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.
