Pleasantly surprised

Visited here with family. There were 7 of us having 6 different meals at mid-afternoon. From fish and chips, burger, enchilidas and the mixed grill. Staff were friendly, as was the whole atmosphere of the pub. And it seems to cater for all generations. All the meals were perfect and they don't... read more

Me and my wife were in the town centre so we decided to go to The Barge where we'd eaten some good haddock and chips a few years ago. To accompany our meal we chose a couple of pints of Hobgoblin. Our meal arrived... More

Now then Bargey baby, I did not expect such fine food to come from this establishment! Not saying it's a horrible place, because it certainly isn't, but I'm used to thinking of it as just a good rock pub for a drunken Tuesday night. How wrong I was. Beautiful hot food, massive portions and excellent value for money. Will eat... More

The barge has been my second home for 14 years. Always feel safe here and have made many many friends here too. At night it comes alive with alternative music and a great atmosphere and during the day it serves epic home cooked food. Will always have a special place in my heart <3

Lovely fresh food. Nice and hot. Staff lovely. Does get busy quickly. I did find the chips a bit to thick therefore a little underdone but that's just personal choice. Overall a good meal out
