I was born and grew up in Surrey. I spent the last 30 years on the Isle of Wight where I ran several businesses including my own Bar and Restaurant, Coffee Shop and Tea Rooms. I already had a passion for food and learnt from my husband, a fully trained chef, how to produce amazing dishes and successful menus which we became known for.
Coming back to Surrey and running the Barley Mow has been a wonderful extension of my life in the hospitality business and I am very proud of what my team and I have achieved in the last year.
I started my working life in reception and accounts at my family’s Car Repair Business and stayed within that area for over 20 years, working up to logistics manager at Honda Motor, Europe. Whilst staying with Deb one summer, I got roped into helping out at her Bar and Restaurant...
That was 5 years ago, and the rest, as they say, is history!
Dinner service is headed by Deborah or Kim, with Josh, Grace and Zach pulling your choice of cask ale or serving a bottle of carefully chosen wine from the extensive wine list.
Adrienne, Chantal and Hennue serve your lunch time drinks and food orders with a friendly smile and chat.
We have three fully trained and qualified chefs in the kitchen. They all bring their own slant to our traditional menu, producing a spectacular contemporary twist to the choice of food for our customers.
