City Barge

It’s not actually a barge, it’s a 14th century pub but don’t hold that against them. Especially when it boasts an outside space with a terrace, snug and deck chairs on the grass extending right down to a metre from the Thames towpath.

The ‘Barge’ has just undergone an extensive refurb with a bar, dining room and open kitchen – all opening this Saturday retaining original Victorian panelling and three open fireplaces. There’s also a reclaimed Victorian bar and taxidermy birds. Oh yes and a metre-long Thames Barge – we got there in the end.

Keep afloat with beers and lagers from Camden, Fordham & Dominion and Hogs Back Breweries but the Prosecco on tap alone is a good reason to moor here. Head chef, Pat Lynch (Bentley’s, Scotts) is cooking up seafood, brought in daily from Billingsgate Market such as whole soft shell ‘Crabacado’ Burgers with miso mayonnaise’ alongside Oxtail cottage pie or you can order home-made pasties, house-cured hams, artisan breads and cheeses at the bar.

As the summer gets into gear, look out for riverside happenings like pop-up bars and seafood stalls. Life’s a beach in Chiswick.
