Eaten here a number of times now. Since it has been refurbished it offers a reasonable selection on the menu, the food is very good. Pricey as you expect in London for good food but worth it. Can get busy and occasions such as Friday...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
