The Barn is a venture by Philip Dundas, aka Pip's Dish, and Farm Direct. They've turned an old Citroen garage down an alleyway off Upper Street into a pop-up farm shop that also serves as a venue for regular supper clubs. I popped along there at the weekend, and it looks brilliant. A fully stocked farm shop, with tables for eating. It's £25 per head & BYOB for Sunday lunch - you can also go for lunch on Friday & Saturday.
"We’ve created a pop-up farm shop and kitchen until May 2012, where Robert sells his fantastic quality vegetables, fruit, fresh meat, fish and dairy and I use the produce to cook meals over the weekend.The space was completely bare so we’ve created a kitchen out of nothing but it works and we’ve been cooking for parties, lunches and dinners since late November. Why not come and find out what we’re all about. On Friday and Saturday lunchtimes we operate a policy of pay-what-you-think-it’s-worth. We do so well out of this that we run a FREE LUNCH FRIDAY policy for groups of local pensioners.
Otherwise if you want to book for dinner, we are open for our regular Friday Supperclub (3 courses £25 BYOB) and we are running a bookable Sunday Lunch for up to 30 around the Barn Table with live music.
If you want to have a party any other night of the week, let us know and we can work something out."
