The Lighterman

The Lighterman

Modern European | North London

A large three storey bar and restaurant from the Cubitt House group, this has a super location, overlooking the canal. It's said to be one of the most popular places on Granary Square at any time of the year - but it really comes into its own in summer with extensive outside space.

"The staff are friendly and energetic; the building is as airy and informal inside as it’s heavy and portentous outside; the clientele seems happy, relaxed and somehow classless, like figures in an architectural drawing. " READ REVIEW

"Don’t go to The Lighterman for surprises. Do go for swish surroundings and attentive staff – they were only too happy to re-seat us out in the sunshine on the terrace, overlooking the fountains of Granary Square." READ REVIEW
