2011-09-02. Stopped in here for a tick on the way through town. We sat inside at Barney’s which was deserted with tons of people sitting on the massive patio. It was overly warm outside so we enjoyed the A/C indoors! Bartender was friendly, beer was better than reviews and legend would have it. It is far from as bad as people are making it out to be, but its far from good either from a beer geek perspective. If you are going here its to try the beer. Meh.

Horrible horrible horrible. Bad music, too bright and wost of all sleazy, currupt bouncers/bartenders. There are much more trendier and ambiant places a block down the street. I wonder how much longer they will survive on the reputation they get from the westerns alumni, who might of enjoyed it 40 years ago...

EDIT - JUNE 2011: I’m told they’re currently brewing a pale ale, so it looks like they’re switching things up every now and then with a rotating brew. Great to see this slight improvement, but my rating remains for the time being. 2009 Review - Another reviewer rightly noted that this place doesn’t really deserve the attention of RBs, but due to some recent improvements and the fact that it’s ’technically’ a brewpub (with two beers! LOL), I’ve decided to review it. I’m going to ignore The Ceeps, which is the section of the building that faces Mill Street. Barney’s comprises the outdoor patio as well as the indoor bar facing Richmond Street. The inside was recently renovated and it’s now much more patron-friendly, with lots of tables and booths, a stage for weekend performers, and a respectable import selection. The service? Well, I don’t think there is any. You go to the bar to order drinks, and on most nights you’ll wait awhile because the place is always so busy. But the indoor bartenders serve draught beer in its proper, branded glassware, which is a nice plus. Selection is all InBev brands, but there’s half decent ones like Bass, Boddington’s, Guinness, Kilkenny, and Stella. Ceeps Lager and Cream Ale are the brewpub’s underwhelming beers. At $3 a pint, though, you can’t really complain. I’ve never tried the food, so I can’t comment on that. In sum, Ceeps/Barney’s offers passable macro beer and rare ’brewpub’ swill, but it mostly serves as a place to get shit-faced with students, and there are much better, more micro-friendly bars in London. Go to Milos’, Beertown, The King Edward, or Black Shire instead.

A huge establishment with a large patio, suitable or grups of university students to hang out. The place has potential to add several taps. It belongs on the site because it is a brewpub, the only one I may point out in London Ontario. Currently the one tap they have on is a passable cream ale. It is a notch up from their lager. Instead of brewing,which they are capacity limited, they could bring in several tap lines and make it interesting. Central location. Points were$4 each, with tip. Go to Chauncey Smith down the road.

No, no, no. Nothing like buying a parking lot and putting in some picnic tables, getting it licensed, and then selling crappy beer. This place is dreadful. I’ll never return, there is absolutely no reason to go here.

This place was a dump, like a skid row bar. Service was ok, the beer atrocious I should mention that although I recently entered this, I was actually there in the mid 90’s

My favorite bar to go with friends for a night out. Not much beer selection but a good atmosphere and awesome service.

Interesting if bijou inside - it’s the old CP Hotel, I think - outside is a massive - I mean MASSIVE patio - entirely populated by UWO students - which can mean some nice eye candy, but they’re busy getting totally paled, so ... They have their own "Ceeps Lager" which is extract-brewed and entirely unmemorable, and not much selection of any other kind - go to Chaucer’s or the Alex P Keaton, nothng to bring you here.

BE WARNED: This is not a place for beer geeks to flock! But it is a brewpub, and they do make one beer, called Ceeps lager/Mustang Ale. The rest of the beer is macro stuff. There’s only a few taps, and the rest is in bottles. Service is always pretty good, and the food is typical deep fried stuff, burgers, fries, etc. It’s full of old retirees in the day, drinking ceeps lager, cause it is only like $2.00 for a half glass, but at night, hundreds of local students flock here to get drunk. Only go here if you are looking for a new rating of rare swill.
