Our wonderful inn
in Wimborne, Dorest
The lovely old English pub, THE BARLEY MOW is managed by Ken and Naili, whose experience in the pub trade exceeds twenty years.
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.
