I hadn’t been to Greenwich for several years so it felt slightly bizarre to be visiting London’s most genteel south-eastern village two nights in a row. My first revisiting was to Trinity College of Music, situated in the glorious surroundings of the Royal Naval College, to accompany my mum to an alumni event. The second stage of my epic was to visit Georgian gastropub The Guildford Arms, just a short walk from Greenwich DLR and the mainline rail station, which I had been invited to review. The restaurant has two dining rooms, a private room and a sunken garden where we were planning to eat. Chef patron Guy Awford’s has considerable local form and so I had invited along my friend Catherine who lives around the corner from the pub for an insider’s view.
