Located in the same building as the Greenwich Picture House, Rivington Greenwich is set over two storeys, with a mezzanine seating 40 people for private parties and a 25-seat terrace. Like its sister restaurant in Shoreditch, the walls are whitewashed, the floors stripped wood and the tables dressed with white linen, and the emphasis is on simple, British dishes cooked with ingredients from small, bespoke suppliers. As well as the main dining area, there is a more relaxed area at the entrance for cocktails and snacks such as Welsh rarebit and eggs Benedict, all to be found in the “On toast” section of the menu, and a bar that spans the width of the room. Rivington sources all its food responsibly from the British Isles and is a true neighbourhood restaurant.

We had a wonderful roast dinner and the setting was perfect. The tables are nicely spread out so you don’t feel like anyone is intruding on your experience. The service was great and overall we can’t fault our afternoon there!

The waitress spilt food on table and neither scooped it up nor cleaned it. I am not sure the waitresses understood order as it was quite noisy. Food not as good as we remembered it

Service is amazing at rivingtons but I feel the food has gone downhill. The tomatoes with the burratta where tasteless. The chicken milenase tasted delicious but very heavy

Tight space, we barely had enough space between chair and table. Service was a bit strange. We arrived 10 mins early and were asked to wait 15 mins before we could be seated although there were many empty tables. Fish and chips was soft and bready and incuded skin and scales

There were some interesting breakfast options not just the same as you get everywhere and it was a fun atmosphere; we had a mixed group people who wanted a drink and people with kids and we all enjoyed it.

I took my daughter for her birthday and our experience was fabulous. Having never visited this restaurant before, I did not know what to expect, but I needn’t have worried. The welcome was lovely and time was taken to explain both the drinks and food menus. The food was exceptional and well presented even having a ‘Happy Birthday’ written in chocolate on my daughters dessert plate. My 4 year old grandson was made welcome also. I will definitely be going back.

A step up from your average gastro-pub.

Well cooked comfort food with great service and good drinks. A bit pricey for where it is in Greenwich though. Limited veggie choice - adding a premium veggie burger on there would be a good idea.

Had a great lunch with a friend at the Rivington Greenwich where we really enjoyed that we could sit outside in the gorgeous weather. The service was excellent and the place has an amazing gin selection - so also started with a Gin cocktail before lunch. We both had some really lovely fish dishes both for starter and main so can only highly recommend this place.

The food and service were both very good. When I expressed surprise at the voluntary service charge of 12.5% the manager immediately changed the bill for one without service charge and I was able to decide the size of the tip to give. I was very pleased and surprised at this response.

I am a frequent visitor to the Rivington, often eating with a friend before or after a film at the Picturehouse. I usually have a gin cocktail, The dressed crab and a portion of chips.
I love it and the service is always excellent !

Very good range of food and excellent quality. Can be a bit noisy if the table is close to the bar. Not keen on the fact that dogs are allowed into the establishment.

Very good service and the food was very enjoyable. I was glad to be sitting upstairs as it was quite noisy downstairs. The cost of the meal reflected the standard- value for money and I would re-visit if in the area

The most fabulous selection of gin and food and wine is excellent. My friend, myself and her 3 year old daughter ate in the garden. The kid's menu is free when 2 adults eat from the main menu, excellent value. We started with the prawns (delicious) and even more delicious were the scallops with green pea puree and bacon.

We had friends visiting from Hong Kong at short notice last week and it was their youngest daughter’s birthday. I got a booking the same afternoon and the Manager, Andrei, and his team made sure we had a wonderful night. Food was excellent (as always) and they did a beautiful “Happy Birthday” on the little girl’s dessert plate. Our guests were very happy and impressed by the high standard of quality and service. Thanks Andrei and staff, look forward to seeing you all again soon! CLARE W. Greenwich.
