Although we have visited Peterborough regularly we had never eaten at this restaurant before but decided to do so on a friends recommendation and we are so glad we did. The barge is well located on the riverside with steps down to it. It is cosy and intimate in a lovely setting.and nicely decorated. It is lovely watching all the... More

I went on Friday night with my partner and friends. We turned up at 9.30pm and were seated with no problems and they didn't seem to mind us turning up so late. The waitress was very friendly. We had the set menu and the food was delicious, hot and there was lots of it. Really enjoyed The Grain Barge and... More

The staff here are friendly and cheerful. The food whilst nice was not exceptional. We shared the mixed starter, of which the prawn toast & crispy wonton were slightly over cooked. The duck & pancakes were good as was the chicken on black bean sauce. The salt & pepper ribs where not particularly salt & peppery but coated in batter.... More

We have now visited the Grain Barge on several occasions. The staff are always very attentive and listen to our requirements. The food is excellent and served in just the right portions.

My husband & I visited the grain barge by chance on a recent night out at the Key theatre. The staff are very attentive and there were plenty of staff on duty. The food was very nice and the price was reasonable. The only thing I could fault was the flat coke drink we had each, obviously just poured strait... More

My wife and I were looking for somewhere different to go, and when we got there we were delighted with the decor, with the service and above all, the delicious food. We were attended to courteously, we weren't rushed, and all in all we had an excellent evening.

One of the best Chinese cuisines I've visited with amazing food and presented in a very traditional way, would definitely recommend it to anyone who likes Chinese food! Only downside to it is that the interior was very dated and felt a bit dirty and damp! But none the less please visit!

We used to visit this place a lot many years ago but moved a little further away so not been lately. Decided to try it again to celebrate a friends birthday and was delighted that it was still just as good as before. The service is excellent and the food still as varied and good. Set meal was chosen but... More

The Grain Barge has been on the River Nene for as long as I can remember, and we have visited a few times, not many though as we have always felt we have been rushed. However last night was totally different we had booked a table for 7 and we sat downstairs (Lower deck) which had a totally different atmosphere... More

The parking for this place is a doddle. Head for the car park by the Key Theatre and you are literally a stone's throw away from the riverside. The Grain Barge sits near the bridge and is brightly lit in a warm welcoming way. We went here for my 50th birthday meal. There was 4 of us with 2 adults... More
