Five years after being ravaged by fire, the Cutty Sark in Greenwich has re-opened its doors to the public, following an extensive conservation project.
To celebrate, British restaurant Rivington Grill Greenwich will be offering a Cutty Sark heritage menu, which will run from the first day the old clipper opens until 26 May. Even better, £2 from
each menu sold will be donated to the Cutty Sark Trust to help guarantee preservation and future restoration projects.
Focusing on simple British dishes, expect starters such as a gala pie or water souchet - both symbols of celebration in the 18th century. Mains include Elwyn Valley rack of lamb, and Chapman's of
Sevenoaks grilled flounder with anchovies, capers and lemon butter. Puddings travel down a similar route, with Tam o'Shanter banoffee pot or Neal's Yard Stilton and chutney served with hardtack - a
type of cracker that was eaten on long sea voyages for sustenance.
The Cutty Sark menu will be served at Rivington Grill Greenwich until 26 May for lunch and dinner, at £26 for three courses. Call 020 8293 9270 to book a table.
