Incredible Food aboard a Cruising Fish Restaurant in London

OUR DINING EXPERIENCE
Guests meet at 12pm or 6pm at our mooring place in Paddington Basin, where we welcome everyone onboard and get them settled in with a glass of our favourite fortified cider from Somerset. Couples share tables and single diners are seated at our beautiful copper bar.

Time then for an introduction to the crew and a safety briefing for the journey ahead before we depart on our epic voyage (to Camden Town and back).

We then serve the finest British seafood whilst guests enjoy our journey along the beautiful and historic Regent’s Canal in Central London. Five courses served over the next 2.5 hours, drinks are available to buy with table service at all times from our helpful crew. We serve predominantly wines and cider, from Harry's carefully curated list but there are a few beers and cocktails too.

This unique restaurant was launched in December 2016 by siblings Harry and Leah & Head Chef Stuart.

After working for many years as an Actor but also as a Sommelier (Pollen Street Social) I finally got to realise the dream of opening a restaurant with my sister Leah; on a barge! We offer predominantly seafood with beautiful wine: our two real passions.

London Shell Co is our close-knit family run restaurant with a fantastic crew who are deeply passionate about food & drink & service. Leah and I grew up in North London near the Regent's Canal; it was always an inspiring and wondrous place for us and now so much more so.

I don’t have words to describe how wonderful the experience was! Lucy was absolutely lovely and the food was fantastic. I went as a solo diner and sat at the cute copper bar area, and it was such a magical time! I’d highly recommend, and the next time I’m in London, I’m going to try and do the dinner time cruise :)

We had a very good time on the prince regent, the food was delicious, the people were so nice and the ride was fun. A very rare thing to do, but also really easy going and warm. Would definitly do it again in the summer time (even if winter was really great with all the lights)

I had a pretty great time on the boat. I was alone but I felt very much pampered by the crew. The food was just sumptuous and the crew very respectful, affable and congenial. No regrets at al!

The place is unique. Has a romantic vibe to it, beautiful for couples that want to have a special night. But the food was excellent. Never tried seafood so delicious before. From start to end, everything was perfect, the ride, the food, the drinks, would definitely do this again.

I went alone, and really enjoyed myself. The food was amazing! As well as the drinks. Would be a great date! Or even just some time for yourself to enjoy!
