Decided to try this pub for Saturday lunch and was not disappointed. Have often driven by in the summer and its always looked busy. The menu consisted of the usual 'pub grub' - pie, scampi etc but it was certainly of a higher standard. My husband had the liver and bacon which was amazing. You can tell the food is... More

My wife and I visited Sunday 19th in the evening, we live in the area but somehow we are let this little gem pass us by. We had tried the Toby Carvery close by but we had been told there was an hour wait. My wife suggested that we try the Barge Inn but we were both unsure if they... More

Decided to book the Barge Inn after seeing the set Valentine's menu, it did not dissappoint!! Great value 3 courses for £29.99 with generous portions. Beef wellington main was cooked to perfection! Attentive friendly service and fab cocktails! Well done the barge will definatley be coming back.

This pub is situated in a small village in Battlesbridge, food and service is excellent, very clean, may be a good idea to reserve a table as can be fully booked at weekends.

We only chose to go here during the afternoon so booked an early table (6.00pm) prior to going out to meet friends. Good job we did cos most tables had a reserved sign on them. The staff were friendly and even though we had to wait for a while it was worth it. We had the pie and liver& bacon... More

We called in here at 12 noon last Saturday hoping to be able have lunch. We hadn't reckoned on how busy a place this is as there was only one small table for 2 not booked. This was placed in the doorway between two rooms- not the best situation but beggars can't be choosers! The menu was varied and quite... More

Popped in with friends visiting area before flying out from Stansted. Didn't want full lunch just a cake and coffee or sandwich. Three of us has sandwiches which were huge granary bread slices and filled well. The cake or even muffins offered were premade and wrapped not "homemade" so was disappointed with that. That being said friendly and quick service.... More

Regularly stop here for a drink & on this visit decided to have dinner here. We scanned the menu & both of us went for the liver & bacon. Due to us feeling a bit below par decided to give the luscious starters a miss (unfortunately)......We didn't have to wait too long for our meals arrive which were presented well... More

This an old grade 2 listed buiding. The interior is that of an old fashioned pub The menu mixed traditional pub fare with more modern items, so fish and chips and sausage and mash or Malaysian style chicken salad We had garlic bread to share - it was chunky and resonant with garlic - very good My starter of whitebait...
