A three roomed riverside pub,The main bar room is carpeted with tables and chairs spread about the room and bar stools at the bar itself,there is also a raised stage area in one corner for regular music nights. There is an adjoining smaller lounge type room with sofas and continuing on through this you come to a larger third room home to a couple pool tables along with table football.I was impressed to find six hand pumps on the bar dispensing Dartmoor Jail Ale, Andwells King John, Ascot On The Rails and Surrey Hills Shere Drop one was vacant. There were many beer clips decorating one wall as testament to a good and interesting beer policy.
I had intended come here to catch the second half of the Chelsea v Arsenal game on my way home from work, but as I found out it was BT sports only so Rugby was on.
Despite the beer possibilities here I'm not totally convinced about this place as a pub, it a feel more akin to a club for me,It certainly didn't move me enough to write a poem about it as it did for Philip below, but I'll give it another try sometime.

Great pub, just by the River Wey Navigation. Parking available. Friendly staff. Best news, 6 real ales on tap. liked it so much, wrote this:

Row Barge

The Row Barge pub stands alone
Beside the River Wey
If you are in the area
Why not pop in one day
You will find a smart bar
With walls of brick and wood
They have a good range of ales
And a variety of food
Outside there is seating
Next to the River Wey
Just in case the weather forecast
Grants us a sunny day
If you like to hear live music
They have that at weekends
So come and enjoy the atmosphere
And bring along your friends.
