From proper London pie and mash to fragrant Thai curries, there’s something to suit every mood in leafy Greenwich. Here’s Culture Trip’s pick of the best places to eat in SE10.
Definitely one for the carnivores, Heaps Café is a deli and diner that specialises in juicy gourmet sausages. Its signature bangers feature in nearly every item on the menu, from breakfast baps and full English fry-ups to sausage rolls, hotdogs, and sausage and mash. If you’re not hungry enough for a proper meal, you can even buy a single sausage on a stick.
You’d be forgiven for missing Zaibatsu when walking along Trafalgar Road, but at this unassuming takeaway restaurant, the food is anything but unremarkable. There’s a sizeable menu of Asian fusion dishes, including sushi, finely cut sashimi, crisp salads, noodles and sizzling tempura. Particularly recommended is the omakase sashimi selection, a seven-piece assortment of sashimi made with the freshest fish from the day’s catch and served as tender slices alongside a soya dip.
Champagne + Fromage
As you’d expect, the name of the game at this quaint French spot is wine and cheese. One of three London branches, the Champagne + Fromage in Greenwich sits just outside the neighbourhood’s namesake market and offers a delicious selection of charcuterie, bubbles and French delicacies.
Goddards at Greenwich
Generations’ worth of expertise is packed into the pastry at Goddards, a legendary restaurant serving up London-style pie and mash. Owned by the same family since 1890, Goddards specialises in proper London grub – think filling, meaty pies (though there is now a vegan option on the menu) accompanied by a dollop of creamy mash and a generous scoop of liquor. Other traditional dishes to try with your pie include jellied eels, a fruit crumble with custard, and bread and butter pudding.
The Hill is an Ecuadorian-owned restaurant that serves up Mediterranean cuisine with a South American twist. Whether you’re a ceviche lover, paella enthusiast or enjoy stacking up tapas plates, there’s a great selection of Spanish and South American dishes to choose from (plus a pretty sizeable pizza menu). The restaurant is a stone’s throw from Point Hill, Greenwich’s scenic lookout.
