North Greenwich: the new horizon
Perhaps best known for taking the world's live entertainment scene by storm since The O2 opened in 2007, North Greenwich has established itself as a key destination on London's cultural map, not just for live music and the ATP Tour Finals, but also for being home to one of the capital's best-kept secrets.
The Pilot is a beautifully quaint traditional English pub nestled alongside the North Greenwich shoreline, offering a quirky, inspirational atmosphere that combines riverside ambience with a twist of urban modernity.
Seasonality is a key theme at this pub, with hearty mains including 12-hour braised Romsey Pork Belly, and Oxtail Moussaka, complemented by a full selection of ales and a lively wine list.
Lighter lunch choices are brilliantly catered for, with dishes including the vegetarian shakshuka (baked free-range eggs with spicy tomato sauce, red peppers and garlic ciabatta) and the crispy baby squid with spicy mayonnaise and a mixed-leaf salad.
The Pilot is just a short walk from the The O2, so it's the perfect place for a drink before a concert or a post-gig bite to eat on a romantic date, and if you're spending a weekend in town, this pub has a selection of stylish and supremely comfortable rooms for you to choose from.
And with Old Greenwich to the south and Canary Wharf to the north, you'll be ideally located to experience the best of the city's history and heritage...
