Surprised

Visited The Grain Barge, unsure what to expect. The set menu was really good, food was so fresh, tasty and good portions. The food did come out a little too quick, would of preferred it a bit slower. The decor is a little shabby but atmosphere is nice.

My wife wanted to go for her birthday as it had been years since her last visit. With it being a Monday, we didn't expect it busy. Very friendly staff seated us and were quick off the blocks taking orders for food and drink. Decided on the set menu and didn't have to wait long before it hit the table.... More

An unusual location and very interesting. We enjoyed the food and the staff were just so helpful. They adapted the menu to suit us and produced a really great meal. House wine was ok and nothing too much trouble even though they were busy.

Our first two choices of wine were not available due to supply issues. My partner wanted fish main course and was told the grilled fish was sea bass. Was informed 5 minutes later... More

We booked for a table for 8 for my son's 18th birthday and had a great night. The service slipped up a few times but generally very good. The starters and the duck were amazing, the main courses not quite so good but a really good night. We were treated to a free shared dessert (with birthday candles) which was... More
