“Lunch at the Barley House”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 24, 2014

We were in Concord for the Art and Bloom Show at the McGowan Gallery and wanted a place to have lunch. I found the Barley House on Trip Advisor and found that it had excellent reviews. I checked out their menu and loved the interesting variety of salads and sandwiches that they offered, not your run of the mill menu.

Our friends were as delighted as we were with the service and food. It was excellent and we would definitely take a ride back to Concord just to go there.

“Nice place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 16, 2014

Stopped in Concord for the evening and went here for dinner. As we waited for a table we went downstairs to a cozy lounge area for a drink. Very nice. We were then texted that our table was ready. The food was very good. I recommend going here if you find yourself in this pretty town.

“A little touch of Europe”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 2, 2013

The Barley House is a small Pub/Restaurant in the heart of Concord NH near the capital the atmosphere is old English with all wood walls and a good size bar in the Pub side there is a good selection of English brews as well as the typical American selection. There are lunch specials and a unique dinner menu. a good quite place to stop for a beer and a few appetizers
The staff is very friendly and it is a comfortable place to socialize after work

“Busy place - great burger”

We went on a Friday night and it was really busy. We waited a while. Staff was friendly and service was good once we were seated. The burger was fabulous! Wow. We will definitely be back.

“Disappointing...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 24, 2013

Based on the excellent reviews here, I was excited to have a meal or two at The Barley House. Sadly, it fell short of expectations. The Blarney Puffs were tasteless. The stew, while tasty, was lukewarm and needed quite a bit of extra salt. The fish and chips were bland. The selection of beer and spirits was impressive, but the food just did not live up to the hype.
