The Narrow Boat

21 user reviews

Tucked away from the hustle and bustle of Islington is The Narrow Boat, the only boozer directly on Regent’s Canal in the neighbourhood. Something of a hidden gem popular with friends and families looking to enjoy a catch-up or a meal out, there’s a cosy and intimate feel to this one, with a balcony looking out over the water probably offering the best views in the house.
