The Narrowboat

The Narrowboat

Part of our Best Pubs in London microsite. See if we've included your local.

Given the name, it's no surprise to learn that The Narrowboat is hard up against the Regent's Canal. Inside, too, the pub feels somewhat barge-like, with a long, thin bar area and a lower deck kitted out for dining. All that's missing for that authentic barge ambience — thankfully — is a failing electric heater and the smell of bilge.

Unlike many pubs that have taken the 'gastro' route, The Narrowboat feels equally comfortable as a drinking den — if you're lucky with the seating — you can pass many a happy hour gazing at the canal from the balcony.

Beer is by Young's, with a trio of rotating ales from other sources. Look out for the salty old sea dog peering out the window on Baldwin Terrace.
