According to TripAdvisor, these are best restaurants to try in Barnsley!

Updated: Oct 27, 2022

Barnsley has seen an immense rejuvenation recently, making it one of the best places in Yorkshire to head out for drinks and a bite to eat. There are too many outstanding places to mention, so in case you’re a little stuck for which place to head to for your latest celebration, we’ve taken the Top 5 rated local restaurants on TripAdvisor to hopefully make that decision a little easier.


Situated on Market Street in the centre of Town, this Turkish delight of a restaurant fuses together authentic Turksih cusiane and local favourites through their ‘Barnsley Special Meals’. Now famous for their grill dishes ranging from lamb shish to lam ribs, chicken shish to chicken wings, Pasha also encourages diners to try out their vegetation menu which again is an absolute winner! Plus, if you don’t fancy leaving the house tonight, they’ve got you covered with delivery (if you’re within their radius…)


The name alone makes you want to visit! Sat just on the outskirts of the town centre on McLintock Way, this diamond of a restaurant offers an authentic Italian experience with plate after plate of traditional Italian food. Freshly cooked each day, The Secret Italian boasts a super friendly atmosphere making it the ideal place to revisit time after time. After 271 reviews, 257 were graded as ‘Excellent’ – which tells you everything you need know!


There can’t be a better review for a restaurant when someone’s visit is described as ‘a lovely experience’, and that was just one of the 180 ‘Excellent’ reports left by customers. Describing themselves as ‘one of Barnsley’s hidden treasures’, this small but cosey restaurant based on Eastgate is quickly becoming a town favourite. Their photos say it all, whether it’s tucking into some slow braised beef, or maybe their duck breast salad, this local treasure with a Polish twist is one to whack on the Barnsley bucket list!


Sitting pretty at number two, Bistro at the Pocket pride themselves on a mix of fresh, homemade food and a cracking atmosphere. With a great price range on offer, their ChateauBriand is to die for, the chance of having the best fillet steak is high, and you can even book yourself in for a good old Sunday roast dinner. The next time someone asks if you fancy going to The Bistro at the Pocket, you snap their hand off and get ready to enjoy your afternoon/evening!


With over a mouthwatering 1000 ‘Excellent’ reviews, Flavela offers an authentic Brazilian Rodizio Bar and Grill experience. Providing ‘a true taste of Brazil’, their great customer service and outstanding, locally sourced meat means that it’s quickly become a Barnsley must-visit since it opened a few years ago. Situated on Church Street bang across from the Town Hall, Fravella is perfect for an evening out with family, and just as perfect for a night out with the mates. Sit back, relax and get ready to feast!
