Emblematic of a modern pub for hanging out, it’s simply a smashing, contemporary place to pass a few hours on a pretty day. Picture windows overlook an attractive basin of the Regent’s Canal, where you can watch barges, ducks, and wealthy folks in their waterfront loft conversions. Combine a visit with a stroll along the canal’s footpath, and you’ve got one of the most romantic afternoons London has to offer. If there were pubs like this in your neighborhood, you might never go home again. (Don’t confuse this one with the Narrow, a pricey but delicious gastropub on the Thames in Limehouse.)
