Save the barge
Great news, The Barge has been saved! Grimsby’s iconic Barge pub restaurant has been saved thanks to a wave of public support with nearly 8,500 names on a petition.
Owner Derrick Howard had been told last month he would have to move The Barge to make way for a planned £20million cinema and leisure development. But he announced today following a meeting with developers and council chiefs The Barge can stay.
