The venue was perfect. The food well prepared and efficiently served as was the wine. The manager Led was particularly helpful. A great time was had by all who attended.

We went for a team social at Baranis where we booked the petanque pitch which was good fun, and had drinks and some food. It's a lovely, atmospheric bar if you are looking for something more quiet and sophisticated with great cocktails and friendly and very helpful staff. Would definitely recommend and go back again!
