We were walking back to our hotel and saw this pub and decided to have a quick drink. The pub ambience/decor and staff reminded me of the pub that featured in "men behaving badly". A very relaxed... more »
Lovely welcome from the bar staff. Cosy, quirky pub with a lovely vibe. The carvery was absolutely outstanding with choice of 4 perfectly cooked meats, crispy spuds, huge homemade yorkies, stuffing... more »
I regularly visit The Barley Mow and enjoy their Sunday carvery. Usually greeted with a friendly atmosphere this last Sunday (3rd February) was very different. When we arrived at 2pm, a very drunk man was asleep on the bar and after an hour or so of napping, he woke and continued drinking. A short time later a physical altercation broke out between the sleepy man and another and it was very unpleasant to watch. The chef ran out of the kitchen to help break up the fight, along with another patron - while the barman just watched. Neither person involved in the fight was asked to leave, the sleeping man left of his own accord (now very very drunk) while the other was able to continue drinking. Why is behaviour like this acceptable at 3pm on a Sunday afternoon in what is supposedly a welcoming, family friendly pub? I was shocked that none of the pub staff took control of the situation or demonstrated that behaviour such as that wouldn't be tolerated. When we arrived at 2pm there was a young family enjoying a game of pool and I am just grateful that they had left by the time this ridiculous show occurred. Really let down by this pub and will think twice before visiting again.
Excellent night, really nice people, felt very welcome
