Very smart place excellent set ode and great ambiance
Lovely food and service - quite pricey for a salad with salmon added ….
Good designed restaurant with very good view, and very kind staff as well.. However, there is a big acoustic problem in design.. Noises are heard much higher because of acoustic problem.. Incredible noisy. So, when you make a dinner you need to speak very loudly to your partner :)
Please sort this problem.. :)
Considering the restrictions that the hospitality business are under, The Lighterman made light work of it - they were very very organised. The venue was very clean and service good. It was a very busy evening particularly outside - but I didn't wait long to be served. Food and drink felt a little expensive, but in line with Zone 1 pricing. I will definitely come back to enjoy this really nice bar and the good location. All in all, had a good, enjoyable evening.
I booked a table for 6 inside and 8 people turned up. Staff were hugely accommodating and sorted out an additional table immediately. Great service and overall vibe. Thank you
Great cocktails, amazing service, really enjoyed it.
Booked a table for 8 expecting us to be outside(as 8 being inside is against COVID rules and I’d used the outside check in open table) and was told we had to be inside and sit in 2 tables. Was at fist told that it was because they were allowed up to 12 inside and hadn’t specified outside in the booking. Then got a different person telling us only 6 were allowed inside and we had to sit on 2 tables and it was our fault for not specifying outside. She then tried to oust us from our table an hour before we had been told we had to leave and had to prove that we had agreed a 2.5 hr sitting. And loads of tables available outside the whole time. Rubbish.
Thanks again for a lovely lunch… This time outside, so enjoyed lunch in the Sun.
Good for a drink. Don't eat there, not worth the money. Shame cause the location is really nice. If you're looking for food, there are lots of other places with good food nearby.
Fantastic setting and great spot for drinks on the terrace!
Good for business and fun meals. not sure about families. the canalside bar looked lovely but was not open for lunch.
Lovely spot and service excellent. Food was not as good as previous visits. Had the lamb and wild garlic pie which was a bit runny and beefburger was OK but nothing special. It’s a lovely spot for drinks though and has a great vibe and friendly staff so overall experience was good. If the food gets back to previous form I’d rate it even higher.
Great service, food and drinks on a busy evening.
We had a table booked outside which was greatly helped by the warm, sunny weather. The awning provided plenty of shade without making the table seem too cold or dark.
The service was excellent - the waiting staff provided plenty of assistance in advising 2 of our party who have very specific dietary requirements and the kitchen were happy to make slight adjustments to the meals to accommodate.
The atmosphere was great - very buzzy without being so loud that you couldn't hold a decent conversation.
The drinks were slightly expensive, but hey, this is central London, what do you expect?
Burgers were great and so was our waiter service, but two of us ordered flatbreads
with prawns - they were poor - hardly any prawns - when we asked the manageress
she did not handle this in an appropriate manner.
Great menu, service, design and atmosphere.
Always a lovely experience.
Perfect table outside in shade. Excellent restaurant. Totally recommend for all.
Thank you for a great evening! We had a table at 6pm and left at 10.30. Great service lovely food and a great ambience!
Enjoyed my lunch outside. Great service and food was just what I was after..
Had the roast beef, it was the best roast I’ve ever had!!! Bit expensive but worth every penny.
Nice friendly bar, staff are happy to serve, nice choice of drinks
Food was tasty. Place really nice and well located
The booking process was easy and straightforward. On arrival, welcome was good, location was fabulous with the outside seating amazing, service and food also outstanding. Would definitely recommend and return.
Lovely food, friendly staff, just wish there was more of a breakfast menu
Hi, wonderful place & staff good.
My shrimp burger was a bit too salty. On this occasion I was very hungry & enjoying my friends company too much to say anything...
Cream I believe in Eton mess extremely sweet... The cream didn't quiet cut through the sweetness of the meringue, it was just all very sweet. Nice food presentation. Lovely place for drinks anyhow. Thank u
Good food and venue with plenty of outdoor seating. Clean toilets too !
Excellent service. Food and drink was very high quality.
Shockingly bad. Acoustics made it very difficult to talk. Friend arrived 5 mins early. Not head of party. Made to stand outside & wait. Chicken was inedible. Stone cold. Full of water. The lamb pie a thin crust covering tiny amount of lamb & lots of water. Burger burnt. No taste. The salad limp. Service rude. Rushed from the start. Rushed at the end. Actually, on reflection, I do t think I can recall such a shockingly poor restaurant/bar experience. This place used to be a lot better. Management need to sort this out quickly.
Thanks for a lovely evening
Great buzzy atmosphere!
Welcoming, courteous and friendly staff
Great selection of Gins!!!
A great way to brighten up a miserable rainy day!!!
We had a lovely lunch. Simple unchallenging menu. Food was great
We were on the entry level floor and it was very loud. People with hearing problems would have struggled.
Our waitress was lovely and we will definitely be back
Food was great, especially the Vegan options. I had booked an outdoors table for our visit. On the day we visited, it was pouring with rain so we were all crammed under the huge outdoor canopies. No-one got wet, and there are patio heaters to keep the chill off.
I think the weather impacted the service, as at times it was slow. All in all, a decent venue but the British weather let us all down.
Food and service was absolutely fantastic. Top marks, highly recommended and will definitely return again. Only reason I’m not giving full marks is we felt the table time of an hour and a half wasn’t long enough. We weren’t rushed, however having only had two courses, our time was up. If we’d wanted a coffee, dessert or another round of drinks we felt we couldn’t not to order. Two hours would have been more suitable.
All staff were really nice and accommodated our needs.
Always good and they all try and sort you out with a nice table if you ask.
I had a lovely visit to the Lighterman. The atmosphere was buzzy and social. Food was lovely and the service was fantastic. An excellent venue for meeting friends for a long overdue catch up.
It was lovely. Service was a little cold but otherwise fantastic.
Table was in a poor place, right next to huge group of loud people - way too close, felt like we couldn't hear each other. Had to wait when we got there because staff hadn't allocated a table in the right area as we were bringing a dog (we had already called ahead days before to specify we were bringing a dog). Staff were short and rude about this, made it feel like it was our fault. Wait staff seemed really busy and therefore dismissive and rushing us when it came to ordering etc. Wouldn't go back.
It’s very noisy inside. We were only a 3 and couldn’t have a conversation without shouting. We asked to move to an outside table and the staff were very accommodating. It was much nicer on the balcony overlooking the canal.
The experience was good, although there was a barking dog nearby and the bar forgot our order for about 20 minutes.
Good food however and the waiter/waitresses were friendly and attentive.
