This, the newest project from Oskar Kinberg and Ollie Dabbous will be headed up by General Manager Charlie Bolton (Dabbous, Burger and Lobster Mayfair) and Chef Joseph Woodland (The Square, Launceston Place)when it opens later this month.
The menu promises to be wholesome and reasonably priced featuring such dishes as Homemade Sausage rolls with piccalilli, Roast beef on toast with warm horseradish buttermilk and Apple and cloudberry crumble with clotted cream, and Bananas and custard.
The drinks list will also form a key part of the Barnyard stable with tipples including Hedgerow Shandy (sloe gin, cider, pink grapefruit and tonic), homemade lemonade and milkshakes with popcorn and lavender flavours, all of which come either virgin or alcoholic.
Interiors will have a distressed farm inspired feel – as the name might suggest – with lots of reclaimed timber and corrugated tin. And as for the soundtrack – indie folk, country and blues of course. A no-reservations policy will apply and there will also be no service charge.
Said Kinberg: “We wanted to do something fun and upbeat, and are delighted to assist Charlie and Joseph, who are both extremely talented and hard-working. It’s not another burger or chicken joint. Just home-cooking, done well and without all the washing-up”.
