The Cutty Sark Pub and Eating House is about a 10 minute walk along the embankment from the Greenwich Information centre, heading in the direction of Canary Warf and the O2.
Neil Rhind has written a comprehensive account of the history of the area known as Ballast Quay and has recorded that the existing building dates back to 1808-1809, but that there had been a tavern there in the 17th Century when the area was known as Dog Kennel Meadow.
There is a great atmosphere in an impressive, but informal setting.
I have only been there for a meal in the evening, which I couldn’t fault. I had steak, but everyone raves about their fish and chips. The menu is reasonably priced, the service was very good considering it was Saturday night and the place was heaving. My favourite wine was on the menu and they also stock an impressive selection of beer.
Apart from the building being seeped in history, it is also in a stunning location.
Views across the Thames to Canary Warf and the O2. Spectacular by day and by night. There is seating outside and I have to go back in the summer to soak up the view as well as what is on the menu.
