The Narrowboat is a hidden gem and the only pub situated directly on Regents Canal in Islington. Beautifully tucked away from the hustle and bustle for those who enjoy relaxing with friends and family. We have a fantastic range of cask ales and craft beers and spirits, as well as a beautiful selection of fine wines. Our food is seasonal and fresh with some amazing British classics and a few modern inventions of our own. Starting with brunch, all the way through to our canal inspired, favourite fish mains, and delicious desserts.
This pub is based along the canal and has fantastic views - all windows face the canal and there are additional outdoor balcony seats. It has an unusual narrow layout, true to its name, and is probably better for smaller rather than larger groups of humans and dogs because it can get cramped. Dogs are allowed everywhere. It serves the usual human pub food, with a decent range, but similar to most other pubs. They also have a good range of board games, to entertain the humans (it is hard work constantly keeping them busy!). It is extremely dog friendly. One of the waiters came and gave me a plateful of treats (at least 6 or 7!) which I greedily ate all (but 1) of before human could get a picture. That is why I look a little grumpy and serious - I don’t understand humans and their need for photographs, inhale and enjoy the food whilst you can I say! The container the food came in also became a great temporary playtoy. I give this place 3 paws, as a dog I enjoyed myself immensely, being able to look at the view of people, boats, dogs going past (and occasionally barking a hello). Two other dogs attended this pub whilst I was there, so it is popular amongst dog-kind.
