Barrie & Jenkins was a small British publishing house that was formed in 1964 from the merger of the companies Herbert Jenkins (founded by English writer Herbert George Jenkins) and Barrie & Rockliff. One of their most notable authors was P. G. Wodehouse, whose titles came from the Herbert Jenkins portfolio of writers.

The company had a short commercial history and was taken over by Hutchinson, who were themselves taken over by Century and then by Random House (now owned by Bertelsmann).

Barrie & Jenkins continues to exist as a specialist imprint mainly for hardback editions within the Random House stable.
