Excellent landmark oriental restaurant and real ale bar

A converted Dutch barge on the River Nene close to the town centre with a real ale bar on the lower deck called Charters featuring Oakham Ales Asian restaurant called East on the upper deck with good food and excellent service at affordable prices. Strongly recommended.

Midweek lunch for two, £30 including drinks. Food was nice, presentation ie plates all marked and scratched. Dried lime and wilting salad and garnishes. Only ones in restaurant. Lovely waitress but over priced, poor delivery, dirty glasses (wine) Much improvement needed

This is usually my top place for eating out & I have rated it so in the past and been many times. However we went here for Mothers Day. We had the buffet & although it was better than other oriental buffets it wasn't up to their usual standard I didn't think. But also we had my 2 year old... More

In a lovely setting on an old boat (sounds strange, but it's not) East is simply a very very good restaurant. A huge menu and everything that we saw come out of the kitchen looked fantastic. The restaurant was full but the staff never missed a beat and we were well looked after. Tempura prawns, squid, sambal pork belly and... More

This is a barge on the river quite central to the city centre and with free parking. The barge is quite large and nicely fitted. The restaurant is on the top and there is a bar below called Charters. Obviously on a February evening it was dark and chilly but I can imagine that in the summer it would be... More

Had a fantastic meal here and Chinese/Thai food is actually my least favourite. It was a great menu for valentines night and the place was fully booked. Also recommend downstairs for a drink after.

This place never disappoints. Serves authentic Thai food and those that can't take the heat and spice they will cater the dish to your taste so you have a pleasant meal. Staff always professional. Always a real treat to come here.
