We have been to East, but not for a long time, due to choosing restaurants more local. We decided to go to East, 1 because we have been here before, and 2 because the food is really good, and we certainly were not disappointed. We had amazing food and the service was really friendly and welcoming. Thank you Kay & Rich x

The Service was very good, the food was excellent ( we had a mixed platter for two starter, followed by Thai green Curry and Tamarind Chicken, Yummeee) and Seats over looking the river, very nice. Popped in to the Bar downstairs afterwards to sample a few of their many Gins. Happy days.
Only downside, the wine was a bit expensive.

Went for a spontaneous lunch. Booked with only an hour notice. Lovely welcome and friendly staff. Offered Sunday buffet or main menu. We chose main menu. Always amazing food- I really love their food and have never heard anyone ever give bad feedback. Very quick service even though it was busy.

A good evening out. Not rushed. Service is excellent. Food choice great. Good quality. The bar downstairs is good to retire to afterwards. Have eaten many times here. The evening service cannot be faulted. Have tried the sunday buffet before. Almost all negative reviews you see for this place are from those doing sunday buffet. The sunday buffet is a fraction of the evening cost and has limited choices. I personally dont think you can be too critical given how cheap it is so ignore those reviews and experience the full evening service you wont be dissapointed.

This is absolutely one of our go-to restaurants. We never go to Peterborough without stopping at East for a meal. Great location on the barge; above a great bar with frequent events; super range and quality food and a very pleasant and accommodating staff. We love East.

Excellent venue for get together. We attended to wish our colleague a happy retirement. The restaurant organised a round table for 9, the service and standard of food was superb. Great range of dishes to choose from - half the party had set meals and others choose from the main menu. All was faultless. Thank you East for making it a memorable evening.

The food was excellent. We went as a party of six with very differing dietary needs and these were catered for very well. My wife and are vegan so arrived a little early to ask about the food and whether it was suitable and the waitress was very helpful and pointed out all the dishes that were available. The ambience was lovely. Overall a great experience.

Great value on a Tuesday as its only £10 for a starter and a main course with rice. There are around 10 dishes to choose from and ours was very flavoursome. I would advise booking in advance as it was very busy. Service was good as well and it's quite different eating on a barge. We will definately be going back.
