Malden man left this review about The Blue Barrel

The pub retains the old two room format with the lounge side and vault accessed separately from the street. The lounge side is divided into three connected areas and was fairly busy on an early Saturday lunchtime with most punters watching the early kick off match on Sky. Another screen was showing the horses, muted.
Beamed ceiling, fireplace and bench type seating, the pub feels like it has been untouched for thirty years. There was no one in the vault but darts and pool are available in there.
One hand pump, clip reversed but stated Blue Barrel Bitter, provenance unknown. I had a quick half of keg Stones Bitter, I haven't seen that for years. An available ale would improve this place but it had the feel of an old fashioned local so all the best for the future.
