Diner Reviews
  • "Very nice food and view, rather too noisy due to happy diners. We all had the fish and chips, excellent 'mushy' peas, mushed but fresh."
    dined on 17/08/2014
  • "Very nice restaurant the food its great and the service its good"
    dined on 17/08/2014
  • "Such a disappointment! Food was cold and not cooked properly. Service was very slow and not up to our expectations."
    dined on 16/08/2014
  • "We had dinner here on a Friday evening. The location is great, with sweeping views of the Thames and, on a summer evening, it's a lovely place to eat. We had a very nice cocktail to start. The food was generally good, although the kitchen had been a little too liberal with the salt on a couple of our dishes. Service was very friendly and attentive, but it was incredibly slow. We arrived at 6pm and there was only one other party in the dining room. Our first course didn't arrive until 6.45 and, when our dessert order still hadn't turned up at 8pm, despite having been ordered 20 minutes previously, one of our party had to leave. This was irritating as we had deliberately chosen an early dining time precisely for this reason."

  • "The service was very friendly and food was good! Really worth visiting, with a nice view to the Thames."

  • "Fantastic Sunday Roast.....Pork Loin with exceptional crackling and big portions!!!"
    dined on 10/08/2014
  • "We had a great Sunday lunch here. Service was great and we managed to get a good table overlooking the river. One of the best sirloin roasts I've had."
    dined on 10/08/2014
  • "Was able to enjoy a lovely meal in the conservatory. Lovely view of the Thames, which added to the experience, and the waiter was very attentive."
    dined on 09/08/2014
  • "There were 5 of us and we greatly enjoyed our evening at The Narrow, overlooking the river while enjoying an extremely well prepared meal from an interesting menu served by friendly staff. The restaurant is attached to a pub, which was quite busy being 8.30 on a Friday evening and close to the business district of docklands. Nevertheless, our waitress was very tolerant to the fact that we wanted a relaxed pace to the meal because one of our party had called to say that they were going to be very late. We felt welcome and unhurried, which always makes the food taste even better."
    dined on 08/08/2014
  • "I have had my first year marriage anniversary at the Narrow. The food was fresh and extremely good and the customer service was unbelievably nice. Finally at the end of the dinner they also offered a plate with "happy anniversary" written with the ice cream! We will definitely came back and I will speak about my great experience with all of my friends and colleagues. Thank you very much, Marco and Pam"
    dined on 08/08/2014
  • "I like the place, the food. The view to the river, for me its perfect, because it's so beautiful but not too elegant that you can't enjoyed. For me is perfectly fancy!!!!! Thanks"
    dined on 02/08/2014
  • "The food was not specially good and way too overpriced. Service wasn't great, when we arrived no one was there to great us, we had to get someone to place us. Moreover, there were many mistakes with the waitress that kept on bringing the wrong orders to our table. Ambiance extremely bad, bad lighting, our table was stuck between 2 tables and there was barely any place to move and no intimacy. Overall experience was extremely dissatisfying and we felt as this restaurant was a scam. We don't understand how this restaurant has Gordon Ramsey's name on it."
    dined on 01/08/2014
  • "Great place, with a fabulous outdoor terrace. Lovely food"
    dined on 26/07/2014
  • "I join in the sentiment of others. Service was not up to the standard of this restaurant's benefactor. Nor was the food. The view is not worth the sacrifice for what one would should receive."
    dined on 26/07/2014
  • "After having been to this restaurant a couple of times in the past and having made some rather good experiences, we were really looking forward to return to The Narrow after two years of abstinence. Not quite sure what happened in the meanwhile, but the evening was quite a disappointment. Despite of having booked a table four weeks in advance and having asked for a table at the riverfront, were given a table in a room which has been more like a pub-style drinking area in the past. Rather hot day and around 8pm, air was still hot and sticky. No ventilation. Asked for appropriate table, turned down. On my place, no napkin, no cutlery. Asked for cutlery, still not given napkin. Asked for mayonnaise, was given ketchup. Never again!"
    dined on 26/07/2014
  • "We were lucky to chose a beautiful sunny Saturday for our lunch and it was perfect to eat on the terrace overlooking the River Thames with our guests from overseas. The service was excellent, staff happy to move us when the sun moved and we became too hot!!. We thoroughly enjoyed our food which was plentiful and well presented. Will return soon."
    dined on 26/07/2014
  • "My husband and I went here for lunch after seeing monty python the evening before and thoroughly enjoyed our meal. I had the yellow fin tuna and it was stunning in taste and appearance. The view was lovely and the staff were very helpful and courteous. I shall definitely be back when I am next down in london"
    dined on 21/07/2014
  • "A lovely way to spend a summer evening. Ayala champagne followed by fish and chips with a great British white wine (Chapel Down Bacchus) The service was friendly and attentive and the river view is wonderful."
    dined on 19/07/2014
  • "Very average pub food, we were fooled by the celebrity chef association but certainly not obvious in terms of food, seemed more like heated up frozen meals. Our table was booked at 6pm, the first booking for the evening service and as we were looking at the specials board 2 of the 4 main courses were being taken off! We were able to order them still but why not take them off before guests sit down as not a good first impression. Out of the 6 meals only one could be described as good which was the tuna steak. On a more positive note the location is great, right on the river with wonderful views both ways so worth a visit just for this."
    dined on 18/07/2014
  • "Came here with my sisters for a family get together, very good food im no foodie but it was fantastic. Staff very welcoming and attentive this was on a saturday night and they were busy but service never slipped. Was a bit worried that the narrow may have been a bit pretentious but it was not in the least good food good service ok your gonna pay for it but for that special get together well worth it, i will be back."
    dined on 12/07/2014
  • "Great food and service in a lovely setting, 5 of us ranging in age from 12 to 79 all thoroughly enjoyed our meal. We will visit again next time we are in the area"
    dined on 12/07/2014
  • "Overall, a very good experience. Minor grumbles - tables too close so every time the person next to me at the adjoining table moved my chair was jolted (also, hearing too much of that table's conversation than I would have wished) probably caused by several larger parties being in the and the sun was too intense when sitting by the window (better shading required). Food was delicious, well presented and staff attentive in spite of the restaurant being quite full with larger tables. The ever-changing scene on the river, with plenty of activity, made for a great backdrop."
    dined on 12/07/2014
  • "I took my mother here for her birthday and found the view, service and food to be perfect for such an occasion. We really enjoyed the experience."
    dined on 07/07/2014
  • "We have eaten here before of an evening which was lovely. But we decided to have a late lunch this time round... Arrived at 2pm, sat in the conservatory. Although it wasn't a beautiful sunny day, it was still very bright and warm as its right along the Thames. We love this place and will keep coming back and introducing new people. At least once a month..."
    dined on 05/07/2014
  • "We came here with my elderly parents for a treat for them. They had travelled down from Manchester and I have to say they loved the whole experience and are telling everyone how good it was. Needless to say we loved it also."
    dined on 03/07/2014
  • "Over looking the river was lovely, service was good, staff were very efficient and friendly, but the starter of two scallops with a minute piece of haggis for over 10£ was a little steep and the main course was so salty that I couldn't eat it. We did get free desert, but I would have preferred a good main course."
    dined on 26/06/2014
  • "Excellent food, excellent service, a wonderful way to spend an evening. The bar staff were also very knowledgable, creating a cocktail off the back of me listing a few of my favourite spirits. Highly recommended"
    dined on 23/06/2014
  • "After booking this for my wife's Birthday, and being our second visit, we left feeling very disappointed. Arrived early for a drink, and found they charge full pint prices for only 2/3 of a pint. We ordered the Sunday roast. My wife had the pork and I had the beef. What a mistake. The roast potatoes were spongy and dry as if they had been standing and then heated in microwave. The yorkshires were also spongy and burnt. Not one staff member checked to see how meal was, and when I did tell the manager, they brought out more potatoes. This was after we finished our dinner. Deserts were not much better. Dry and tasteless. Think chef likes microwave a little too much. Expected so much better with a name like Gordon Ramsay. Won't be going back."
    dined on 22/06/2014
  • "While the food was very good, the service was too pushy and a bit unfriendly. I've been there now a couple of times and it has always been the same..."
    dined on 22/06/2014
  • "This was the third time I'd eaten at The Narrow,and the service has gone downhill. We had to prompt the waiters to take our orders,top up our tap water (which they failed to do even though we asked three times...) and couldn't find anyone to ask for the bill. The food was fine,but not as good as previous times. After specifically asking if the roast pork came with crackling,it arrived with about 1cm worth of it which was disappointing as it was so good! The location is lovely and has potential to be as good as it had to be-just need to make the food a little more special again and improve service."
    dined on 22/06/2014
  • "From a Gordon Ramsey restaurant I was expecting a little more. Excellent restaurant if you would go for sure only with fish and chips, the best in London."
    dined on 21/06/2014
  • "The service we recieved was outstanding. The food was very good however could have done with a bit more on the plate."
    dined on 21/06/2014
  • "We had a booking but were refused a seat with river view despite the restaurant being very empty and tables available. And told before we sat down when we had to leave our table by, which we could have done without - hardly makes you feel welcome. Menu not very varied but food was good. Choice of ales more limited since last visiy which was disappointing. Overall good experience though - I guess someone has to sit in the back, and service was good."
    dined on 20/06/2014
  • "We had a late 2.30pm lunch here, it was a very quiet Friday and the restaurant was almost empty but despite this the staff were very slow to take our drinks order and we ended up having to order all at once to ensure we were fed, it was not easy getting the lone waitress back to the table from time to time and then someone started to remove speaker and power cabling from the window edge next to us while we were still dining, poor considering that the food is not at all inexpensive, but on a positive note the food was very good indeed, in fact the best fish and chips I have ever had (albeit for 17 quid). The wine list is good and not too expensive and the views of the Thames are of course fantastic even in this more residential stretch."
    dined on 20/06/2014
  • "Fantastic setting. Terrible food and service. Come here for a drink but not for a meal. The staff also kept telling us that we could not sit in most of the nice areas even though they were totally empty for the whole time we were there."
    dined on 19/06/2014
  • "My wife and I chose the Narrow for dinenr before a gig at the nearby Troxy venue. We were given the prime table next to the river and on a fine evening I can't imagine many places in London that are nicer. The food was of excellent standard but the portions were very mean on a couple of dishes. In particular, I ordered the monkfish wrapped in parma ham for a main and what I got was about as thick and long as a cigar. The 3 speaks of asparagus did not make up for this. And for £17 i would have expected a more generous portion. Other dishes were fine and generally the food and service were of a very high standard. Just order soem chips if you go for the monkfish."
    dined on 18/06/2014
  • "I requested a nice table as it was a birthday surprise for my partner, and I wasnt dissappointed. Sat in the convervatory overloooking the river, and even had a happy birthday icecream with a candle presented to us. Delicious food! Service was very polite and friendly, sometimes difficult to get their attention, but this didn't affect us."
    dined on 18/06/2014
  • "This restaurant used to offer fine gastronomy last time I visited about two years ago. This time the sizes of starters were rather economical. I had specifically asked for my tuna steak to be rather raw, it came fully cooked but still lukewarm. Chips on the side were nice at the top, but just the burnt smalls at the bottom. And my double espresso was a coffee, rather than a taut espresso, way too long. Service was attentive, and they did change all the items we complained about. But the food still was uninspiring, not the standard you'd expect at this price level."
    dined on 16/06/2014
  • "Used to love coming here for Sunday lunch until weekend just gone. I emailed them a few days prior to inform them my mum is vegan and would this be a problem they said no they could amend meals to suite her. We got there and was told she could have a roast dinner but without meat and Yorkshire as the potatoes and veg were not roasted in animal fat so my mum ordered this and almost an hour later she was given a plate of cabbage and cauliflower. And we were then told the veg is roasted in animal fat after all so rather than let her know this they served her cabbage and cauliflower it was embarrassing. My chicken was pink also and my sisters was burnt and dry. Waitresses were absolutely clueless so we left very unhappy."
    dined on 15/06/2014
  • "Sunday lunch was superb with fantastic food and service. The colouring pack our daughter was given kept her entertained the whole time we were there allowing us to enjoy our meal. Next time we will be trying the BBQ as good looked superb. First class food in a relaxed child friendly atmosphere"
