Food & Drink
on the Peninsula
Destination restaurants, neighbourhood cafes, bars to revel in and your new local.
1. Craft Cafe
Pick up a loaf of Greenwich Rise sourdough, a Craft London roasted coffee, a pizza, salad or Verdant green juice. Eat inside, outside or take your pickings on a wander through the Peninsula Garden.
2. Craft Restaurant
An a la carte menu, a 6 course tasting menu, set lunch and a 60 minute offering that’s perfect for a pre O2 bite. Stevie Parle runs a kitchen that uses lots of in-house Craft produce, from cured meat to honey and butter for the bread. Almost everything served is from British suppliers and handled with a light, modern touch.
3. Craft Bar
360 degree views, a lovely terrace, but even better drinks thanks to a simple, modern cocktail list put together by Adam Wyatt-Jones, that echoes the Craft Restaurant kitchen. No fruit is used out of season and honey, treacle or golden syrup replaces regular white sugar syrup. There’s no gimmicks, just Craft made whisk(e)y, gin, infusions, tinctures and bitters.
4. Greenwich Kitchen
At Greenwich Kitchen you’ll find a relaxed crowd enjoying sustainably sourced ingredients from breakfast to midnight. Housed in NOW Gallery’s twin building the menu spanning cheese and charcuterie, light nibbles and substantial mains, is designed to complement a carefully selected wine list.
5. Vinotech Compass
The ultimate wine haven, where the food matches the mind-blowing wine list. More than 400 wines served alongside colourful plates from Basque head chef, Idoia Guzman. Wine-friendly dishes inspired by London’s truly international food culture as well as Guzman’s native land.
6. The Pilot
A place with no shortage of claims to fame, the Pilot featured in Blur’s music video for ‘Park Life’ and has one of the largest cheese collections of any British pub. Built in the 1800’s it’s a special place to eat, drink or stay.
7. Yalla Yalla
A pop-up that takes ever-popular Yalla Yalla back to its Beirut Street food roots. Fresh, relaxed and tasty Lebanese and Middle Eastern delights.
8. Meantime Beer Box
In the heart of Peninsula Square and a stone’s throw from the 02, you’ll find the Beer Box, crammed with the finest beers in London, and a sunny open roof terrace to enjoy them on.
9. The O2
Burgers to sushi, pizza to steak, Byron to Gaucho. Pre-show, post-show or no-show, snacks to three-courses, and everything in between.
