Genuinely tranquil alfresco dining is a rare thing in this part of town, so Canal 125’s assets deserve to be treasured. On fine days, a waterside seat is idyllic, with only the quacking of ducks to disturb the peace. Come winter, the interior has its own appeal, with stylish fittings, relaxed ambience & a menu of Med-influenced Brit food. You might nibble on game pâté with pear chutney or chilli-marinated squid with a tomato, coriander & lime salsa, before moving on to a steak sandwich, fish pie or a feta & olive salad. Drinkers are also well served with classic cocktails, affordable wines & plenty of imported beers. On Sunday mornings, bright-eyed locals head over for pancakes or eggs Benedict; others dust themselves off for a generous traditional roast.
