We are closed

Much as we would prefer to be able to support our community by remaining open, there are a number of challenges and risks associated with keeping our volunteers and customers virus-free. As such, we have opted to close Barnaby’s until further notice. We promise to be back just as soon as we feel it is safe to do so. This may take several weeks, but we will keep you posted here and on our Facebook page.

Meanwhile, we’d like to thank all the people who have done so much to help us remain open thus far. Stay safe everyone.


Gentlemen in Moscow

This Thursday, the Barnaby’s Book Club will meet in The Brickmakers at 7.30pm to review what we thought of ““Gentlemen in Moscow” by Amor Towles. The book tells the tale of the triumph of goodness over cruelty and hopefulness over despair by painting vibrant picture of Soviet history from 1922 to 1954.

As an end-of-year celebration, we’re having dinner together in The Brickmakers too. You are very welcome to join us! If you like books, beer, wine or food, then let us know you are coming at facebook.com/barnabysbookclub. We look forward to seeing you.

All The Light We Can Not See

This Thursday, the Barnaby’s Book Club will meet in the Brickmakers Pub in Swanmore to discuss what they thought of “All The Light We Can Not See” by Anthony Doerr – a book that won the 2015 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction and the 2015 Andrew Carnegie Medal for Excellence in Fiction.

Interested? Please just turn up at 7.30pm on Thursday and enjoy the conversation!
