Saw The Barge Inn on the Doggy Pubs website and expected it to be "quite nice", judging by the reviews generally. We were very pleasantly surprised though as it turned out to be much more than "quite nice". We had a good seat right on the canal-side and it helped that the sun was shining. There was a good varied... More

Stayed here at the end of June whilst travelling around the UK. Hadn't booked in advanced - just happened to hit upon Bradford-on-Avon and The Barge Inn due to not being able to find accommodation in nearby Bath. The Barge Inn had just received cancellation for their Tithe Room so we booked in. It was probably one of the hottest... More

I've only been to the Barge Inn once, but my experience was definitely a positive one. The place was not too crowded, and the large open air section added a nice bit of space. The food was lovely, if a little slow in arriving, and not too pricey. Overall definitely a place to be taken into consideration when looking for... More

We moored 2 nights on the canal opposite The Barge Inn. We ate dinner and Sunday roast in the pub. Both were good but the service was a little slow. On the Sunday we got there at noon but didn't get our food until 12.50pm. The pub was really busy and behind the bar the 2 guys pulling pints and... More

We have just returned from a really good four nights at the Barge Inn, where we were made very welcome. It is an old Inn, right on the canal in Bradford on Avon, about ½ mile from the town centre, with lovely walks along the canal in both directions, including a medieval tithe barn a few hundred yards away. There... More

The food was very good and plentiful but our timing was probably not the best since we were there on a bank holiday Monday. Consequently, service was quite slow. The food is served on pieces of slate which initially is interesting but later proves a bit inefficient. Best to try the place on a quieter day.

My husband and I rarely venture out to eat/drink and as there is now where decent in Trowbridge with a lovely garden and view we decided to head for the Barge. A Sunday mid afternoon, very busy, a garden developed over 3 layers, just beautiful. We were lucky enough to find an empty table on the top terrace feet away... More
