Been to this pub a lot in the last 5 years, and this the worst meal and service we have had. Will not be back for a while
We came for a visit yesterday and was very disappointed! We was first inside and others were getting food before ours. We had been waiting an hour with our hungry one year old getting upset so we asked how long our food would be bearing in mind we had ordered chips and cheesy garlic bread.. to then be told they forgot to put our order through and would take another 20-30 minutes. At this point we decided to just leave. Over all the whole experience of the barley mow was awful.
Good service, accommodating for kids and great atmosphere. The food however was hugely overpriced for what you receive, £15 for a standard pub meal you would expect more fresh and impressive meals.
Everyone was so friendly and lovely. We took our dog and one of the staff wanted to take a picture of her to enter her into their “mutt of the month” competition. On top of this, the food was absolutely delicious and such good value for money! We sat out in the glorious sunshine in the beautiful garden. Can’t wait to go back.
The garden there is pretty nice, great for kids, the staff were really good too, both friendly, nice and attentive however the food was really overpriced for what it was, also a selection of generic lagers with nothing interesting
My partner and I have called in here a few times over the last two years. It’s a lovely finish to a day on the coast en-route home.
Each time the servers are lovely and attentive
Our visit yesterday was the BEST so far.
Billy greeted and seated us and was just a star ⭐️⭐️ he was the most lovely and attentive but not intrusive ... it’s a fine mix to achieve
My fruit cider was thoughtfully and beautifully garnished with strawberries.
The home made salmon quiche was out of this world with amazing flavour, texture and totally FRESH!
Omg did I mention the baked cheesecake? Again fresh, tasty and wonderful flavour combination. Enough to share between two ... if you have the room have it to yourself!!
I look forward to my next beach trip and popping in there on the way home.
We went for dinner and the menu was more relevant for a lunchtime menu. Very few main courses that seemed appropriate. Starters were very good though. Ideal venue for parents with small children.
We were able to enjoy a meal as a family without having to worry about bored children as there is a play area.
Really helpful and friendly staff, highly recommended
Very disappointed. Several points rated well below the information on the website.
Lasagne was Luke warm with top layer of pasta hard and sauce congealed.
Half empty plates sat on the table far too long.
10% service charge automatically added. But optional. Don’t agree with that way of conducting business.
Won’t be there again.
Lovely meal in the garden. Had taken 90 year old Mum for lunch. Great food and service and lovely friendly staff.
Only one niggle - we parked close to the main road expecting to go in through the building which was a struggle for Mum to walk, only to be told the entrance was through the garden. We did see the sign once we had walked past the entrance but a sign as you enter the car park could be a good idea.
Great adjustments to COVID and really friendly helpful staff… the service was really good and we would definitely eat here again.
First time at the Barley Mow with my family. Lovely atmosphere, food was brilliant, staff fantastic. My children loved the play area. Will definitely be back.
Enjoyed eating in the garden on a Saturday lunchtime. We were in a quiet section but it was also good for families. Would have liked more vegetables it the dishes were interesting and beautifully cooked. The dessert portion seemed rather small.
We came yesterday for a family meal and it was wonderful! The children loved the play area. Everyone was really helpful and friendly and all covid secure !
The food was brilliant. Even the kids meals were high quality and plenty!
Would thoroughly recommend the Barley Mow.
Wasn’t very happy with the service -Asked for a jug of water when arriving at 12pm, didn't receive this until 1:45pm after asking 3 more times. We had our menus taken off us after eating the main and wasn’t asked if we wanted any dessert, had to go up and ask for someone to come and take our order for dessert.
I’ve often driven past and my daughter thought the play area looked good. Went with two five year old grandchildren and they loved it. Food much better than expected and service was excellent.
Amazing lunch for my birthday, food and service was great. Looking forward to going back with the kids so they can use the park in the garden
Great good, great staff and a great pub. Sun was out and the park was amazing. Kept the little one entertained.
Lovely food, outside on a beautiful summer day (at last!). Well tended to and well priced. Couple of vegan options. Only criticism - not a single mask or visor on any staff, I know it was outside but staff are moving between many tables.
The atmosphere is great as it has a nice family feel. I had the Sunday roast and it was great! Combined with great service it was a lovely place to dine.
Very nice Sunday roast with large portions, good service, very pleasant outside seating
The food was amazing and the outside space was really great. Definitely will go again and recommend to others 👍
Food good. Service inexperienced but not rude or unkind. Cleared table while 2 out of 6 of us where still eating. Staff not wearing masks indoors which is where we were sat.
Decent food, great location, very friendly staff. Booking essential right now.
Very enjoyable family night out. Staff were very attentive, service was good. Food was amazing, I can 100% recommend going to this pub. We had the smoked haddock, beef pie, duck and ham egg and chips between us followed by lemon tart, rhubarb crumble and a to die for cheesecake.
Lovely red haired waitress tended to our needs , lovely outdoor area , food fantastic couldn’t fault it
Lovely out in the sunshine, but would have preferred to be in the away from the building a bit more where most people were seated.
The food was lovely and the waiting staff were very friendly and helpful. Would definitely recommend this place. Ideal for families.
Good space, nice area for the kids to play. Waiting staff were very friendly and helpful and food was delicious!
We booked a table here for my wife’s birthday as it seemed a great place to be with the kids (given the play area). However, our chicken burgers arrived raw. The manager basically just passed on the blame to his trainee chef, which is absurd. Management should not have put a trainee chef who is on trial, on poultry or fish. Management should always accept responsibility, not cower behind something. We were offered only those 3 meals on the house (there were 8 of us!). The whole meal experience was ruined by that point, everyone at the table left wondering if they’d be sick. Manager didn’t seem particularly bothered about the raw chicken to be honest! And it was only after we said we refused to pay for any of the meals that the manager sent someone out to tell us we only had to pay for drinks. In my opinion, management is totally unfit for purpose. Didn’t even have the courage or decency to come out and deal with it in person. Will never return. Will tell people to stay clear. You should too
Frist time me and my partner visited fantastic garden staff were very welcoming food was fantastic best burger we have both had for a long time will definitely be going back
Unfortunately our order did not go through on the till & it was only when we asked where our olives were it was realised BUT apart from that it was excellent -food great -lovely welcome for the 3 of us -we took dog- definitely will visit again
10 out of 10 for food and customer service, would definitely recommend! 3 roast beefs and a scampi with chips went down a treat, can't wait to come back.
Visited for Sunday lunch; not a large menu for any course.
The food was good enough; all staff were very pleasant and the service was very good.
Excellent food, good sized portions, service outstanding.
Great food lovely place just tad chilly. Will be back
Very tasty food and generous portions. Will visit again soon.
Friendly staff, gorgeous food and pleasant surroundings. All felt very COVID safe!
Food was with hindsight quite poor value.
