Great pub on the canal

Visited the barge inn last Friday with family , good job we booked as place was full , soon seen why food was very good with a great service . Nice relaxing atmosphere, would have been great to sit outside on canal but raining as normal for July .

Had a nice lunch here overlooking the canal. Lots of seats and parking. They have a wide range of food and specials of the day. We opted for the small plate selection which was plenty for us oldies at £5.95 to £6.95 each Cider on tap, we had Stowford at £3.95 a pint and bottled water was a bit steep... More

Lovely pub with interesting phrases on the beams although we sat in the garden with the dog . Varied menu of more than pub grub whilst watching the narrow boats go by . We had to walk a few more miles to burn off our generous portions .

Very relaxing and comfortable pub. Been there for drinks with friends, we sat outside and played domino, right next to the canal. Beautiful.

What better place to spend a late Saturday afternoon, sat in the sunshine, a pint (or a few) of Wadworths 6X watching the tourists attempt the impossible on their canal boats after their 20 minute guide. Beautiful scenery surrounds, the beam in the bar sums it up "alcohol- no great story started with a salad". A table was booked for... More

A very pleasant couple of hours sitting by the canal watching the boats and boaters, and enjoying a ploughman's and a charcuterie board. Both of these were beautifully presented and the portions were generous, and served with very good bread. The salad with the ploughman's was a bit unimaginative, but other than that, very good all round. And the 6X... More

Excellent stop for canal boats, parking either side of the canal, with a bridge to walk over. If you are not on a boat it is great watching the canal activity. Great food, with plenty of options including veggie meals.
