We booked a table at the last minute. Have had a few "nasty surprises" in the past with visiting a "country pub". But this was a VERY pleasant surprise. Warm goats cheese with onion marmalade was to die for! The pork belly was one of the best we have had! No noisy background music either which is refreshing and no... More

Fantastic food. The sirloin steak was cooked to perfection and the cheese sauce was amazing. The spicy duck pieces and garlic mushroom starters were top class. We will definitely be going back there.

The extended family and I have returned to The Barley Mow about four times in the last few weeks due to a 'clan gathering' to visit a sick relative. After spending hours at a hospital bedside, we just needed somewhere friendly & informal to get a bite to eat in the evening. We tried a number of different pubs/restaurants in... More

We have been here many times but not recently. The atmosphere of this old country pub is great. The man who looks after the restaurant side is the most polite and charming host. He is also very efficient. So was the young waitress. Couldn't do enough for us. My wife and her brother had the steak pie, small appetite, (£6.95).... More

We ate here at lunchtime on Sunday. We booked a table but the restaurant was so quiet that we could have just turned up. I was surprised how quiet it was - but maybe because of a local festival (Wimborne History Festival) people were otherwise occupied. The service was good - the man (manager or possibly the owner) was polite... More

Visited here on Sunday evening with mum and was greeted by a very nice Norwegian waitress. I ordered potted crab and toast, which was tasty but came on a wooden board, plates please! We both ordered liver, bacon with caramelised onion gravy with mash. I ordered mine pink while mum likes hers well done! The mains were as ordered, HOT... More

Having recently moved to the area and still trying out local restaurants, the Barley Mow is becoming a regular favourite. Took some visiting friends here and the menu has something for everyone. The Thai dishes on the menu come particularly recommended............and the beer is very good too!

A lovely warm welcome on arrival, nothing too much trouble. The staff were helpful and did not hurry us. There were nine of us but we all received our food together and it was all freshly made by the chef - excellent.

Really love the food here. Ranges from traditional English to Malay. The pork belly with really crunchy crackling is well worth having. Tonight I had a super red mullet off the specials board and the Penang curry is always a good choice. Good Badger beers too.

Thank Peter S
