We had a delightful evening at the Barge before Christmas for a meal with friends!! We were greeted on arrival at the bar with a warm smile from the gentleman behind the bar and we awaited no time for our drinks to arrive!! A delightful young lady took us to our table in front of a log fire and she... More

A table for 4 .After being shown to our table we made our choices from the menu. It was a good 20 minutes plus when my husband decided he would go and ask if we needed to order at the bar ( we have been here several times before and knew we ordered from the table but nobody came to... More

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!.
