Welcome to The Bear on the Barge, Village Life in London

We are a stunning comfort food pub situated on the banks of the Grand Union Canal opposite Harefield Marina and located in the centre of the Colne Valley recreational park in between Denham and Harefield Villages, London. The Bear on The Barge has one of the largest and most spectacular beer gardens in the whole of the UK. We are also known as The Home of the Fire Ovens, where all our food is cooked over real charcoal and wood fires, which release the unique flavors in food from the high temperature cooking process. Our theatre oven makes for an exciting centre piece watching our master pizza chef Louise, hand toss the pizza doughs! Our electric roofed conservatory also makes for one of the most romantic dining locations in London and has to be experienced at night!

Eclectic Interior Design.

At The Bear on the Barge we have tried to create an unique ambience by combining fire ovens with antique furniture, distressed copper and antiqued mirrors as well as creative re-cycling of selvedge artefacts, bold vibrant colours and quirky objects’ d’art.

We think we have created a fun and vibrant place for friends and family to enjoy and we hope you agree.

Our comfort food Menu:

We prepare all our food fresh on site at the Bear on the Barge and pride ourselves on the quality of our comfort food menu.

Our Artisan pizzas are made from the ‘Mother Dough’, a natural biga which takes three days to slow prove before producing our hand thrown pizza’s! Our amazing buffalo wings are our biggest selling dish and it took us over 8 years to develop the recipe. People travel miles just to experience them! Hand pressed homemade burgers, sizzling garlic prawns, aged steaks, award winning BBQ ribs, flaming fajitas and our incredible toblerone and butterscotch cheesecake are just some of our comfort food dishes waiting for you to experience.
