Blue Nile restaurant in Woolwich to close for good

Sad news today as the owners of Eritrean restaurant Blue Nile in Woolwich has revealed they are selling up.

It’s been one of the highlights of Woolwich since opening eight years ago.

A farewell party is planned soon.

On a personal level I’ve enjoyed a few great meals there and will miss it greatly.

There’s not many places to enjoy Injera in the area. Particularly in a characterful former butchers.

In tweets today, the owner states “I will be available for catering for private parties – please contact me through our website for any enquiries”.

  • That is sad news. That was one of the few culinary highlights in an area that is typified by cheap fried chicken.

  • Very sad news the Blue nile will be very much missed by all their customers. I wish the owners well and every success for the future.

  • Terrible news. Let’s hope that the shop and its gorgeous interior can be saved and not demolished.
