Great spot but very poor servcie

A great location alongside the Kennet and Avon canal, this is a substantial and traditional looking pub with a good sized beer garden and a more modern, timber clad extension to one side. It featured on the television a couple of years back when it had closed and was bought by the local villagers... read more

It featured on the television a couple of years back when it had closed and was bought by the local villagers as a co-operative venture. Service at... More

The Barge has a captive audience of walkers cyclists and boaters, as there isn't another pub for miles! For anyone else my advice is -don't bother! The place was dingy and looked like it hadn't been cleaned for weeks, the food portions were stingy and poorly presented, and the whole atmosphere was one of half-hearted amateurism. This is an example... More

A lovely Sunday lunch with friends. I enjoyed a superbly prepared ham, egg and chips. Excellent ham and perfectly fried eggs. My wife enjoyed a classic roast beef lunch with perfectly cooked vegetables and delicious gravy.. very generous portions. The Barge is a free house with an impressive range of beers. I look forward to returning again.

Always a pleasure to stop off here for a pint. Relaxed and authentic atmosphere with none of the gastropub pretensions. Murals of local sites and crop circle designs add to interest. Lovely setting beside Kennet & Avon canal and a good waypoint for a circular walk via Alton Barnes up over the downs or a good place to put in... More

Dropped in for a light lunch after a long muddy walk along the canal. We were made very welcome and our dog was too. Lovely atmospheric bar area. We had home made soup and it was delicious. Will be going back for a proper meal soon.

What a great place for a relaxed and chilled dining experience with great ale and cider to with your meal. Particularly recommended cider 'Away with the Fairies'! Visited here on a canal boat holiday in the school holidays and almost stayed here for the duration... Food well recommended - good quality, choice and speed of service. Beer and cider also... More

Called in here when I was working away and stopping in the area on my own, was made to feel welcome and had a great meal (menu is pub food as others have said but it is good pub food freshly cooked). The locals are welcoming even if they do have more than their fair share of characters who seemed... More

This place is situated on the Canal and ideal for stop off for a pint trundling up and down in a boat/barge. Seating inside and out and a good view. The bar staff are friendly and welcoming at the back there is a TV and Pool Table. Clientele is eclectic and mainly locals. We had an early dinner. Menu is... More

Called in to The Barge on the first and last days of our canal holiday. The service was very good and the food was, for the price, quite acceptable although not outstanding. This beers are excellent and there is a friendly and rustic feeling to the place. If you want comfort and sophistication then this is probably not the place... More
