My husand, dog and I were camping at the amazing Treveague Farm last weekend and spent 2 evenings at the Barley Sheaf. We arrived for a quick pint but stayed for 2...the landlord and all his staff were so welcoming and to cap it all the woodburner was chucking out the heat. Bliss. The following night we were knackered after... More

My husband and I took our two dogs to this Dog Friendly pub. It was quite busy but one of the staff brought out a couple of dog biscuits and when our dinner order arrived we were very pleased. The Bakewell Tart we had for afters was nice and moist. We would recommend a visit.

We attempted to and then finally ate in this pub on the Saturday of the bank holiday weekend. This pub is really nicely decorated with a lovely looking restaurant area, a pub area and a games area which is good for kids. The garden looked nice but was too chilly to sit in. Having tried to call the pub at... More

Walked from Boswinger Youth Hostel to The Barley Sheaf at Gorran Churchtown one evening and enjoyed a casual meal and a drink. I had half a pint of local cider and a vegetarian burger. Very enjoyable.

Weary of average fish n chips, stodgy pies and overpriced pub norms, we followed a local recommendation and booked a table. Glad we did. My steak was delicious with an authentic chargrilled flavour. I'd ordered medium and it was exactly that. I took my time and cleared everything on the plate. The Burger ordered on the other side of the... More

Very disappointed on revisit to this pub standards have slipped beyond recognition so bad we had to send it back and walked out. Toasted sandwich was burnt like charcoal but they tried to hide it, chips just as bad, meat tough presentation salad used to try and hide disaster surrounding it. Surely somebody must have realised how bad it was... More

Having walked all day we were very pleased to find this welcoming pub for our meal. The fish and chips and Barley burger with sweet potato fries were very good. Fresh salad and quality ingredients. Great beer with guest ales. In particular the staff were friendly and very attentive and keen to ensure we had a good meal. Generally the... More

Stopped by here very briefly on a recent sunday afternoon for a drink. A well lit venue with a bustling atmosphere - it felt both comfortable and inviting. There was a fire lit which earns the place plus points and although I did not eat here, the menu looked good and was very reasonably costed.
