London Shell Co. serves the finest British seafood whilst guests enjoy a journey along the beautiful and historic Regent’s Canal in Central London.

This unique seafood restaurant was launched in December 2016 by siblings Harry and Leah Lobek, with Chef Stuart Kilpatrick. We have a strong focus on British ingredients and sustainable fishing methods, our simple and considered menus change with the seasons.

London Shell Co. has quickly become one of London’s most enchanting experiences, the restaurant's 2.5 hour journey can quickly make you forget you are even in London. The cruise departs from the boat's mooring in Paddington and heads out into Little Venice, from there you go through the dramatic Maida Hill Tunnel and along the tree-lined canal ways, past iconic landmarks such as London Zoo and Regents Park, before turning around in front of Camden lock in order to go all the way home again. 

Just sit back, order something delicious to drink, and enjoy your escape.


"I loved the event. Not once did I feel like a tourist, just a Londoner walking on water."
Fay Maschler – The Evening Standard

“I love going to restaurants, but it's rare that I get such a tingle of boyish excitement about it.”
Michael Deacon – The Telegraph

“The wine list is a rather beautiful thing: both relatively short and idiosyncratic”
Jay Rayner - The Guardian

Our aim is to work with the best ingredients and produce available. To achieve this we buy our Fish direct from market in Brixham, and work closely with just a few specialised suppliers. Menus are written in the morning for service that day and change throughout the week. It is an exciting way to work and ensures that we always deliver seasonality and quality.


Every wine on our list is of the best possible quality, and with a mixture of prime classics and utterly delicious but lesser-known bottles we can assure you that every glass or bottle ordered on board will add joy and variety to your experience. We also offer a wine pairing as an addition to the menu (£65pp) which gives you the opportunity to put your tastebuds entirely in our hands; let us guide you around the list!
