I think you should phone the Barn to ask this question. We are mere visitors who were there once

No, there are no lifts of any sorts. Unless for a special occassion, most of the seating happens downstairs and I actually think the upper bit of the restaurant has to be specially booked out upon request. I hope this helps!
