If you want relatively cheap, decent pub food, with good portions so you aren't left hungry afterwards, go here. I've eaten here on a few occasions, it is consistently good. The staff are helpful and friendly, I also asked for one meal without an ingredient, and that was not a problem. Recommended.

My son took me to the Barge for a lunchtime meal, what a great choice it was. Two main meals and a coffee for £13, now that is good value. He had Lasagne and I went for Fish & Chips with Mushy peas which also cost £5.95, the Fish was moist and fresh and the batter was nicely browned and... More

The food is good, I'd say a little better than your average gastro pub. What makes this place great is the portions and cost. I had the fajitas once and two of us didn't manage to clear the plate. They have a reasonably varied menu as well as a few specials. It is a rock and roll venue but don't... More

Visited today (12/09/13) with my wife. We had heard a couple of good reviews from other people that had been and based on the fact it's number two on Trip Advisor we were looking forward to having lunch onboard the Barge. The food was reasonably priced. I had steak pie and my wife opted for the blue cheese burger which... More

Came her after seeing it was No1 on here, was pleasantly surprised! Although a few tweaks could be made I would thoroughly recommend the food. I had Curry, needed more spice as was very bland and my rice was watery, but my partners burger was out of this world. Would not hesitate too come back at all!! :)

I usually frequent The Barge in its alter ego as a rock pub at night, and had been hearing fantastic reports of the food for a while. They did not disappoint! We ordered what we thought would be a snack, club chicken wrap, what we got was one the biggest wraps I have ever seen, a decent sized side salad... More
