My parents have visited the pub on several occasions on there visits to the area but unfortunately the food and standard of service was appalling. This time around. When my mum went to complain she was told by a young waitress that she didn't have time to wait on my parents hand and foot! Not great customer service and perhaps... More

Did a circular walk from the beech at Caerhays via Dodman Point and Gorran Haven and back through Gorran. Lovely pub if you don't want to take a packed lunch. Good selection of food and beers and very helpful staff

We stayed in Goran and this was our nearest pub. We found the locals friendly and most of all the pub was dog friendly. The menu was basic but the food was very good especially the Barley Burger. Plenty of room in the bar with a separate restaurant space and outside a large beer garden. Well worth a visit.

Disappointing meal, we had heard good reports about the meals but must have visited on an 'off' day because the meal was far from good. Mediocre at best!

After reading a couple of bad reviews we bookedvwith some trepidation. Need'nt have worried as the food was very good and the desert excellent. Great atmosphere and the staff very friendly.

The Barley Sheaf is one of those gems that you come across and wonder how it survives. Situated in Gorran Churchtown, it's well away from the beach in neighbouring Gorran Haven and was discovered quite by chance. Having survived a soaking on the coastal path we received a warm welcome in a pleasant setting. There was a plentiful range of... More
