A handsome pub and dining room on Colomb Street, a short walk from the centre of Greenwich. In addition to the food and drink, visitors head down to watch the big sport matches as well as for special events and the weekly pub quiz - there's even a prize for the best name. Good for when the grey matter's not working as well as it should.

The beer selection is good enough to attract the ale hounds of SE10, with three Meantimes on draught alongside the house brew (an IPA) and regularly changing guest beers on the hand pull. There’s also a great selection of bottled local craft beers, from the likes of The Kernel, Beavertown, Weird Beard and Pressure Drop.

The food menu is typical gastropub fare, with dishes ranging from pan-fried duck breast with blueberries, chive, risotto and watercress to racks of lamb, fillet steaks and pan-fried sea bass with asparagus spears and mussels cooked in white wine, shallots, garlic and saffron cream sauce. Sunday roasts prove popular, too.

One of those pubs that makes everyone feel like a local, add a great food menu (inc. gorgeous Sunday Roasts), huge drink selection, and events, and this is a rarity of a pub - delighted it's my local!
