This pub was rebuilt in its current form in 1930. ** The Era has the two entries below for a pub called “The Barley Mow”, with an address of “Romney Terrace”. I am pretty certain this is the same pub, as Greenwood’s map of 1830 shows Romney Terrace as a row of buildings on the north side of Horseferry Road, exactly where the pub is today. *

What I am now attempting to achieve is the coverage of an earlier London
street directory in 1832. This is unique, plus
images of the 1842 Robsons directory which confirm earlier entries and also
carry much more trade detail about a premises or person. Here is the index of streets in 1832, many with
1842 imagery added.
And next is the complete 1940 London street directory - this will take some months to complete, so bear with me!
