After a visit to the Butt Inn in Aldermaston (not listed on BITE), our next stop was the Rowbarge. This is a popular Brunning & Price pub in a riverside location. There are a number of rooms inside, which appear primarily for diners. In addition, there is a large number of tables to the side of the river Kennet overlooking a swing bridge. There is also an outdoor barbecue. Ales were Red Cat Mr M's, Itchen Valley Pride Of The Valley, Wild Weather False Sense Of Security, Triple fff Goldfffinger, Siren White Tips & Windsor & Eton Firefly. I happened to ask if they offered a CAMRA discount. The barman had never heard of any such thing and asked if that meant he had to have his picture taken with a camera! A local at the bar soon educated him and pointed out that the pub has won CAMRA awards. Nice location. But you can tell it is a chain pub. Not one of the best Brunning & Price pubs I have visited.

Haha! If I'm in a pub and a fight breaks out, then I think readers here might be interested to know.

They might also welcome my mentioning that there were people apparently breaking the law in other ways too, if that was what I happened to see.

Yes, this is a pub site.

This is a pub site, not gossip.

I was sat in the quiet shadows of an alcove mid-afternoon, and two middle-aged suits came in, unaware of me. One was white southern African, and the other British, judging by their accents. They were nailing a business deal. It soon became clear that it related to weapons, and that it was probably illegal.

Yes, it's an interesting place.

A great option beside the Kennet and Avon canal, the downsides are an overly modernised but faux-old interior and that it gets super busy. Still, with 6 ales on tap including Red Kite from the Vale Brewery and Timothy Taylor landlord and food that looked scrumptious, it would make for a good mid point in a round walk from Thatcham or Aldermaston and as it abuts a train line, access is straightforward from anywhere.
