Combining both a traditional pub setting and a cosy dining area, the family-run outlet presents a fresh, comfortable ambience, and no-frills but fully tasty meals.

The new Country Barn Pub & Restaurant, while with a name that boasts a two-decade history, is welcomingly fresh in all that it now has to offer from its location in the bustling USJ Sentral commercial district of Subang Jaya. Nestled among the shop lots in Jalan USJ Sentral 3, just across from the USJ Giant Hypermarket, is this family-run pub and restaurant that showcases an elegantly styled bar and a distinctly designed dining space.

The dinner menu at Country Barn offers an array of comforting favourites that are both of Asian and Western origin. The selection presented here are all specialty food items by the members of the family that operates the outlet, making each dish a tasty, home-style, hearty serving with a sense of honesty in them.

Aloha Bacon Pizza & Anchovies with Sausage

Some of the deliciously satisfying dishes that are served here, strictly Country Barn style, are King Gopal’s Uppu Curry, Mary’s Mutton, Pork Burger, Chicken Burger, CB Chicken Wings, The Chief’s Pork Steak, Chicken Chop, Bangers and Mash, Piglets in Blankets, Aloha Bacon Pizza, Siew Yoke Pizza, Chicken Masala Pizza, Tuna Cheese Melt, Loaded Tortilla Chips, Hot Chick 69, Vegetarian Pizza, and many more.

                                                      Mary’s Mutton & Chicken Chop

The firm belief of the family that runs Country Barn, is that how food is cooked for the family at home is how it is cooked in Country Barn. This is reflected also in the food’s presentation as the dishes are never overdressed.

Bangers and Mash & Hot Chick 69

Also to be noted is the elegant and cosy character of the outlet. Upon entering the premise, guests are greeted by the long black marble-topped bar that houses the draught beer taps, and the exquisite, glimmering mosaic feature wall. Guests have the pick of four seating choices.

It isnt about the destination, but more about the journey“, shared Siva Zaphod Chandran, VIMA Founder.
VIMA has always been about elevating musicians, and we tend to do this even more effectively by creating a platform that drives publicity to the nominees. This is why over the years, we have placed more emphasis on the public voting segment and allowing each category to have a bigger list of nominees over a longer period of voting time. Over the course of 10 years, we have also moved on from huge single awards night presentation themes to more focused, publicity driven Microawards segments that harnesses the online viral strength of social media postings,  LIVE videos and stories.Unlike most other major awards platforms, VIMA has always played a “behind-the-scenes” approach by providing free coaching,mentoring, marketing & PR strategies, connecting musicians for product endorsements, gigs, campaigns launches, media appearances and so much more. We have never taken credit for what we have done in the lives of thousands of musicians, and we hope a whole new generation of musicians will benefit when VIMA introduces several new radical changes by 2020.” he added.
