Editor's note: As of November 2015, Inside restaurant is closed. Time Out Food & Drink.

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 spotlight the seriousness of the cooking. A new banquette wall has done wonders for the acoustics, meaning that the background chatter from the well-dressed patrons is more civilised murmur than echoing din. Top-notch own-made bread with olives made an auspicious beginning, and a beautifully arranged starter of gravadlax, crème fraîche and perfectly cooked beetroot was superb. Meaty cod fillet on a bed of spinach, served with herby mash and pea sauce, managed that tricky line between comfort food and fine dining, while a rare grilled ribeye was well complemented by potato and turnip dauphinoise. Desserts of sticky date pudding with cardamom ice-cream, and raspberry and vanilla crème brulée, weren’t highlights, but were tasty. It’s wise to book – locals seemingly celebrate most of their successes here.

Food is generally excellent and the restaurant boasts a loyal local clientèle. For me it just lacks a bit of ambience I like a restaurant where you can chat away without feeling that you are being listened in on but there is something about the layout of the restaurant that means you feel like you are being watched and listened to. Maybe its just my paranoia! Anyway the food more than makes up for it and if you're in Greenwich this is the place to visit.

Have enjoyed there set price lunch on a couple of occasions, great food well presented.

Outstanding food, pushing michelin star standard. Service was good, nice atmosphere, and amazing value, even though we arrived too late for the set menu and paid full price.

Inside in Greenwich is the restaurant I would recommend. The service was first class. The food was delicious. I booked a table in advance of my partner birthday and we had an excellent evening complete with home made birthday cake.

The Inside restaurant Greenwich a great evening out after a day at greenwich park.finding somewhere to eat that catered for all our tastes was truly remarkable 8 adults all with different ideas but i chose wisely and the food was amazing,great service and a good wine choice made for a very enjoyable evening a must return visit will soon be on the cards,thanks again for a wonderful evening.

Cracking good meal tonight on a rainy April evening. Everything I ate tasted wonderful, presentation was top notch and the house wine slipped down nicely.

Food was good, but the tallest waitress was annoying murmuring with f words in my complaints.
