Pub next to the riverside in Greenwich.
Has plenty of space to sit outside, around a gigantic iron anchor; inside is quite dark and woody. Smoking is permitted in the outside seating area. Served Pride, Abbott, Deuchars IPA, and St Austell Tribute when we visited in April 2007. Toilets were clean.
As of September 2007, food was served noon-9pm every day (noon-10pm on Saturdays). It is not cheap; even soup of the day is £4.50, while filled jacket potatoes are £7. Main courses start at £8.50 for vegetable wellington and go up from there via sausage and mash (£10), chicken tikka masala (£11), and poached salmon (£12). However, the selection does look relatively interesting, and they do have veggie sausages and mash (£9, though).
An anonymous commenter tells us that the Cutty Sark is under new management (a "lovely husband and wife team" providing "good service") as of February 2008; we don't know if the food menu or times have changed. Our anonymous friend adds that "drinks and food are not cheap but the location says it all (plus it's about 6 minutes' walk from Greenwich proper, which is good!)"
