The Limehouse opens in Canary Wharf


The Limehouse in Canary Wharf, formerly known as The Fine Line, opened in January with a brand-new look and name – but with the same friendly team and stunning waterside views. 

Managed by Johan Koops, The Limehouse is a lively waterside pub on Fisherman’s Walk. Johan said its new name was inspired by the local lime kilns that were used by potteries to craft products for shipping companies and ships in the docks.

A taste of Sri Lanka

While The Limehouse is a traditional pub with its beloved dartboard and pool table still in place, it doesn’t serve-up your usual pub food. Inside the popular waterside pub is an authentic Sri Lankan Kitchen, Karapincha, which is serving up traditional Sri Lankan food with a modern twist.

The menu boasts a selection of traditional Sri Lankan food such as roti and hoppers, an impressive selection of vegetarian and vegan options plus a wide variety of smaller, finger food dishes.

To wash down these Sri Lankan delights, the bar boasts a wide selection of award-winning Fuller’s beers, Cornish Orchards ciders and an expertly curated wine list. 

Cocktails are also a specialty here. From Espresso Martinis to Margaritas with a twist – cocktail lovers should make time to visit The Limehouse to taste their latest mixologist masterpieces by the water’s edge. Especially on a Wednesday, when you can get two for £10!

An exciting addition to Canary Wharf

Managing Director of Fuller’s Inns, Jonathon Swaine, said: “The Limehouse is a really exciting addition to the area. The Fine Line was a great pub, but unfortunately it wasn’t quite right for the contemporary Canary Wharf. 

“Consumer feedback was that the area needed a quality, traditional English pub and so that was always in mind when we were planning this refurbishment. We were also very keen to have delicious food available and Karapincha is just that – its dishes really are fantastic. We also think this adds something a bit different to the area – offering an exciting alternative to what’s already available in Canary Wharf.”

The Limehouse is neighbours to another busy Fuller’s pub, The Merchant, Jonathon explained. 

“We also have The Merchant just down the path from The Limehouse – which really is a completely different pub. We pride ourselves on our pubs all being individual – we don’t want carbon copies of the same pub all over town. Comparing The Limehouse and The Merchant is a true representation of the diversity in the Fuller’s estate. Two different, but equally fantastic, pubs just a stone’s throw from one another. We look forward to welcoming you to both.”
