Unusual looking place with its attractive circular frontage in what appears to be a late Georgian building. The star here is the waterside seating with great views across the Thames to the Isle of Dogs (home to Canary Wharf and the er, Millennium Tent). Mildly impressive inside too, even if there’s a hotch-potch of past refurbs to contend with; vanished wood and undressed brick walls, the layout smooshed into various cosy areas with the central staircase (leading to the room with the impressive bay windows and view) taking prominence. GBG-listed, five pumps with four on; 2x Youngs, 2x Proper Job and Southwark Godiva. Like an idiot I went for the latter and ended-up with a flat aspirated mess (NBSS 1.5). Having secured an outside spot I decided to chance a different half and got a better, if not exactly stellar, Proper Job (2.5) and a ‘had better’ Guinness. Tl;dr “Nice pub, shame about the beer”.

A Thames side, brick built pub, it looks quite unusual from the outside with a large curved window covering the upper two stories and leaded windows with some stained glass in the doorway. A sign outside dates the pub from 1595. It hit’s a good size internally and although there are no views of the river from the ground floor, I did notice some signs to a riverside terrace, although we did not investigate this.

Internally it’s all one open plan room, although clearly it was separate rooms at one time as there is still some wood partitioning with a “Smoking Room” etched glass window. The curved and beamed ceiling is quite unusual and is presumably designed to tie in with the style of the exterior windows. Otherwise it’s quite traditional and cosy with old flagstones to the left and dark wooden floor boards elsewhere. Walling was mostly exposed brickwork with some sections clad in black wooden boards, and a small brick fireplace with a wood burning stove was off to one side. There were a few cosy spots with sofas and arm chairs as well as regular tables and chairs, and various old black and white pictures of the locale were dotted around the walls. A small selection of board games were sacked on a shelf.

The menu offered a decent selection of “pub grub” dishes, and we opted for the fish & chips with mushy peas. This was a decent dish with a good sized piece of fish, nice crispy batter and a decent amount of chips. A bit pricey at £15 though, but I guess that’s par for the course in this area.

Beers on tap were Horns Hopadelic, Truman’s Two Halves, Young’s Bitter, Young’s Special and Proper Job. The solitary cider meanwhile was Aspall’s. Drink prices too seemed expensive though, with two pints coming in at £11.35. Overall though, a decent little pub and well worth a visit.

Tris C left this review about Cutty Sark Tavern

The Union Tavern, renamed in 1954 upon the arrival of the eponymous whiskey sponsor is a bit off the beaten track, situated next to a disused power station.
A mixed bag internally: some of the beams to the fireplace surround are fabulous Jacobean members which were once part of a ship's superstructure. Thereafter black beams are of questionable provenance and the grand central staircase is relatively modern, designed to give the impression of having been salvaged from a galleon and leading up to two further floors (this is a three-storey pub), the top one being the Crow's Nest which offers spectacular views out towards Canary Wharf and the Millennium Dome. You can also see the powerful green laser beam which bisects the Greenwich Meridian and shines directly into the flight path of aircraft using City Airport - I thought it was illegal to shine lasers at aircraft... There's some more modern t 'n' g panelling, bare brick walls and a flagstone floor. Paint, where it is applied is the ubiquitous shade of smoky 'gastro blue'. The crowd in here is civilised and generally younger; some may be students from the University of Greenwich.
A friendly barman presided over a standard Young's array (Bitter, Gold and Special), thereafter Wimbledon Brewery's Phoenix and Truman's Zephyr which was good but perhaps a tad warm; at £4.25 a pint I suppose this is what you pay for a pub of this type and in this location.
I'd certainly come here if in the area - which happens about once every 15 years - if only for the view. This is vastly superior to the Yacht to the west and nightclub-cum-pub the Trafalgar.

To sum up: nautical but nice.
