What they say:

Brought to central London by the team from Open House, The Lighterman features alfresco seating and a canal-side bar looking out across the waters. The venue serves modern, British cuisine from breakfast through to dinner, with plenty of large spaces and floor-to-ceiling windows allowing an airy, easy-going ambience. Looking to unwind with after-work drinks? The Lighterman comes bearing draught beers, craft ales, seasonal cocktails and affordable wines.

What we say:

With stunning views, an award-winning design team and plenty of delicious drink and dining options, The Lighterman has everything in place to take King’s Cross by storm. Come and kick back in a minimalist space designed by the creatives at Stanton Williams, with a varied choice of beers, cocktails and wines served alongside an all-day dining menu prepared by head chef Diego Cardoso. We’ll be on the top floor wraparound terrace, where the best views of Regent’s Canal and Granary Square will be found.
