Now this is what a neighborhood restaurant is supposed to be - a place with good people, great food and even better beer. Their "Meantime" beers are first-rate - we had the Yakima Red and the London Pale Ale with our dinners and both were terrific. Travel the London Underground, get on the DLR and experience this hidden gem for... More

Lunch with my mates daughter & boyfriend (their choice). Nothing to rave about for me but equally nothing to moan about. The food was nicely prepared and drinks not badly priced for London. The staff were polite and friendly with good service and I liked the layout/style of the place. Very pleasant lunchtime but nothing to get too excited about... More

Visited for lunch on a Saturday as a party of 8 including a baby. The food was a really good standard for a pub, and the service was absolutely superb. Highly recommend.

If you've sought out this pub you'll already know that it offers a huge beer selection, mostly in bottles but it also has a good selection of meantime beers on tap. We visited with friends on a Saturday evening and although the pub was not completely full of people I'm pleased we had reserved a table. Our wives were very... More

We thought this place a gem. The food was delicious and the service was so friendly. Dave was a bit disappointed the beer was on tap rather than draught, but we were both glad of a great choice of local ale (brewed on site). The food was exemplary pub fare; good sized portions, good selection on the menu, all beautifully... More

Greenwich Meantime Brewery outlet which prices itself as if it was Chelsea Brewery. What a shame that a small pub off the main drag that used to service locals has ended being another buger-diner attempting to please everyone but having no charachter. Having said that the staff are smiley but the great success of the business should be put down... More

Greenwich feels like a small town, even though it's only a 12 minute train ride from Central London. I came across this pub last year and made the short trek out again this trip. Lots of awesome beers on tap, great ribs, a nice beer-garden out back, and a short walk from Greenwich station, from where a train zips you... More

Staying in Greenwich

Neighbourhood Profile
Greenwich Mean Time starts here, so to speak, as the very concept of global time was established at Royal Observatory, just one of several buildings of architectural interest in Greenwich. Indeed, the whole of Greenwich's historic town center, its Royal Park and a number of related buildings (and one world famous ship, the Cutty Sark) make up the UNESCO World Heritage site known as Maritime Greenwich. Today a laser beam is shot out across the night sky from the Observatory to mark the location of the Prime Meridian. Other bold (some say brash) 21st century additions to the area include landmarks such as The O2 entertainment complex (previously known as the Millennium Dome) and the Air Line cable cars, which offer scenic transport across the Thames between North Greenwich and the Royal Docks.
