About The Lighterman

The Lighterman is a modern pub and dining experience in Granary Square, with a beautiful canalside location in the heart of King’s Cross. The menu focuses on classic British and European dishes with hearty portions, whether you’re there for lunch, dinner, or one of the best brunches in London. The Lighterman always aims to showcase the freshest local produce, with a focus on sustainable ingredients.

At The Lighterman you’ll be able to pick from a wide range of comfort foods, from pizza to roast dinners to fresh seasonal salads. There are also plenty of drinks to choose from, including an extensive wine list, plenty of spirits, and modern takes on classic cocktails.
