SquareMeal Review of
The Narrow Boat
Waterside views of the Regent’s Canal are one of the selling points at The Narrow Boat – a seasoned Islington boozer that has been given a breezy refit by Young’s Brewery. Snuggle by the fire in
winter or brave the top-floor balcony, armed with blankets and dinky hot water bottles; alternatively, head for intimate dining area and bar (complete with a patio doors opening onto the towpath).
The food is tailor-made for families and workers on the go, with daily brunch, Sunday roasts and kids’ menus bolstering an all-round package that takes its cue from British pub classics – think
smoked haddock with poached egg, venison cottage pie, bangers with colcannon mash or beer-battered haddock; otherwise, try the mighty Gongoozler fry-up. Young’s ales are on draught (along with
Regent’s Gold brewed specially for the pub), or you can check out the list of international wines.
