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

Went on Saturday, had a 14 quid fixed price meal - good value and they catered for a wheat free diet with alternatives and no hassle what so ever. I know there are a couple of recent reviews that suggest it is poor but we had exactly the opposite experience. Poor range of lager though ! house wine a tenner... More

Having previously left an excellent review 18months or so ago, sadly I have to admit that the Grain Barge has been cutting corners and it shows. The owners wife who runs the show is brash, fake and although tries hard to appear welcoming is not, but more disappointingly, the food, it now lacks flavour and is not up to the... More

Absolutely shocking experience. We booked a table for 14 people to celebrate my 30th birthday. Once we had all picked and ordered our food, the manger came out and told us that we could only have the set menu and if we did not agree to this we would have to leave. Unfortunately, due to there being 14 of us... More

We were going as a group - two of us arrived first and the table was pointed out to us, but weren't taken to our table as i would usually expect. We arrived at the allocated time - but not everyone was able to come - which was greeted with what i would describe as a look of despair from... More
