The barge was one of the first pubs I went to when I was a teenager 40 years ago. The space invade and asteroid machines are no longer there and it now boasts home cooked food. There is a good atmosphere in the bar area and the staff are very friendly. We ordered food to try out the home cooking... More

Reviews made me feel confident this was a nice place to eat but it was just awful. Lasagna tasted very weird I couldn't eat it and the onion rings were a mouthful of oil. The staff were lovely but could seriously do with a revamp and a new chef. I won't be going again or recommending

A large group of us went to celebrate a work birthday lunch. We ordered not long on arrival, and waited for our meals to arrive. Then waited some more. After about 50mins of waiting the waitress came over to tell us the chef is dishing up our food. Eventually over an hour after originally ordering our food came at last.... More

Menu was good with plenty of choice,I had minted lamb burger and chips, it was a homemade burger with excellent thick cut chunky chips and a good size portion. Mate had nachos which he said was fantastic but too... More

Went here with a friend having not been to the barge for more than 20 years. Lots of other places in Grimsby have changed but not the Barge! Really nice atmosphere! Great cocktail and shots menu and really cheap. The staff were super friendly and helpful. The jukebox had a great range of tunes. All in all, had a great... More

Excellent Quality and Quantity of Food is really outstanding. Service was excellent. Prices are good. Doggy bag supplied if you cannot finish. Manager and staff really go out of their way to make you welcome. Nothing seems too much trouble for them.

Haven't visited for about 15 years so was a bit unsure when my work organised a leaving lunch there. Service was friendly and food was excellent. There were 12 of us and no complaints from anyone. Prices reasonable and the pub was quite kid friendly. Overall pleasantly surprised.

My girlfriend and i went there for a meal recently and we thoroughly enjoyed it. The choice of food on the menu was excellent and the chalk boards for the chefs specials were good. The food is reasonably priced and the portion sizes are large. We both had trouble finishing all of our dishes but we did in the end.... More
