Had a lovely meal - possibly the best burger we’ve ever have had! The service was outstanding, both waitresses that served us really looked after us throughout our time there, I wish I knew their names! Thank you again :)

Place itself is very pretty, waiters are caring and the atmosphere is nice. Coctails where good and refreshing but the food was quite salty and overall just ok, I was definitely expecting something more from this place.

Entrance to restaurant seems to be through the rear of the building, no evident reception area other than the lobby for the toilets.

Food was below par, steak was overpriced and fatty. Selection of sides was underwhelming where we had a pick of 4, 2 of which were chips.

I was really disappointed by The Narrow as I was really looking forward to going for a few months. Annoyed that Brunch ended at 12pm on a Saturday as had specifically booked it to eat brunch. Instead had to eat from the main menu which was a Chicken Burger, which I thought was average at best, and the Chips tasted like they were full of fat and from the bottom of the fryer. The main meals also took about an hour to arrive. Overall, was highly disappointed, especially as I had booked it for mine and my girlfriends day out. Even my girlfriend thought that the food was very average.

The view and the ambience of the restaurant is good however the portion size of mains is small compared to the price. we ordered ravioli which wasn’t a good enough portion for one person and it wasn’t the great or the best ravioli either. The sauce and the pesto was hardly there and not very flavourful.

Since they have limited menu, there are few things to order especially for vegetarians. Butter chicken dish was good and again rice could have been a bit more.

The service is great, the staff is very friendly and sweet. ambience is also good so all in all I’ll give it 3.5 but won’t recommend anyone to go for just the food.

I thought it was very shabby and in need of a complete makeover very surprised Ramsey group put there name to it .
When we got there the chefs were smoking at the front of the pub and when we got inside it just felt dirty seats had rips in them tables were chipped and the toilets had paper on the floor . I know it's a gastro pub but when you're charging 19 pound for fish and chips I think you could do better I will not go again.
Sorry for this review

Very middle of the road food. We went for Brunch - Full English Breakfast with a side of whole-meal toast ( which you have to pay pay extra for). Meal served on small plates to give the impression of large portions. Tinned baked beans, toast was not homemade bread, no flavour. Coffee very watery and at £4.00 per cup not great at all. Waiting staff okay but distant.

The view from the restaurant is very pleasant and being by the water was great.

Gordon Ramsey I am sure would not be impressed - needs to try harder.

Will not be visiting again, very disappointed.

Came here for a date night on Friday evening and me and my partner were really looking forward to try Gordon Ramsay's restaurant. The ambience and service were brilliant, however, the food was quite disappointing.

We ordered fried squid for starter, fish & chips and burger for the main, and sticky toffee pudding with banana split ice cream for dessert.

The squid with lime and coriander mayo were so so bland... It felt like they've completely forgotten about the seasoning to the batter and mayo, we could barely taste anything in the whole dish apart from the floury batter. Same with the fish and chips, although the portion of the fish was very impressive, the batter was so bland that it was like eating plain flour and fish.

The burger with sriracha mayo though turned out to be a surprise, although I would still say they could add slightly more flavor to the mayo dressing, the dried aged beef patty and crispy bun really saved the dish.

Sticky toffee pudding was normal, although I'm not sure why the banana split turned into a salted caramel ice cream.

I might come back again for a drink and the view but I'm not sure about the food.

I was watching Gordon Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmare while writing this, and I was wondering what kind of funny comments would Gordan make on the blandness of his own dishes.

My partner and I went to here for Sunday roast and some drinks. The roast was nice but definitely overpriced for what it was - the beef was cold, potatoes hard and had to ask for more gravy as there was not enough drizzled atop. Everything was more or less okay but probably at least 20% more in price than it really should be. The view and name are probably what you're paying for here. For these prices you do expect more.

Appalling value for money. Really unclear when booking what menus are available and was only allowed breakfast and tea and coffee even though had booked for Sunday lunch.
Full English for £14.50 - measly portions and cold, cold toast and rock hard butter - which arrived ages after the breakfast.
Service rude and hurried, kept being reminded how long left we had the table for.
Major let down.

Had to wait an hour for main course. Outside dining in the evening so it was very cold. No heater to keep us warm. One of main course was very cold on arrival and the mustard content in that particular dish was too strong. In the end had to take away our food when served as we waited too long and it was too cold on the outside to continue eating.

We enjoy the Narrow as love the location on hot sunny days! Our lunch on the terrace was excellent. We sat in the conservatory where they’ve removed all glass door panels. Though a chilly day the food was really delicious. The roasted cod and fish and chips were well cooked and seasoned. The potatoes with the thinly battered haddock were crispy and soft inside - All enjoyed with a bottle of their house wine. It’s just so great to be getting out and about again! We’ve found the food can be a little ‘hit and miss’ but yesterday’s lunch was very enjoyable. Thank you very much. 👍
