Woolwich restaurant Con Gusto have announced they are set to close by the end of June.
The news follows shortly after the Woolwich Equitable pub on General Gordon Square closed.
The Italian restaurant is located beside the Thames close to the Thames Clipper ferry stop and Woolwich Works. It’s a short walk from Woolwich Elizabeth line station.
Let’s hope something happens with the building, as despite £130,000 in funding from the Greater London Authority for Woolwich nightlife – which mostly seems to be spent on events that finish early at 8pm – the actual evening economy in Woolwich is suffering.
Funding was also announced for renovating the Royal Arsenal Gatehouse – but instead of a bar or restaurant Greenwich Council have opted for a gallery and nearby café.
