The Mitchell Brothers' funky makeover of this formerly traditional boozer - just a gangplank away from another famous ship, the Cutty Sark - has proved a great success. An impressive range of beers (Schneider Weisse, Früli, Budvar, Paulaner, Franziskaner and at least six others) and well-priced selection of wines can be enjoyed in either the split-level back beer garden or the relaxed, multi-spaced interior. The food isn't shabby either, from full breakfasts (£5) through bar snacks (pint of prawns, aïoli, rustic bread) to solid mains such as glazed bacon loin with free-range eggs and chips.

Great location adjacent to the Cutty Sark, with seating for drinking and dining inside and out. For location it’s great but I do think there are nicer more charming pubs in the area, but the beer garden is nice in the summer, if you can find a table.


A very pleasant summers pub located near transport, Cutty Sark DLR, and with a view of the Cutty Sark itself. Wonderful outside area for lazing in the sun with a cold beer in hand. The inside of this pub is a bit hit and miss as it has a lot of tables how appears to have a poor layout and needs more order. This is a very busy pub so don't expect to get a table or bar table as soon as you get a drink. 

I noticed they rotate their beers and have guests beers available so will always be a nice surprise to see a new and unique beer or cider available each visit. I would suggest checking Gipsy Moth out if you are in the area but not worth a journey to go to.


This pub is fairly average. Its in a great location right next to Cutty Sark, with loads of room outside for seating. Great for sitting in the sun, it was really busy and hard to get a table even though there are tonnes of tables.

The food was average. It tasted fine, but for the price the portion size was pathetic. There was also massive delays in people getting their food to the point some finished eating while others waited - there was only 4 of us.

While place is in nice area service is a massive problem - you either accept what you get (whether it's good or bad) without any complaints or you are kicked out without any explanation. It's a shame because place has great potential.

This pub is beautiful on the outside and inside, with a range of drinks and a delightful food selection you can't go wrong here. A tad on the expensive side but it is worth it


My parents came over from France on what was probably the hottest weekend of the year in London a few weeks ago. So I decided to make us spend as much outdoorsy time as possible, which led us to Greenwich. They had never been and absolutely loved it, which must have a little something to do with the great lunch we had at the Gipsy Moth.
When we approached Cutty Sark, the enormous ship by the river, and saw the pub with the beautiful beer garden and BBQ at 1pm, I thought a) it's going to be packed and we won't find a table outside and b) it's going to be twice as expensive as any other already expensive London pub. False! It was not more expensive and boy was it tasty! I had a great sea bass main and the rest of my family was really happy with their meals. On top of the great food, the staff at the bar was super friendly.
I'll definitely go back to this pub next time I'm in Greenwhich!


The Gipsy is a good old-fashioned pub with great food, good drinks and lovely staff. The beer garden is especially lovely on a summer/autumn day and the Cutty Sark literally a stone throw away. It's only a couple of minutes away from Cutty Sark Maritime Greenwich station too which mean it's easy to get too. Not a bad place to spend your Sunday lunch catching up with mates.


I'm a regular at the gipsy moth, I go in there often. I don't think I've ever eaten there but it's one of my favourite drinkeries in London. Right by the cutty sark, and it has a lovely pub garden. Just good old honest pub loveliness, with a great view, good people and nice staff. 

The last time that I went here I had my jacket stolen, but I foolishly thought I'd give it the benefit of the doubt and try it again.

Having spent the evening in the outside area, at 10:30 they mysteriously and without warning locked us out. When we walked around and came back in through the unlocked front entrance, meaning to use the toilet before we left, they refused to allow us to do so in a needlessly confrontational way....and I really do mean needlessly and I really do mean confrontational.
Paying customers, who had quietly paid somewhat inflated prices throughout the evening, being refused the toilets in such a rude way, is totally unnecessary and bizarre.
These people are clearly only interested in obtaining cash on the given evening...and lack the intelligence to understand the value of repeat custom. To allow us one or two minutes to use the toilets as we left would have cost them nothing. They could have warned us that the pub was shutting - and they could have turned us away less aggressively.
Don't give them your money. It's humiliating to hand over hard earned cash to people like this.
You'd be better off heading to the multitude of other pubs in the area: The Lord Hood, The Coach and Horses, The Admiral Hardy etc. Perfectly good beer, facilities and atmosphere....but without the sociopathic staff.
