Narrow Boat

Picture source: G North


The Narrow Boat was situated at 346 Ladbroke Grove. This was a very small Fullers pub next to the canal bridge, and I recall there was a very steep staircase down to the toilets. It was a regular in the Good Beer Guide until 1989, it closed around then and has since been demolished and replaced by a block of flats. Previously known as The Queen Victoria until 1977 when Fullers took over the pub. This pub was present by the 1890s.

Ken Purser 1979/1989 The cellar was below the water level of the Grand Union Canal. Probably why it served the best pint of London Pride you could get. It was a loverly little pub. Often seen in episodes of Minder.
