Welcome to The Barn
Ben Franco (aka The Grumpy Chef) welcomes you with open arms and a complimentary moan to his “Little Place” in Almondbury.
The Barn were the first ever winners of Come Dine With Me The Professionals on Channel 4, where Ben’s passion for being cheeky and generous was revealed.
We are open Friday and Saturday Nights offering an early doors menu followed by our fabulous main menu later in the evening. Themed nights are dotted around the calendar and are always shouted out on social media.
The Barn is known as a fabulous place for private parties and we also offer a bespoke ‘Party Back at Yours’ service, (Outside catering on a small and personal level).
Who is The Grumpy Chef?
Ben’s charms have been acquired from such fab places as Cliveden House Hotel Berkshire, The Regent Hotel Sydney, Pool Court and Rascasse Leeds to eventually opening his own doors at NoSH Almondbury 1998. Gringo’s, Cibo, Café Espressoh and The Little Buddha Bar all followed until he decided to put on his apron and open The Barn in October 2016.
