Reviewer HelMacD
The Old Barn is unique and lovely. A complete mix of people go there and last year a huge unused walled garden was opened up. Anyone can use it, but People with young children are encouraged to go in there after a certain time in the evening, leaving the rest of the garden for adults - keeps everyone happy. It's adults only in the bar as well, but the room next door is for everyone. The people who run it are trying very hard to accommodate the wishes of all their customers but in a very laid back style. The atmosphere there is always relaxed.

What a fantastic pub! Fabulous building with so much character and a great atmosphere. Wonderful large garden with fairy lights, comfy sofas, bbq, loads of seating areas. Great choice of beers and ciders. Wish they did food! Will definitely recommend to everyone and we will be returning soon!

I visited The Old Barn at Wraxall yesterday evening. I was blown away. It was so pretty. Plants, flowers, fairy lights. Large covered outside seating areas - slight moroccan feel with large sofas, candles, tealights. There was a great atmosphere there. Inside was a quiz night in full swing. A huge range of ages , elderly gents and young people. A great range of real ales and ciders. They have a huge gas barbecue so you can take your own food to cook - we popped to the local tesco to buy some rolls, sausages etc - we were able to cook them on a clean BBQ, which was covered so had it been raining you'd be good and dry. Our party was able to sit, chill, chat and drink - a lovely evening and I will definitely be returning.

Some of these reviews are a bit harsh but we are all entitled to our opinion. One thing I would like to say is that since the bad reviews the pub has been taken over by 2 girls who quite honestly have turned it around. It is packed most weekends and they have a nice outside area with heaters, gazebo's, Bar-B-Q's and soft furniture. The guy that has been there once please just try again as I am sure you will be shocked of what they have done. Great ales and ciders. Great atmosphere.
Bad points. Not enough live music.
Could do with more food. Pies, pasties etc
Too many dogs and kids.
Having said all that they are new and everything cost money to set up, but what they have done is encouraging.
You will not find a pub like this !

Yup, I love it too. Let the really sad people go back to plastic pubs with no character. They get what they deserve (and that really isn't a great deal). Like ale , like cider, like intelligent conversation? You could well find it here. Staff are attentive and work like trojans, but Weaterspoons it's not, thank God!

This is a great PUB. Not a disco or night club or gastro pub or an engineered Olde Worlde pub. There should be more places like this.

I was recommended this place by friends and popped in on the off chance....

We were warmly and genuinely welcomed and shall be returning at every opportunity.

The old Barn is a really nice enjoyable pub to be at, you get no annoying young chav kids, no underage people at all, and friendly light hearted banter between pub landlord and manager of The Old Barn.
There IS (I repeat...) IS music but its not to loud and not to quiet you want to be able to hear what people are saying to you, as I like most people, go down to the pub for a social thing, so saying that The Old Barn is DULL?! is a complete travasty sir.
I suggest you go down to a local hangout of underage kiddies drinking cider and blaring sh*t music and hang out there if you want sme music entertainment or food, make it at home you lazy git.
The Barn is a rural pub offering a friendly atmosphere where you can just sit back and relax and enjoy your pint of traditional ale or Cider and have a nice evening with friends.

The Old Barn is indeed a shockingly dull pub, with the atmosphere of the inside of an old teapot. The venue is literally filthy, but not even this livens the greying, weirdly smug ambience the pub has. I certainly shall not be returning.
