A group of 16 of us have recently had our office Christmas Party at the City Barge. We had the private dining room (The Harrowden Room) for a Christmas dinner in early December 2016. We were warmly greeted by friendly staff, a beautifully decorated room and buckets of Prosecco. The service team were very attentive and didn't rush us, they... More

I had a delightful Friday lunch here with colleagues recently (went for the burger with extra jalapenos, which was a very good call indeed) and the relaxed, cosy ambience was such that I could have happily lingered for a 'lost afternoon'. The scenic riverside location is a joy in summer and winter alike, and the staff are fun and friendly.... More

The Barge epitomises what a good London pub should be like. It's busy and bustling but the staff are well up to coping with the pressure so no undue delays in service while, at the same time, they maintain a warm and welcoming attitude to their customers. Coming from rural West Wales we found the atmosphere very different from the... More

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
