When a traditional British pub succeeds at serving superb Thai food, there is certainly something to shout about. Tucked just out of sight of the main bar, the restaurant area of The Barley Mow is a tranquil space where guests can relax and enjoy an extensive, mouth-watering range of meals.

Kicking off with piping-hot chilli squid, lightly battered and placed on a bed of Thai salad with chilli dipping sauce proved a tastebud frenzy. My guest's choice also proved a sagacious one - the king prawns, delicately coated in breadcrumbs, were juicy and flavoursome under their crispy surface, and complemented handsomely by a sweet, punchy dressing.

Next, a generous portion of panang curry, packed full of vegetables and served with sticky rice, left me more than satisfied - while my guest, with a penchant for fire-cracker flavours, opted for the duck red curry. This was the more adventurous option and the risk certainly paid off, with fresh ginger, lychee and curry leaves forming a truly aromatic blend.

In true East-meets-West style, The Barley Mow successfully fuses deliciously exotic food with British pub culture. It even offers additional Sunday roasts and a takeaway service. So, relax and enjoy British creature comforts and experiment with stunning Thai cuisine.
