Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We all had enjoyable meals. Although not busy, our meals took awhile to arrive, but when they did they were well worth waiting for. The meals were well presented and hot. The atmosphere and service was very good.

We both had a lovely meal and the atmosphere was very pleasant. We were shown to our table but later had to get our own menus then go to the bar to place our order. Other diners didn't have this problem. We didn't have the...$10 burger night, but we will be back again to do so.More

I recently caught up with with some friends for coffee at The Barn in Waimate. The service was so good and the food options were great both savory and sweet with GF options as well. Great atmosphere compared with the other establishments in this area....Looking forward to to having a meal there soon as they looked delectable. Very reasonable prices. What more can you ask for. 👍😀More

The two young waitresses looked to be the only staff on this Saturday afternoon. They got quite confused about any out of the ordinary coffee orders & weren't particularly friendly!! The water from the urn on the bar tasted VERY odd, maybe time to change...the lemons??More

We enjoyed the ribs and nachos, which were promptly served to us while we watched the rugby with the locals. Staff were really nice and situated a dining table so we could eat and see the tv.

The Barn would not serve us a meal after 2 pm only cabinet food, which was disappointing. We were there spot on 2pm and the establishment was 60%? full. Not sure if this happens every day, but it was a big let down!
