Went in for a swift half and stayed 4 hours

Faultless. Well almost. Some local cider or scrumpy would've been sublime, but otherwise the food and staff couldn't be faulted. Friendly and tasty. And the food was excellent too..

My family (ten in all) including two children and one young adult spent a very pleasant three hours having our Mothering Sunday Lunch. We arrived at 1.00 p.m. and were quickly given the menu and asked for drinks orders. The staff were pleasant and nothing was too much trouble. Everyone chose something different from the menu, some had starters and... More

Called in for a spot of lunch mid week and it was first class, warm friendly service, food served really hot just want you want, and the beer was excellent. Thank you.

Stopped for a light lunch last week. We had two baguettes, sausage & stilton and ham & cheese. Food quality was very good - lovely crisp well filled bread and a decent salad with it. One baguette came with chips that we hadn't asked for - we were charged for it! However, after mentioning it the cost was immediately removed... More

Great food, lovely ambiance and super views of the canal. Excellent fish and chips, wonderfully light batter and really fresh haddock, friendly and efficient service.

Back in the area after two years and visited the Barge on spec for a mid week lunch. Staff cheerful, service excellent. Drank the Swordfish and ate the thinly sliced ham (my preference) with duck eggs and chips plus a duck hash with mash potatoes. Thoroughly enjoyed, return visit didn't disappoint, would recommend a table by one of the open... More

We had planned to go to the Barge Inn for lunch and walked there from Devizes along the canal. It is a popular place for Sunday lunch and many tables were booked but we were still able to have a table for 4. The food was well prepared, quickly served and delicious. The staff were attentive and ensured our experience... More

Having gone for a walk by the canal we ended up back at the Barge and asked about the dogs. Yes they were welcome, and there were dog water bowls available and at the bar you could buy pigs ears for them. The meals were promptly served, good temperature and very tasty. We were welcomed well, staff were pleasant and... More
