One of my goals for 2015 was to explore more of London, so me and Bobbi ventured to Greenwich for some classic pie and mash, and a quick nosey around!
Serving London’s most traditional pie, mash and liquor for over 125 years, Goddards at Greenwich is a family run business just located off King William Walk. Serving freshly made food over the counter ‘dinner lady style’, you can take your pick from their delicious selection of pies such as chicken and ham, steak and kidney and even a veggie soya pie.
I decided to go for the traditional minced beef pie with mash and liquor, whereas Bobbi went for double pie, double mash and liquor, both were around £5-£6 each. Sat in one of their wooden booths surrounded by paintings, photographs and old signs, you really feel Goddards’ ambience. To say it was my first time trying liquor – and that I was a little apprehensive – it turned out to be amazing and was just the perfect winter warmer that I needed!
After our pie encounter, we headed to the Royal Observatory – home of Greenwich Mean Time (GMT). I love exploring places like this, and learning something new about Britain’s history. Aside from time, another great thing about the Royal Observatory is that you also get to see some beautiful panoramic views of London – for free!
Another one to tick off the ‘London bucket list’ was seeing the famous Cutty Sark and the old historical buildings. It’s hard to believe that this village is a part of London – it seems a world away from the hustle and bustle of Central!
The next stop was Greenwich market and the local shops. There were carol singers and even a finely dressed-up goat! I love visiting markets and seeing all the different food, book and clothes stalls. In the market there were also some pretty cool art galleries which I would definitely recommend!
Greenwich is such a pretty place, and I am so happy that Bobbi showed it to me! Have you been to Greenwich before?
