Tittle pretty much says it. Servers are friendly. This is a small old house, converted into a resturaunt and bar. Tight quarters, low cielings make it loud all the time. Sometimes good local music on the week-ends. Pretty good beer selection. I have never eaten anything here that I actually liked much. Met a motorcycle buddy for beer in late... More

My wife and I stopped in for dinner and drinks. The food was a pleasant surprise. Very good and plenty of it. Our server Molly was very helpful in selecting the drinks. She not only knew her beers, but offered samplers of three varieties. We had a very enjoyable evening at the Barley and Hops.

Found the food to be very greasy and not up to California standards of eating healthy at all!! I understand the beer was good, but I guess it would be so you get drunk enough to stomach the greasy food.

Based on reviews on Trip Advisors we stopped in here on our drive thru Sonoma County. Beer list is extensive and varied - not all IPAs - and the food good. BBQ Steak sandwich was a surprise. The onion rings would have been perfect except that few were too brown. Limited wine list but it had something for most everyone.... More

We love brew pubs. This was a fun find. It is an old time saloon type place with plenty of local craft beer on tap. And a very informed and friendly bartender. We stopped in while waiting to go zip lining and made sure to stop back after the trip. We had a late lunch. My husband tried the rib... More

Near 100 degrees inland so we headed out to the coast where it was about 40 degrees cooler!. On the way home we stopped in at Barley and Hops. Occidental is fairly close to the ocean but even here the temperature was in the upper 80's. Walked inside and it was warm, no air conditioning, decided to stay. With the... More

Love this place. Consistently great food, excellent selection of beers on draft and bottles, cute ambiance, used to be an old house. If you go, you must try the Death n Taxes Chocolate Mousse for dessert. Out of this world! The sweet potato fries aren't too shabby either :)

My wife and I ate at this pub during our stay in Occidental. This place has a great selection of beers and ciders, as well as above average food for a pub. I had a portobello mushroom sandwich--very tasty-and my wife had a pretzel-breaded chicken salad, which she also loved. There was a wide variety of burgers and other entrees... More

They had a great selection of bottled and on-tap beers. The food was really above average (I had the mac and cheese, with a side of shoestring fries, made perfectly, my partner had a fish sandwich). The bartender was very attentive and made sure we had all the info we needed. They had the Giants game on, but sadly they... More

Local, and always from-scratch, our pub grub is the best in the area. Everything is below 15 dollars, and hand-made; from pub classics to eclectic favorites. We focus on cooking with craft beer, and serve 13 drafts, and 60+ bottles from local and worldwide craft breweries. A small selection of local wines by-the-glass and hand-crafted local ciders are also available. Live music on the weekends!
