Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Barley Mow

Looks like a traditional village pub from the outside, which sits rather oddly with its (edge of) town centre location. The imposing door from the side road leads to a small bar with some reasonably comfortable seating. However, the main bar at the front has a limited amount of basic wooden furniture (which is presumably easily moved for live entertainment events). I think that Greene King must have sold it on, but there are still plenty of traces of their former ownership around the place. There are also a number of selotaped notices announcing grandly that they have introduced a dress code. Still no real ale, but unlike my previous visit, I did at least get as far as ordering a pint of the taste-free IPA Chilled. This was bad enough, but the polycarbonate 'glass' put the icing on the cake. Drank up quickly, and left...
