This is a place a visit at least weekly, since it's close to work. A typical McMennamins in terms if menu and themed decor. But what I love about it is the waitstaff. Low key and friendly, they never hover but are always attentive.

The beers on tap change often. The soups and specials are consistently good and while not an English pub by a long shot, it does have the intimate feel of one.

This isn't high cuisine. It's good bar food, even the salad. I usual go for one of the specials. The burgers are excellent. And the veggie grill is a good light option.

One great new addition is the outdoor heated seating area. Set back from the road and covered it made the restaurant a great option for sunny days all the way through November.

When you're near this end of Hawthorne it's a solid choice.

I didn't have anything to eat, but the beers were great. They are very smooth. The are about $4.50 or less then that if they're on special. I would recommend trying anything on special because I had 3 different kinds and all were good.

If you find yourself getting upset that Jerry died and abandoned you, cruise into the Barley Mill and grab a pint. Everythings gonna be alright.

It is a bar, with that you should expect the menu will include many burgers and fried items. First time at a McMenamin's and my girlfriend immensely enoyed the "ale sampler" (see photo), and a fantastic african chicken curry soup with her beer burger. I also enjoyed a great burger with a decent glass of white. Great ambiance and our service was ok, but we weren't looking to be babysat.
