We have been visiting the Grain Barge regularly for a couple of years sometimes taking large family parties to it. Recently we have noted that the quality of the food has gone downhill. At our last visit we were 10 minutes late (due to a late taxi and an accident on our route) and told that our table had been... More

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

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.

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.

visited early Saturday evening. Had a warm welcome and were shown to our table. The service throughout our visit was very good and attentive. No complaints there. 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
