Following an extensive refurbishment this historic 14th century public house is due to open in late May. The City Barge will be the perfect Thames side pub featuring a stunning dining room and bar, large open kitchen, all overlooking the river. The interior will retain much of the original architectural detail and period fixtures and fittings as well as three open fires. The menu will focus on seasonal British ingredients as well as hand pulled local ales and ciders. The City Barge will be open daily from midday for lunch and from 10am at weekends for breakfast and brunch

I came here the other evening for some drinks with friends. We sat in the upper area, and enjoyed a lovely bottle of wine served by a friendly bunch of bar staff. We made our way through the wine, and we were seeing lots of food coming out, it all looked fab! We couldn't resist. I had the burger and... More

My sister who, until recently lived in Chiswick, recommended this pub/restaurant. We were lucky that we chose a glorious sunny lunchtime to visit and sat outside over-looking the river. My sister and I had fish and chips, the posh version ;) and our colleague had the burger. Three very clean plates were all that was left. The food was really... More

We have been locals for a long time and have watched The City Barge's fortunes ebb and flow over the years. Fortunately the pub is back at the top of its game and is a delight to visit. The staff are attentive and welcoming and the manager listens to (and actions) customer suggestions. Our favourite dishes are the cured salmon... More

After reading many wonderful reviews we finally got the chance to stroll down to the city barge Saturday just gone - all I can say is this place rocks! We turned up just after high tide the place was packed, riverside full, lounge full, terrace full, restaurant full - panic struck as we didn't think we were be able to... More

Oh, how I hate to say it, but our lovely new pub seems to be going off the boil. It remains a fantastic spot for a pint by the river, but the fine dining bit isn't really working. The last couple of times we have been, the service has been distinctly ropey. It is also noticeable how quiet the dining... More

The City Barge is one of those places you go to when you want a perfect experience in a one off location. I have been many times now and every time the service is spot on. Food innovative and beautifully put together, pub clean and full of life and atmosphere. This gem is place where the team deserve every success.

Really like this place. Really good service, even better food, great wine list, great real ale selection and all in a really interesting River Thames setting. The only reason it didn't score higher is they need to do something about all the smokers congregating around the steps to the rear entrance down onto the river footpath. Ban all smokers from...

I celebrated my birthday with a few friends and family from the North. I wanted to show off a little about how London is not all hustle and bustle so I picked the Barge for the gathering of my nearest and dearest plus my pet Neil. Like FedEx the Barge never fails to deliver. Despite the pub clearly being very... More
