Small pub located outside typical pub crawlers route, used mostly by locals. Friday evenings packed with employees from nearby offices. Only 5 minutes walk from Temple Meads station, 3 minutes walk from Moor brewery. Also Left Handed Giant and Good Chemistery breweries are in the area. Nice selection of beers: traditional ales, modern IPA’s, porters, stouts, ciders: 10 taps + 8 pumps. Special events bring very interesting beers e.g. bocks, weizenbocks, schwartzbiers during German week in September/October. Also there is a nice selection of bottled beers from UK, USA, Germany and Belgium. Food is available and it’s amazing. Staff is very friendly and always happy to help and advise. There is a little patio and a few tables in the front of the pub. Wifi available. Almost perfect, except a bit untidy gents loo :(
A traditional-modern, medium sized pub with dark wooden interiors being the main outlet for Bristol Beer Factory. The beer menu is listed on a blackboard in front of the bar, and contains eight cask ales and ten on keg in addition to a large bottled menu including Lervig beers. Sandwich options, I had a tasty one with Goat Cheese. Polite service. Reggae music in the back at our stay. Close to Moor Tap Room and not more than ten minutes walk from Temple Meads train station.

Visited the 21st August 2016 - nice pub on a peaceful area between train station and Moor Brewery. Good beer selection especially on bottle with some treasure. Staff is friendly and ambiance is pretty nice. Good value place. Food looks nice, I didn’t try it. Highly recommended. There is a small patio inside.
The pub is just 10 minutes walk from the centre of Bristol and not far from the Moor Brewery Tap. Absolutely packed on a Friday afternoon, lots of office workers enjoying an extended lunch break. The food was excellent and the beer choice pretty decent. A cracking boozer and well worth the walk.
A solid boozer in a pleasant residential area. Lovely interior, with a well appointed patio area out back. Good range of beers on cask, plus a very impressive bottle selection. Obviously a small emphasis on Bristol Beer Factory beers. Friendly staff. Wifi. Good value.
This pub is just a few minutes away from The Moor Brewery taproom, so it’s well worth it to take the two in on one visit (keeping in mind that Moor is only en Thursday through Saturday).

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 that’s been given a makeover inside. It’s 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 Factory’s own brews and some well chosen guests.
