About us

A few words

about our wonderful inn

The lovely old English pub, THE BARLEY MOW is now under new management.

KEN and NAILI, whose experience in the pub trade exceeds twenty years are delighted to be back in the Colehill Wimborne area managing such an attractive venue.

Oliver Cromwell passed this way with his army on their trek to knock seven bells out of Corfe Castle some little time ago. The nearby Gods Blessing Lane is said to be where his troops were blessed before the battle.

Who knows,some of his lads may have popped into THE BARLEY MOW for a pub lunch and a pint or two before the fracas.
The new management are not sure on this point – they weren’t here then !

In later times part of the pub was the little village school. Hence the cartoon in the saloon referring to the Old School “Thai”.

The pub grounds are extensive with large secluded decking and grassed areas. Ideal safe places for children and families to enjoy the Summer sunshine whilst dining.

Special events will be arranged during the “good weather” months.
Music, steam engines,hog roasts etc. all in the attractive surrounding grounds.

Ample parking is available.

Well behaved dogs and owners are always welcome in the public bar and ramblers and cyclists — welcome everywhere.

KEN and NAILI and staff extend a very warm welcome to all and look forward to ensuring that your visits to THE BARLEY MOW result in happy feelings of joy and contentment for you your family and your guests.

Opening times:
Monday-Friday: 12pm – 3pm & 5pm – 11pm
