Set in the heart of the South Downs, The Barley Mow has been a pub since the mid-1800s and it has that genuine olde-worlde feel thanks to its large riverside garden, four fireplaces and traditional skittle alley. The pub’s five local ales change with the seasons, as do the dishes on the all-day à la carte menu. Fresh fish is brought in daily, venison is likely to feature in autumn, and good old-fashioned bubble and squeak is a year-round popular starter. For dessert, expect the likes of chocolate brownie and Crunchie sundae. There is also a great selection of wine and whisky, a very popular carvery on Sunday, and an excellent curry night on Wednesday. Dogs are treated to water bowls and biscuits, and a function room is available to hire. New owners Lorraine and Thomas simply fell in love with the pub, and we’re sure you will too.
