We visited The Barge a few weeks ago on a lunch time for a family meal. There were 7 of us and I have to say we were all impressed with our food and the service was very good! Despite us all ordering with 3 seperate orders, all our food came out at the same time which would never happen... More

Having been to the Barge on several visits to Grimsby but only ever for a drink, it was high up my list of things to do to actually eat there. I ordered the gourmet burger and have to say I questioned my choice when it arrived at the table. It was huge and all of my group commented that it... More

I recently visited family and decided to revisit the place that I have always considered my "local". Being a lot older than the last time I frequented the barge I didn't know what to expect. I am glad to say that only a few things have changed and it is good to be able to visit a place that has... More

After seeing the fantastic food being served, Phillip and I returned on Sunday for fish and chips. First class service and first class food. Picture does not do the plate service as it was so large and had... More

The food was absolutely delicious. The best lasagna that I have ever eaten. Each mouthful a delight. I had a jacket potato served with salad and coleslaw to accompany my lasagne. We were a party of 4 ladies. We had reserved a table which was ready on our arrival. The staff informed us that the meal would take about 30... More

A previous review from me rated this venue as the best pub Sunday lunch I had experienced.Regretfully my last two sunday lunches have shown that for some reason standards have slipped .The just home cooking feeling has disappeared replaced by what appears to be precooked veg and roast spuds microwaved dinged before service.Mashed potato served cold is also not a...

Nice little pub, friendly people. Quite dark inside, good for small gatherings. Drinks are reasonably priced, went on a weeknight, about 7pm, not too crowded.

Tasty food, spot on chips. The BEST coleslaw I've ever eaten in my whole life!! Beef too fatty and chewy (cheap meat), but everything else really tasted good. Good friendly service on the boat in town!

I went to The Barge for lunch today with a friend for the first time. I'd been told how nice it was and decided to give it a try. I had a chicken and bacon wrap and my friend had the prawn salad wrap. I was shocked when our food arrived, it looked stunning! Beautifully presented and lots of it!... More
