The City Barge
A lovely cosy pub, the food was outstanding and amazing value. Pork belly rolled with a fabulous herb mixture in the middle. Great wine which was very reasonably priced. Highly recommend
Really good experience. Animal friendly pub, this is important for us. Will certainly return!
Great pub atmosphere with a good selection of beer. We were particularly pleased with the quality of the food - the chicken was crisp and succulent. and the salmon, thinly cut and chilled, particularly tasty. The best of the Strand-on-the-Green options!
Having driven through the area a no of times pleasant surprise to find a gem on the Thames goid food and ambience
The City Barge marries a great location with good food and a great vibe
Staff are great
Food was delicious and a great location. Decorated very tastefully throughout. Thoroughly recommend the roast pork Sunday lunch. Service was also friendly and attentive. I expect to be a regular there over the summer, and am keen to try the bottomless brunch!
I used to come to The City Barge quite a bit when I worked in Brentford. Not so much recently. I decided to go this weekend on my Birthday. The whole experience was wonderful and the food, service, and ambiance perfect. One of the best Sunday lunches in West London. We had such a great time and will be back again soon!
Lovely setting and excellent food and service as always.
Returned to CB a second time while in London from US. Celebrating our daughter’s work triumph. We missed the alert about the time change and showed a hr early - NO PROBLEM.
Sean seared us and had crisp G&Ts and our glorious Sunday Roast in front us in record time. Love this restaurant.
There was no-one to greet us on arrival and other staff couldn’t help; once we were attended to we had good service and enjoyed the food. We ate early as we were going to Kew for the last night of Chihuly exhibition so it was quite noisy as there were quite a few family dinners going on. Would love to come back next Summer and dine outside if possible. We all enjoyed our meals.
This was a disappointing evening. The service was really poor. We were there for a special occasion and had mentioned this in my booking but no one even mentioned it. On arrival waiting staff just walked past us and didn’t even acknowledge us at all. Real shame.
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
