The Barleycorn Inn
The centuries old Barleycorn Inn with rooms (extended in 1829) is perfectly located for all sorts of relaxation and more energetic pursuits and is well under an hour's drive from the beautiful cathedral cities of Salisbury and Winchester. For the adrenalin junkie there is Thruxton Motorsports Centre,while the mountain biker will love Tidworth Freeride Bike Park. For seekers of antiquity Stonehenge and Avebury World Heritage Sites are little more than a stone's throw away. The discerning shopper and culture vulture will love the nearby market towns of Marlborough and Devizes with many independant shops; Hungerford is a centre for antiques shops and features regularly on TV programmes. If bargain-hunting is the order of the day, you may like to try the Great Western Shopping outlet in Swindon. For walkers and cyclists there are numerous routes to take ‘to and from’ the Barleycorn and the family dog is welcome to join you both in the pub and for overnight stays. We are in the middle of the flat-racing world with gallops a mere trot away and both Newbury and Salisbury racecourses just a short drive. After your day's adventures there is the welcoming bar and Cwtch (Welsh for Cuddle) to restore the inner traveller, with super pub food and a good selection of beers and wines to tempt you. Ness, Andy, Eliot and their team look forward to welcoming you soon! See our Menus & Events page for more information and follow us on Facebook.
