If you're absolutely famished you may be able to finish what's on your plate. If you're not, you may have trouble doing so, but you'll definitely enjoy your meal.

When we visited, the atmosphere was a pleasant one and the food was just delicious. You can expect to enjoy more than just regular pub food.

The menu is quite extensive, so you may have a bit of trouble choosing, but I guess that means you can always go back again and sample something else the next time.

The menu choice is extensive and the portions huge - definitely worth a visit, although make sure you look out for the brown signs otherwise you could get lost in the industrial estate trying to find it like we did!

I do agree that if you are not familiar with the area the Bargeman’s is not the easiest to find, however it is reassuring to know that the brown signs are doing their job! Thanks for persevering and I am pleased that you enjoyed your visit.

Great choice of drinks, lovely food and a really nice atmosphere. It's right on the river and they often have live bands playing as well. Perfect for young and old alike.

I have eaten at the Bargeman's Rest many times over the last 11 years, The food is always consistently good. Last Wednesday, in the company of friends I had the spare ribs for the first time. What a delicious meal. Cooked so they fall off the bone with an excellent BBQ sauce and accompanied with chips and a salad. Good value for money ay £10.75
The selection of beers and wines is extensive although expensive. The view from the balcony on a summers day or evening next to the river is pleasant and relaxing.
Will be back again for more soon.
