Sunday roast is excellent. Good portion size, home cooked and very tasty. Great little pub in a good location. Will be using it again, regularly.

We enjoyed a very pleasant lunch at The Barge (or Barge Inn). Good food, we selected the set menu (three options, first, starter and dessert), very enjoyable. Good wine list and beers, can only revommend this old style English pub!

Popped in for a light bite and a drink. Friendly pub with nice atmosphere. Tasty soup did just the trick for a light lunch.
