The LightermanOccupying an enviable spot on Granary Square and with an alfresco terrace overlooking Regent's Canal, The Lighterman serves a modern British all-day menu in a modern industrial space. Named after the Victorian-era workers who operated 'lighters', or flat-bottomed goods barges, on the River Thames and canals, the restaurant is housed in a contemporary building and is designed by award-winning architects Stanton Williams, who upgraded the entrances and public spaces of the Royal Opera House. Floor-to-ceiling glass windows make the most of the canal-side facade while the exterior, finished in a linear brick facade, ties in with the Granary Building. A large site offering several options from casual drinks through to destination dining, The Lighterman serves everything from breakfast through to dinner with pizzas and meats cooked on the wood-fired grill a speciality. Whether you want to eat sitting out on Granary Square or opt for the more formal top floor enjoying panoramic views across the square and canal, this restaurant from Open House, sister company to Cubitt House who own The Grazing Goat and The Orange, is the place to go.
