Sunday Lunch Menu
Sunday lunch is the perfect time to relax and socialise, enjoying time with friends and family. That’s the theory. The reality of juggling with a large joint of meat, topping and tailing the beans and de-lumping the gravy can be anything but relaxing. That’s where Barley Bree comes in. The restaurant is open from 12 noon until 7.30pm, so there is plenty of time for everyone to congregate and enjoy some delicious food and wine. Children are welcome – and have their own menu – so that several generations can eat together, without worrying about the roast potatoes or the washing up.
The wine list
It is probably fortunate for our bank manager that we are quite limited with space here at Barley Bree, otherwise the wine list would run to many more pages. I hope you will find something to suit both occasion and taste. Enjoy browsing.
Champagne and sparkling wines
No celebration would be complete without some bubbles and if you find champagne too dry then try prosecco, which is softer and kinder to the pocket.
Aperitifs and wine by the glass
We can also offer a 250ml carafe to share for two or to indulge for one. Please ask member of staff for the wine of the moment

Other aperitifs and cocktails
Easy drinking whites
A selection of light wines to enjoy with or without a meal.
Aromatic and floral
The grape varieties in this section are all very different and so worth trying if they are new to you. The Gewürztraminer and Torrontes are both slightly off dry and make either a lovely aperitif or match well with spicy food. These are all wines that make excellent pre-dinner aperitifs.
Crisp and refreshing
Mouthwateringly good wines, with crisp fresh fruit flavours, excellent with fish and seafood dishes, from classic Muscadet to interesting Grüner Veltliner.
For a special occasion there are so many great wines to choose from. Here we have a small selection of some classic white wines.
Well, if you are not actually planning a trip to the south of France, to lounge about on a sunny terrace, sipping rosé and nibbling olives, perhaps these chilled, fruity delights might persuade you that Scotland isn’t half bad too.
Easy drinking reds
These are some of the softer style of red wines, pleasant to drink before a meal as well as an accompaniment to good food.
Fruity medium bodied reds
Wines with some bite and character but still deliciously fruity and flavoursome.
Spicy full-bodied reds
Rich flavours to match with steaks or game.
Some winemakers go to great lengths to get the best from their vineyards and sometimes we are lucky enough to enjoy the fabulous results.
Dessert wines and ports
All dessert wines and ports in served in 75mls measures
