The Waterway

About The Waterway

Ok, so it may not really be Venice, but this is the closest thing London has. The Waterway has spectacular views with a terrace right onto the canal so that you can watch the barges glide by. The atmosphere is comfortable and relaxed and the décor is predominantly stripped wood floors and ceilings with ultra-comfy burgundy leather seating. Even in the inclement English weather, you can enjoy a drink or even eat on the terrace thanks to the industrial sized heaters. Regulars include trendy twenty to thirty-somethings. Chef Christophe Clerget serves up an Anglo-French menu. Must tries are the Crispy Calamari with wasabi slaw and coriander oil or the Chargrilled Rainbow Trout with capers and crayfish beurre noisette.
