We care about creating amazing, flavourful, bold food that you’ll go out of your way to get. Barred Rock isn’t anything you might expect. It’s intense, delicious, and everything we serve is carefully made with the best ingredients available. The chicken we use didn’t cross some random stretch of road, it built its own road then crossed just for the hell of it. That’s the Barred Rock way.
Hours: Monday – Saturday from 12pm – 7pm
