Bucks Writs - Spring 2017 - 23

read a few years ago that new management had taken over
and had grand plans for Barley Sheaf's restoration. And
then one day not too long ago, the Hungry Lawyer got his
ticket to legitimately enter the grounds. Always in search
of a dining bargain, yours truly came across a Groupon for
the restaurant at Barley Sheaf. Now I must say to all you
other bargain hunting readers, "Too Bad!", because it is
impossible to imagine that this fine BYOB will ever again
need to offer a Groupon incentive to attract devotees
of fine dining.

The approach ends
at a large, pavered
courtyard in the
center of which is a
dramatic fountain.
Arrive early to walk
the grounds before
you eat. Barley Sheaf
is definitely one of
the most beautiful
and romantic venues
in Bucks County.

It is a good thing for us that I generally buy two Groupons
for a restaurant. If the restaurant is great, the advantage
is obvious. And if it's bad, I'm willing to give it another
chance. Because of the latter, we returned to Barley
Sheaf after a very mediocre first meal. The second meal
was glorious and on multiple visits since we and our
guests have never

Located in an enclosed
porch-like area with an
open kitchen is their
beautiful and intimate dining room. There is a smaller room
to the left as you enter the dining area. We avoid this room
as it is a bit dark and confining but the privacy it provides
can be just right for certain moments, or certain diners.
Our favorite tables are those across from the open kitchen
that allow us to enjoy the magnificent views through the
picture windows as well as watch the kitchen staff prepare
the meals. An expansion is planned but currently there is
no "bad" table and from what we understand that won't
change. When warm enough, al fresco dining is available.

Our most recent visit was a romantic impromptu, just
because we were fortunate to get a last minute reservation.
Do not count on this happening for you, especially on
a weekend. The table was beautifully set. Our server,
Rachelle, promptly greeted us and exuded just the right
combination of warmth and professionalism; she was quick
with the wine glasses and showed us she knew what she
