Quite a small pub but people inside were friendly and included us in their weekly event of 'Play your Cards Right' Cider was lovely! Bar staff could have been more amenable to outsiders. Served it's purpose but would probably not go again.

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.
