An absolutely superb meal, traditional British fare, with thrilling umami twists. The barge is a lovely space - made more intimate by the rain - with great service from staff who have a genuine enthusiasm and passion for the food and the restaurant. Deservedly so...: an imaginative devised and perfectly delivered menu, full of great flavours and textures, cooked with confidence and subtlety. I can also honestly say that this is the first time I’ve ever felt the need to rave about leeks. Go.More

Service was great if a little over eager. The door kept slamming which created the feeling like we were actually in the kitchen. Food was in general over priced but good and tasty. I probably won’t go back there as it wasn’t that remarkable other...then the location and the boat the restaurant really was quite standard.More

We try to dine at Barge East every couple of months and every single time is an amazing experience. The staff is the friendliest in all of London, the set menus have loads of diversity and are always a feast. Simply one of the best...in East London.More

Great venue but quality of food let’s it down and is overpriced. Staff are fantastic. Unfortunately I think our table was near a kitchen ventilator as we both left smelling of smoky fumes. Garden restaurant is much better.

Came here with friends not from London and had the best time! Great location and visit was made even better because of Louis. He was completely attentive and super friendly - he’s an asset!

Booked for lunch. Fab food, service and ambience. Great background music. The rose wine by the glass was delicious. Will definitely be visiting again.
