Oh Greenwich, you never cease to impress me.
For those who know me, you’ll know I can’t quite stop banging about how incredible Greenwich is. The history, the market, the museums, the restaurants, the park – it’s everything you want all in one place. For me, it’s also the perfect excuse to hop on the DLR more often too and an escape from the sometimes overwhelming centre of London.
On this occasion, The Old Brewery relaunched and I was lucky to have been invited to see it for the first time.
Relaunched just in time for the summer months, The Old Brewery is a gastropub/bar/restaurant located within the walls of the Old Royal Naval College. Only moments away from Cutty Sark tube station and a stone throw away from Cutty Sark, the Old Brewery is just as beautiful as the building that surrounds it. I particularly like the decor which recalls Greenwich’s famous maritime past. It might just be me. I have a weird fascination with ships!
The food was excellent as you would expect from a Gastropub/restaurant using the best of seasonal British produce. I thoroughly enjoyed the mini-sliders but the fish & chips and mini roast beef and Yorkshire pudding weren’t bad either.
It’s more than just a gastropub, it’s a great place to hold events too especially with an outdoor terrace outside and an overhead performance area for live music. I was told that a wedding reception took place here just a week before my visit. Not a bad choice if you ask me!
Like I said, The Old Royal Naval College is beautiful itself and by the time you’re making your way back home, you walk past majestic buildings like these. Not a bad stroll.
Delicious food, great location, beautiful interiors and perfect for the summer months, I reckon I’ll be back pretty soon.
