Share The Article

Whether in Bali for a couple of weeks or a lot longer, travelers eventually crave home comforts.

Whether craving a proper, hearty home-cooked meal or a taste of a craft beer from the homelands, there is a very special spot in Canggu that ticks all the right boxes.

Bali’s Canggu has long offered tourist the chance to dine around the world.

From cafe culture to fine dining, from Mexico to India there is an eatery for every occasion, craving and budget in Canggu.

Whether in Berawa or Batu Bolong or stuck in traffic on a shortcut in between, tourists are thankfully never too far from an incredible meal in Canggu. 

The Barn Gastropub & Cocktail Bar can be found on tucked away on the shortcut between Jalan Batu Bolong and Jalan Nelayan in the heart of Canggu.

A spot that has fast become a local favourite for the ‘Gu expat community, The Barn is unfussy, down to earth and seriously good at what they do. 

Bringing the flair and feel of a modern English gastropub to the shores of Bali, The Barn serves up an impressive menu of pub classics, including burgers, pies and salads.

Unlike many a gastropub in the UK, however, there are plenty of tasty options for veggies and vegans too (if you know the you know!). 

The team at The Barn say they are “bringing the character and charm of a vintage London pub to the tropical island of Bali.” This spot if family-friendly and has something to keep everyone fuelled up and having fun. 

In true pub style, everything at The Barn is fairly priced. Many Bali lovers note that the island is not the cheap travel destination it once was, so this eatery serves generous portions for reasonable prices.

We’re talking Bangers & Mash for IDR 110,000, Steak & Chips for IDR 259,000, and BBQ Bacon Burger for IDR 120,000. 

Of course, no self-respecting pub would fail to offer a Full English Breakfast, and this kitchen team knows how to deliver a banging breakfast.

The Full English Breast, available all day long, includes double eggs of your choosing, double bacon rashers, pork sausage, baked beans, tomato, mushroom, two hash browns, and toasted white or sourdough with butter.

Classic British Beans on Toast is on the menu (a backpacker and student fav), and since we’re in Canggu, there is smashed avocado on toast with poached eggs, too.

With sport being such an important part of the tourist experience and expat life in Bali, the pub is an ideal spot to meet like-minded sports fans or grab a pint (or two) after practice.

Sports, health, and fitness are booming in Canggu, and the food and dining scene and The Barn bring the two worlds together seamlessly. 

The Barn is just a 2-minute scooter ride from the iconic Body Factory Bali Gym; it’s actually just a 7-minute walk, the perfect post-workout cool down stroll!

The Canggu Studio, VolleyBall Canggu Court, Jungle Padel Canggu Shortcut, and Bali MMA are all within a few minute’s drive. 

With six huge HD screens perfectly positioned around the bar area and well served by the perfect set air conditioners, The Barn shows all the most popular sports on the box, including Premier League Football, UFC, AFL, and the F1.

Remember that 2024 is an Olympic year; sports fans going on vacation this high season in Bali should start planning where to be and when to not miss any of the big events.

The Olympic Games in Paris will start on Friday, 26th July 2024, and run until Sunday, 11th August.

FYI, if you’re in Bali, you’re gonna want to be cheering for Indonesia in Badminton and Weightlifting; there’s a strong chance of a gold medal this year!

For those who want to get in on the action, all the classic pub and bar games are on offer, too. There’s a pool table (yes, it’s level), a shuffleboard and a foosball table too.

Kids are welcome, and the overly competitive adults, provided they’re well-behaved!
