Evening visit until midnight close followed by un-necessarily aggressive shooing out of customers for no explained reason.

Evening visit until midnight close. Much less hassle to eject evident tonight - much more welcoming and still all just about everyone left "on time".

Evening visit until midnight close. Odd how 150 yards away a pub in Greenwich Market had closed early having had no customers for two hours but this place was thriving.

The pub is found in Greenwich, Greater London, SE10 9RB.

Located in the very heart of central Greenwich in Creek Road. It is effectively part of the Cutty Sark for Maritime Greenwich Docklands Light Railway Station complex. Advertises some of the latest Wetherspoon closing times anywhere. This Wetherspoon pub takes its name from the clock fixed to the gate of the Greenwich Observatory, in 1851, which is known throughout the world for telling Greenwich Mean Time. 10 handpumps in 2 banks, each of 5 downstairs, and 4 more in the upstairs bar which has more limited opening hours.

We have visited this pub 30 times, seen 94 different beers and tried 25 of them.
