Drinks with a friend
Love this place, great drinks, great atmosphere and loads of space. We only ate some snacks, but chips were great - always a good benchmark!
Ultra-high prices, fairly standard food. Excellent English ciders and wonderful views from the outside terrace.
It’s very cold with the door banging here there and everywhere. It’s was cold inside.
I was really disappointed with The Lighterman. We picked this venue because it’s website clearly states that all outside areas are heated & covered but that was not reality. When we arrived the table we were given had no working heaters. I then asked to be moved which wasn’t easy but the heaters were also barely working. It’s a lovely venue but they shouldn’t advertise that they have heaters.
Great food service and setting. We had a great night and felt safe with the distancing rules.
Second time I've been here and both times food was poor quality & very overpriced. Nice location though
Good food and service as always. Glad the crispy squid is still on the menu!
Great place to enjoy a meal with my brother! Food was excellent, cocktails even better. Outdoor terrace a bit chilly - the heaters could do with a bit more oomph! Will be back again.
Ambience is amazing. And the vibe is relaxed.
Staff are great. We had our dog and they were brilliant giving him treats. Our flat bread wasn't as expected and they changed it straight away. We love it here, but the only negative is that the food is overpriced for what it is and should be £3-4 cheaper. £23 for roast beef and £9.50 for a small flat bread. Apart from that it's great place to spend the afternoon or evening.
Great location with traditional and unique options on the menu
Our table was not completely covered and we had to move a lot to accommodate other bookings.
Great service and staff - thanks for helping us have a great afternoon!
Lovely table with views over the canal. Fantastic service, very friendly and attentive. Food was nice too.
Very poor service. We were rushed from start to finish and yet they were very slow to bring drinks. Have your cake and eat it much! Food good but overpriced.
Feels like a place trading on its location.
Hey DavidF, I am sorry to hear about your experience with us. Can you please let me know what name your booking was under so that I can look into this and see why this happened. Thanks,
Great option for group drinks within the rules of covid!
I’ve had great experiences at Lighterman and so was disappointed. I know you guys are doing your best under hard conditions tho so I hope this feedback is helpful not a moan! The burgers were over cooked, the sweet potato fries cold, the champagne was flat so had to be changed and the service kept telling us things were closing so it felt very rushed (even tho we booked for 8.30), It’s quite an expensive restaurant so I hope it was just an off day. Thanks
Hey Katie, thank you for getting in touch. Of course we take all feedback constructively as we constantly aim to improve ourselves. I am sorry that there were a few issues with your evening! Unfortunately, we have this 10pm curfew, and make it our duty to inform customers when certain areas of the restaurant will be closing, so that there is no disappointment when you try to order, but are not allowed. I do hope that this will not put you off, and we will see you again soon!
Great venue for outdoor seating and great table service and food is great
Seated outdoors on wet seating without heating. Tables of people just drinking had better seats than us who were attending for dinner and drinks.
Veggie options limited to 1/2 options, with the burger being mushy and fell apart quickly. Sweet potato fries were nice.
Hey Robd, I apologise that your table was not up to standard. I would like to ask if you had a reservation with us or came as a walk in? Many thanks,
Great stop off on a rainy afternoon after a walk up the canal from Camden. Food is fab & we had a view over Granary Square from the top floor.
Hey SandraC, thank you for taking the time to leave a great review! We hope to see you again soon!
It is a great venue. Good views over the canal. Good food and drink. Whats not to like.
The food tasted great but some menu items were not available, and this was not pointed out until we were ready to order. The setting was great and servers were all great otherwise.
Hey Helenab, I am sorry that this was not mentioned to you sooner to avoid disappointment, and hope that you could find something on our menu that you enjoyed! I will pass on this feedback for the team! Thanks!
Nice outdoor dining option if you're looking to meet up with friends. The flatbreads were good (not too dissimilar to pizzas) especially the artichoke and spicy sausage option. Good, friendly service.
Hey Jaderella, I am happy to hear that you had a great time with us the other day! We hope to see you again soon!
Great place for dinner and drinks. Lovely service.
Food was really poor. Everything was tepid, greasy and just not very nice. Cocktails were lovely though.
Hey Lammy, I am sorry to hear that you did not enjoy the food. Can you please let me know exactly what you had so that I can look into this. Thanks.
Great food and atmosphere (if a little loud) Amazing and friendly staff!
Hey Roomuser100, thank you for taking the time to leave a wonderful review! I am glad to hear you had a great time and will pass on the feedback to the rest of the team!
Nice views, nice food and enjoyed Eat out to help out discount ,)
Great service. Arrived early and our table was ready. Disappointed with the limited menu but understandable due to the pandemic.
We really enjoyed our meal here. Staff were excellent especially with our 11 month old baby. They were really friendly and helpful. Also very good selection of London IPAs. View was lovely over the canal. Look forward to returning.
Hey LukeC, happy to hear you and your family had a great time with us! We understand it's not the easiest going out with a young child, and happy to hear that we could make you all feel comfortable! We also look forward to seeing you again!
Great atmosphere. Quick service, polite happy waiters
Best roast I’ve had in a long time 👌👌👌 and great views and service
Hey MeghanC, thank you for taking the time to leave a great review, and glad to hear you enjoyed our lovely roasts! I will be sure to pass on the great feedback to the rest of the team!
Went for a Sunday roast and was not disappointed! Delicious roast chicken and veg with wonderful cranberry sauce.
Hey Anon, I am very happy to hear that our Sunday Roasts hit the spot! We hope to see you again soon!
Lovely meal, relaxed service even though there was a time limit on the table. We had a great time.
Hi NiceCuppa, happy to hear that you didn't feel rushed and had a great time with us! We look forward to welcoming you again soon!
Very good food which is why we keep coming back. Good to see some additions to the menu. For regulars, ie most Saturdays to do the weekly shop at W, this is appreciated. Staff are excellent. Very impressed with attention to detail and speed of service.
Hey Johnm, thank you for taking the time to leave a great review, and I am glad to hear that you keep coming back! We hope to see you again soon!
The views and ambience at the Lighterman are great. It's located next to the canal and close to Kings X station. I was worried that it wouldn't be very busy due to the COVID restrictions, and was so pleased that so many people are still getting out and enjoying restaurant life. Food was great, wine is a bit on the pricey side, service was excellent and the staff did all the due diligence to ensure we felt safe.
Hi ClaireM, we are happy to be able to create a sense of normality in these strange times. I am pleased to hear that you enjoyed yourself, and we look forward to welcoming you again soon!
The table was not covered, as requested. It was also unstable and hard to keep the drink on! Chicken breast very salty and expensive. The staff was nice and friendly but they didn’t move us closer to the heating as requested days in advance.
Hi Lorena, I am sorry to hear that you most recent visit did not live up to expectations. Unfortunately, there were no notes on your web booking for any special requests, and I would like to know if you spoke previously on the phone with any of our reservations team? If there was a miscommunication on our part I would like to know, so that we can make sure this does not happen again. Thanks
Great pub with friendly service and good atmosphere. Just need a few more heaters outside for winter!
Hey Joshua, thank you for leaving a great review! I will be sure to pass on the feedback to the rest of the team!
This was a great option for the new Tier 2 restrictions. We had a lovely table by the canal with heaters. Would definitely recommend!
Hey Anon, glad to hear you had a great time with us on our Canal Side Bar. We hope to see you again soon.
Good venue for meeting up with friends outdoors in the evening. The food remains great! Solid CoVID précautions in place.
