Excellent bar with a good range of Meantime beers some of which are not commonly seen elsewhere. Also a good range of bottled beers. Worth a short walk out of town.

Slipping...no Conor or Alex, two great, senior ex-staff members who took this place to another level. Poor recent refurb with very harsh lighting installed, taking away pub’s cosiness. Never think it’s a good idea, either, to have someone from Meantime head office using a booth...More

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
