Adjoining the Greenwich Union, this cosy, two-bar Youngs pub hasnt felt the need to trendify. In fact, its very old-school approach has encouraged loyalty in a conservative clientele.
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.
Greenwich’s Ashburnham Arms nicely bridges the gap between contemporary bar and old-fashioned local.
Thanks to the Thames lapping against its wall and the resulting busy tourist trade, this place is something of a local landmark.
