|Very comfortable pub, around 5 well-kept real ales (including offerings from Three Castles Brewery and West Berkshire Brewery), excellent and friendly service, and good food too. If I had any criticism it would be that the ale is on the expensive side, and the refurb and extension work has resulted in fake beams and a rather too extensive interior, I expect designed to maximise seating capacity for dining. A good pub though, and worth going to just for the ales.|

|This is an excellent pub for food, with an imaginative menu that changes daily. I've been three times now and always had an excellent meal and good service even at busy times. It's right by the canal so it's a good place to go for a walk with the family before or after eating.|
I don't understand why the rating is so low. OK, so the focus is on food but there are several well kept ales, the bar area is pleasant enough and the garden by the canal will be a great place for a beer in the summer. Drinks prices are about what I'd expect for a dining pub in Berkshire.

|Sounds like the place is back to a better standard, as I remember it being some time back.|
It always was a bit pricey though, and this perhaps accounts in part for the rating, but I'm a bit suspicious that there's some rivalry here.

|This is a very well refurbished pub on the banks of The Kennet and Avon Canal, owned by Brunning and Price, who own several other pubs around the Manchester area. http://www.brunningandprice.co.uk/rowbarge/ Despite being part of a chain, there was a welcoming smile on walking up to the bar. The staff were pleasant and had time for some brief banter. There was no waiting for a pint, even though the bar was busy and a varied selection of six beers were on tap, all being in excellent condition. We ate there and I can only say that the service was efficient and the food excellent. The gardens are extensive and well kept down to the waterís edge, where there are moorings for passing boats. Having just passed on two working boats, carrying coal, to a mooring on the other side of the swing bridge, the crew were in much need of refreshment and I have to say that we were not disappointed. I canít wait to stop there again on the way back.|

|Was in the Rowbarge and we had a great time. |
I was on the Brindle which was just right in every respect, others with us were on different beers and all were in tip top condition.
Plenty of room to sit and enjoy the inside of the pub.
The food was very good and well served.
All in all a real pleasure to go in for the evening.
Staff brilliant with a really nice attitude and the young lady serving behind the bar greeted us with a huge smile as we walked up to order our drinks.
