The Narrow Boat


The Narrowboat is a hidden gem and the one and only pub situated directly on Regent’s Canal in Islington. Tucked away from the hustle and bustle of Angel's Upper Street, it's the ultimate retreat for those looking to relax in a little nook or enjoy the sunshine on the terrace with friends and family.

They have a fantastic range of cask ales and local craft beers as well as moreish cocktails - they're notorious for their perfect Bloody Marys. Head Chef Andy's seasonal menus include light brunches, seafood dishes and mouth-watering Sunday Roasts, all made with locally sourced ingredients. 

Looking to host a party or little get-together? The Narrowboat has a number of spaces available to privately hire, including their balcony overlooking the canal. So whether it's a birthday celebration, work 'do' or engagement; The Narrowboat has the perfect space and packages for you.

Luigi and the team look forward to welcoming you soon.
