    (See details below for more specific hours of operation)

    Originally established in 1917 as a working barn and stable, the Barn is back after a two year renovation! The Barn main restaurant and Patio Bar re-opened in July 2020 for service to the general public. As of October 2020, the Barn is open for indoor dining (25% capacity), patio dining and takeout service with weekday hours only. We project to begin adding weekend hours as we start to offer entertainment acts on the outdoor stage sometime after opening. This will of course be done by closely following guidance from the California Department of Public Health. The Barn restaurant features four primary food stations (Deli, Salads, Hot Table [comfort food], Grill) and a grab-and-go retail concept. For Summer  and Fall 2020, only Hot Table and Grill will open. Barn dining guests 21-and-up will be able to visit the outdoor Patio Bar for beer and wine service as well.

  • COVID-19 Response

    We thank all of our guests who have put their trust in us since we opened this summer. We continue to take every precaution to ensure we operate safely in this COVID environment: 

    • Our tables (max 4 guests) are distanced 6 feet apart, disinfected after every use, and sanitized nightly. 
    • We require face coverings for staff and for guests whenever they are not eating or drinking. 
    • Social spacing markers are strategically placed throughout the Barn, along with sanitation stations, and physical distancing is enforced. 
    • Entry / exit points are contactless and so is our payment system. 
    • Each night, we disinfect and sanitize all high-touch surfaces, bathrooms, and other common areas using an electrostatic backpack sprayer with an EPA-registered disinfectant.
    • Staff are required to take the online campus wellness check daily.
    • Staff are required to wear gloves and replace often (finishing one task and starting another).
    • Staff are required to wash hands for at least 20 seconds under hot water at the beginning of shift and at least once per hour (or any time gloves may be contaminated).

    We thank the campus community for continuing to support us, because we'll continue to be here for you!

Time Lapse of The Barn Construction

 

 

The Barn Stable Tasting Series

In October 2019, the UCR Dining team began previewing the new Barn Restaurant & Stable experience with the UCR community. About 25 enthusiastic staff and faculty were given a hardhat tour of the construction site. This was followed by tastings hosted by partner brewers and wineries to identify prospective new beverages for the Stable lounge. Thanks to all who joined us!
