Had the chicken fingers and fries, it was around $15.00. Chicken fingers were good, but I expected more from the very bland, boring french fries. Expensive meal considering I only ate the chicken fingers.

If you are going for food here look somewhere else. Expensive menu for low quality food. Wouldn't go there again.

Not bad food here but the servers at usually chatting with each other at the bar and table service is slow. You can hear their adult chats throughout the restaurant with the bar staff. If more attention was paid to the customer they would do better

went to the Barley Mow with work colleagues after a long day - table service was prompt and friendly, drinks served quickly. quite a big menu but plenty to choose from. Extensive drinks menu too. Burgers were really good (washed down with a couple of beers!)

Good place for patio beverages. Serves decent pub fare. The interior is very worn out and in dire need of a rennovation.

I popped in here on a Friday evening with a few friends with the intent on getting a quick drink in a local pub. I decided to indulge in a few of the menu items and was pleasant surprised by the size of the portions. I stuck to traditional poutine, which was fine while my partner indulged in some large...

Mistakes were made with the order and we waited forever for my partners 'Hangover' meal with gravy, forever.. They took it off the bill thankfully and helped raise his mood. We shared the first dish with hollandaise and took half of the second dish home. The food was delicious and reasonably priced for a large serving. We've frequented the barley... More

The new Barley Mow in Westboro............met my husband there for lunch yesterday. The $10.00 burger deal is pretty decent, though charging an extra $1.00 for a small "house" salad was rather annoying, considering it consisted mostly of ice berg lettuce. My bone of contention is the number of pubs and restaurants that short pour their "pints." A bit of foam... More
