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

An excellent country pub, with a lovely garden and right next to the canal. Amazing delicious food, reasonably priced and very quick service :-) very friendly staff. Will definitely be back for another visit in the very near future. Tanya and Martin

We had heard some great things about the Barge from friends and decided to book a table for my mums birthday. We had a fantastic time. The food was delicious and lots of good choices for vegetarians. Nice to see a restaurant actually with consideration for veggies. The staff were delightful they couldn't have done more to ensure we were... More

The Barge in Bradford on Avon is a real gem. Fantastic food that's not over priced and a great selection of beers/ciders on tap. Always offered a warm welcome on arrival and the staff are always attentive. The beer garden was fantastic on such a Sunny day but I equally loved the bar area which was more than easy to... More

Having read some of these reviews I was dubious about visiting, however I was astounded when I came here! The bar staff were incredibly friendly and welcoming when we first arrived, we got our drinks swiftly and headed to the garden. Before we went to the garden we were told there was a fair wait on food, but going to... More

Staying at this inn is a wonderful experience. We just came back from a great time, our room was comfortable and spacious. It was over the bar so a certain amount of noise was to be expected but all was quiet by 23.15ish. Unless you are an 'early to bedder' this shouldn't cause a problem. The breakfast at The Barge...

lovely place, wasn't welcomed with a particularly warm welcome ( not a single smile from the barmaid), breakfast was really nice & so was the room ( shame the shower didn't work properly ) Really nice watching the barges go by & feeding the ducks, the locals are lovely & friendly. All in all a nice place to stay, just... More
