This Youngs pubco building has a pleasing exterior with two curved glass bay windows,and a few benches outside.Clearly two building cobbled together ,the thin bar seperates two front rooms,which have traditional wooden furniture.However further back in the building on the right side is a seating area of booths and banquettes which then opens into a large conservatory housing a dining area with table service and glass doors onto a good sized beer garden.It has a Tardis effect,surprising given the small frontage.
The bar supports 5 handpumps,but the two best options on my trip (Southwark Bankside and Belleville Thames Surfer ) had available soon stickers which I really hate,if it's not available I dont want to know "what I may have won ".That left CW Youngs Bitter and Special together with Truman Lazarus (reasonable ) as the ale options.There are a few craft keg options including Beavertown Neck Oil.We all ate here and the food was well cooked from a decent looking menu with a slight premium price but this is Greenwich after all.
A superior ale line up would justify a higher score,but it's one of the better pubs in the area.

The Richard I is currently closed, but will re-open next month (July), promising a superb drinking and eating experiance. Being right next door to the Grenwich Union, I thought that the two might be merging, but that is not the case. No idea if it will remain a Youngs establishment.

Named after the famous Richard The Lionheart, this pub seems to be unchanged since the previous reviewer's visit last March, so there's little to add. From the outside you can see that it's two houses knocked together. Being a Young's pub I was not surprised to see Young's Bitter on (£3.54 a pint and in superb condition), but this one also had on Winter Warmer and "Royal Hill" which is another Young's branded ale. This is the second pub I've been in recently where a Young's ale has been presented as a "house" ale - a trend maybe? The guest was Hop Stuff Pale Ale. Obviously as a Young's pub it's a bit upmarket, with the menu items reflecting that. Main courses are around £10 a pop, with a selection of homemade pies - including "pheasant, smoked bacon and cider" (£11) and "wild rabbit and cider".

The Public Bar is less salubrious than its Saloon Bar neighbour, being traditionally bare-boarded and with more basic furnishings. Despite its upmarket feel, it's still a real pub, and is certainly worth a visit if in Greenwich.
