Visited the pub after attending Bonsall open garden weekend. We sat outside the pub and had a real ale. There is a choice of real ales and the bar staff were friendly. Will definitely be returning.

The Barley Mow is a lively and eccentric Free House located in the beautiful village of Bonsall. Famous for the 'World Championship Hen Races', and for being the most likely place to be abducted by aliens according to UFO magazine ! Fine food, great ale & one of the best live music venues in the area !
