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

A must visit . Fab spot on the river and the pub has been really tastefully refurbished. Helpful and friendly staff but the food is the main attraction. Really interesting menu, perfectly executed and everyone thoroughly enjoyed their choice. Crabacado burger was a highlight. Fantastic choice of great wines and beers. Very welcoming atmosphere, we were a family group from... More

Went there twice in the past week just as it opened and we were impressed. The pub is much more than it used to be and is so much lighter and roomier. The food was good and a good selection of beers... They even have prosecco on tap ! It has lost some of its old charm and history but... More

Have been a number of times since it was recently re-vamped. They've done a great job, turning an extremely grotty, dingy pub, into an open, airy, smart venue. It has a great location, with river /tow path frontage on one side. Food is really good, try the pigeon salad and the cow pie. Lots of standard gastro pub choices (especially... More

Had lunch at City Barge last week and what delight. It was a lovely summers day and still managed to find a table next to the river. The food was amazing, the salmon with ginger dressing was amazing and the Sauvignon de Touraine was incredible value. It is rare to find such a decent pub on the river in London... More

I live locally to the City Barge and - now that it's been refurbished - go there on a frequent basis. Rob and his team are very friendly and immensely helpful; the food is WAY better than any standard pub fare and always freshly cooked. Last Saturday we hired the function room upstairs (the Harrowden Room) and 17 of us... More

I had a crab burger which was not very nice- my chips never came and they brought my wine after my food was finished. My boyfriend never got the sauces for his burger which he ordered straight away. It's a lovely river spot but it's understaffed and the service does not warrant the prices. I was given 20% off the... More

The City Barge used to have character. But the powers that be at the Metropolitan Pub Co., a Greene King subsidiary, decided that this Strand on the Green pub needed a makeover and now it looks like... well just about any other centrally designed "gastropub". Quite what is driving the mad urge to rip down walls, provide a widened serving-hatch... More
