Loved our Friday afternoon spent at this lovely pub, my friend had the Greek cheese starter which she said was delicious & I had the salmon which was as light & tasty as I was hoping for. Main courses didn't disappoint either I had the cod which was cooked perfectly & my friend had the burger which she said was... More

We were looked after very well by all the staff who were accommodating, pleasant and well-mannered. Particularly impressive as we were 9 adults 4 children and two babies. The food was faultless, especially the Sunday Roast. Wine was fairly priced and apparently the beer was up to snuff! We will definitely return for another family celebration.

We live fairly near to the City Barge but only discovered it fairly recently. It has a beautiful riverside setting with the tube train trundling over the bridge to one side. We were impressed by the menu and range of real ale as well as the friendly staff and excellent service. When we saw the private dining area upstairs we... More

The ambiance of the dining area, and the quality of the food have made this a memorable evening. I chose the corn fed chicken, another in the party had the dressed crab, which was excellent.

Bit of a random find and our local pub by far, yet somehow we end up there every Sunday. We pretend to make an effort for our dog to take her to Richmond only to have excuse to visit Barge. Pork belly is so nice it took me four Sundays to try different thing on the menu and I wasn't... More

Haven't been to this great pub for ages, but it was such a beautiful day we decided to go. I was with my wife and her sister who was down from Scotland. We were sitting outside the pub as we were early. A delightful young waitress asked if we wanted to order which we did. We ordered two pates and... More

Came her for lunch with my wife and baby. Really nice place. Nice decor. We sat outside with nice views of the river. Food was also nice. Fish and chips is recommended. Good selection of drinks, although they need more ales! Overall a nice experience. Would definitely visit again.

Dear Kabir, Thank you so much for your lovely review, it was so kind of you to write. I was delighted to read you enjoyed our fish and chips. With my 7 current hand pull ales, I am unfortunately all out of space, but we do try and rotate them as often as possible with all sorts of local breweries.... More

This is one of my locals. Food and booze always great, decor nice, location hard to beat. But personally I sometimes find the atmosphere a little bit flat. Most people are still crying out for a boozer which feels like a boozer, just with better food and cleaner lavs. You certainly get the latter, but there's no real connection between... More

Dear Howard, Thank you very much for taking the time to write a review, I am so pleased you enjoy it here. I was rather upset to read that you felt there is not a real connection between staff and customers. This is something I really strive to achieve as we have such a regular customer base and I certainly... More

Had our Summer Party drinks at the City Barge on what could have been one of the hottest days of the year! Beautiful setting by the river and 5* service from the very lovely Managers and bar staff that look after us very well. Thank you!

Following an extensive refurbishment this historic 14th century public house is due to open in late May. The City Barge will be the perfect Thames side pub featuring a stunning dining room and bar, large open kitchen, all overlooking the river. The interior will retain much of the original architectural detail and period fixtures and fittings as well as three open fires. The menu will focus on seasonal British ingredients as well as hand pulled local ales and ciders. The City Barge will be open daily from midday for lunch and from 10am at weekends for breakfast and brunch
