You can now have a floating Sunday lunch aboard this London boat

By Anya Meyerowitz

Just when you thought Sunday lunch couldn’t get more joyful, London Shell Co has announced that you can now have your weekend staple to go... down the Thames. 

Okay not ‘down’ the Thames, but certainly on it. Floating restaurant The Grand Duchess, moored on the Grand Union Canal at Paddington Central, is extending its weekly offering to Sunday sessions. Get your sea legs and jump aboard for an afternoon of live music, indulgent sharing mains and seasonal seafood. 

Diners can expect dishes such as classic fish pie, rolled lamb saddle with celeriac and anchovy gratin, and whole roast monkfish tail with roast garlic and potatoes. Fish is sourced fresh from Cornwall (not the Thames, thankfully) and the wine comes from producers who follow ecologically conscious processes.  

We know that the siren call of your local is hard to resist, but you can’t beat a boat. 

New year, new roast, right?
