Found the customers friendly and liked to chat was the cheapest pub we had a drink in that day.Ok the pub might be a bit rough round the edges but what you see is what you get. Had a very good pint of Gypsy Hill

The Lord Hood is an L shaped local’s pub with a pool table by the entrance and a dartboard at the rear. Standard draught is available alongside two hand pumps that were drawing Bombardier and Courage Best. I didn’t spot any sport advertised, but there is a plasma screen that was showing the quiz program The Chase during my visit yesterday (Wednesday) afternoon.

I wasn’t overly impressed with this place, but I had just left the far superior and friendly Old Loyal Britons.

A fairly straightforward and unremarkable pub with no thrills or fancies that could best be described as being at the top end of the area's more basic, rough and ready pubs. It has had a bit of a rocky existence recently thanks to the continuous redevelopment in the area but has so far managed to escape the wrecker’s ball. In a way, its uncertain future may have saved it from becoming the usual touristy plastic modern bar like many of its neighbours, especially given its proximity to Central Greenwich and the local attractions.

The interior is knocked through into one wraparound bar with traditional décor, nautical pictures and a few historical snippets of Lord Hood himself (the 18th century naval hero, not the Thunderbirds baddie). There is a piano and dart board in the rear section and a pool table set back from the front entrance. I noted a sole TV and a jukebox and live jazz was once a regular feature but I didn’t see anything advertised.

The beers are quite basic with the usual suspects on keg and just the one ale (Courage Best) at reasonable prices and quality OK without being anything to write home about. There is a separate food bar but I didn’t get the impression that food played a big part and the presence of a couple of jelly bean dispensers on the bar probably mark the culinary boundaries for the regular customer base.

The atmosphere was surprisingly friendly especially given that the pub is opposite a rather unappealing Wetherspoons. The pub is handy for the “Up The Creek” Comedy club next door but generally it’s OK for a quick pint but not really a place that I would go out of the way for.
