A great spot for a meal especially in the summertime with the canal and countryside. Close enough to find but far enough away in the country to feel you are "out there".

A large group had Christmas lunch at the Barge Inn. The location is great, by the canal, picturesque countryside, the pub has a large car park and plenty of outside seating. Inside our group had a more private section of the pub looking out to the canal. The staff were attentive and organised which was impressive. There was a varied... More

Cannot fault the location, right on the canal. The restaurant is deceptively large and would be very busy at peak times. We called in for lunch, the staff on duty were welcoming, food was good with a reasonable selection on the menu and variety of drinks including ciders. The table service was also good.

The pub is in a lovely setting, even in the winter seeing the barges and people wandering around the canal banks is lovely. I am not a great fan of Sunday lunches as they often remind me of school dinners but decided to try for a change, it was absolutely lovely. The quality was good, the plates were hot and... More

Having read all of the glowing reviews booked a birthday treat sunday lunch at the barge inn.The location,staff and service were,very much as described.The roast dinners,however were poor.For £12.50 I would expect hot food,potatoes other than pre-cooked cold ones and of course some hot gravy.Pretty straightforward basic stuff,I would have thought!.

Hand an evening meal here during October half term week. We were on a canal boat holiday and moored opposite. Lovely setting and the pub was all light up as it got dark. Nice atmosphere, nice staff and very helpful. Good choice and quality a most enjoyable meal.

Good food, good service. I however I do struggle sometimes with the menu but on this occasion I had pork belly bites and a ceasar salad as my main course, all in all good and looking at other meals (18 of us) everyone seemed to enjoy. This is a lovely place to visit especially on a sunny day and you... More

We had lunch here today and were very pleased with what we had. The starters were delicious and generous. The main courses were of normal proportions, also delicious and piping hot. The desserts were also excellent and generous. The latte and cappuccino with which we finished the meal were also very nice and authentic. Service was pleasant and efficient. Although... More
