It’s finally here – the long-awaited heat wave. After months of luke-warm temperatures, we have all been itching about going to our favourite pubs whilst enjoying an ice-cold pint in European-like sunshine. If you’re looking for a booze pit next to the River Thames with gorgeous views and excellent food, we might have the perfect solution.
The Cutty Sark in Greenwich is a traditional English pub and eating house perched on the river banks – and it has been serving Londoners for over 200 years. The pub is labelled as a ‘fantastic riverside pub’ and on their website they claim to serve ‘the best Fish and Chips in Greenwich.’ Prepared by their team of talented chefs, they also serve up a wide range of locally-brewed real ales and an impressive wine menu.

Sample dishes on their food menu include Captain’s fish pie, Mushroom and tarragon sausages, Pan roasted lamb rump and The Cutty Sark beef burger. They also serve up Sunday Roasts on the weekend, which are described by customers as ‘perfection.’
One TripAdvisor visitor said: “The Cutty Sark is one of those places that you always look for but is really hard to find in London: a beautiful, characterful pub, right next to the river that hasn’t sold out to Tourism.
“The place is bursting with soul and the food is some of the best pub food you are going to find in Town, from hearty fish pie to homemade beef/veggie burgers, fish and chips, vegan halloumi salad, to name but a few.”
A second 5 star review said: “Great pub! We love visiting Cutty Sark pub, best place in Greenwich. Food is already fantastic, cocktails are even better. Staff are always so Professional and helpful.”
A third simply said: “I have been too a lot of pubs but this place is pretty special. It feels like stepping back in time and has a warm inviting atmosphere. The staff were fantastic and friendly. I would thoroughly recommend.”
