We went in for an evening beer and were a bit disappointed. It was meant to be a free house but only had two ales from the same brewery. So not much choice. The whole bar is dominated by three TVs showing football, tennis and...More

This is a pleasant pub that is both friendly and relaxing suitable for dogs. Great name and have made collectable T-Shirts about the pub.

Step back in time and enjoy this hostility without prejudice, where locals and grottoes collide. The on tap local beer and cider shouldn’t be missed.

Quaint little freehold pub. Food was good. Beer was good. What's not to like. When you are in a town called Beer how can you go past a pub called Barrel O' Beer.

After a hot walk we fancied a cool drink in Beer. The pub offered 2 real ales from the St Austell brewery, my choice The Proper Job was good. However, inside the pub is dominated by 2 large TV'S. This spoilt the experience for us.

Perfect drinking pub with sport on tap. Great, friendly service and a good atmosphere. Food, though basic, is perfect for the pub.

Under new management. Formerly known as Barrel O Beer & The Seafood Platter. Now its reverted back to a pleasant traditional village pub with excellent ale and lager, darts board and 3 televisions that you can sit and watch a good footy match. Also good food available from 12:00pm till 14:30pm and then again 18:00pm till 20:30pm. Dogs are welcome in the pub at any time. Change in license will be happening soon, so the pub will be staying open for longer. BARREL OF BEER IS NOW OPEN 11AM TILL MIDNIGHT sun-thurs & 11am till 1am fri-sat.
