Drink at the Cutty Sark

The sunset over the Thames at the Cutty Sark - on Ballast Quay in Greenwich - was so perfect last night that your author could hardly believe he hadn't written about the pub here before. A beautiful place, dating in its current form from around 1795, it once stood among industrial dockyards with ships tied up to the quay outside.

Yesterday, the tables and wall by the quayside in front of the pub were busy with people enjoying the sunshine and at one point a group of folk musicians even showed up unexpectedly to entertain us. Inside, the busy staff delivered good food in a pleasant environment, that has largely stayed true to its pub routes despite the understandable focus on food.

  1. This site has the four big factors that I consider significant:
    1. historical significance
    2. alcohol
    3. a view over Ballast Quay in Greenwich (actually a view over any water would do me) and
    4. cool architecture.
    Well done!!
