SquareMeal Review of
The Sail Loft
Built from scratch to service one of Greenwich’s new residential developments, this smartly tricked-out split-level pub boasts a riverside terrace and views of Docklands and the Cutty Sark. The chic interior incorporates a streamlined contemporary loft, bleached woods, nautical fittings and models of the old clippers that once berthed nearby. Owners Fuller’s supply most of the draughts, including Frontier craft lager, Seafarers ale and Black Cab stout. Pair these – or one of the fairly priced wines – with bar snacks of haggis Scotch egg or salt-cod beignets. At weekends (10-11.30am) you can brunch on smashed avocado and poached eggs, black-pudding hash or full English breakfast with Bloody Mary or raw superfood juices. Typical lunch and dinner plates include pimped-up fish pies, braised ox cheek, or goats’ cheese and shallot tart – followed by crumbles or brownies. Sunday lunch specials and children’s menus are further reasons to set sail for this SE10 newbie.
