Since 2002 The Waterway has established itself as one of Maida Vale’s best local restaurants and one of London’s greatest outdoor terraces with spectacular views overlooking the beautiful Grand Union Canal. Inside has a cosy feel in winter just like a ski chalet, complete with fireplace and leather sofas.


The restaurant and bar area can be split up for all types of events whether it’s a small business lunch or full-blown cocktail party. The outdoor terrace seats 120 and the indoor area can seat 100. They can host standing events of up to 300 guests across the venue.


With a modern European menu boasting salads, seafood, steaks and the famed ‘Waterway Burger’, they have something for everybody’s taste.


 They offer a fantastic wine selection from around the world and mouth-watering alcoholic and non-alcoholic cocktails.
