What an amazing find! Beautiful food, high quality, well cooked / presented. Lovely coffee / hot chocolate Really lovely staff / service. Shop has fantastic not found on the high street food and snack / treat items. Perfect. Wish I lived closer. Excellent parking.

Lovely lunch
Another great place to have lunch and do a bit of gift buying. The menu is good but not overwhelming with some lovely lunch options. All reasonably priced and locally sourced produce. The adjacent shop has good selection of gifts, produce and children's toys. All ethically sourced. Mersea Barns is well worth a visit
Highly recommend
Mersea Barn is a very light and spacious place to eat. Very clean and welcoming with shop that sells unique items to keep or give as presents. The food is always freshly cooked and plenty of it with the most friendly staff. We eat there many times while on holiday.
