Live Music – Cozy Friendly Pub
Jan 2016 • Couples
I found this pub when searching for live music in the area – they have a great website with a full listing of upcoming gigs and events. We decided to try the pub and took friends here last Friday night for live music ‘King Size Slim.’ We took a taxi which was a good call, as the pub is tucked away on small side streets. Entering we all felt immediately pleasantly surprised and welcomed. The pub’s décor is warm and cosy, clean, comfortable and a bit rustic. The music was outstanding, but was very busy so we didn't get a table but were happy to stand and jive along with many others enjoying the music. Drinks were reasonable with quick and friendly service. Will definitely be visiting again.

A nice relaxing evening
Nov 2015 • Solo
This was my first visit to The Barge.
I've never been before in the 25 years that I've lived in Gillingham as it's tucked away, but a friend told me about it so I thought I would give it a try.
It felt very homely and I didn't feel like a stranger. I like the idea of using the candles.
The music was good and added to a enjoyable evening.

Great little find with superb views over the river. Cannot believe I have never been as a local. Super interesting, friendly bar staff, nice clientele and good music. As the big man says, I'll be back!

Smelled of cat wee and poo and was very cold
Mar 2015 • Friends
When no one is in this pub ie when no bands are on, it stinks, not the only time I have been in here and I could smell cat urine and poo, I gave it another chance and ended up leaving with our bottle as we moved around the pub to avoid the stench it became apparent that it was everywhere. I guess when it's busy you don't smell it. The hygiene of this place is questionable as everyone we know gets a bad stomach the day after so if you go stick to bottled drinks and you should be fine! Oh and don't go in the day as you can see how filthy it is, by candlelight it's ok.

Friendly pub, great atmosphere
Jul 2014 • Friends
I went there to see a French band Sur Les Docks which were very good. I went there with my son and as soon as we got to the bar we were served quickly by friendly staff. The pub has a great atmosphere and is lit by candlelight. Everybody is very friendly and everybody talks to everybody which is rear in this day and age.
I would not hesitate to go there again and would recommend it to anyone. Well done to everyone in the running of the pub.
