Heaps’s Sausage Café is a little misleadingly named.
It’s actually mostly made from brick.
But inside they specialise in delicious, good ol’ fashioned sausages. And you’re guaranteed some serious bang for your, well, bangers. You’ll find it sitting opposite The Greenwich Theatre, on a small side street. It’s quite petite inside, but there is room to sit down in some fittingly old fashioned-style booths, with wooden bench seating and narrow tables.
All of Heap’s sausages are made fresh onsite, and you can even catch a glimpse of the small butchery and kitchen at the back of the shop. There’s a fantastic variety of meats and spices shoved into stomach lining and each one cuts the mustard – which is also local and available as a side with mash, beetroot and cabbage, swede and parsnip, and, for the millennials out there, plenty of avocado.
Fancy something spicy? Try a Lethal Lucifer. How about a seafood sausage? That’ll be a Billingsgate Banger then. If you’re after something a little more exotic, the merguez all-lamb sausage should scratch that itch. And of course there’s a classic hot dog, or a sausage roll, or a less-traditional ‘sausage on a stick’. If it’s a sausage, it’s here.
Of course, you can buy some sausages to take away either from the kitchen or the butchery counter. If you’re opting for the latter, you can expect to see their extremely varied selection of bangers, from their flagship No.1 sausage spiced with nutmeg, mace, and coriander, to standouts stuffed with the likes of apple & wildflower honey, chestnut & bacon, prune & cognac, or smoked bacon & herbs.
A great spot for breakfast, or a more hearty lunch, it has the feel of Old Greenwich about it and you won’t be disappointed with the grub.
NOTE: Heap’s Sausage Café is open now. You can find out more and see their full retail sausage menu at their website right HERE.
