Take the Highroad to Greenwich

A new British Isles-focused restaurant and bar with a strong seafood offer is to open in Greenwich next month. Highroad Social takes over the site of the Rivington Grill, next door to the Picturehouse cinema.

Founder David O’Brien is an ex-development director at Caprice Holdings, with an Irish head chef in Fionnan Flood, formerly of The Chelsea Pig, and Clark Crown (ex-Palomar) in charge of the bar.

There will be a separate raw bar, with seafood including Scottish scallops, Carlingford oysters, and Cornish crabs along with Hereford beef tartare on toast with smoked crème fraiche and cured egg yolk.

Fionnan says his menu will use premium local ingredients and is inspired by his grandmother’s love for cooking. Dishes include Glamorgan pork croquette with toffee apple sauce; barbecued razor clams with baked garlic and lemon sauce; braised ox tongue, beef cheek, bone broth with house pickles; and shallot tarte tatin with British ricotta and thyme.

Highroad Social opens on Sunday 7 July.
