We were actually on our way to Boston to visit one one in hospital. We stopped off for lunch on he way. We had never been before and had no idea what to expect. We were quickly seated, despite not having booked and the place being rather busy. There was a light menu and a standard menu. We chose a... More

We enjoyed a good lunch here. The food was reasonably price and the service acceptable. Very busy that day. The beer was well kept and good. The food was good with good size portions - not mini portions which I do not like/want.

Very nice place,staff very cheefull and efficent,food exellent, the fish was big enough to feed a family. The only problem is opening hours, you need to check before you go,also a good iidea to book as its very popular.

Five of us went for a birthday meal. 3 of us had fish, 1 gammon and 1 suet pudding. All food was hot and extremely tasty. We then had desserts. 4 of us had the raspberry white cheesecake and 1 had hot chocolate and custard. The service, staff and food was excellent. Looking forward to going again.

Stopped here while on the way home and glad we did to. Table service by lovely staff and a good choice on menu. We all had different requirements and our choice left us satisfied and wanting to make a return visit. The staff were on hand to clear away and everywhere was clean and tidy Thank you everyone.

We arrived at 2.30 and I had very pleasant baguette filled with roast beef and served with salad and chips for a... More

We have traveled the road north many times and are always looking for a good place to eat on the way back to Kings Lynn, this time we struck lucky and stopped at The Barge. We were earlier than usual and struggled to find somewhere to have a proper meal and were surprised that this pub started lunches at 11.30.... More

We have been here many times before, and never had cause for complaint or concern. Sometimes there are a few tiny problems like the toast is burnt but nothing too bad. On this occasion we turned up for breakfast at 10.45am, breakfast is served till 11.30am but on this day the female lead server changed it to 11.15am, they were... More

How disappointing, haven eaten at the barge and had some of the best battered fish around. To go there for our annual Christmas meal and be dished up what basically felt like rubbish from the bin, The beef was like a soggy dishcloth, the sprouts where drowning such a shame as we were all looking forward to going.I know they...
