Where do Canada Water locals go?

Il Bordello

A family-run Italian with turbot bigger than my face! Their service is outstanding and one that we can all learn from and appreciate the lack of nowadays.

The Captain Kidd

Serving organic beer to sip on a sunny London day and affording a garden directly overlooking the Thames. Many a pirate fantasy has been regaled in this public house.


Amazing coffee house with such good coffee and lunchtime food. Great smoothies too!

Southwark Park

Between Canada Water and Old Kent Road, Southwark Park is a peaceful spot with a café and an art gallery.

Pollyanna Training Theatre

Wonderful performance and arts activities for children.

Smith's Brasserie

A beautiful and high-quality restaurant serving the best fish meals in London.

The Narrow

A great gastropub on Narrow Street in Limehouse with fabulous food and a lovely atmosphere. The terrace has superb views of the Thames and you can go for a stroll around picturesque Limehouse Basin afterwards to walk off all the calories consumed!

Shades of Green

In The Quarterdeck, just along Westferry Road, Shades of Green is owned by Bob who is a great bloke. He loves a chat about football and in fact, if you look closely through the right hand window, you can see him in action snipping away!

One Canada Square

A lovely place for elegant drinks and dinner or after-work drinks. Food served throughout the day and with a range of deals too.


The best steak house and part of an upmarket chain. Sumptuous décor, delicious cocktails and perfectly cooked steak that you can choose from a board carried by the waiter.

Maltby Street Market

A wide variety of foods from around the world...

St Katharine Docks

Independent restaurants for dinner after a quick drink at The Dickens Inn or take a twilight stroll alongside the yachts.


This is a first class restaurant and bar. Where else can you hear jazz, blues and amazing tribute acts every night of the week without travelling to the West End?!


The best Turkish food for an excellent price.


Amazing Turkish pastries and much more! It's the perfect spot for breakfast or lunch, with lovely views as well.

  1. About Canada Water

    Canada Water is a freshwater lake and wildlife refuge in Rotherhithe in the Docklands in south-east London. Canada Water tube and bus station is named after the lake, and lies immediately to the north, while Surrey Quays Shopping Centre is also adjacent, sitting immediately to the south. The surrounding area is now increasingly known as Canada Water, after the Underground station as much as the lake itself. The area rapidly gentrified around the river, and when the Jubilee Line was extended in 1999, the focus moved to the area immediately around the lake. The opening of the new Canada Water tube station gave the area rapid connections to the rest of London, with Canary Wharf one stop, Westminster less than 10 minutes, and Bond Street around 15 minutes away by underground train. The station's connection to the London Overground network in 2010 has added a quick connection to the City of London, with a journey of around 10 minutes to Shoreditch High Street station, near Liverpool Street Station.
