This is just a perfect old style pub / bags of atmosphere, quirky decor, nice beer (several Kelham Island Brewery ales from Sheffield) and a friendly, delightful and energetic couple running it. There’s a nice little terrace outside to catch a bit of setting sun,...More

Stayed at the beautiful Cascade Gardens and recommended to go to The Barley Mow. Food was excellent, made to feel very welcome. So good that we went back the next night and had an even better evening with live music, dancing and fine local ciders....More

What a gem - small but full of character. The food is excellent; home cooked and delicious. Friendly and welcoming atmosphere. We went several times and were never disappointed. Music on Saturday evenings - what more could you ask for?More
