Great options for gluten free pub food. They have experience with celiac and I feel very confident eating there. They even have a dedicated fryer.

I spoke with the bar tender who told me the owner has a child with Celiac and has a dedicated gluten free fryer and many other options. I ordered the GF fish and chips and my husband ordered the regular fish and chips both were excellent. You could tell the GF order and the waiter new exactly which was which.

Ok.. there are mixed review on here so I'm going to set it straight. This place is a pub/bar. Done. They have a HUGE gluten free menu and dedicated fryer. I got the potato skins and they were very plain. I got the chicken tenders... they were AMAZING. My hubby got the chili and said it was hot/zippy. But he enjoyed it. If you want delicious gluten free chicken tenders, come here! I posted a picture as well.

I went here based on so many 5 star reviews on this app but everyone of those people must have been drunk because this was one of the grossest places I've ever sat in and most of the food was inedible. BF said appetizer plate was decent but looked like frozen food out of a bag just re-fried. He got the roast beef dinner which was deli slices of roast beef re cooked on a griddle served in a nasty thick gravy over white bread - the roast beef was so rotten I could barely stand the smell and as soon as he put it in his mouth he spit it out. He is one of those guys who tries anything and usually eats it and couldn't even bare to keep this in his mouth, it was vile. I got the GF chicken finger basket because I figured anything fried was safer. The chicken looked and tasted like it was covered in beach sand, they were over cooked, and the sweet and sour sauce was so think and fake red it looked like some sort of slime. The fries were thick cut steak fries and were fine. Our waitress looked like a mom who had 5 jobs and hadn't slept in 10 years, she was nice enough but was running around frantically just dropping drinks and food on everyone's tables, and it wasn't even busy....on a Friday night at 630 which should have been our first clue. She was dressed in an old sweatshirt, jeans and sneakers, one of the cooks came out of the kitchen and looked like they hired him straight from prison, which would explain the food. The service was also so slow, we were there for 2+ hours from the time we walked in to walked out. There was one bathroom that I would have never used, I would have peed outside in the -20 degree weather first. This place is beyond a dive, I don't know how it has so many good reviews, easily the worst meal we've ever had. They did have a decent sized GF menu, stated a dedicated fryer and are aware of cross contamination but I am extremely doubtful of that and it doesn't matter if the food is that nasty.

Stay Away! The barn is just what it is a Barn. Filthy, rude, unisex dirty bathroom, smells old stale cigs. Food is burnt and makes you have to run for the restroom. You are better to go the the ale house down the street.

Gluten free buffalo tenders fried in separate fryer great. Steak tips with baked potato and veggies excellent. GF brownie sundae warm and yummy. No stomach reactions to food so this place stays on my GF go-to restaurant list. Very reasonable prices especially for GF. Low key local bar atmosphere.

one of the biggest selections of gf food. They have gf beer, fish and chips, buns, etc. They keep a separate fryer going for all of the gf food so you can enjoy fries without worry.

this was the best gf fish and chips I've had.
