Roger Button left this review about Vanbrugh Tavern

Named after Sir John Vanbrugh, playwrite and architect whos work is represented by Blenheim Palace, Castle Howard and Greenwich Hospital among others, this back street pub can be found tucked away near Maze Hill station. The initial impression are of a slightly gastro trendy bar with little traditional pub aspects. The interior has been modernized in a “seen it all before” way with plain dark walls and a an abundance of grey paintwork. A flat screen is mounted in one corner and some local artwork for sale adorns the walls but other than that there is little of note. The bar area is quite small and cramped and seating is limited. Beyond to the right is an extension housing a spacious dining area and running alongside, a permanent marquee structure with mainly sofa seating. This leads to a pleasant patio with covered benches, some open air sofas (weather permitting), trellises, a tidy lawn area and BBQ.

Overall I found the place pretty bland and there is little on the beer front to attract anyone looking for anything beyond the mundane; just the 2 ales – Greene King IPA and London Pride (as a guest!) and m y pint was just about bordering on undrinkable. I can see the appeal to some but at best the place is OK for a couple of pints in the garden before it gets busy but that’s about the limit for me.
