We went to the Barley Mow on Saturday evening to celebrate our first wedding anniversary. I will say from the beginning the staff were very warm and friendly and the pub itself looked clean and welcoming, this is the only reason it gets an average score rather than poor because it went downhill from there.... We were shown through to... More

We have passed by this pub on and off in the day-time for a long time but only eaten there a few times as our timing as been out for their opening hours. Recently, we needed a snack lunch. So we shared a 'posh hot dog'. This was excellent with local sausage well cooked/onions - baguette and proper fries and... More

Visited for our wedding anniversary, perhaps a bit pricey but you get what you pay for in our experience, my husband had the mixed grill which was a varied selection of chargrilled good quality thickly cut meats (other places tend to do meats more thinly on a mixed grill but perhaps a little cheaper) I had the duck breast which...

We visited this restaurant as part of a reasonably large party for a special birthday celebration. The welcome by the staff was warm, and the restaurant was very well appointed and comfortable. The service was fantastic from start to finish, and nothing was too much trouble. The food was delicious, hot, and the steaks were perfectly cooked. The menu offered... More

We are regular visitors of the Barley Mow as we are always guaranteed a fantastic meal and excellent service. Last night was a one off gourmet burger night which was a fabulous week night treat. Hopefully it'll become a regular thing!

Having been a little disappointed with most of the eateries in the area we decided to give the Barley Mow a whirl based on the review on here. The place is friendly and the food very good. They even managed to cater for a gluten free vegetarian! You can expect a very small wait as the food is prepared freshly... More
