A brand new restaurant serving modern and seasonal British food has opened its doors in Greenwich.

Highroad Social opened to the public on July 7, serving a variety of small plates, large plates and sharing plates at the restaurant.

Food will be inspired by Flood’s grandmother’s love for cooking and her dedication to using “premium, local ingredients”.

Leaders think the raw menu available will be a “standout feature” of the restaurant, offering dishes such as Hereford beef raw on toast with smoked crème fraiche and cured egg yolk.

There will also be seafood on the raw menu, with plates such as Scottish scallops, Carlingford oysters and Cornish crab.

Other plates that chefs are excited to share are Glamorgan pork croquette with toffee apple sauce; Barbecued razor-clams with baked garlic and lemon sauce; Braised ox tongue, beef cheek, bone broth with house pickles, pistachio; and a Shallot tarte tatin with British ricotta and thyme to share.

The restaurant promises that all ingredients will be sourced from “renowned” British suppliers, including Direct Seafoods London and Rarebreed Meat Company.

Seasonal vegetables will be provided by Thornicrofts company while the local Paul Rhodes bakery will deliver artisanal breads.

Owner David envisioned a British-inspired décor, taking cues from modern Georgian Townhouses peppered with tropical elements; all influenced by Greenwich’s rich history.

Details like House of Hackney wallpapers are set to give the dining space “a contemporary look”.

The space will also include an “impressive mezzanine” which overlooks the dining area, giving guests a “unique perspective” while they eat.

Bar Manager, Clark Crown, has put together a creative cocktail list with the aim of celebrating Great Britain by blending seasonal British ingredients with local brands.

Embracing a philosophy of simplicity without negotiating on quality, each drink exudes its own distinct personality.

A spokesperson for Highroad Social said: “With an extensive wine list championing esoteric wines from independent vineyards, alongside beers from local London brewery Coalition; there will be plenty of reasons to stay a little longer at Highroad Social.

“Whether guests are seeking a casual lunch, a cosy dinner with friends, or a relaxed weekend outing of al fresco cocktails and nibbles while listening to a live DJ playing house, funk and soul, this new all-day neighbourhood eatery will welcome all food enthusiasts.”
