Went for the newly launched breakfast.

Good produce, well cooked, though could do with black pudding as an option for the full English. Tiny bit expensive but great service from Shami and others and well worth repeating.

We went for a lovely breakfast - reasonably priced, slightly odd chewy toast, but with generous serves of halloumi and spinach, and PERFECT poached eggs. Couldn't fault the service - friendly, knowledgeable and accommodating. Great view of the water.

The only wrinkle was that the host obviously didn't check us in on OpenTable, so got a 'missed reservation' email afterwards. But regardless, will definitely be back.

I’ve eaten at the Narrow twice now. Both times I really enjoyed it. The location on the Thames is great, particularly at night when there are fabulous views of Canary Wharf in one direction and the Shard in the other. The real stand-out is the service. The waiting staff are friendly and expert. Nothing is too much and one never feels judged. The food is very good, beautifully presented and very tasty. Usual small portions but I was full after three courses. The restaurant is a short walk from Limehouse Station, so very accessible. Recommended.

We had a great time having dinner by the river. The place is cosy and serves decent food, however they could pay a bit more attention to the details of the venue. Sadly, both lavatories, ladies and gents, were missing toliet paper :(

We had a great time at the Narrow. Portions small but very well presented and tasty. Ambience good. Conservatory a bit chillly, although it was a cold night. Service great. One portion of belly pork sent back as it was all fat and hardly any meat! Switched without fuss. The special menu was good value for money.

Valiant attempt to keep the river-side conservatory heated , but even 10 gas heaters, couldn`t overcome a really cold snowy evening. Luckily we were quickly re-seated inside. If you regard this as a gastro-pub, the food is very good and well presented, representing good value - don`t go expecting to hear Gordon Ramsey shouting in the kitchen ! Staff were very busy but kept everything moving. W1ll definitely return in the Spring.

Food was average at best despite having some pretty strong flavours in there. It's a lovely space but I was totally underwhelmed by the overall experience. It took nearly two hours to get our mains, the guy next to us even had his order delivered incorrectly and then challenged by the maitre'd.
Really need to buck up their ideas if they mean to make this restaurant work.

I would highly recommend this 'hidden gem' - only slightly away from the hustle & bustle of Canary Wharf and a very short walk from transport links, the standard of cuisine was first class and the service was both efficient & friendly, all in a charming riverside setting . The 'I love January' menu was a real bargain, so snap it up while it's going. I would definitely come back.

The food was decidedly below average - squash soup was indifferent tasting, gnocchi served at room temperature and the overall atmosphere in the conservatory was cold and dank. However this place is probably transformed on a warm summers afternoon - maybe not one for a damp Tuesday night in January.

Reservamos para el menú navideño, sin embargo al llegar ahí nos confirmaron que el menú no estaba disponible ese día, eso fue un poco decepcionante. Mi comida estuvo bastante buena, pero la de mi marido estaba “regular” no malo, pero tampoco especialmente bueno.

Had a wonderful Christmas meal here with my girlfriend yesterday. The food from their festive set menu was delicious and delivered promptly by the very friendly staff, and we weren't at all rushed. We were also sat right by the windows next to the river, giving us a beautiful panoramic view on a lovely sunny day. The complimentary mince pie at the end was also a nice touch. Would be happy to come here again.

Food was amazing. Had the hangar steak and the brownie dessert. Also had the mulled wine which was very well done. They forgot our creamed spinach sides even after I reminded them so that took the stars off. They appeared to remember by the time we have finished our mains and we obviously want them cancelled by then. The creamed spinach were still left on the bill though!

Our visit started promising with some mulled wine by the fireplace while we waited for our table.
We were eventually sat by our table and ordered our meal( late lunch on a Sunday), restaurant was fairly busy but with some spare tables.
Service was quite prompt and no complaints about that one.
But obviously as it’s Gordon Ramsey’s restaurant we came for the food and I must say it was a bit disappointed. My two friends ordered roasts that arrived after a long while and were only lukewarm, I ordered butterchicken curry with saffron rice which was ok, but I swear there were only two little pieces of chicken covered with plenty of curry sauce. So in general what we mostly came for , disappointed us most.
On a bright side views from a pub a quite nice and make ip for rather very average food.

We found this beautiful location last year and the hospitality and professionalism of the managers and staff. We come on holiday from Italy and were appointed an Italian waiter to help our friends understand the menu. The service was super and asked some olives etc while waiting our order. The manager gave us Prosecco as well. Last week we returned and booked Sunday roast and another day for dinner. As a friend had a birthday, I asked when booking a dover sole meal not on the menu and our request was granted. Perfect place.
