The John Barleycorn
The John Barleycorn is situated at Goring on Thames in stunning Oxfordshire countryside and witihin a short walk of The River Thames. A warm and friendly welcome is waiting for all that visit us.
The John Barleycorn's first recorded use as an 'ale house' was in 1810. It is thought that the railway workers building the line through Goring were its first bunch of regulars. The building itself dates from the 17th Century. Formerly 3 cottages knocked into one building, it has customary original oak beams, low ceilings and uneven floors! There are two bars, a public bar with a real fireplace for a warmer in the winter months, also a lounge bar with its own entrance and is situated next to the restaurant where customers can enjoy a pre-dinner drink if they so choose.
The bar itself is cosy and serves real ales, draught lager and cider and is complemented with a good selection of wines and spirits. For those who like to eat outside there is an enclosed beer garden with benches. Situated upstairs there is a meeting room that can cater for parties of up to 18.
