Rowbarge Woking

Refurbishment Planned!

Once refurbished, The Rowbarge will be both a haven for locals and a destination for out of town visitors. The renovation will be all-encompassing, creating a beautifully modern finish with a greatly enhanced dining capacity and 10 boutique letting rooms.

The Rowbarge is located on the busy St Johns Road in Woking, with many of the locals living within walking distance. This excellent location, combined with new attractive external signage, will attract a large and lucrative market.

A complete refurbishment of The Rowbarge will create a wonderful space for customers to enjoy the exciting new food menu, or enjoy a quiet drink in the more intimate snug bar area. The Rowbarge is primed to be an exciting fusion of a village local, as well as a destination for tourists looking for a relaxing place to enjoy a wonderful meal.
