BarnYard is a tin temple to hipster munchies, and it really isn’t quite enough  to make a restaurant. Certainly not one you’d travel to. The shoddiness of  the hit-and-miss production was a surprise. Stuff this simple has nowhere to  hide the imperfect craft of its manufacture…

The unctuous bubble and squeak with warm chunky apple chutney; sticky chicken wings swimming in a pool of paprika, garlic and lemon; the veritable hunk of vaguely bloody, seared short rib; the bite-sized florets of charred broccoli in vinaigrette: all excellent…

There’s enough that’s lovely to recommend the whole, but a lot that isn’t as good as one would expect…

The ‘chicken in a bun’ a whole boned leg, brined and barbecued, served in a brioche slathered with tarragon mayonnaise, the just-set eggs broken over a hotpot of meaty field mushrooms slow-cooked in smoked butter, swoony with garlic and parsley…
