The Lighterman


The Lighterman is a pub, dining room and cocktail bar from the Open House group.

Spanning three floors that overlook Granary Square and Regent’s Canal, this is a stunning space designed by the award-winning team at Stanton Williams, who have looked to create an industrial, minimalist vibe complemented by large open spaces and floor-to-ceiling glass windows.

With a canal-side bar and an alfresco terrace overlooking the water, The Lighterman looks like a great new spot for casual drinking. Everything from draught and bottled beers, craft ales and seasonal cocktails is on the menu, and there's a particular focus on offering a carefully curated and affordable list of wines.

The team in the kitchen know a thing or two about creating sumptuous dining experiences, too. Executive Chef Diego Cardoso has experience working at sister site Percy & Founders, while Head Chef Aaron Ashmore was a semi-finalist on Masterchef back in 2012. The Lighterman serves a diverse all-day spread, with the menu featuring everything from elegant dinners to quick canal-side snacks, with a focus on top notch meats and seafood.
