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

Lovely service, Chelsea I think, a pleasant change. I had Cajun Chicken and Rice, truly delicious, it sort of had a X factor very tasty. OH had the gourmet burger, he won't be having any tea, it was a right plate full. He said it was as good as any burger he has anywhere and put it in his personal... More

I visited with my family for an afternoon meal. As there was 8 of us it took an hour for the food to be served. We all received our meals together and the food was delicious! I have busted many times before with my friends and partner and service was much quicker. Will definitely continue to visit.

Popped in on the spur of the moment after shopping and had evening tea. The choice was ample and prices reasonable. We both went for Fish (Haddock) chips and mushy peas. My fish was battered and deep fried and my wife's grilled. I can only say they were both delicious as were the home made chips and mushy peas. The... More

I have read the few bad reviews of this place and just cant believe it. Iv eaten here around 3-4 times and every time the food has been lovely. Everything comes perfectly seasoned and freshly made. It really DOES taste like quality homecooked food rather than a serving from chef mike.(kitchen nightmares reference haha) Prices are £7.50 for a main... More

My very first impression on The Barge when arriving in Grimsby is that it just appeared to be a dive bar type place. But after entering and heading downstairs my view completely changed as the ambience enveloped me. It became a very fun experience, just knowing you're in this little barge actually is pretty cool. The folks behind the bar... More
