Last week, I went with my husband for a dinner date to The City Barge located in a historic 14th century public house in Chiswick. I have heard a lot of good feedback on this place so decided to try it on my own.
The City Barge is situated on the Thames riverside, in the picturesque area of Strand on the Green, Chiswick.
We booked our table for 6:30 p.m. When we arrived, we were welcomed by a friendly waiter who took us to our table. When we sat down, only one other table was taken however within 30 minutes restaurant was full with locals. The City Barge restaurant offers a la carte menu during lunch and dinner every day and is open for breakfast on the weekends. It re-opened in May 2014 after an extensive refurbishment. When we entered this Public House, we discovered that it serves a wide range of drinks, ales and it has an extensive wine list.
To start with I decided to have some Aged Parma Ham that was served with celeric remoulade, padron peppers and toasted sour dough.
My husband had some Chicken Liver and Foie gras parfait, served with some spiced oranges and brioche. Both of our starters were delectable.
For my main, I decided to have a whole grilled lemon sole with prawns, herb mash and some greens. It was flawless.
My husband, had some rosemary glazed lamb shank with kale, neeps and tatties. His main was absolutely gorgeous and cooked to perfection.
To end our evening, I ordered some sticky toffee pudding which was heavenly and my husband had a couple of scoops of his favorite, vanilla ice-cream.
We both really enjoyed our evening at The City Barge. The service was attentive, food was delicious, prices were reasonable so I will definitely visit again soon! I would love to visit again during the summer as The City Barge has lots of space to sit outside, by the river.
