I always enjoy eating here and have done for years. On Sunday the food was at its absolute best; lots of it, very fresh and perfectly cooked. One of my favourite places to eat, in Peterborough.

Always a nice atmosphere, food lovely especially green chicken curry. Can’t fault the staff..... polite & professional. Can be slightly noisy at times depending if there is a band playing under East..... not particularly a problem but if you want a quieter meal book early.

Have been going to East for the best part of 20 years and have never had a bad meal. A little pricey but you pay for what you get which is stunning food in a nice atmosphere.

Added to that a bar downstairs (Charters) that offers good beer, lots of gin varieties and often live music, you’ve got a great setting for a night out.

Quite possibly my favourite restaurant in the whole world..!!

Another lovely Saturday night at East. Table by the window to watch the swans glide by. Tried a couple of new things on the menu. Wife had the whole sea bass in banana leaf, which wasn't cheap at £18.50, but she said it was terrific. I had the Korean confit duck and it was OK but I prefer it crispier so that it just falls off the bone. Service was excellent, as always. Will be back again soon.

The usual high quality food and excellent service in an unusual location (permanently moored barge). IMHO this is the best restaurant in Peterborough.

I had driven past East several times over the past few weeks and decided to take my girlfriend there on Friday night. And it was well worth it. Friendly, welcoming, and helpful staff. Good drinks selection. And outstanding food!! We are definitely going to be returning very soon!!

Lovely staff. Food wasn't great at all. Went for the Sunday buffet and it was disappointing. Considering there were only 4 main dishes, I was surprised that I had to repeatedly go back to wait until the meat was replenished. People had picked out the meat, and the sauces sat for a while. The chicken wings were lovely though!

Wouldn't go back

Was let down by the unfriendly and lack of consideration to my food allergy. A separate email is being sent. At present I would not recommend this place to anyone with any allergy’s as they are definitely not accommodated for. This is such a huge shame in the 21st century and left me upset after a lovely evening with friends. Will not consider going back for a long while until something’s changed!

We had Sunday Buffet.Good choice of starters,. Some dishes could have been a little hotter,perhaps a lidded container, .
Main dishes, were varied, something for everyone, including vegetarians..
We had a very pleasant lunch, enjoyed by all of us. We did not feel rushed at any time.
Would certainly recommend it.
