We (me, Loz, Lynn and Barry) visited The Barley Mow on Saturday 30th May 2015, we walked the very short walk from Moor Brewery Tap, this is also just a straightforward 8-10 min stroll (maybe less) from Bristol Temple Meads Station. This was our last port of call for the day and never really took as much in as I should, however it looked a reasonably tidy pub from the outside set in a residential area. Upon entry the bar was straight ahead, the pub opened out to the left and right with seating and tables and out the back was a covered garden/patio where we sat. Beer choice offered a good selection of cask and keg, however for the life of me I cannot recall what any of us had as I had grown weary of rating by this point and just wanted a beer and to chat. Staff were friendly and offered tasters, the pub was getting busy as it was now early evening on a Saturday. I enjoyed this place, nice atmosphere handy for the station and good to link in with a visit to Moor Brewery Tap (just on a Saturday of course)

The Barley Mow is a traditional pub building thatís been given a makeover inside. Itís close to an area being developed with trendy flats and only a short walk from Bristol Temple Meads station. They have ten kegs and eight casks and the choice of beer was very good - a mixture of Bristol Beer Factoryís own brews and some well chosen guests. (Visited 17 December 2014).

Excellent bar a little off the beaten track. Plenty of BBF beers here, but also with an excellent selection of guests from the area (Moor, Celt, Wild Beer, etc) and some from further afield like Kernel and Siren. Good selection of local bottles too, with some fairly easy to find US and continental offerings. All draught beer available in a third measure. Interior is small, but doesnít feel to cramped. Nice crowd in there. Sunday menu was small, but I had a plate of chilli cheese fries, which basically equated to a very large portion of chilli, with chips for only £5. Definitely worth taking a walk to.

The Barley Mow is actually located but a short walk from the city centre in a more residential part of town. It has a very nice friendly local pub feel and was pleasantly busy on week-day night. I was very impressed by the rather extensive selection of beer - 7 cask and 8 keg, as well as a range of bottles. Obviously there is a good deal of BBF, but plenty of guests also from the likes of Wild Beer, Tiny Rebel, Moor & a new gipsy brewery called Urban Huntsman. A top Bristol beer destination.

A pub run by the Bristol Beer Factory. Their beers predominate, both on cask and in the bottle, although there is often one guest beer. A real local community pub (formerly run by Wadworths), which BBF saved from closure, and is used by a wide mix of people. A short walk from Temple Meads station (take the side exit, cross the footbridge over the river and itís the other side of the new housing estate, situated by the beginning of the Bristol to Bath cycle track). A friendly place, well placed for a crawl incorporating the Bridge Inn, Cornubia and Seven Stars (and Knights Templar JDW). UPDATE - beer range is now far wider, with 7 ales on cask and 8 beers on keg, plus a decent bottled list. Food and service are great too.

Close to Temple Meads station this pub has a great range of craft keg and cask beers all from some of the best breweries in the country plus some US stuff during my visit, food looked great also. Friendly staff and a must visit if in Bristol or with some spare time changing trains.

Barley Mow. Great pub near Temple Meads Station. Solid selection on both keg and cask dispense - 7 cask and 10 keg beers pouring when I was in. A real celebration of the best of britain's new wave of brewers: Arbor, Tiny Rebel, Redwillow, Siren and many more. A few great Bristol Beer Factory brews in there too (it is the brewery tap after all!). Decent enough prices, beers served by pints, halves, and thirds, which is great to see (I was in a rush, so was happy to be able to try a few things in a short space of time). Bottle fridge was small but had plenty of quality from both local and international brewers (Stone, Maui, Trappist ales, etc.). Service was spot on, real cosy feel in there - lovely outdoors area at the rear. Didn't have any food myself, but it looked bloody good going past me. A cracker of a place.

Newly refurbished bringing a fantastic selection of keg, cask and bottled beers. Good balanced food menu with fantastic curried scotch eggs, good service, advise booking if you intend to eat as it can get busy especially in the evenings!
