If you’re into crop circles, The Barge Inn is the place to be. On Friday, Saturday (when there is live music) and Sunday it is crawling with eccentric people especially at the campsite.

Came here for some pub grub and didnt want to leave! The staff and customers are welcoming without being intrusive. The ambience was relaxed and comfortable. The food was a generous portion and decent 'pub grub', well priced. Will definitely be going back!!

We stopped here during our latest canal adventure. Food was lovely and owner was very welcoming. Crop circles and alien happenings are the main event. Brilliantly eccentric and truly worth a visit. An absolute one of a kind pub!

We've visited a few times for drinks, food and this occasion camping. Don't expect 5*, you will get good and quick food. Usual pub drinks plus some great alternatives😃 with average prices. Busy Friday and Saturday nights and the campsite is very friendly. Off ground fires are allowed with music and instruments😎

We have been to this pub before when it was a co operative and had some lovely food there and it was nice and clean. Under new ownership it has definitely gone downhill, it needs a good clean and the campsite needs a clear out. Food was okay and we would go back because of the location. Shame as it... More

So far I have only had drinks in this quirky pub, but despite it being 40 mins drive ( or half a day's cycle ) it is fast becoming a favourite. From the outside, at a distance you expect a typical canal side English county pub, but as you get closer things are not quite as they seem. The pub... More

Quirky pub - but a great place to shelter and have dinner on a rather damp and cold Easter evening! Bar staff very helpful and homemade vegetarian lasagne was great, and good value.

Having read other reviews, I have to say that the one prior to this really sums up the whole situation here, and is a first class article. A lovely old building, good beers on offer, including the 'green' one, and a perfectly good menu. The staff just do not appear to be trained and food orders were sometimes incorrect or... More

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 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
