Very good food we went for the recommended meal for 2 and as there were 4 of us we had the two meals for 2 on offer, so a wide selection of dishes and plenty of it. Very prompt service from friendly staff, would recommend if going to Peterborough

We visited this restaurant on our visit to Peterborough this week-end on recommendation from our hotel and we were not disappointed. We had the set menu for 2 which at £14.95 per head is not over-priced and the food that is served is cooked and presented perfectly and there seems to be no end of it arriving at your table.... More

I visited the Grain Barge last Friday night. We arrived about 2100 hours with no prior booking. We ordered the set menu at £14.95 per person. The food just kept coming to the point where my partner kept asking me if there was more, to which I replied "yes"! LOL. Every selection that arrived at our table was excellent. We... More

Loads of us from work came here for a Christmas party. Because some people were running late the people who were there weren't allowed to eat we didn't eat until midnight. We were shoved at the bottom of the boat right next to the kitchen basically in it. No windows at all. It was a set menu no choice in... More

Five of us went to the Grain barge for my Daughters 18 Birthday meal. The waitresses were fabulous, so helpful. So attentive and lots of fun to. When the huge plate of mixed starters came out our eyes lit up, our taste buds did the same soon after. Each course, each dish, was perfect. I can't say more than "... More

Took my youngest daughter because we were staying overnight in Peterborough. I've been a few times previously. We were both knocked out by the hospitality but the quality of the food was stunning !!

I enjoyed the £25 per head Gourmet Seafood set meal but were saddened this long standing Peterborough restaurnant has been left to fall into disrepair. From the outside on the river bank the boat looks shabby and inside there are holes in the carpet and it all looks like it hasn't had a penny spent on it in 20 years.... More
