Our superb menu offers traditional pub food and seasonal dishes that cater for the whole family. The Barley Mow is a storybook pub nestled in the picturesque little village and civil parish of Clifton Hampden, just over 3 miles east of Abingdon, Oxfordshire. Originally a farming community, the area rests peacefully on the north bank of the River Thames. The river’s pathway is filled with 17th century thatched cottages and the sweet scent of honeysuckle. Famous English writer, Jerome K. Jerome, depicted this part of the River Thames area beautifully in his classic 1889 book Three Men in a Boat as “the wonderfully pretty village, old fashioned, peaceful and dainty with flowers.” In Anglo Saxon times Clifton Hampden was known as ‘tun on a cliff’ (town on a cliff), a name allegedly given because of the rock face that stands above the rest of the village. Perched on the top of this cliff, just 5 minutes from the Barley Mow pub, is the historic Church of St Michael & All Angels, a chapel of the Dorchester parish until the 19th century.”
