Barrington Brewery and Restaurant-- a below average bar with bad food

After a day of skiing at Jiminy Peak and on the way back to the Torrington area we had dinner at this dump. We had a reservation for 12 that they promptly honored but from there it was all down hill. From the wrong number of chairs to a missing waitress it was all bad. When the waitress arrived with the food and used the "auction method" to serve it she actuall y threathened to return a dish to the kithcen because nobody was claiming it. We of course were busing trying to get the plates she had brought to the right people and we were not doing so quick enough for her. As for the food, terrible. Wings that were all fat and not a drop of heat dripping oil, nachos with barely anything on the stale chips. My burger was advertised as grass fed hormone and antibiotic free, it may have been but it looked and tasted like a hockey puck. Needless to say it was, like every meat dish ordered , cooked to well done, despite requests to the contrary. Everyone thought the food was poor. Beer? Not very good for a brew pub. Berkshire Blond was not that different then Bud and the Pale Ale had a fruity taste that didn't seem right to me although I'm no expert in Pale Ale. The meal was so bad we skipped dessert.
Stay away, stay very far away.
