On a daytrip to Peterborough with a friend who had spotted this restaurant online. We weren't quite sure what we were looking for the exterior of the barge was a little offputting. So glad we went in - the service was really good and the staff very friendly. The menu choice was good and the food was genuinely lovely. Will... More

Operating on an old Dutch Barge, moored on the river, East has never disappointed when I have dined there. The food is consistently excellent, the service friendly and the ambience lively, yet relaxed and informal. Having owned and run an award winning Thai restaurant myself, I know what cuts the mustard and this place certainly does!

great food, go you won't regret it, went on the off chance and found that the sunday lunch is a buffet, £10.95 per person, not a big choice, but you can eat as much as you want, really scrummy

We were taken to eat on this converted Dutch Barge, moored on the river by Town Bridge. Knowing that we enjoy Thai cooking, this was the choice. An excellent choice too. The Supplementary questions offered by Tripadvisor don't do justice to the range of cuisine - Malaysian? A bit; Cantonese? a bit? We were focusing on the Thai menu items.... More

Don't be put off by the slightly rough exterior of this barge restaurant. The East restaurant is on the top floor of the barge and is very nicely kitted out. The food is wonderful and the service very friendly and efficient. The tables by the windows overlooking the river are best as you can watch the world sail by.

I have been here a couple of times, always impressed with service and food. I would say it was on par with the Brewery Tap in terms of food, a bit more expensive but a nicer setting.

We went on a Tuesday night and was surprised to see it so full. There was two of us and we ordered the set menu c for £25 each with a bottle of merlot. The Los Espinos wine was fantastic, so drinkable. We had spiced prawn crackers to nibble on which were so good. The starters were Tempura vegetables, ribs,... More

Went out with work colleagues on a warm sunny evening, atmosphere was lovely, boat, river, sun, light music but unfortunately the food was average for me, I wouldn't go here again to eat as food is over priced and tasteless. Rice and chicken very poorly cooked. But if you want to pay for the atmosphere then you might as well... More

Had a fantastic meal, varied Thai dishes and very polite staff. Quality of the fresh food was excellent with a good choice of wines too Will definitely return to sample the delights again.

Chose here as it was close to the hotel and had been recommended. When we arrived it was fairly empty but was told tables had been booked and we might not be able to get served. Luckily got a table that wasn't required for 2 hours, which suited us. Ordered the set menu "A" for two and was not disappointed.... More
