It's a case of location, location, location at this river-view hostelry with draught beers and bags of atmosphere.

Ah, the transformative power of the River Thames. Were it a couple of miles inland, the Cutty Sark would be a charming but otherwise unremarkable pub, recently the recipient of the current style of Young’s makeover: a lot of Farrow & Ball putty colours, better-than-average grub and a decent, if unadventurous, selection of ales and wine. But add the mighty Thames and it becomes three floors of bow-fronted Georgian magic, with the top-level room in particular giving fantastic river views both up- and downstream. Secure a window seat, or a table on the cobbled street outside, and imagine yourself in one of the nicer scenes from ‘Our Mutual Friend’.

Great pub away from the Greenwich crowds, with a mean Sunday roast and plenty of drinks on tap. In the summer, sit outside for a fantastic view up and down the Thames.
