Gordon Ramsay's The Narrow
This is the gastro river pub owned by Gordon Ramsay.
Location: 44 Narrow Street, London, E14 8DP
Description: This pub is a Grade II-listed building directly alongside the River Thames.
The area, where the Grand Union Canal and the Regents Canal meet the Thames, first became known for its limekilns in the 14th century and in the 1740ís became the site of Englandís first soft paste porcelain factory. Shipbuilding also thrived in the area from the 16th through to the 19th century.
In 1830, the well-known brewer Taylor Walker began brewing on the site of todayís Narrow Street pub. The building itself was constructed between 1905 and 1910 by British Waterways as a purpose-built Customs/DockMasterís house serving the Limehouse Basin.
The building then became a public house, initially called The Barley Mow and later refurbished and re-named The Narrow Street Pub and Dining Room.
In its new form, Gordon Ramsay has created a warm and relaxed environment where the emphasis is on good quality food with real ales and ciders.
