A nice river boat with ten real ales on tap. Oakham beers rule (2011).

2007: Looks like it would only hold a few dozen people from the outside, but my goodness - itís huge inside! Always 10 beers on, constantly turned over, and from interesting and novel (to me) breweries. Not all brillianty served, and the end of the barge near the loos smells like loos. Friendly staff and clients too, it appears. (I lost my wallet there, and had it returned to me very swiftly). Very convenient for the Peterborough beer festival when they split the day into 2 sessions.
2012: Beer quality has to be called into question. Nothing was actually in good form. Would be better to have 6 good beers than 10 dead ones. Was a bit narked that they didnít do food during the afternoon break of the beer festival. Even more narked that the Thai restaurant upstairs was also closed at that time. Love the atmosphere of being on a barge, but everything else starts to fall far short of ideal.

My favourite (floating) pub in Edinburgh. 10 constantly changing casks, a Thai restaurant upstairs and the added challenge of trying to play darts on a boat. My idea of a day well spent.

Beautifully converted Dutch Barge into 2 main decks with a patio seating area too. The bowels of the barge are the main drinking areas with the upper deck for eating. A vast number of beers have found there way aboard and there is always plenty of choice with a back up of Belgian bottled beers. Relaxing atmosphere at most times livening up on Fridays and Saturdays when you may be asked to pay to enter.
Update for Jul í12 - The Beer Range is no longer as comprehensive as in the past so reduced rating, plus no Belgian Beer range any longer.
