The Shah has been added to the pub crawl through Barley.

Why not go back 100 years, and while walking through Barley stop and be greeted by Benjamin Bullen of the Shah, Nathan Chapman of the King William IV, Alfred Stanley Oxley of the Fox and Hounds, and William George Saggs of the Waggon and Horses. A quick detour down Church End will find John Dilly ready to welcome you at the Three Crowns, while continuing along the London road you will find William West at the Woolpack, followed by James Chuck at the Chequers. If you are still thirsty you might backtrack to Smith's End to enjoy the company of Jacob Hayes at the Hoops.

If you visit Barley today you will only find the Chequers  and the Fox and Hounds - although it is actually in the old Waggon and Horses after the real Fox and Hounds burnt down.
