Hey me & two friends had a gorgeous breakfast on Saturday. We had the veggie option & the Full English. Both were awesome. Lovely touch that the baked beans are homemade & extremely delicious. And Kale & lovely sourdough. Highly recommend. Staff were super friendly & super efficient. Thank you

I was really impressed with the staff. It was my son’s 21st Birthday and they were really kind and attentive. I would highly recommend the Grain Barge whether it’s for a quick pint or a meal out.

Great service. Really friendly people. The roast seems to be more focused on quality than quantity, which is good but a few more veggies would have made this 5 star in my books.

I booked my table online. Got reservation confirmation via email. On arrival I was told that they normally ring to confirm the table and they were not aware that I had booked. However they had a table for us and the food and service was great. I cannot understand why you have online booking ability when you do not use it. Very confusing!

Our main course arrived before we had had time to eat any of our starter and the table behind us were having fun but extremely noisy. Not your fault, or theirs, just difficult.Could do with more vegetables.Otherwise definitely happy and would book again.
