Barge East


Ratings and reviews


Location and contact

The most magical eating and drinking destination in London, Barge East is based on a historic 114 year old Dutch Barge full of charm and character. With an incredible outdoor deck overlooking London's skyline and the Olympic Stadium, the menu combines small plate dishes with flavours from across the globe, influenced by Head Chef, Ryan's time spent cooking on yachts.

Great time on the top deck with about 20 friends. Heated space and long table for sitting with drinks. Would highly recommend. Only downfall would be to have louder music to create a bit more of a party atmosphere.

Booked in here for a meal after visiting ABQ for the cocktail experience. The location is great, and it's very popular - quite noisy inside as there were a couple of big groups celebrating but it didn't spoil anything, the atmosphere was buzzy and the...More

Been here many times for drinks, first time here for food having seen decent looking dishes being served up on previous visits. Of the five in our party, two were vegans who were carefully cared for by the incredibly helpful and pleasant lady serving today....More
