Blackthorn _ left this review about Barony

A good sized, L-shaped pub, it was surprisingly busy on a recent cold and wet mid-week evening, although it had thinned out considerably by about 8:00pm, so perhaps it’s the sort of place where people pop in for a couple of drinks after work.

In some ways it’s rather difficult to describe the interior as it was really very dark in there, with the majority of the lighting coming from candles on all the tables and window sills, supplemented by a few meagre globe lamps. From what I could make out, it was quite ornate and elaborate with a panelled ceiling having dark green painted inlays and gold cornice work around the edge. Some attractive and colourful tiling covered the lower half of much of the walls, and there were a couple of old fireplaces at the rear, although rather than a real fire they just contained more candles. Some very large brewery mirrors covered the remainder of the wall space, and there were dark wooden boards on the floor. Full height windows at the front and further glazing to the side must create a quite different atmosphere during daylight hours.

The menu looked to offer a fairly concise selection of pub grub dishes, such as steak & ale pie, fish & chips, burger and so on, although that said the prices were somewhat above your normal pub prices, with the main courses ranging from anywhere around a tenner right up to £25, with even the steak & ale pie coming in at £16. My Truffle mac’n’cheese was a pretty decent dish and a generous portion and came with some very tasty garlic bread and a decent side salad.

Beers on tap were Stewart’s 80/-, Born in the Borders’ Foxy Blonde and Game Bird and their own Baroney Ale. Cider choice was a pretty decent Rosie’s Pig and Orchard Thieves which is far better than the usual dross that you seem to get around these parts. Overall I thought this was a decent enough pub, although it does seem to be quite focused around the food more so than somewhere to pop in for a casual pint.

this place is a bitt... swanky for me. Gastro high end food menus laid out on candle lit tables... all very posh. Seemed to be a well run place though and my porter was excellent - great range of ale.

ROB Camra left this review about The Barony Bar

An L shaped pub with lots of pew like seating around the sides, along with some standard dining tables and chairs. Live music is advertised every couple of weeks. There were 6 beers available, none of them very interesting really. I had a pint of a beer from Stewart which was just about drinkable. I used to like this bar when I worked just down the road. It hssn't improved with age in my opinion.
