“One of the best in the Greenwich area” – this three-storey Georgian tavern has a “beautiful garden” and “sits away from the main drag, so it’s not overly packed and touristy”. Chef Guy Awford is a well-known name in these parts having cooked at Inside (RIP) for many years, and is credited with some “brilliant cooking” here too. In mid 2019 it closed, to be totally transformed, with re-opening set for September 2019: if they get it half right, this will become Greenwich’s No. 1 destination. (Ratings are based on past performance: not yet post-revamp).

“Not your typical pub food, there’s real quality and great staff” at this three-storey Georgian boozer in Greenwich. “Attention to culinary detail” comes thanks to chef Guy Awford, previously of the area’s “late, lamented Inside restaurant (RIP)”. “Midweek lunch is exceptional value, given the quality”.

“A hidden gem we hope stays hidden” – this three-storey Georgian pub in Greenwich offers “great cooking and attentive but not intrusive service” in the upstairs dining room. Chef-director Guy Awford previously ran “the wonderful Inside” (RIP, long considered “the best in Greenwich”).

For 30 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
