    Fantastic Sunday menu. I had the pie sign a side of mash which was awesome. Roast also good. Great location, pretty view, but super busy on a Sunday would suggest book ahead. Service only ok.

    Order at the bar and they will bring your food to you. Limited seating outdoors. Sunday roasts are good, also the cod&chips. As a lighter option, I would recommend the quinoa, kale, avocado salad.

    One of the cosiest pubs around! Sunday Roast is great, the menu changes frequently and you have the canal right there - in summer people take over the whole area around the bridge. Very unique gem.

    Lovely gastropub overlooking Regents Canal in Angel, so perfect for a sunny day. Recommend the mussels & avocado/feta/hazelnut salad with a bottle of prosecco. Food (8.5/10), Service (7/10), Value (8/ Read more

    The Narrowboat has upped its game, the quality of the menu is now more in keeping with the gastropub prices - sophisticated food, well presented, generous portions - well done!

    A beautifully chilled out place that serves great food. Service is super friendly and striking that peculiar balance of being laid-back yet efficient. A perfect destination...

    We had the DNA ale, which was hoppy but still nice. The view outside and the environment inside were great. However, the pint cost £5.04 - what's with the 4p?

    Excellent sharing boards, roasts and burgers. Good stout on tap and excellent wines. Just took the parents and they loved it too!

    Stunning location and fantastic menu. Brilliant chips and burger, amazing pie and the sausage and mash is also worth a go!

    Lovely location, was a regular here for years but have decided to stop going as the prices have climbed while food has become generic - nearly £20 for a very basic pub main course...

    Try to take a table at the terrace. Quite and beautiful area. Fries are so good, and the Hamburgers are amazing.

    Pretty good selection of Young's ales. About half a dozen tables on outside balconies over looking the canal. Nice.

    Try and get a seat on the balconies over looking the canal. They also do a really good take on Fish & Chips.

    Really good Sunday roast and awesome staff. I accidentally left my phone there and one of the bar tenders dropped it to my house on his way home!

    Sat downstairs, struggled to get waiter's attention for a menu. Then waited to order. Waiter (short bloke, dark hair) busy chatting up some girls outside. I gave up and left after ten mins.
