The City Barge
Overall the three of us had a very good experience. Sunday roast x3 was excellent (a little more gravy would have been welcome), service was pretty good although we did twice have to work hard to get the staff’s attention, nice atmosphere (although there were noisy children all over). They have a good formula here; we’ll be back.
Great evening / seated at a super table.....amazing food
Very nice pub, comfortable with different cosy spaces. Good atmosphere, friendly staff, fast service.
The choice of beers on tap is good and the food menu is very satisfactory, good balance.
Only downside, it’s a bit pricy but the quality is there. Would definitely recommend.
It was very busy and we literally had to barge our way in.
I love the location…even the walk alongside the river from Kew Bridge to the City Barge is a delight and to arrive at such a 'proper' riverside pub is a joy. The food is good, the portions ample and the sauces accompanying both my started salmon and main course beef, were excellent. And the staff were warm and welcoming. Top marks all round.
Love CityBarge - food was delicious and service was brilliant. Will keep going back!!
Manager Sean is terrific. He makes diners feel comfortable.
Took my son and granddaughter for Sunday lunch. Food was excellent but took a long time coming. My grand daughter's meal arrived but she had eaten half or more before ours came. However even though we didn't say anything when bought to the table we were told we wouldn't have to pay for our two meals. Because of this I would definitely return as the food was very good.
Saved us a great nook table with a view of the river and the food came in a jiffy. Welcoming staff and DELICIOUS / generous portions!
We are really happy you had a great experience with us and are looking forward to having you back. Team City Barge
Lovely Sunday Roast at The City Barge. Very accommodating to our late reduction in numbers, relaxed friendly service, great portions. We ate inside - outside looked lovely, but beware the high tide on The Thames, which can flow over onto the pavement!
Thank you for your review Iain, we hope to see you again soon. Team City Barge
Excellent service and host! We have been there a few time, always consistently good!
Child portion of Mac n cheese came out unbelievably hot, the bowl being so scalding hot it burnt our 2 year olds arm. We didn’t say anything at the time as weren’t aware she had touched it so much. It had obviously been under a grill to melt cheese then straight onto the table. Not expected for a child meal. No indication from server that it was scalding hot. Would not recommend simply for this fact.
Two tables occupied however had to walk to bar to get service not great
Had a lovely Saturday evening here with the ladies. Great ambiance & lovely but not overly loud. Food & service perfect. Would highly recommend & will be going back there very soon.
Great view of the Thames with outdoor options when the sun is out. Solid English pub with a welcoming and friendly vibe.
Apart from the terrible waitress, this was another great experience sitting outside in the sun by the riverside enjoying some great food!
Lunch on the whole was enjoyable but the surly waitress clattering constantly whilst polishing the cutlery was extremely irritating.
Great lunch by the river, made more humorous by a bunch of adults setting sale in their inflatables down the Thames! Lovely food, great service and would highly recommend The City Barge.
Good food. Early booking so a bit quiet in the restaurant.
Our 4th visit. Service is always very good, as is the food.
A good balanced menu, something to suit everyone. The Japanese salmon is a popular favourite.
The City Barge is a great gastro pub. The food is very good and very well executed. We have been there many times and never been disappointed.
Always a reliable and great meal 👍🏻
Food took a while to arrive but it was very nice
As always the whole meal was amazing from all regards, I can’t recommend this place highly enough.
Without doubt the best fish and chips in Chiswick. In fact every dish on the menu is delicious. Trust me I've tried them all!
Limited vegetarian choices
Lovely pub on the river. Very good food and exceptional staff. Will go back many times.
It couldn’t be a more friendly place. Try it!!!
Food and service were good. Bitterly disappointed at the end of the evening that the option to pay a gratuity was left open on the credit card machine. Despite the fact that there is a hefty 12.5% service charge already included in the bill. I fell for this and inadvertently added another 12.5 % to the bill. Left with a bitter taste in my mouth.
Food very poor . One dish inedible and had to be sent back! Would not recommend or visit again
We really enjoyed our time at the City Barge. The staff was great on all levels and the food was quite good. I had the fish-and-chips along with a soup. My colleague has the trout and the duck appetizer.
I would recommend going there, tho I did feel it was a bit pricey.
My party loved the place especially the neat app for the gluten and lactose intolerant guests.
We would most definitely recommend this place. Friendly, relaxed atmosphere, superb food and outstanding customer service.
The City Barge is a quaint gastropub on the river Thames. It has board games, a space which makes you feel like you're in a living room, an outside area with seats and an all-round general good vibe. Food is gastropub worthy albeit quite expensive for a 2-course meal for 4 with wine and drinks.
Recommended but don't forget your wallet!
Really friendly staff, great food and great service. Couldn’t ask for more, will definitely be back.
By the river in a beautiful stretch of houses which have not changed significantly in the last fifty years. Good food and a great atmosphere
We had a family dinner. Service was lovely, and excellent food - huge portions!
Delicious lamb and sliced potatoes. We ordered a carpaccio, which it wasn’t really- the meat was already half cooled.
Very good service, was seated quickly and didn’t have to wait long for anything. Very afternoon out.
Good food, if slow service - seems to be a reoccurring theme...
We are there on Tuesday evening. The evening was made by the wonderful friendly servers who couldn't have been more helpful. By the way, the food was excellent!
Great choice of food and service was excellent! We thoroughly enjoyed our evening!
