The Barley Mow Review

Things have changed immensely since punters first visited this traditional pub back in 1791 – believe it or not the Barley Mow used to be a farmers pub in a rural part of London. Still, the village pub atmosphere that originated back in the day servicing the thirst of hard working farmers lives on and continues to service the thirst of (hard working?) media types.

Tucked away from the hustle and bustle of Baker Street down Dover Street, the Barley Mow offers Tetley, Marstons, Wadsworth and Adnams in the way of beer; outside seating for them summer days and a step back into time on entering the pub. Two small cubicles (‘snugs’) to the left of the bar are all that remain, possibly in the whole of London, of what used to be part of a licensed pawnbroker – hard times for the landlord led to extreme measures back in the day. These days the snugs serve as private booths for romance to blossom or small groups to take charge off.

Back to the present and The Barley Mow has Sky TV, food from 11.30am till 5pm, and on a Saturday can be booked for private parties of up to 80 guests. Whether you’re into your historical pubs (this is apparently the oldest pub in Marylebone), village atmosphere or simply good beer the Barley Mow is worth a visit. more
