See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.

A relatively new pub, dining room and bar on Granary Square, King’s Cross. The name is inspired by the industrial past of King’s Cross, and the Victorian Lightermen who worked on flat-bottomed barges, known as “Lighters”, on the canals and rivers of London.

On three floors offering great views across Granary Square and the Regent’s Canal, The ground floor has some high tables and stools by the bar but is mostly laid out for eating. The canal-side bar, which is more for drinking, is open Tues to Thu evenings from 4.30pm, from noon on Friday and from 11am on the weekend. Food served from opening until late.

It can get very noisy, especially when busy in the canal-side bar, as the low ceiling and "industrial-chic" decor cause the sound of voices to reverberate, exacerbated by the somewhat unnecessary booming bass from the speakers (which is about all you can discern).

Note that payment is by card only - cash is no longer accepted.
