Greenwich can feel like a rural village that somehow wound up in the big smoke, but many of its restaurants have married the charm of inglenook eateries with the high quality of London fine dining. We pick our favourites in our guide to the best places to eat in SE10.

  • Rated as: 4/5
  • Price band: 2/4

Often referred to as Greenwich’s best restaurant – an accolade it’s held for the bulk of the ten-plus years it’s been open – Inside didn’t disappoint on our last visit, showing that chef-proprietor Guy Awford’s aim to create a top-notch neighbourhood restaurant is still in full swing. The compact, smart interior (white tablecloths, subdued grey and ochre tones) and rather cool staff might not appeal if you like a rustic vibe, but the formal atmosphere does help to

The Brasserie @ The National Maritime Museum

  • Rated as: 3/5

‘Would you like to sit by the window? It’s a good view,’ said the waiter. Except it was after dark and this stylish brasserie, sitting high up in the National Maritime Museum’s new multi-million pound Sammy Ofer Wing, is brightly lit and Greenwich park is not. The reflection of ourselves, noses pressed against the glass, wasn’t as charming as the terrace and greenery beyond but the owners have at least given some thought to the interior decor. Polished concrete floors

Black Vanilla

  • Rated as: 3/5
  • Price band: 1/4

After opening a first ice cream parlour in Blackheath, Black Vanilla's second branch (opened January 2012) sits between three of Greenwich's tourist hotspots: the Cutty Sark, the Old Royal Naval College and Greenwich indoor market. The new branch is close to some fine river views, and the horizons of the owners seem to have expanded too. It's not just ice creams, sorbets and a selection of baked goods on offer - afternoon and champagne teas as well as simple food platters are

Museum Café

  • Rated as: 3/5
  • Price band: 1/4

Located at the base of the National Maritime Museum’s new Sammy Ofer Wing, the sun terrace of the recently opened Museum Café is a pleasant place to relax, but the views of the park are just as good from the seats inside. The kitchen is shared with another newcomer (the 16’’ West Brasserie upstairs), so take note of the strict 11.30am deadline for the short breakfast and brunch menu, which includes the likes of porridge and eggs benedict. Aside from the sandwiches and

The Hill

  • Price band: 1/4

There's a Latin influence at this Greenwich restaurant and bar - the owners are from Ecuador. The food, though, sticks more or less to a Mediterranean theme.  Expect dishes such as tricolore salads, hand-carved Iberico ham, escargots, pastas, pizzas and pollo alla Milanese. South America does feature too, though, in weekly specials and in  empanadas, Ecuadorian ceviche and lomo a la pimienta - Argentinian fillet steak with peppercorn sauce.  The wine list offers old and new

Greenwich Tavern

A traditional pub overlooking Greenwich Park, the Greenwich Tavern encompasses a main bar area and two private function rooms spread across three floors. In addition to the beer and real ale on offer, the kitchen serves a mix of traditional British favourites and modern European dishes, while the drinks menu is bolstered by a large selection of freshly-made cocktails.

I'm not sure why it's not listed but the Goddards at Greenwich pie and mash restaurant is a Greenwich institution and is a must visit if you are in the area. Pies to die for and a great atmosphere. Cheap as well


one of the best places to eat in Greenwich has to be the Vanbrugh. they have a great range of bites to eat on the weekdays, their homemade organic beef burger is definitely one of the best in Greenwich if not London, i have yet to taste a better one. their Sunday roasts pull out all of the stops and include all of the trimmings and I'm told their chocolate brownies are home baked in the morning by the owner.
