John Barleycorn Inn
Reviewed 7 April 2013

A quaint 'olde worlde' pub and restaurant where we were made very welcome. Three rooms available for B & B and our room was extremely comfortable and well appointed. The traditional pub was busy both in the bars and the dining areas, but was not 'noisy' as such with non of the usual games machine / loud music etc. but had a wonderful friendly atmosphere. Although there was no choice for breakfast, it was a well presented and well cooked traditional full English.
Will definately return again if in the area. Recommended!!

Room Tip: Three room available... no numbers just names "Chocolate" "Africa" and "Fra...

Sunday lunch in an unfamiliar pub can be hit or miss. This was definitely a hit. Great terrine to start followed by tasty beef. Proper roast potatoes, crispy Yorkshire pudding and decent veg were served on hot plates with proper care and attention. Top notch.

I stopped into the John Barleycorn mainly to get out of the rain and use up some time and was happy to find the place warm and comfortable with friendly people there. I had the Steak and Stilton pie £12 (with veg) which was very cheesy tasting (which I liked) and the meat was of good quality, nice pastry too. The Owners and staff made conversation and the Lounge Bar was a relaxing place to eat, with freshly decorated walls, nice furniture and exposed oak beams with lots of character. No air's to the place unlike some Goring businesses, but very natural and down to earth, yet clean and modern in a way too. Charming place.

Quaint old style pub, good service, average pub grub.

Don't expect more than fried food such as scampi and chips, fish and chips etc. Vegetables were poor quality and there was only one vegetarian main course option. Prices were a little high for the quality.

Love visiting this traditional pub when visiting family in Goring & for a change this visit was blessed with sun & we enjoyed our lunch out in the garden.

Good menu choice at reasonable prices, enjoyed our fish & chips, cider & beer. Great atmosphere with staff always good fun, friendly & efficient. Would recommend th Barleycorn for good quality food, have not stayed overnight.

Always top of the list for a fish and chip dinner in gorgeous Goring on Thames, and certainly some of the best fish and chips we have ever had! While we haven't stayed in the rooms we love the pub, great food (we think the best in the village), friendly, helpful staff and a nice, if occasionally a bit quiet, atmosphere. We have taken many friends and visitors here who always have enjoyed it and recommended it as a place to stay in the area which friends also enjoyed.
