Barnes Boat Race Festival

Get ready for a boatload of fun as you take a sail on over to the best Boat Race Party in Barnes on Saturday 30th March. We are ideally located just a skip and a hop away from all the riverside action but with take away pints and tipples available from our Garden Bar, you can return to us after Oxford and Cambridge have rowed past us.

We are home to Barnes biggest and best beer garden, the ultimate way to finish your Boat Race Day where the good times keep rolling long after the sun sets. With live music keeping the beats pumping and your hips swinging, you’ll be dancing under the stars ’til dawn. And fear not, thirsty revelers – with not one, but two bars at your service, you’ll have an ice-cold pint in hand faster than you can say ‘row, row, row your boat.’

Join Our Crew

Take away drinks

Grab your crew mates and head over to Barnes best Boat Race spot, where the drinks are flowing and the vibes are buzzing! From bubbly sparkling wines to refreshing craft beers, our bar’s got it all. And hey, if you’re a fan of the Boat Race classic, Aperol’s on the menu too! Sail on over to for a sip, a laugh, and a seriously good time – we’ll be waiting to cheers with you!



We’re all about chin-dribblin’ burgers and bun times for Boat Race Day. We’re talking burgers made with only the best British beef and cooked to perfection, expertly matched cheese on top and bacon sourced from some of the best farms in the country. Pull up a chair, roll up your sleeves and get stuck in.
