Good pub with six German-style brews on tap and a host of lesser known international beers to boot.

Although its thunder has been stolen by the newer Old Brewery, the Greenwich Union remains the spiritual home of Alistair Hook’s Meantime mission to bring German-style beers to the British public.

Six tap options – the likes of Helles and Wheat – complement two dozen or more international labels by the bottle, including the little-seen Schneider Aventinus, Aecht Schlenkerla Marzen (a smoked beer otherwise only available in its native Bamberg) and Cantillon Gueuze.

Food runs from a humble bacon butty to chargrilled steaks; you’ll also find wines, coffees and teas. Throw in imagery by Hook’s schoolmate Ray Richardson, framed covers from Picture Post and a small front terrace, and you have a very tidy operation.

Excellent beers, wines, food, ambience, service and setting. What more could you ask for? Love this place!

Good food and people! Fresh fish and chips. Great selection of local beer!

Once you've tried the beer at the Union you'll never be able to drink "normal" beer again.

Tremendous beer, great food, extremely friendly staff. Add in that they're dog friendly and have a garden open all year round (heated), and that's everything to look for in a pub.

Lulu T

Serves Meantime, which we love! And really friendly staff, with great beer garden!

My favourite pub after a wander around Greenwich on a sunny afternoon. Hidden away enough to avoid the tourist hordes, you can enjoy a beer from their extensive selection in relative peace. There are several taps of Meantime, including a few seasonal oddities, and a bottle list from all corners of the world. Lovely staff and comfy booth seating top it all off nicely.

What can one want from a pub with great choice of beers accompanied with great food (ribs highly recommended) friendly knowledgeable staff, beer garden the list is endless!

Our favourite pub in Greenwich. Meantime on tap. Friendly staff. Nice beer garden. Excellent food. We're so lucky it's our local.

This has to be one of the best pubs around Greenwich - the trick is finding it! Great beer and fantastic service.
