About our venue

The Barley Mow is located in the very picturesque village of Clifton Hampden. When you step into this old white thatched pub built 650 years ago, you step back in time! Mentioned in Jerome K Jerome's novel 'Three Men in a Boat', it was originally two old farm cottages. Inside there is a fireplace which is so large it straddles two different areas of the pub. There are plenty of nooks and crannies where you can savour the atmosphere of a secluded meal by candlelight! Like all Chef & Brewer pubs we employ high quality Chefs who have superb kitchen facilities. The food can be chosen from a main menu or unique Specials from the chalk boards which allow our Chefs to show their flair! You will be served meals which have been prepared from the freshest of ingredients and cooked to order. To complement your meal there is an extensive choice of quality wines or real ales and other drinks are available at the bar. Food can be eaten anywhere in the pub or outside in the large garden during the summer. For your comfort, we have made the garden non smoking during the summer time, you can however smoke outside the front of the building. The cosy atmosphere of this destination food house is enhanced by the friendly, helpful staff. Come along soon for a rather special experience. Your first visit is sure not to be your last.
