The Barley Mow

8 Love It
This corner pub in Marylebone started life in 1791 as a meeting place for farmers to pawn their goods. Legend has it that the wooden snugs (now listed) either side of the bar gave them a bit of privacy in which to make their transactions. These days, there's a good range of lagers and bottled beers along with the ales, plus food (mainly Pieminster pies), with music in the evening mix.

One of my favourite boozers in London town. Just a real English pub with no frills.

The Barley Mow is one of my favourite haunts in Marylebone. It's an old school, classic boozer, with not much to show for itself (in a good way). You'll find a grotty carpet, old tables and stools, and alcohol. Just the way I like it. There are private little booths where you can booze secretly. Even better.

Fantastic traditional pub. I really love the old snugs and original layout. Unfortunately a big drawback is the service, which has been extremely lacking on each of my visits, also the music is way too loud. What a shame. Nevertheless,it is worth a visit.


Nice pub, great snugs, but lacks atmosphere and not a great range of beer. Glad it has reopened after years of neglect though.


Great little pub with a great atmosphere. quiz night on saturday nights. cant wait to go back


Great little pub hidden just off Baker Street. Went there last Saturday night for the pub quiz, which was fab - got quite competitive though! Lovely old wooden booths around the bar.
