The Barrow House is a pub in idyllic Egerton, a village known for its thriving community spirit as much as its magnificent views across the Weald of Kent, picturesque cottages and local history.
Previously known as The George, the inn was originally built in 1576 using timbers from sailing ships and traditional cob and straw plaster, which still remain behind the 17th century timber frame, weatherboards and Kent peg tiles.
The pub has important history from the last century too as the local of choice for Canadian and American squadrons based at nearby airfields during the Second World War. The signatures of these pilots can be found in the bar, alongside cask ales from Kentish breweries, great beer and wide selection of wines by the glass.
We’re open seven days a week, for everything from coffee in the morning, a few pints after work or drinks after dinner to tasty bar snacks, perfect pub lunches and delicious roasts on Sunday.
We’re passionate about flavour and quality and believe that great seasonal ingredients deserve respect. Our handcrafted burgers are made in house, our bread is baked daily and everything from our kitchen is prepared from scratch and freshly cooked.
Whether you fancy a quick snack, a light lunch or dinner with friends and family, there’s something for everyone on our menu, from traditional pub classics, soups and sandwiches to more adventurous smoking flavours, chargrilled treats and tempting puds.
We accept online bookings for parties of less than ten. If you’d like to book for a larger group, please drop us an email to check availability.
Our pub garden is the perfect place to while away the summer months, with magnificent views across the Weald of Kent. A smart sandstone terrace wraps around the 16th century building, leading onto a landscaped lawn, home to a children’s play area.
Why not tuck into a sourdough pizza, topped with local charcuterie, cheese, seasonal vegetables and fresh herbs? While everyone’s favourite summer treat is best accompanied best with a jug of Pimm’s or glass of rosé in the sun, our pizzas are available for takeaway too.
For those who want to spend more time in the village or explore the local area, there are three beautiful bedrooms upstairs all with luxurious en suite bathrooms and enormous beds to ensure the most comfortable overnight stay or relaxing weekend getaway.
We’ve used contemporary fabrics and restored furniture to give each room a distinct personality, but they share in common a feeling of space and light with large windows looking onto the village and valley.
