Squaremeal Review of Barnyard ?

"I could happily have breakfast, lunch and dinner here", declares a fan of Barnyard – the funky little sibling of Michelin-starred big hitter Dabbous. Corrugated tin walls, chunky wood furniture, vintage enamel crockery and a weathervane cockerel logo create a down-home vibe that fits the food to a T. "Everything is cooked with love, and it shows" – so chow down on home-cured charcuterie, acorn-flour waffles or bubble 'n' squeak with apple chutney, black pudding and a fried egg. Full meals might involve the likes of plump grilled scallops with crushed peas and mint or the ultimate comfort snack – roast beef on toast with pickles and warm garlic buttermilk. The boozy milkshakes served in milk bottles are a must, and there's old-fashioned mead for the traditionalists. On hot days, you can also sneak in for some takeaway popcorn ice cream.

    Luxury Columnist :: Brunch at Barnyard London

    Barnyard London is one of those places that I’ve been meaning to try for a long time. It’s the more informal offering from Ollie Dabbous, the Michelin starred chef, designed to look exactly like a barnyard – well maybe an urban version of one! The no bookings policy has been relaxed, and the queues have died down somewhat. I went to check out brunch with my friend Mel, a real foodie so the stakes (or should that be steaks) were high...

    Emma Rose Tully :: Review: Barnyard | Daydreamer

    For once, I’ve actually made it to a new restaurant within the first month of it being open! Ollie Dabbous, the acclaimed restaurateur behind exclusive haunt Dabbous, has opened Barnyard, an affordable farmhouse style eatery on Charlotte Street in London’s Fitzrovia.

    To quote TimeOut “Harvester this is not”. In fact, my friend and I were laughing about the review having visited Harvester for the first time a couple of weekends ago in Nottingham. Perhaps I’ve become a food snob going to all these wonderful places, but Harvester was honestly one of the worst meals I’ve ever had. Yeah, there’s a free salad bar...

    Fatty Mountain :: Fatty Mountain: Barnyard

    Barnyard was nominated in Timeout’s The 100 best restaurants in London, and it was brought to us by Ollie Dabbous who of course is the mastermind behind the Michelin-starred restaurant, Dabbous Dabbous. Instead of serving upscale food, Barnyard serves comfort food, home cooking style.

    Dinner with Jo :: Barnyard | Fitzrovia, London | dinner with jo

    As is the way with most restaurants these days, Barnyard is all about sharing. With sharing comes lots of small dishes, meaning the likelihood of ordering a bad one is increased.

    I went with four friends and between us we had the following, split into good and not so good...

    The Frying Pan Diaries :: The Frying Pan Diaries: Barnyard, Charlotte Street - Fitzrovia

    So welcome to Barnyard, a venture from Ollie Dabbous (of the highly praised Dabbous, which also happens to be just down the road). When this opened it had a no reservations policy but Im glad to see this has changed when I booked 5 of us in for dinner last night. I was also really glad because the place is tiny! They have managed to make good use of the space with the majority of seating up at the back with larger tables to accommodate 6 of us and then smaller high tables for 2 down at the front as well as being able to sit along the bar...

    COVERS & CAPERS :: Barnyard, Charlotte Street | COVERS & CAPERS

    Barnyard’s picket-fenced exterior couldn’t look more different from its parent restaurant up the road. From the outside, Dabbous is imposing. Its 10ft metal door and frosted windows are impervious, both physically and metaphorically – you won’t find many restaurants with a longer waiting list for tables. But at Ollie Dabbous’ latest venture in the middle of Charlotte Street, you wont need a tactical unit sporting explosives to breach the place in search of a meal. You simply walk up the steps and sit on the veranda or at the bar and wait for a table with the other cool kids whose collective farming experience couldn’t...

Ollie Dabbous

Unconventional Ollie Dabbous looks more rock star than chef, but he has worked in some of the world’s hottest restaurants. He earned his stripes under Raymond Blanc (now his backer) at Le Manoir aux Quat’ Saisons, was head chef at Texture, and did ‘stages’ at The Fat Duck, Noma and Mugaritz. These days, he runs Michelin-starred Dabbous (opened in 2012 but still one of the capital’s toughest reservations) and its casual 2014 follow-up Barnyard.
