The Village Pub

BARNSLEY, Cirencester, GL7 5EF

Surprising perhaps to find a Barnsley in the Cotswolds, although this one is far older than its Yorkshire namesake. The interior is warmly furnished and decorated, as befits the flagstones, oak floorboards, exposed timbers and open fireplaces. Also contributing to its appeal is a contemporary approach to English pub food, holder of an AA Rosette, with regularly-changing, largely locally-sourced menus. Vegetables, for example, come from 17th-century Barnsley House. Starters include Butts Farm Old Spots pork pie with home-made piccalilli; and Cornish scallops with quinoa, chorizo, capers and herb salad. Main course choices might include braised brisket with red cabbage and dauphinoise potato; whole Cotswold chicken, roast new potatoes, rosemary and bacon; and smoked haddock fishcakes, spinach and lemon butter sauce. A Welsh rarebit fritter bar snack goes well with a pint of Hooky bitter, an Ashton Press cider or one of the 10 wines by the glass.
