Situated by the Thames in the very characterful Strand on the Green, the City Barge does good food in an interesting building. Starters of grilled peach with cheese and of heritage tomato salad were very pleasing. Mains of blackened cod in miso and of confit rabbit were delicious and generous in portion. Excellent service. Recommended.

Would definitely recommend a stop here for dinner if you are in the area. Gorgeously furbished restaurant, comfortable and friendly. Food at your usual London prices, but it was delicious and filling, so you don't feel hard done by. We had one of the cheaper wines at £20, but it was absolutely drinkable. I had the prawns with a yummy... More

The refurb makes the City Barge a lovely venue and my girlfriend's food was very good. However you cannot charge £17.50 for a small dressed crab which we sent back then £19.50 for overlooked prawns. The venue is superb but J Sheekey or Bentley's you are not so don't charge the premium for sub standard dishes.

I don't normally take the time to write reviews but I have to acknowledge what was one of the best evenings I've had out for a very long time. The refurbishment of the City Barge and its new managers are a breath of fresh air. Along with their excellent staff, they provided a very warm and reassuring welcome and a... More

As much as we loved the barge before, the renovation has made it spacious, welcoming and beautiful! The food was absolutely delicious, with the ribeye steak cooked exactly as I had asked. We came here for a birthday celebration about a month ago and had a fantastic time. The staff here are one of a kind; attentive, friendly, and had... More

There are three pubs/bistros on the north bank of the Thames at Strand on the Green bad the City Barge had always been the 'cosiest'. More of a local pub thank a slick chain operation it was always comfortable but you felt needed a little something. Well, it's had it. A great makeover has opened the previous space up making...

Attentive staff, great ales and amazing food! Choose from tasty dishes including duck, foie gras or prawn starters; rabbit, monkfish or the incredible soft shelled crab burger! Very keenly priced and a wonderful location by the river Go Go GO!

Lovely spot on the river. Beautifully renovated. Fantastic menu and very good food. Charming staff (they are clearly quite picky about their staff and like to secure 'the good ones'). The manager in particular was watchful of his team while being a perfectly charming host. Definitely go - preferably for lunch on the riverside.

We went in for lunch on Sunday and I was told the place used to be a bit of a dive. They really have done a good job of the refurbishment. The menu was a good size but we opted for the roasts which were good, three of us had beef, but there was also chicken or pork, all for... More
