Although it’s named after the Lord Mayor’s Barge – moored alongside in Victorian times – there’s been a tavern on this site since the 1500s. Following a timely refurb, the pub now boasts heritage
decor, a recycled 19th-century bar, open fires and alfresco seating, plus a boozy line-up of reasonably priced wines, cocktails and hand-pulled London craft ales such as Twickenham Naked Ladies and
Truman’s Runner. With a chef’s table and upstairs dining room for hire, the Barge is also serious about food, offering set lunches, brunch and dinner: anticipate beef tartare with anchovy mayo;
Thai-style broths; lamb cutlets with puréed white beans, spinach and borage flowers; ‘crabacado’ burgers, steaks, pies, sorbets, ices and rich puddings. Fans of The Beatles’ movie Help! will
already know that Ringo Starr fell through a trapdoor to face a Bengal tiger in this very pub’s cellar.
To celebrate the Year of the Woman, SquareMeal is running a series of interview profiles with top female chefs. Read here how Angela Hartnett made it to the top, launched her own group of restaurants and how she describes the secrets of her success.
