Greenwich Tavern reviews

By Amy M.

I stumbled upon the Greenwich Tavern by accident over the weekend whilst looking for somewhere for lunch. The menu looked OK and it had a fair amount of people inside so we thought we would give it a shot. I was very much pleasantly surprised! The food was delicious and exactly what I had been looking for. Luckily they were good portions which suited my other half! We also decided to stay on to wait for friends and sample a cocktail each. They were fab! By the time our friends had arrived we had managed to get such a comfy spot we ended up staying till about 9pm! I have overlooked this pub for months but will definitely be frequenting it more often now!

This excellent bar and restaurant offers three storeys of sheer comfort right next to the idyllic confines of Greenwich Park.

The Venue
With its all-white exterior looking out on to picturesque Greenwich Park and spanning three floors, the Greenwich Tavern on King William Walk is undoubtedly the gold standard for pubs and restaurants in maritime Greenwich. Its ground floor is divided into a down-to-earth bar area complete with rustic wooden tables and lofty window seats, and a raised mezzanine level with comfortable leather sofas for more sedate conversation – a small beer garden can also be found tucked away to the right hand side. The bar itself is decorated with archaic lanterns and a mirrored back-counter, while the entire room is adorned with gilt-framed mirrors, wrought-iron railings and black and white framed prints. The main eye-catcher, though, is the park itself, visible through the large windows and particularly enticing on sunny days.

The remaining two floors continue the simple but effective décor – the restaurant area can be found one flight up, complete with its own bar and stylised white walls covered in Greenwich-related pictures. This space can be hired out for special events, and rearranged according to personal whims, but for everyday use it is both functional and comfortable. The top floor is a real hidden treasure – the “Treetop” is a converted attic space with sun-drenched skylights, wall-to-wall carpeting and a fleet of deceptively snug armchairs and sofas. Cosy and intimate, it is a great place to fritter away a lazy Sunday, before an evening in the park.

The Atmosphere
In keeping with the lay-out and location of the Greenwich Tavern, the atmosphere is largely sedate but extremely pleasant, with a healthy turnover of park-goers and Cutty Sark enthusiasts rubbing shoulders with seasoned locals. The customers are usually middle-aged and well-off, although the nearby University provides plenty of custom too, and the place is particularly animated on sunny days and weekends. The staff are helpful and efficient, the service is top-notch, and even the music seems well-judged rather than mere muzak.

The Food
Although the menus in both the bar and dining areas vary on a daily basis, the emphasis is always on locally-sourced produce, and the results are invariably impressive. Revitalising tidbits such as croque-monsieur or Caesar salad (£8) are probably your best bet for a light lunch, and more substantial offerings like the house burger or Thai-style mussels (£10-£12) prove to be unaffected yet delicious dinner options. A small but perfectly formed dessert menu, once again dependent on seasonal ingredients, caps off an extremely alluring selection.

The Drink
As well as a solid cellar of wines from around the world – for as little as £4 a glass – the Greenwich Tavern also specialises in cocktails including champagne bellinis and a local twist on the bloody mary (£6.50-£7). The latter are two-for-one between 5-8pm on weekdays, and as a matter of course the drinks selection (including Palm and Murphys on tap alongside more usual beers and ciders) is surprisingly inexpensive given the tourist-trap potential.

The Last Word
Inviting, versatile and ideally situated, the Greenwich Tavern caters to your every need and should be a definite port of call for sight-seers and locals alike.
