Recently under new management and cleaned throughout you cant beat it as a small cosy village pub with loads of character. Plenty of good beers and lagers all served by nice staff and comfortable seating, well worth a visit.

Hi, yes, I agree with the other person who has answered your question! There is also The Grouse and Claret at Rowsley, a couple of miles away, but Barringtons is more convenient to this area and the rooms are nice.
