The neon Open sign was lit ,so I just had to investigate.This barge shares a gangway with The Yatch moored next door,but this is the drinking venue.There is outside seating on the top deck,but descend to the hold to find the bar which is on the right side.There is no draft beer of any kind,but they do pint bottles of Guiness and London Pride (£5.15),besides mainstream lager and wine.Food still consists of tapas dishes.
The hold has a large open area infront of the bar with Eurosport screens on mute while at either end there are fitted bench seating and a few dining tables.Furniture in white and clever use of mirrors gives what may have been a dark space some character and the open portholes are only a few feed above the murky Thames water.You may need sea legs here,as the barge pitches in the swell caused by passing fast moving clippers.
Nothing here for real ale fans,but I liked the laid back vibe when quiet.However the size of the speakers may indicate that the venue can get hectic and noisy when busy later in the evening.

As said below, no ale. But even worse, no draft ale either.

Small boat moored on the Thames, has an upstairs drinking area, but the bar is downstairs. Tapas food available all day, but no real ale. A sign says that anyone unsteady on their feet will be chucked out, bit strange when you're on a boat, even though it's tied up, it still rocks with the help of passing boats.
