Visits Details

Evening visit shortly after the recent refurbishment re-opening. Only change I noted was even more hiked up real ale prices and a smell of fresh paint. Places like this, at these prices, will make a revisit a rare occurrence.

Late evening visit.

Orkney (Sinclair) - Dark Island4.60GoodA ridiculous price of £5.05pp for the suburbs, which will not entice a foreseeable return visit

Evening visit until 10.30pm close. The quiz was just ending. Interesting building to roam. Clearly a tourist honeypot.

Late-afternoon and, I think, my first ever visit to this large and comfortable pub. Lightly-populated at this time on a Monday.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Adnams - Ghost Ship4.50GoodIn very good condition, but perhaps not quite as full-flavoured as usual (mind you, I am suffering from a bit of a cold).

Evening. Quietish as the students are away. Nondescript service and unwelcoming.

Evening. Complete transformation since my last visit when had lots of little partitioned off bar areas. Excellent live rock group whose rendition of Free's All Right Now was my pick of their tributes.

The pub is found in Greenwich, Greater London, SE10 8NA.

In Greenwich High Road, an imposing detached building that was separated into a number of small partitioned off bars before the gentrification of the district and opening up of the pub into one bar. Conservatory at the rear. The pub at one time owned by Convivial so sold Botanist Brewery beers from another of its pubs. Pub freehold was reported as for sale in October 2013 so ownership and beer range may change. A local newspaper subsequently reported in November 2013 that this house had been purchased by Mitchells & Butlers. Closure of the Botanist Brewery means its beers are no longer sold here and the beer range is now standard M&B list fare. 5 handpumps. Fully refurbished in April 2022. Expect to pay through the nose for beers here. Card payment only, no cash accepted.

We have visited this pub 6 times, seen 13 different beers and tried 6 of them.
