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 43 times, seen 118 different beers and tried 31 of them.
