Not to be mistaken for its younger Yorkshire namesake, Barnsley is one the prettiest chocolate box villages in the Cotswolds and its only pub is as smart and well-mannered as the locals. Part of the Calcot Collection, its 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 Dinner Award, with regularly-changing, largely locally-sourced menus. Vegetables, for example, come from 17th-century Barnsley House across the road. Starters include beef brisket and smoked bacon terrine, seasonal slaw and granary toast; or spiced pumpkin tart, feta, rocket salad, lime and almond dressing. Main course choices might include roasted venison haunch, braised potatoes, cavalo nero, chestnut and celeriac purée; or cod fillet with pink grapefruit, chard, crushed new potatoes, fennel and citrus dressing. Desserts deliver plenty of enjoyment in the shape of banoffee bread and butter pudding with vanilla ice cream or custard; or chocolate nemesis with fruit and nut ice cream, perhaps accompanied by one of several sweet and fortified wines. A carefully curated board of British cheeses might include Cotswold-made Simon Weaver Brie or award-winning Perl Las blue cheese from Wales. Bar snacks of quail and black pudding Scotch eggs or onion bhaji and pickle go well with a pint of North Cotswold Shagweaver or Mortimers Orchard cider, or perhaps one of the 16 wines served by the glass from a concise but interesting list.
