This is a very traditional pub located close to the picturesque quayside. The decor is unashamedly nautical in character. You have to fight your way through assorted row locks and binnacles, oars and navigation lights. The food is served in large portions and is freshly cooked and well presented. The garlic chicken is highly recommended. I was there on a... More

I only have one downside of this pub/restaurant when I was ordering and paying for my food I got the impression 2 members of staff were having a private joke at my expense, this may not have been the case but it made me feel uncomfortable. Other than that the food was excellent. Very well cooked and presented and more... More

Had dinner here with my parents. We all really enjoyed our meals, good food, beautifully cooked. Not the cheapest but the quality and portion size really do justify the prices. Make sure you're hungry !!

I would like to congratulate the Bargeman for the amazing ambiance and food they serve. We had a great experience and we try whenever we are on the Island to eat there.

Many thanks for your second excellent review of the Bargeman’s. All of your comments are most welcome although I was concerned that you felt a member of staff was unfriendly and unwelcoming. I shall be looking into this and hope it does not deter you from visiting again next time that you are on the Island. More

Good belly busting size meals, nice and clean serving area. Boasting plenty of ambience and a beautiful scenery outside. Ordering could be made easier as menu is huge and personally I don't like separate areas to order food and drinks. Toilets although look clean the decor makes it look a bit scummy at the same time.

Dan M, Manager at The Bargeman's Rest, responded to this review

Thank you for your kind review. We choose to operate a separate food ordering station on busy sessions to try and alleviate congestion and waiting times at the bar. I am sorry that you felt our toilets décor was not up to scratch but I am glad that you enjoyed your time with us and hope we can welcome you... More

Spent a wonderful December afternoon drinking and eating in the Bargeman. Could not fault it. Great selection of ale and even better selection of food. Great location positioned right by the marina. Wonderful.
