The Narrow, Limehouse
The Narrow, at no. 44 Narrow Street, E14 is a Grade II listed building, located in the Limehouse area of East London, directly alongside the River Thames. The pub is part of the Gordon Ramsey chain

The area, where the Grand Union Canal and the Regents Canal meet the Thames, first became known for its limekilns in the 14th century and in the 1740ís became the site of Englandís first soft paste porcelain factory. Shipbuilding also thrived in the area from the 16th through to the 19th century.

In 1830, the well-known brewer Taylor Walker began brewing on the site of todayís Narrow Street pub. The building itself was constructed between 1905 and 1910 by British Waterways as a purpose-built customs / Dock Masterís house serving the Limehouse Basin. LinkExternal link
