Naval gazers will find plenty to satisfy them in one of Greenwich's many maritime-themed pubs (sink one in the Trafalgar or Cutty Sark taverns). Landlubbers can head to the Greenwich Union, which specialises in German beers.

The Ten Bells
This longstanding Commercial Street pub remains a popular Spitalfields haunt. It's an attractive stripped-back boozer with a party feel – expect live music, plus quiz nights. The pub's original tiling is still in place, and is beautiful. Craft beer is a strong suit here, with drops including Camden Hells and Camden Pale Ale. Food features too, with Scotch eggs, bar snacks and Italian small plates in the upstairs bar.
