Welcoming Christmas Day staff, lovely location and cheery inside... efficiently run by Oliver. Starters good except monk fis cheeks too chewy, shrimp sauce good , pumpkin soup excellent .. bit more seasoning in the quinoa salad... massive portions of meat which was all good .. the duck croquettes terrific... veg particularly roast potatoes disappointing- another hour in the oven for the spuds or cut them smaller? Individual Xmas pud v good trracle tart pastry too heavy - try a bit of grated lemon in the syrup topping. Crumbles a bit rough...but good sharp fruit... mince pies v good. thanks for sorting us out... .Carmela and company and Happy New Year...we’ll be back in the New Year..

Have, for the last 20 years enjoyed visiting The Narrow Boat, when we lived in the area, it was always our preferred place. It's now always a pleasure taking clients for lunch. The staff are always engaging and very attentive. Just a few things on our last visit, after ordering our lunch, food did take over 45mins to get to the table. I had ordered the lambs liver and that was over cooked and tough. Other than that - always a joy. Visited The Narrow Boat on 2017-11-17

The place and service were faultless and we had a fab time, are happy to go back soon! Could do with a broader menu - a lamb option and another fish option (other than fried) would have been welcome. The starters were fab and offered a lot more choice than the mainsv- even though on a Sunday there were also roast options they were limited, eg 2 pork bellys n both veg being pumpkin/roast veg options, didn't allow for breadth.

Quite nice atmosphere. Terrible food, more or less inedible. Completely overpriced given what it amounts to. Neither if us were able to finish our mains - not because there was too much of it: it just tasted disgusting Visited The Narrow Boat on 2017-11-02

The Narrow Boat is a delightful pub with friendly accommodating staff, really tasty and good quality food and a good selection of drinks and beers on tap. We had a lovely evening out saying goodbye to our Boss. We enjoyed ourselves so much that one of the team has already informed me that he went back on Sunday with his partner to enjoy a Sunday Roast there (which he said was also excellent). The thing that we also liked was that one couple could bring their baby and she slept in her pram so the pub wasn't too rowdy or loud. Highly recommended. Visited The Narrow Boat on 2017-10-26

I do apologise for this. We usually have vegetarian gravy available, my only assumption is that we must have run out on the day. I can only apologise and we will make sure we have extra in future.

I was throwing a surprise party for my husband at the pub and the staff were wonderful throughout. When I arrived they quickly jumped in and even helped me blow up decorations, continuously asking if there was anything else I needed. I had also brought a birthday cake which they let me store in one of the pub fridges. The staff were very attentive and accommodating to our party. Visited The Narrow Boat on 2017-09-30

We were looking for a quiet corner just off the beaten track and following recommendations from friends booked Saturday lunch for four at the Narrow Boat.When booking we asked for a window seat and one was reserved. From the recommendations we expected (hoped for) a reasonable choice and decent cooking. We were given an excellent selection to choose from and, having all chosen differently, anticipated an opportunity to sample each others ! The food was everything we hoped for and more. A bit of a wait for the main course but they were, not surprisingly, busy and the ambience made the slight delay a pleasure. The service was gentle but professional - no "and how are we enjoying the food today?".The table was ours for 3 hours and, even though we were close to the limit, no hints were dropped. So, lovely setting, good choice, excellent food and service. Oh and the price? Not expensive and very good value. Tell your friends or just keep this gem to yourself !!

I had dinner with a friend this week and we couldn't believe how terrible the staff were. They ignored us throughout the meal and so we had to keep asking them to serve us. They also had no knowledge of the menu. In the end we waited so long to pay that we had to go to the bar to ask for the bill- terrble. The food was fine but overpriced. There was loud music playing so it was v hard to have a conversation. We won't be going back again. Visited The Narrow Boat on 2017-08-02

Had book the first floor table with 2 weeks advance and double checked, when I got there they only had the GF table available for the hours I had reserved... I guess I should have been told at least. Also the payment was a bit clumsy at the end they lost control on who made payments but we were OK in using the deposit to complete payment...should have been a bit more organised - or maybe I should have controlled the bill & payments. Food was good and well served, place amazing as usual and - beside not having many choices - deserts were very good! Thanks Visited The Narrow Boat on 2017-07-23

We have visited the Narrow Boat before and have always loved the service, atmosphere and food. However, on this occasion, it was quite the opposite. Food was not up to the usual standard (chips were either undercooked or incredibly salty, fish was overcooked and lamb was very tough -to give just a few examples). It was clearly a busy evening, however, this reflected in some of the waiting staff who did not have time to honour some requests and when they did - were not happy about doing so. Having said this - staff seemed to change half way through our meal and the waitress who served us at the end was lovely. It was just all a little (unusually) disappointing.

The food was so poor that I cant give it many stars and I sadly cant recommend it for food. The staff are all very helpful and really nice, and the venue is great . The food is a total let down. Great looking menu but badly cooked, and poorly seasoned. Even the salads taste weird. True pub food such as burgers or fish and chips are the only dishes to go for here. A great shame. Find a chef who can cook what they promise! Visited The Narrow Boat on 2017-07-05

Understandably not their fault but the toilets were broken and they couldn't serve and potentially needed to close we waiting 40 mins and moved on. We were disappointed to not be offered a discount or a free drink for a return visit. Visited The Narrow Boat on 2017-07-02

We arrived on time for our booking, a table for 5 at 12:30 on Sunday 2-July 2017. We were told that your restrooms were all broken and as a result you were about to stop serving food and possibly close. This left is at with nowhere to eat at peak time in Islington. Luckily the Duke of Cambridge was able to take us and he had an amazing meal. When we left the Duke of Cambridge, we walked past the Narrow Boat and saw that you were still open, still serving food and when we asked, your toilets were also working just fine. My best guess is that you either didn't want us there specifically, or you couldn't handle the amount of business so made up a story to get rid of a few tables that you couldn't easily serve. Unprofessional. But the upside is that we discovered the Duke of Cambridge which is amazing. Visited The Narrow Boat on 2017-07-02

Location is beautiful along the canal but the food is mediocre. We ordered the meat sharing platter to start which was well overpriced, at £25 I expected more than 10 or so thin slices of small salami. I ordered the fish and chips. The fish was burnt and chips mealy. When I pointed out that the fish was burnt I got a lecture from the waitress on how it got burnt (an explanation of the Mallard reaction :/ ) rather than just replacing it. In the end they replaced it but I was made to feel that they were doing me a favour. Definitely won't be going back there for food again but maybe for just drinks on the balcony with a smaller group. The pimms was very good! Visited The Narrow Boat on 2017-07-01

I'm baffled that I can only have a burger well done due to local borough regulations. I had a burger pretty rare in Islington in many pubs and restaurants. How do they manage? Visited The Narrow Boat on 2017-06-24

Reply from The Narrow Boat

We apologise that you were not able to have your burger as preferred... As we cook our burgers with minced beef meat we have to adhere to food safety regulations, most burger places that offer different levels of burger cooking will use minced steak meat similar to steak where it is able to be cooked to preference. If you like something pretty rare feel free to try our 28 day aged Angus steak anyway you like.

Good was good when it arrived. BUT.. shambolic service. Left arm did not know what right arm.was doing. In a very peak busy period do not put new staff (very sweet and nice) who do not speak any English on waitressing duty. Our order was.completely ballsed up.. Drink ordered not arrived, had to ask three times. My moan course did.nt arrive.along with the others and then clear that the restaurant had forgotten my order. No offer to reduce bill and it was too hot to complain directly to manager. It would have taken probably 30 minutes to see someone anyway. I've been a waitress in many busy restaurants. We spent £150 for four people. Get your flow on!!! Won't eat there again . Drinks yes which I will purchase direct from.bar. Visited The Narrow Boat on 2017-06-18

Wonderful location and venue for a sunny afternoon. Food was sub-par and found the waitresses very rude. The staff accidentally brought out something incorrectly to my table of 10 (we were all sharing) and then retrospectively tried to charge us for food we hadn't ordered. Caused a scene and definitely detracted from the evening. Visited The Narrow Boat on 2017-06-16

Food for most of party was fine but on the expensive side. One main was quite unpleasant but we complained at the time and it was swiftly removed from the bill. Bar one member of staff the service was poor. Some plates cleared while we were still eating (we weren't asked), and the others were then left for another 15 minutes. We had hoped to order desserts but waited so long that we asked for the bill instead and left no gratuity. Disappointing. Visited The Narrow Boat on 2017-06-17

I use to go to this pub 7 years ago and certainly felt different this time, unfortunately not for the best reasons. Food was average and wine was not chilled. The waiter tried to justify the wine wine and pro seco temperature by saying that all their wine in the fridge was like that and offered to bring ice cubes to make it better!!!!! not very impressive in wine knowledge either.

Worst service we have ever encountered. They got the order wrong but couldn't recook as they had run out of steak so we were forced to order burgers. They ran out of steaks on a Friday at 7pm. Oh, and the fishpie too. As for burgers, one of us asked for them without cheese. Once came out an hour before the other one, yes an hour, and when asked if they could check on the outstanding burger, the waitress answered "I've just come off my break and cannot get any sense out of the kitchen". Ummm...... We had the foresight to order dessert when ordering the dinner as we knew they were low on stock. They bought that out just as my partner was tucking into her burger. Waitress then got annoyed that we would not accept them and said "but you ordered that burger over an hour ago". Again, ummmmm. Fairs fair, they offered us 20% staff discount. Oh no wait, not good enough frankly. Had to press the point that we were not willing to pay as after two and half hours, nothing had gone well and everyone was annoyed. They then asked us if we would be back again. Frankly, I spent the rest of the weekend avoiding the pub and won't be going back there. Shame. Setting is ace but the service was more than shoddy and a real let down. Only getting one star as I am not allowed to post with zero. Visited The Narrow Boat on 2017-05-26

A perfect way to end our London stay - a walk along the canal to The Narrowboat and a very good dinner. We had a lovely table for two overlooking the canal. The hostess was gracious and friendly and our wait person Deborah was delightful. It almost didn't matter how good the food was (and the lamb roast with mint sauce was exceptional) because timely good service and a lovely location went a long way toward making us happy.

Have eaten here a number of times and always enjoyed it. Unfortunately, today was a very disappointing experience. Fish & chips not available because of late supplier delivery. Two of 4 mains delivered to table luke warm. Spiced cauliflower main was disappointing - its small size better suited for appetiser. Our server did her best, but overall atmosphere and service was very confused, frenetic and harried. Not the enjoyable and leisurely canal side lunch we'd expected or hoped. Very disappointed.

As always the food here is great. The service has never been amazing but this visit was particularly disappointing. The only way to get hold of the staff was to chase them round the restaurant. One of our guest out of the 11 of us dining didn't receive his roast dinner until the other 10 of us were half way through out meals. Coffee's took around 35-40 minutues but the dessert came within 10. One of the ladies was smiley enough, the other didn't look like she wanted us there at all. Sadly we wont be dining here again.

One Of your staff was very helpful and he did refund us for some of the food. It's a real shame as I have been before and had an amazing roast.

We always love coming to the Narrow Boat. Service and food are always wonderful. However, this time the service was actually very slow - nearly 15 minutes to get drinks. Over 30-40 minutes to receive our food from the time we ordered. I recommended the burger to 2 of my friends (it's usually great!). Although, this time it was really overdone and very dry. We didn't complain at the time since I've previously not had any issues and thought it would be way more hassle to wait another 30 mins for our food and make everyone wait. I'll be sure to give it another try as I do love the atmosphere.

The food was fine. Very basic pub food. The service - well, what can I say? Firstly, I was given a dirty glass. When I requested a clean glass, the waiter handed it over to me with his fingers on the rim. Not very sanitary. The drinks they had on offer were basic - no herbal tea nor decaf coffee. However, I enjoyed being on the canal and the pub itself has a nice feel. So, I'll go back - however, this time no food, beer only, and I'll ask the waiter to handle the glass differently (from the base, please). Visited The Narrow Boat on 2017-01-04

the service and food were good, but was extremely disappointed that we were not seated in the area that I had specifically requested. we will need to consider whether we'll return another year, as the seating area is extremely important to us, and the fact that it was not taken into account shows poor consideration Visited The Narrow Boat on 2016-12-20

Hi, I've been to the NB before and its was good. On Xmas day it was bit below expectations. Firstly my order took three phone calls to get right and it was still wrong on the placement card on the table. We didn't get the meet & greet Proseco- and had to ask for it when sat down. The soups were truly awful- we sent two back- it was like lemon medicine- the worst I've ever had. The replacement croquettes were also tasteless and why put Juniper (?) berries with it, they taste like poison , so bitter. The 'green' garnish was also so bitter to taste, it was unpleasant. It felt like the chef was trying too hard to be inventive and got it wrong. The main course was excellent! The figgy pudding was served cold which wasn't right. One other thing that spoilt the experience- I was sat opposite the waste bin so had to watch all the scraps being tipped into it, it is really unpleasant and this should not be visible to diners. Sorry its a poor review but there were so many things wrong . The staff were really nice and friendly. Best wishes David Visited The Narrow Boat on 2016-12-25

The only reason I gave 4 stars is because our booking got mixed up with someone else's and we were told that we had not ordered what we did but in the end it got sortedou, but It kind of spoilt the beginning of our meal. Visited The Narrow Boat on 2016-12-25

Booked the large table downstairs for a birthday surprise dinner for 9 people! Very relaxed place, lovely staff and lovely large portions of food, couldn't have picked a better place! Especially so close to Christmas everything was perfect! Thank you so much! Visited The Narrow Boat on 2016-12-22

Excellent service and great food. A big big thanks to the assistant manager Jenny for sorting a tricky issue. Her help and bubbly outgoing personality made our Christmas lunch. We will be back Visited The Narrow Boat on 2016-12-20

Where to start - the food was very sub par, the nut roasts we ordered were hardly touched, not very nice at all. All meals were supposed to have roast potatoes, all but 2 out of 11 had them, we had to ask for a bowl of spuds! One of the waitresses was really nice, the other just really didn't want to be there and huffed every time she came over. The crumble desserts were inedible, and most of them went back untouched. We felt that the food wasn't worth the money we paid (and it was a lot). We were really looking forward to having an enjoyable Christmas dinner but left hungry and angry. Won't be returning Visited The Narrow Boat on 2016-12-19
