Formerly a watering hole for the workers who built The Grand Union Canal, The Barge showcases a typically British menu loaded with innovative nuances. Log fires and chunky oak furnishing punctuates The Barge dining area, whilst a leafy beer garden caters for al fresco dining.

Hearty Sunday roasts and trusty British dishes head The Barge Woolstone menu, and a range just for kids offers mini versions of pub favourites. Signature Vintage pies offer fillings like beef & merlot with buttered peas, while The Barge ‘Vintage classics’ menu includes lemon & garlic-roasted chicken with seasoned chips.

Paying homage to the Great British pub, the Vintage Inn bar stock includes cask-conditioned beers, real ales and a meticulously compiled wine list. Thirst-quenching offerings include seasonal non-alcoholic cocktails and freshly-pressed juices, and rich coffee is brewed freshly throughout the day.

The Barge in Milton Keynes is a 6-minute drive to the enchanting Willen Lakeside Park, whilst Milton Keynes Central Rail Station is a 9-minute drive away.

    We had a disastrous meal on Monday.The place was really smelly, the food was inedible, the staff were pleasant but all new and untrained. I asked for an ingredient not to be included in the salad and was told that the salad came that way (ie not fresh, from a packet!). They did not have the wine we ordered (on the menu!) because the bottle had run out and they wouldn’t be getting another one till Friday!
    We definitely will not be returning. Very disappointed as I had a friend come from north of England and her food was inedible...!

    Service was far to slow. We had to wait over 2 hours before our order was taken, even though we asked on several occasions.
    My beef was tough on the roast dinner. I think that my family would have left if it hadn’t been for my birthday and I didn’t want to make a fuss

    Excellent meal with very good service. Blue cheese fondue starter was delicious & enough for 2 to share!
    Husband had the sausages with bubble & squeak on special menu - very tasty & very filling.
    I had ham, egg & chips - superb chips & very tasty ham. Glad I had choice of small plate with just one egg as very generous portions.

    We had the Mothers day menu and overall the food was acceptable.
    Not the same since the previous landlord left.
