A lovely place for a special treat for a birthday. Excellent service. Great cocktails, delicious food and not too expensive for central London. Great location and ambience too. We’ll definitely be back! Thank you to the staff there.

I invited my family for my final goodbye dinner in London because I wanted to have my last dinner on a rooftop bar. I had called and somehow between the phone conversation and OpenTable reservation that got lost. It was disappointing when they said we had to be seated downstairs with half of the party on a bench, not a regular chairs. When you make your reservation, be sure to call back to re-check with them. They were super super busy, so service was slow at times, hard to find our server sometimes. Appetizers, drinks, and main dish selections were fantastic. But their dessert menu is very limited, could use a fresh fruit option for those who need to avoid sugar. The vibe was great, but the noise level was sometimes too high we could not hear each other.

First time at The Lighterman and certainly won’t be the last. I booked the same morning for lunch and requested an outside shaded table if possible. The request was not only noted on the system and acknowledged by the staff, not always the case, but we were provided with the perfect table on the first floor balcony, in shade looking onto the canal. The service was friendly and faultless. The menu offered a great range and the food was excellent. We were unhurried and enjoyed the perfect lunch with my son. Will be a regular in the future.

My guest and I both went for the Sunday chicken roast and it was delicious. I can honestly say it was the most flavoursome roast we’ve eaten in a while. The portion size was spot on and there were lots of tasty vegetables provided too.
It was the hottest day of the year so far and although all the doors were open it was very hot inside so some ceiling fans would have been ideal. All in all, a great lunch.

I have been the lighterman many times, such a good location especially when the sun is out. Staff was great and very friendly and the food was delicious. Massive letdown that they charge for sparkling water (not bought in bottles but sparkling water they make there). On arrival, we were offered water and opted for sparkling but no mention that we would be charged. Bit disappointing.

Great space to eat & drink! Really friendly & super helpful staff. The food was delicious but some of the “large” plates really aren’t large at all so if you want something filling go for the burgers or fish & chips. But overall a great experience and I’d definitely go back.

Children’s burger was massive but tough and didn’t taste great so my daughter struggled to eat it at all. My smoked salmon with egg came with cold hard boiled egg cut up on top of it - had expected poached or scrambled as it was brunch - though to be fair I should have checked - and was a pretty small portion. Lovely setting and staff very friendly but disappointing food. It’s a pity as kings cross is a place I go often and would hesitate to return to lighterman given other great options nearby.

Unfortunately the staff kept pushing us out, "you have this table for 2hrs" even though we were actively buying drinks. Happened twice, "here's the bill as you only have 20 more minutes here".

We believe this was because we weren't buying much food and they figured they could get more money with other customers.
Annoyingly there were lots of free tables and we ended up just booking another two hours. So it was totally counterproductive.

Seems to me they could just say "would you like to stay longer" and then extend our booking.

Felt like they wanted to get rid of us, which was not a good experience.

Ambience was good on a warm day.

Need a better drinks selection. One cider, and it was on tap. Come on.
