The Waterway

The Waterway is a restaurant and bar with a difference; the 'Union Canal'-side location in Maida Vale, combined with its al fresco dining, provides it with one of the most enjoyable outdoor terraces in all of London. The comfortable restaurant shares an interior space with a bar and lounge area, leading out onto a 120 sq ft outdoor terrace at the front of the building. It's one of the few places in London where outdoor drinking and eating can be enjoyed in such tranquil surroundings. A delicious and varied menu of modern European food accompanied by a fine selection of Old and New World wines and beer, together with its child-friendly atmosphere, makes the Waterway a perfect location for a quick drink, or something more substantial. Make sure not to miss the renowned summer barbecues and live acoustic music!
