most things modernise over time but not the Barley Mow. That's its attraction and charm. The accommodation is fine, the breakfast excellent but the real appeal is the pub that never changes. Good variety of beer all served from a jug. No fruit machines just room for discussion with your friends and neighbours. Just what a pub used to be.... More

We walked 1.5 miles from the Carsington Water campsite and couldn't believe the timewarp that greeted us as we opened the door. The Jacobean wood-panelled bar had a fire blazing (a chilly end of August night), bench seats fitted round the whole room and 3 tables made of slate from an old billiards table. The landlady serves from a hatch... More

In the middle of nowhere, and a fabulous old worldy pub! No cash registers, beer out the barrel / jug. Stone floors, log fires, wooden beams. 2 sisters run the pub and serve you in a small window. They don't smile or make conversation mind - probably counting all that money they make has made them zombiefied! Great choice of... More

Not sure how my review is so much different but we arrived yesterday afternoon with such great expectations. The Inn was closed so took a little while to find anyone and we were shown to a door at the otherside of the courtyard. No problem with this but we were told this door had to be left unlocked at all... More

This pub is located in a lovely Derbyshire village. The building is an old mansion house- superb. The bar is very small and quirky but with a great log fire- perfect for a cold and wet November evening. The bar is like a serving hatch with beer barrels where the back bar optics are usually placed- a great choice of... More

It has all been said. Take the opportunity to stay in this amazing place and experience something completely different that may not be around for much longer. An ancient listed building oozing with character. Suberb real ale and cider. Truly friendly landlady and locals. Excellent value for money, comfortable bed, spacious room - en suite with lots of hot water.... More

Spent a weekend here in June. The pub is in the small Derbyshire village of Kirk Ireton and is unique. I arrived on Friday afternoon, met by Mr Short and after a chat I wondered off to look around the church. Do take a few minutes to do this. Returned to the pub after a friendly chat with the guy...
