A sports lounge and restaurant with in-house hairstyling.

Has there ever been a more bizarrely multi-purpose drinking venue than this ginormous joint opposite Victoria Station? It’s hard to think of one. On the one hand, it’s a TV-filled sports lounge-cum-restaurant with pretty decent pub grub. On the other, it features an in-house barbers and ‘brow bar’ (yup, you read that right), open until 7pm and positioned near the screens, for anyone wanting their eyebrows threaded but unwilling to miss a minute of the footie.

Decor-wise, old books and hanging plants perch on dark wooden bookcases enclosed in a steel and glass atrium, as though someone had decided to open a library in a conference centre. There is a wall of bread bins and coffee mugs. An albatross is suspended in front of a neon sign. I honestly don’t know why.

The selection of craft beers on tap is pretty impressive, though. There’s a permanent selection from Ealing’s Long Arm Brewing Co, plus a rotating range that included offerings from small breweries like Wild Beer Co and Siren on my visit. For the hops-averse, there’s also a decent list of cocktails and G&T variations.

A decent enough place for a drink, then, but perhaps not a destination worth devoting a full evening to. The crowd of suited post-work drinkers nipping off after a swift one certainly suggested as much.

Greenwood says
Greenwood is Victoria’s newest and largest pub. Open seven days a week, Greenwood serves breakfast, lunch, dinner, pre-/post-theatre dining and weekend brunches. Upstairs awaits a sports fan’s field of dreams – a sports lounge boasting five screens, showing all domestic and international sport.
