Visited East on Sunday 22nd June for a family get together after having our reservation at Embe cancelled on the day (they were running a stall in Peterborough Cathedral Grounds instead) so we were grateful that there was plenty of space to accommodate us. However I must confess that I was disappointed at the choice of food on offer for... More

Great selection of freshly cooked, interesting dishes offering great variety. This isn't a cheap 'pile it high for a fiver', but it is an excellent standard of food, present well. Perfect for families. Excellent service too. After lunch we had drink in beer garden, where there was a band and plenty of room for kids to run around safely. Highly... More

I have eaten here before, on many occasions, and every time I have enjoyed what I have eaten. This was no exception. Really nice waiting staff, very friendly & always with a smile. Food was as good as it can be in my opinion, served piping hot and tasting wonderful. The three of us ate everything, plates were all empty... More

We have been here a few times now and the food is absolutely beautiful. The food tastes clean, fresh and leaves you wanting more. The only thing that really did me was the fact that the service charge was automatically added and I did not notice this until I was going through my receipts the other day. And the joke... More

Atmosphere was ok and at least some scenery out over the water. Food tasted good. Overall value was fine. I would have rated it 4 starts but as the tip was automatically added then in my view their pricing is dishonest. The tip can be taken off as written on the menu but a tip should be purely discretionary and... More

East was one of those restaurants you often forget is there; having returned for a number of visits last year, which we mostly enjoyed, we decided to try again for a night out with friends. Having a young daughter nights out are a premium. Upon having an extremely bad evening we are driven to write our first ever review of... More

I have eaten at the East a number of times now and am really surprised by how good the food is. The selection is from a number of Eastern countries and all of the ones I have tried so far have been wonderful. The setting is quite unusual, a barge on a river, with the top deck housing the East... More
