This pub was recommended, by my sister who lives locally, as a good pub for lunch ... and we were not disappointed. Excellent position by the river .There is a very wide selection of beers and well presented pub grub
The staff were also very friendly and helpful.
It was snowing on the day we were there so the large wood fire was very welcome and added to the atmosphere

I have eaten at The Old Barge numerous times. The food itself is First Class, the atmosphere is wonderful and the staff are excellent. The well-stocked bar has an excellent selection of Real Ales and bottled beers which are kept and served to the best standard. They have Jazz evenings every other Thursday evening and a quiz night on Sundays which is very well attended and great fun. Throughout the last year there have been many and varied functions such as Wine and food matching evenings, Whisky tastings, Film nights and a Murder Mystery evening. There has been a Crayfishing Festival in the Summer for the inder 12's for the last few years and during the school holidays there is often a free film showing with free popcorn!!!!
I realise that this review sounds more like an advertisement but I am a great fan and would recommend The Old Barge without hesitation.

I love this place so much. I have been here few times and I always felt very comfortable and relaxed. the pub is next o the river lea and that certainy adds beauty to the pub.
they serve many brands of beer and ale. I haven't seen any other pub at hertford serving so many.
I enjoyed the jazz played by my definition "uncle band". the staff are very courteous and friendly...

I recently visited this pub in the half term with my two children and fiancé and thought it was fab! Although the prices were quite high the food quality and atmosphere was at a high standard. Will be visiting again!
