We booked this restaurant for 29th December for 11 people, driving 1 1/2 hours to get there & they were CLOSED! They didn't answer the phone or phone us to say sorry! Luckily The Barge Inn could feed us all.

The owners Mark and Nancy are lovely people, who always make sure their customers are happy. The drinks are quite expensive but the service, food and general atmosphere makes up for... More

Went here for lunch after a nice walk along the canal path. Food took about 40 minutes to arrive at the table but was worth the wait. Best thing was getting a mr whippy ice cream from the pub at the end of the meal

Came from Bristol to meet up with some old friends who had hired a canal boat from Bradford on a Friday afternoon for a hen weekend and after their long drive, plus negotiating the big lock, it was getting close to dark, so The Canal Tavern, just below the Bradford Lock, was a perfect first night stop. With The George... More

Excellent location along the Kennet & Avon Canal. Also ideally situated for a wander into Bradford on Avon. Very pleasant staff. Family friendly. Generous portions with a decent size menu choice. Would certainly visit again in the future.
