    Classic spot for drinks with views of the Regents Canal and King’s Cross. My cousins and I had drinks here to celebrate my cousin’s achievement in finishing his law degree. Service was quick in the lower ground. Lots of cocktail choices if you feel more adventurous than having your usual lagers.

    The menu reflected that of classic English pub food, but elevated. The stunning views added to the overall very enjoyable experience. I would say that it is this that you are paying for since although the food is nice, nothing particularly irresistible. Would recommend for anyone who wants a classic King’s Cross view and London lunch.

    We use to go at The Lighterman for a drink or dinner sometimes, this time we had a very nice lunch on the terrace, we tried the two salads on the menu (and they were very good) and we drank two beers and two spritz. Fair prices. The staff is really nice and polite. The view on Kings Cross, Granary Square and the canal is beautiful. We loved the atmosphere. The choice of dishes is varied, so even though I know it might be complicated, just a small suggestion: add more variety of salads for the summer menu. Either way we had a great time as always and it deserves 5 stars. Highly Recommended!

    Stopped by for a quick afternoon snack and a few beers in the sun. The flatbread pizzas were incredible tasty, made with fresh ingredients they were absolutely wonderful. The location is perfect with the seating area at the rear by the canal. If you’re stopping for drinks it’s service at the bar but you can order food from the staff. The Lighterman is one not to be missed if you are in the area and looking for somewhere to enjoy a few drinks, dinner or brunch.

    Disappointing.Porthilly mussels did not fully open leading to a dozen or so uneatable.Lighterman fried chicken and Smoked haddock & Salmon croquettes are so salty. All food and drink are very pricey. I do not recommend this place.
