If you've been to any of London Shell's pop-ups, you'll know that it's good news that this enthusiastic bunch of foodies have signed a deal to open a permanent restaurant in London. However, it's not bricks and mortar - more wood and steel. They'll be launching a floating restaurant on the Regent’s Canal at Paddington with dinner either moored up or on the move.

As you might expect from such a watery location, the menu focuses on seasonal seafood. But, given the season they're opening in, they'll also feature dishes with British game.

The menu looks REALLY good - expect to see:

  • Morecambe Bay Oysters - served with a mignonette of cucumber, celery, chilli & Moscatel vinegar
  • Smoked Cod’s Roe & Burnt Leaks on Toast
  • Blood Cake, Queen Scallops & Pea Puree

And, to wash it down with, there'll be wine and spirits too with five, London-focused cocktails, using sherries, fortifieds and British vermouths.

The London Shell Co. opens on 3 November 2016 on the Prince Regent canal boat at Sheldon Square, London W2 6EP. Bookings will open on 3 October. They'll be open for lunch and cruising dinners from Wednesday to Friday, the cruising dinner leaving from Paddington at 7.30pm, with welcome drinks available from 6.30pm. The two-and-a-half-hour cruise will take guests peacefully along the scenic Regent’s Canal to Camden Lock and back again. Keep up with their news on Twitter @LondonShellCo
