Rivington Grill

Sister to the edgier Shoreditch original, this Greenwich branch of Rivington Grill has an appropriately maritime feel, with brass railings and mirror-lined mezzanine. Both restaurants carry a meat- and fish-focused menu, though with somewhat more vegetarian choices here.

The cooking is of the modern style that the Caprice group has been instrumental in championing: an essentially simple approach aimed at highlighting good ingredients. Marinated sardines might be served with a radish and fennel salad, devilled mackerel with tomato & basil salad. Menus change from lunch to dinner, though not in size: these are not the Bible-size documents that can make choosing so difficult. Desserts are true Brit, and slanted towards the territory of comfort food.  

House cocktails are a major feature, with lists devoted to both gin and the Bloody Mary. The wine list is priced with the budget-conscious and quality-conscious equally in mind: most bottles are under £30. If you're around for breakfast, prices are reasonable.

Recently came here for dinner, and it was such a great find, only a few minutes from Cutty Sark DLR - tucked away next to Greenwich picturehouse. The food was delicious, and the service was excellent, they took our coats on arrival. They had an extensive gin menu - and a really great selection of 'port & sticky' on the dessert menu. Our favourite was the apple and blackberry crumble and custard for dessert, as it so homely and not too sweet. Really great British food, and lovely atmosphere. Would definitely recommend as a great dinner place.

Great atmosphere, simple but delicious menu and great selection of gins. Also love un-screw Mondays for a bit of added value!

Good brasserie style food, cocktails & wine. Informal atmosphere and equally great for brunch and supper. Even cope with the Sunday crowds well. Booking essential at the weekend.

Had a wonderful meal, the burger is awesome and although the food is top quality, not expensive. Its also right next door to the Picturehouse in Greenwich so perfect for a drink after the flicks.

We came in in a group of 10, we were served bread which we thoroughly enjoyed. This set our expectations really high for the main course. If the bread taste this good then the main must be amazing. We were completely let down and disappointed. The starter was served beautifully and by then our hope we're pretty high. Half of us ordered rib eye steak ranging from rare to well done. All steaks were cold and very chewy. Not to help that they didn't supply us with steak knives so alot of efforts went into slicing it. One steak wasn't served until everyone had finished eating. But after speaking to a waitress they deducted that from the bill. The lamb shank was tough and did not fall off the bone as a slow cooked shank should. The steak pie was too oily to finish, even the pastry couldn't soak it up. Really put a downer on everyone's mood. I've been desperate to try this place for a long time and was really let down. Honestly would've enjoyed dinner more around the corner at frankly and bunny's or nandos. Maybe we tried on a bad night but would risk trying again.
