We'd not planned ahead for Sunday lunch so this was our fourth attempt at finding a pub to eat in and we were delighted. It's been extended since our last visit which has been done brilliantly and the menu is great. I had trouble picking. I saw a couple of roast dinners so asked if I could have one without... More

After reviewing Trip Advisor my partner and I called in at the Barley Mow for an early evening meal on Thursday 23rd of February. This was our first visit to the Brasserie and first impressions were pleasing. The environment was warm and welcoming with friendly and helpful bar staff. After taking a drink in the bar area we moved through... More

Heard the re-vamp of this pub round the corner and decided to give it a go. Book via their website which was very very easy. The venue looks great and very clean and cosy at the same time. Greeted well by a gentleman behind the bar. Drinks ordered and we were shown to our tables on time. Greeted by a... More

Hi Christo E, Thanks a lot for your comments. For the most past it would seem a successful visit to The Barley Mow but not without some areas to work on. I have taken all of your comments regarding the menu on board and, seeing as we have a menu change upcoming it might be that we can facilitate some... More

Just come back from visiting tonight for my wife birthday dinner. Although the place was nice decor, food was pretty average. As it was my wife birthday, i thought they would have done something for her as I spoke to Jonny twice on the phone during the past week, but they failed to do anything.

Hi there David, I am so sorry about this, we are normally very good at dealing with birthday celebrations and making the person in question feel as special as they deserve to feel. It seems on this occasion we regrettably let one slip through the net. I feel particularly bad as you did speak to me prior to the booking... More

We stopped for lunch after a good walk in the great park. We haven't been since it was refurbished and fancied a nose. From first entering the pub, the barman was really friendly and chatty. He made you feel very welcome and was keen to help. This was a real bonus and I don't think enough pubs do this. We... More

We revisited for Dinner after a disappointed first visit, and this time we couldn't fault it. Starters, mains and deserts where all very good. we shared a Chateaubriand and it was very nice, so good that I have booked for Valentines night so looking forward to another nice evening meal. Thank you Jonny for a great evening.

Hi there, What an excellent turn around, it seems!! It is always a wonderful thing when we give a great experience but is made that little bit more sweet when we have rectified a previously bad one. I do hope this means we will see more of you in the future. Best wishes, Jonny O'Connor General Manager More

Has great potential - food better than average but luke warm. My husband and I had the steak and it was perfectly cooked and not tough but flavour slightly odd. Our friends had two different fish dishes - tiny servings. Puddings again tasty but mine was on the cold side of warm (even though I'd specifically said I didn't want... More

Hi there Jo, It seems like this wasn't the best performance from us on this occasion and for that I am very sorry. It doesn't sound like there was one thing that was done terribly but a few mediocre components that have all compounded into a notably average experience. We do our best to ensure that everyone has a fabulous... More

Atmosphere and refurbishment was very nice and welcoming, so were the staff, the food was nice apart from my starter of the avocado and watercress salad, unfortunately the dressing was so acidic that you could taste none of the other ingredients(I could not eat it).Lovely theatre style kitchen so you can see food being prepared. Puddings were really nice, I... More

Hi Jan, Thank you for taking the time to leave us this wonderful review. It is really great that (for the most part) everything was spot on. On a reassuring note, we have recently revised the dressing on the avocado salad as a number of people mentioned that it was a little over acidic. I understand that you may want... More

We visited The Barley Mow earlier today and will definitely be spending many more Sunday afternoons there. The roast beef was beautiful and as the title of this review suggests, the pistachio soufflé was possibly the best dessert we've ever tasted. We regularly visited The Sun Inn in Chobham and The Barley Mow is as good, if not better...which we're... More

Description
Overlooking the beautiful green, we have sympathetically restored the gorgeous historic inn to create a warm and welcoming pub and brasserie with plenty of nooks and crannies for leisurely lunches, family gatherings and quiet post-work pints with friends and colleagues. Our lovely conservatory will soon become a popular spot for Sunday lunch and we are sure that our comfy armchairs in front of a roaring log fire will be hard to leave on a chilly winter's day. Whatever the reason for your visit, we're sure there is the perfect spot waiting for you so why not pull up a chair and let us look after you. We look forward to welcoming you.
