Historical version 16 of Narrow, E14 8DP (view current version)

The Narrow (originally called the Barley Mow and then The Narrow Street Pub) was bought and renovated by Gordon Ramsay at the beginning of 2007. To quote the pub's website - "In its new form, Gordon Ramsay Holdings have created a warm and relaxed environment where the emphasis is on good quality food with real ales and ciders."

There are a number of separate areas; a restaurant, a conservatory, a bar area, and a riverside patio. All except the restaurant are available to non-eaters and people who haven't booked. The restaurant serves traditional British food (pie, fish and chips, sausage and mash, braised lamb - posh versions, of course), while bar food (pints of prawns, pickled cockles/whelks/mussels, potted salt beef, dressed crab/lobster, ploughman's) is available in the other areas.

Kake and Ewan visited on a Friday evening in June 2008. Arriving at 7pm, we were lucky to find a spare table. Two real ales were available; Adnams Regatta (£2.80/pint) and Deuchars IPA - there was another handpump with no clip, which judging by other reviews on the interweb usually has Pride on. We sat in the conservatory, which has a rather nice view over the river. It seems that despite the Gordon Ramsay connection, this place is actually a decent bet even if you just want a pint.
