Floating on River Lee in Hackney Wick, one of London's trendiest districts, Barge East calls a 124-year-old barge home. Funnily enough, so do many regulars who spend a large portion of their summers wining, dining and reclining on board.

Thoroughly unique and absolutely a spot everyone should try out whenever they're in London, Barge East is full bloom out on deck. Bursting with colourful flowers and luscious greens, it could be mistaken for a tropical island from afar. If, however, the weather isn't playing far, you are invited into the cabin for a dining experience unlike any other. Fully decked out with bistro tables, rustic wooden tables and cushions aplenty, it turns out Barge East has plenty of surprises below deck. So, who's ready for a nautical and culinary adventure?

Recently awarded a coveted AA Rosette for its culinary achievements, Barge East is riding the big waves in the London dining scene. The menu is carefully curated and prepared with the utmost precision. To begin, ham hock and pistachio join forces for a sublime terrine, smoked haddock is transformed into a creamy rillette ready to spread on some chewy sourdough, and roasted carrots are paired with a pink peppercorn granola. How's that for cutting-edge gastronomy?

Bigger plates dive deeper into fine British fare. From braised ox cheek to a venison loin with parsnip and pomegranate, and spiced cauliflower with rice cakes, Barge East is rewriting the rule book in more ways than one. Are your sea legs ready for the dining experience of a lifetime?
