Pub Layout

The Barley Mow is a two-storey, traditionally styled pub. Internally, there is a small public bar with a larger lounge both trading from a central servery. There is also a function room with a stage to the rear which can cater for approx.90 covers. The current operators have developed the catering kitchen, although more work is required by an ingoing operator. There is great potential to develop a quality food offering at this site, and making use of the large function room facility. Externally there is a large car park that wraps around the site, and there are a large garden and area for a marquee allowing a new operator to further develop the outside offering at this pub. The crown bowling green at the side, with clubhouse, is the home of Stapenhill Bowls Club and the eleven teams that are based there all use the pub regularly.

The new operator must be ready to embrace these as they are truly the heart of this pub. The successful applicant for the Barley Mow will need to have good knowledge of cask ales as these are a favourite here. The ability to market and develop the cask ale offer will only go to enhance trade. There is also potential to grow trade by developing a catering option to enhance the function room offer.
