What is a gastropub?

A gastropub is a combination of “gastro” (short for gastronomy or relating to food) and “pub” (short for public house or drinking tavern). In simple terms, a gastropub is a place with a warm, inviting atmosphere that places emphasis on sophisticated, yet approachable food. An extensive craft beer list is integral to our concept.

What’s our philosophy on food?

We make it our mission to serve food that is great without being expensive or pretentious. We want our food to be approachable, but also exciting. Most importantly, we want you to feel comfortable trying new things with us like the Welsh Rarebit (which Stu Helm, of Ashvegas, loved so much!) or Mulligatawny Shepherd’s Pie, both Barleycorn takes on classic pub dishes.
