee and milkshakes. Had the breakfast veggie bowl and will definitely be back for this again and again. Wonderful staff, attentive and friendly. Great play area for kids, an easy walk to the dam and a quick visit to see the horses will keep the kids entertained for ages. Everything you could possibly need for a perfect day in the midlands.

I think adding athis facility at Ground Covers shop was a brain Wave. The setting is lovely, and does give us good husbands a place to relax while wife is shopping. We unfortunately only had time for coffee, but will re visit.

An absolutely picturesque spot. Beautifully designed cafe with an amazing country view. The owner is so so friendly and welcoming. The food was delicious and the coffee is superb. Can't wait to return and maybe do one of the trails on the farm.

The atmosphere was amazing, wedding we attended there was excellently done. Venue was very beautiful, on a sunny day the views were amazing, got misty the evening, it was just as amazing. Food was done well and the staff were very friendly.

Excellent Neil Diamond tribute, tasty supper but expensive for quantity served. Costs kept down as own drinks could be brought.
