A while ago I mentioned that Bernard and Rachael from Salix had moved from Willow Creek and set up Barn & Co at Merinda Park (Mrs Nicks) on Myers Road.  Well the good news is that it’s great – seriously.

Barn & Co.

It’s not as formal as Salix – it is in a fairly rustic barn after all – but the food and the concept work really well.  I’ve tried a couple of glasses of wine late on a Friday afternoon, a snack of terrine and Pinot mid-afternoon, a multi-course dinner in the evening and a couple of decent lunches.  The menu has a range of small dishes – terrine, pate, scallops and pork cheek – bigger things like pizzas – and then a number of excellent mains.

It does sell the Mrs Nicks range of wines but you’re not limited to that.  The wine list is pretty good.  Barn & Co is open every lunchtime except Tuesdays and Wednesdays and for dinner on Friday and Saturday.  And yes – Rachael is doing weddings, and the grounds of Merinda Park are very attractive.  So Barn & Co is definitely worth a visit – most excellent.
