Greenwich, or “The Home of Time” on the south bank of the River Thames across from Canary Wharf, is one of the most visited tourist areas in London and also a historically rich area with lots of green space and pretty views. But where you might expect ritzy restaurants—you’d be right—you will also be surprised by plenty of comfy traditional bars, reasonably priced international eateries and the oldest food market in the UK. Greenwich restaurants have seen a lot of action from the hordes of visitors who come to soak up the maritime history and particular tourist appeal of the “Greenwich Meridian”, and they have the high level of quality and service to show for it.
