Cuisine: A La Carte, British, Steakhouse
Price Point: Mains from £15-£25
Ranked: #8 of 27 restaurants in Bristol

For quality beef in a charming setting you won’t beat this cosy spot, which nestles in the grounds of a country manor house.

Stroll through a fairytale walled garden until you reach the rustic dining room. With its rough stone walls and crooked beams, it is the perfect place to enjoy British food at its very best.

The meat is carefully sourced from small local farms and you can taste the quality in every bite. Choose from succulent steaks with your choice of sauce and juicy burgers, or keep things light and tasty with a hearty salad. Little carnivores are well catered for too, with their very own mini options.

And of course, it just wouldn’t be a proper British meal without a decadent dessert. End your experience on a sweet note.

Located in Tockington, a pretty village just outside Bristol.

We went to the Steak Barn and had a lovely evening. The atmosphere is fabulous, with twinkly lighting and log burning fires. The food was really tasty and our waitress was lovely! Perfect evening all round

A beautifully decorated barn with 2 large wood burners making it feel really snug. Food and service was excellent.

We both had the mixed grill and 2 side dishes each. This was quite a large dish, so we were not able to finish the salad and the chips. The food was excellent, well prepared and as required.
The ambience was lovely with the two wood burners. Do take a pullover with you on a cold day, you need to go outside for the toilets. The staff was lovely and took great care of us.

Lovely cosy restaurant in the barn with the fire on. Excellent service from a friendly waiter. We both had 3 courses, of which the mains were steak, which were perfect.

First time I’d tried first table and also first time at The Steak Barn. Brilliant evening and food. Service excellent. The evening was made very special by having a beautiful little robin flying in the barn. Very memorable evening.

Lovely surroundings, that served great steak . The service was good , my only disappointment was we were unable to have more than one cocktail as the girls had to go over to the main building to get them and they were too busy there to provide them to the customers in the barn ! . I would definitely return again.

Disappointed! After seeing rating and previous reviews took parents & wife. Arrived 18-20 for 18-30 table. Gate locked and phone line unanswered. Once in we were told only 3 sirloin steaks available and NO pies at all. 2 of the 4 starters not available + the nicest dessert out of 4. Decided to order Cote de Beouf to share.....guess what....not available. Bearing in mind it's only open 2 days a week and we were the 1st table of the night...not have steak in a steak restaurant is very poor. The positives were the service, waitress was very apologetic and what we did eat was good. However, we could have eaten anywhere local wih the choices on offer. Was also very dark by end of meal due to poor lighting in barn. Discount was needed as you'd feel robbed paying full price for the limited menu. Whoever runs/owns this place really needs to address these issues to get any repeat business. Think twice about booking!!! SORRY but only being honest....

Didn’t start off too good because on arrival
Gate appeared to be locked and there were 2 other parties waiting in the car park also thinking gate was locked. When we did get in we were given a lovely warm welcome. Only 1 server so had a wait for drinks and order food. Delicious bread and butter free. Steak meal was absolutely delicious and possibly the best steak we’d had before. Dessert was chocolate bomb and was delightful. We had 50% off food on first table and had a very reasonable priced meal however paying full price would of been expensive as we had extra mushrooms and salad. Without this the meal
Would of been small. The barn is lovely low
Music playing was a good touch.
Would
Definitely recommend and would
Return.

Lovely barn, great steak and chips which was beautifully presented. If you like to escape the city buzz and taste some great food in a rustic style barn , then this is the place to go. Highly recommend it.

Lovely experience, the barn is cosy and warm with 2 log burners. Food was delicious, although drinks could have been offered more frequently. Small menu, but everything was perfectly delivered.
