The Barley Mow Review

The Barley Mow is featured in these Guides:

I didn't stay in The Barley Mow long enough to fully take in the atmosphere. It was packed, which you'd think would be a good sign, but we couldn't even get to the bar. From the outside it looked drab and the inside failed to imrove this first impression.

The decor is exactly what you imagine when you think of a plain English pub, except its destination and half the clientele attempts to tell you that this is a cool version. It's not. There are so many bars in the local area with so much more to them that it seems odd that anyone would pick the Barley Mow out to drink in. On the plus side there are a few tables outside which would make it a bit better for the summer months.

The smell didn't intice me to come back for more.

“Are you a lush? Are you demon drinker? Then the Barley Mow is for you. A true pissheads pub. Everyone in there looks like they could be in The Pogues. Is that a blue flashing light? Don’t worry, it’s just an ambulance coming to collect another quitter. As an aside - great music policy.”

“The Barley is an excellent, unpretenious pub, which has been serving good beer in the area long before the style bars moved in. The upstairs lounge is a quiet getaway from the weekend crush downstairs”
