The Rowbarge, has been serving the needs of travellers and locals alike for hundreds of years. It is a truly characterful traditional pub.

There are six different rooms with nooks and crannies aplenty, six different cask ales on tap, a decent wine list and a shelf crammed with malts. And most important of all, you'll find a warm welcome from a friendly crew who'll enjoy looking after you.

The pub sits on the banks of the River Kennet and is suurounded by a beautiful large garden with a patio area. It's the perfect place to bask to watch river life go by and enjoy a spot of 'al fresco' drinking and dining.

We look forward to welcoming you,
Owen and the Rowbarge team.
