We had the most perfect lunch date aboard the London Shell Co. The food was excellent and surprisingly reasonably priced, the canal boat made for a quirky experience and the service was warm and attentive. We couldn't recommend it more!

Having lunch on a boat is not quite what people are used to. Yet it can be great fun, it is a little different & it would be more enjoyable if the lunch is to be accompanied by a boat trip.
Our lunch was not though and it felt like having a meal in a different kind of restaurant.
The food was tasty, the staff were excellent, however the prices are a bit high.
I thought the total should be discounted when the boat is moored. Attractive wine list.

Hi,

Thank you for your review. I'm really pleased to hear that you enjoyed our wine list and food. We cruise from Paddington to Camden Town and back for dinner Tuesday to Saturday and for lunch every Saturday and Sunday, as far as I am aware, we are the only boat restaurant in London offering such a regular service. Owing to the size of our restaurant and galley kitchen we can only serve a set menu with this experience, however we go to great lengths to source the best ingredients available, the majority of our fish come direct from Cornwall the morning after they have been landed.

We try our best to offer a varied A la carte experience for lunch by offering four starters and four mains. We always ensure that we have a £5 starter and a £10 main dish on an our prices never go above £15. We feel that considering the quality of ingredients we use our prices are very good value when compared to restaurants with a similar style or ethos.

We would love you to come back and experience a dining cruise with us at some point in the future, please get in touch with us directly if you book in. If we could cruise all the time, we would.

A short walk from Paddington Station, we spent a very enjoyable evening on the Prince Regent canal boat, sailing to Camden Lock and back. I was aware that we could share a table with another couple and was a bit unsure about this, but the couple that joined us were great company and added a nice dimension to the evening. The meal was a set 5 course meal at £45 per head. In addition to the normal wine list, a wine pairing menu is available at £55 per head. We had oysters and angel hair fries, sardines cooked with red peppers on toast, a lovely fish soup, pollock for the main and then rhubarb with a delicious ice cream. All the food was delicious. Cheese and coffee were available at an extra charge. It was an evening with a difference and thoroughly enjoyable. Highly recommended!

Beautiful seafood dishes paired with wine (by the glass or bottle!), served while drifting along London's canals. Unlike many other restaurants where you're moved on before next sittings, we had the table for the entire evening to enjoy our dishes and wine, spend time with friends in a unique atmosphere, and see a secret side to London slowly pass by. Such a delight!
