Really lovely night away at The Barge Inn in Bradford on Avon, Wiltshire. We felt very welcome, the room spotless, the bed comfy, and the food delicious. Really recommend this lovely pub by the Kennet and Avon Canal.

This was booked for us by friends and what a good choice. The pub is very popular and stands on the bank of the Avon Canal. You can just sit and watch the world go bye with your favourite tipple. We were allocated the Lock Room, this was clean and tidy. Had all the required standards for a room costing... More

Saptayed here for a night away whilst going to Bath. Lovely old fashioned feel to the pub, nice selection of alcohol too. The room we stayed in was a tad small (made the dog friendly room) but was well decorated and a great bathroom. The staff really were friendly and the breakfast was delicious. Would love to visit on a... More

After driving for 4 hours and then trying to find somewhere to stay, after being let down by another place, we happened upon the Barge Inn and are glad we did. From the moment we went in to when we left we were welcomed, by I believe the owners daughter Sarah, and looked after by all the staff. The rooms... More

We came before (in 2011) for a meal and were very impressed, so we decided to come back when passing on our narrow boat holiday. However we were told when we went to the bar to order that they do not serve starters in the garden, only main meals. I assume this is because in the past they have mixed... More

I stayed here this week for work, only 20 minutes from Trowbridge, where I needed to be the next day and about 30 minutes from Bath. Bradford on Avon is a very pretty stone built town and the Barge Inn is on the edge of the town in a canal side location a short walk from the centre of the... More

Promised much but delivered less, which is always the wrong way round ... Starters seemed ok, but my fishcakes from the specials board were mostly potato, with some chewy pieces of haddock in. Fellow diners reported a lack of flavour in their meals.

We stayed at The Barge Inn from Saturday 11 July to Monday 13 July 2015. Set in lovely gardens and a canal side location,it wasa lovely setting for our stay. We were booked into the Tithe Room, and had arranged for an extra bed in the room, rather than paying for a separate room, which worked out as better value.... More

Nice venue, have been several times before and never been disappointed. However, on this visit I was half way through the steak pie when I pulled what can only be descibed as a piece of metal out of my mouth, luckily before swallowing. It looked like a cable tie minus the plastic casing so pretty nasty stuff. Notified the waitress... More
