The Barley Mow at Clifton Hampden has hardly changed from the photograph below taken in 1890. A later photograph of 1901 shows a new wing added at right angles to the 14th century building. Jerome K. Jerome calls it 'without exception the quaintest most old-fashioned inn up the river,' evidence it was regarded as a picturesque inn even in the late 19th century.
In the 21st century the Barley Mow is a Chef and Brewer pub and has been amalgamated into a 'new' wing, so from the inside the division is less obvious. Despite this it is a lovely pub and deserves a visit. The gardens are pleasant too, apart from the busy road that now cuts close to the pub's corner.
