The Barley Mow - A sustainable rebirth in the heart of Mayfair

Since launching our retrofit programme in 2020, over 360 offices, shops, and homes have been transformed to optimise energy efficiency including The Barley Mow on 82 Duke Street

Since 2020 an additional 250,000 sq. ft. of space has been refurbished, rather than being demolished, to save carbon. This includes the delivery of Grosvenor’s first net zero carbon office building, Holbein Gardens, and the transformation of Newson’s Yards, to create a new design industry destination in Belgravia from a former timber yard and significant refurbishments of The Barley Mow and The Audley, two grade II listed pubs in Mayfair.

The Barley Mow opened in 2023, the height of the energy inflation, the Cubitt Group made a decision before fitting out the kitchen that it would be gasless, the first ever electric kitchen for the group. This decision has improved the sustainability of their establishment and also save costs.

George Dean, General Manager of the Barley Mow, a Cubitt House pub, shares: “We worked closely with Grosvenor to redevelop the Barley Mow, while keeping its 1800s character. We knew from the start that we were going to have a gas-less kitchen, which we had never done before; but it’s been a massive positive for us. We now have the most sustainable kitchen across Cubitt House’s pubs; it’s cost-efficient, provides a safer environment for our chefs, and in the long run, creates a more sustainable workplace. We are looking to expand our use of gas-less cooking in the future.”
