London’s Best Riverside and Canal Bars

Favourites 6

Whether you’re enjoying a leisurely Sunday brunch in the sun or toasting a balmy summer evening with a glass of rosé in hand, there’s nothing like nabbing an alfresco eating spot when the weather’s behaving in London. We’ve narrowed down the best tables with a waterside view.

CHEYNE WALK BRASSERIE

Boasting brilliantly executed brasserie dishes and fine wines by the glass, this French Provencal dining spot makes the most of its stunning river view with deep chaises longues, perfect for relaxing in.

CUTTY SARK

Waterside locations don’t get much better than the Cutty Sark. The Greenwich institution combines the bow-fronted charm of a Georgian structure with views over some of the capital’s best modern architecture in Canary Wharf. Secure a window seat in the top-level room for views both up and downstream.

DOCK KITCHEN

Those with an eye for design should check out Dock Kitchen at Portobello Docks. Kitted out by furniture designer Tom Dixon, with a kitchen manned by River Café graduate Stevie Parle, its broad terrace overlooks a small dock and is a must-visit for foodies in search of creative dishes.
