Harbour & Jones is to open a £5.5m cafe at the site of the famous tea clipper the Cutty Sark in Greenwich next year.

The catering operator, which also runs the cafe at St Paul's Cathedral, plans to open the cafe in April next year following the completion of restoration work to the 19th Century vessel, forced to close after a fire in 2006.

"We’ll remain particularly true to the Cutty Sark’s legacy as a merchant tea vessel and we will be creating a café underneath the ship, two external kiosks and an attractive events and parties offering on board the ship,” said Harbour & Jones director Nathan Jones.

The cafe will serve a range of British dishes using ingredients that reflect the heritage of the ship with tea and cake being a major focus.

Cutty Sark operations manager Julia Parker, who decided to award the contract to Harbour & Jones, said the restored ship and its cafe would provide an 'impressive new location' for parties, weddings and corporate events.
