The Coach And Horses
The Coach and Horses is a long standing London Pub situated in a prime location for the worker bee or tourist to grab a bite to eat or pull up a pew or two. Opened way back in 1840 The Coach and Horses is one of the oldest pubs in Greenwich but has been hugely refurbished and renewed to remain both relevant and welcoming for those who trot through its doors. The Coach and Horses is a proper gastropub, and you can tell as soon as you walk in.
The pub’s interior has much of the character and comfort of a traditional pub, but with all the extra touches that you would need for a visit to a gastropub, South Greenwich Forum (southgreenwichforum.co.uk). The Coach and Horses has kept these hits and misses tally pinned on its wall. A pub that has been around as long as The Coach and Horses certainly has plenty of stories to tell. Situated in the centre of Greenwich (and less than a 10-minute walk from Oxo Tower Wharf), the rich history of the building is clear to see, whilst the skilled team behind the bar keep it efficiently ticking along.
Davys Wine Vaults
Davy’s Wine Vaults is situated on Greenwich High Road, just a short walk from Cutty Sark DLR station. It is a Greenwich institution, attracting customers from far and wide to sample their amazing selection of wines. As well as an extensive wine selection, Davys has a great wine list with a wide range of different areas and flavours. There are juicy reds from the Rhône valley, crisp whites from South Africa and many more. If you want to try something truly special though, make sure you sample the vintage port – it never disappoints.
Located in East Greenwich, south-east London, just a short bus ride away from the Greenwich Pier and the O2 Arena (just over the Greenwich/ DLR bridge). Davys is a wine bar with a difference. Sure, it has all the characteristics of a proper wine bar: wooden interior, cosy booth seating and candlelit tables. But it also boasts its own private wine vault stocked full of quality wines and an extensive menu of classic British food.
Davys Wine Vaults. Founded by Francis Edwin Davy in 1870, Davys is an example of the sort of variety Greenwich has to offer in the world of wine and tasteful dining. If youre looking for a tip-top selection of fine vino and some delicious homely British food, then Davys Wine Vaults is a great place to start. Davys Wine Vaults was founded in 1870 by Francis Edwin Davy. From humble beginnings the company soon became recognised as the premier wine merchant in Greenwich, providing excellent tasting services and a fantastic choice of wines for over a hundred years.
The Cooperage is a bit of a hidden gem in Greenwich. The pub has an eclectic mix of rustic character and modern design that creates a welcoming casual cocktail bar vibe. It is situated right underneath Davys Wine Vaults and across from the Greenwich South street rail station. Which means its conveniently situated for tourists and locals alike with easy access to town. Though the Cooperage, or the old wine vaults, is only 6 months old, it has already proved to be a magnet for the Greenwich crowd.
I have yet to find anyone who doesnt enjoy those wooden booths and heaps of candle light because most people just love to get away from their desks; however, you should expect a bit of a queue for this Greenwich chic bar at peak times. After a night out with friends in the lively area of Greenwich, we decided it was time for some sustenance before we headed home. Walking back into Greenwich station at around 1am, what better place to stop for a bite to eat than Davys Wine Vaults? It has been on my hit list for the longest time and I finally had the opportunity to visit the historic wine bar.
The Cooperage is the newest bar to hit the Greenwich scene. Located right underneath Davy’s Wine Vaults, The Cooperage is an underground cocktail bar that exudes a classic classy New-York ambience. Designed by renowned French firm Philippe Starck, it has been described as ‘a conceptual cocktail bar in perfect balance’. With three floors, a centre bar, and an outside terrace, the Cooperage is one of my favourite Greenwich pubs. Incredibly popular with both local residents and expat Londoners (and serving some pretty awesome burgers), this Greenwich pub is always buzzing.
Once you step foot in The Vanbrugh, you will feel a cosy atmosphere of ease. The interior has been designed to show off the various features of the traditional local: the fireplace and high ceilings, together with a cosy snug bar and also the lounge bar. Food is served every lunchtime until 7pm and there are plenty of dishes for everyone. Food is cooked in front of guests, not mass-produced and served at some other establishment, which means it’s hot and fresh.
During a typical night out at The Vanbrugh, whether you wish to have a quiet drink with friends, play some pool or simply enjoy your drinks outdoors in the summertime there are plenty of options. One of the best things about this pub is that there is something for everyone, from fresh and fizzy lagers to dark and delicious stouts and a range of traditional ciders to enjoy. With a myriad of festive events and some more unusual weekly activities like yoga on Saturday mornings you will find The Vanbrugh to be an unexpected prize, hidden away in the heart of the cosy residential Maze Hill area.
Conveniently situated just minutes from Maze Hill rail station, this local pub offers a truly hospitable hand to newcomers and regulars alike.

The Vanbrugh is a small, friendly pub in the heart of Maze Hill. They have a small beer garden – which luckily the weather has recently been accommodating for! The pub also hosts a few nights every week including quiz nights. It’s also nice to hear that the owner is very welcoming and really appreciates customer feedback and suggestions. • The MEGARA instrument – designed to study planet formation. • The INCA instrument – an infrared camera, designed to search for binary stars and extrasolar planets around nearby G-type stars.
The Pelton Arms
The Pelton Arms is a traditional pub housed in one of Manchester's oldest buildings. Its atmosphere creates a comforting country pub feel that you can enjoy with friends as you sit on the sofas and happy hour arrives. Happy hour lasts from 12. 30 5pm every day meaning that any time you want to take a break, whether its from shopping, work or exploring, you can head here and get 15% off your drinks.
Now its not the cheapest place in Manchester, but what it lacks in cheap drinks, it makes up with good service and even better food. The Pelton Arms is a great community pub with three distinct levels. The front bar offers traditional pub furnishings and décor, from etched mirrors to beautifully carved wooden benches. The central area, the focal point of most events this pub tends to hold, is furnished with large comfy sofas and armchairs including a sprawling green sofa that can seat over 20 people at one go.
While the ground floor areas are open plan, the top floor is an enclosed balcony with its own bar that also looks out over West Street. The Pelton Arms has been at the heart of the small but charming village of All Cannings for almost 50 years. Its a popular local spot with locals and is distinctly less gentrified than its nearby neighbor, the Fox & Goose. The pub itself owes its colour scheme to Lesley's father, who was its much-loved landlord for 28 years; on his retirement in 2011 he sold it to Tony and Lesley Carter, who are now running the show.
The Pelton Arms is one of my local pubs and the one that's closest to my home. It's a traditional, classic pub that's been a part of the Reading community for over 50 years. It's a place where the locals meet, chat and catch up with friends and share a few drinks (and some delicious food) whilst they're at it too. You will find that at The Pelton Arms you are always made to feel like a welcome guest in a friend's home.
The Admiral Hardy
Friday nights at The Admiral Hardy are one of the must visit live music destinations in Greenwich. On Fridays from 8pm, bands play and alternate on a monthly basis across three stages allowing for a great vocal variety. Bands and genres change regularly but include indie, rock and folk on occasion. This is the perfect place to head if you’re looking for genuine live music that is not tainted by microphones or that electronic distortion sound so common to sound checking these days.
The Admiral Hardy is situated in the lovely market town of Greenwich. It doesn’t get much better than Greenwich as far as I’m concerned. It is a fantastic venue and accommodates over 200 people in style. During the week, the venue offers a range of experiences from live music to comedy nights to quiz nights with drink to match! On Fridays, you can enjoy local bands performing live on stage showcasing all their talent and hard work.
The Admiral Hardy has to be one of Greenwich’s most unique venues for live music and entertainment. Plonked right at the top of the Greenwich peninsula, it can be a little tricky to find but that’s part of the charm. Once you climb up those stone steps you’re greeted by a wide entrance hall with both rooms on either side, downstairs covered by an impressive wood-beamed ceiling. The Admiral Hardy is a small, friendly pub on the Greenwich Peninsula.
It has a great big character, which is really what makes it so special. It has a welcoming atmosphere with cosy seating within the large bar area and an open fire crackling as you enjoy live music from artists in Greenwich, such as The Anchoress or Erika Stucky's 80s night. Our staff are friendly, polite and helpful and we pride ourselves on the cleanliness of our premises. • An instrument to support observer training – the Tycho instrument.
The Plume Of Feathers
Now, I couldnt talk about pubs in South London without making a point of mentioning The Plume of Feathers. This pub is so old its rumored to have been frequented by Charles Dickens himself, and even has a Victorian-era snug room to prove it. Built in 1830, The Plume has always had a somewhat rustic atmosphere and was once known as “Gentlemens retreat” – the interior embodies vintage elegance while at the same time maintaining a warm atmosphere that welcomes everyone to come on in.
From 1523 to the 21st century, the Pub has experienced its own ups and downs at its site. Although it is partly a Southwark Pub, the Plume of feathers almost traces all the way threw history back to East Greenwich. This isnt normally possible but the street that its on, the Royal Hill, used to be a river which goes through south London’s very heart of culture and heritage. If you want to settle down in London in a cosy, atmospheric pub right by Greenwich Park, then The Plume of Feathers is a fine choice.
This pub has everything youd expect from an old English pub: great food (the menu features the likes of sausage and mash); plenty of regular beers on tap; TVs where you can catch all sports events; and even a dartboard. The Plume of Feathers was first built in 1650 by Dutch settler John Richter, and has had a tumultuous past standing proudly today as one of the areas oldest pubs. Through a combination of fire and demolition, with two rebuilds in 1822 and 1872, the pub has been developed into what it is today featuring some stunning Victorian architecture.
The Prince Of Greenwich
The Prince of Greenwich is an absolute gem, tucked away from the public eye. This beautiful, picturesque hotel with breath-taking views is not only a delight to wander around but also provides the ideal romantic retreat for anyone wanting to get away from it all. You'll feel like you've stepped back in time with its grand, luxury décor that will instantly make you feel like royalty. The Prince of Greenwich is located on the north side of the river Thames, just off the Woolwich Road.
This page shows the building from Alkimos Road, but the Prince can also be viewed from the eastside of Point Hill. From Alkimos Road you can see a wide view of the Prince of Greenwich and with a bit of imagination it looks like its picturesque tiled roof is set upon an island. Prince of Greenwich is a beautiful old building located at the bottom of Point Hill. The building used to be a royal residence in the 19th century when it was known as Point Hill House.
It is still partially furnished with its original decor in tact, plus providing some modern facilities including tea and coffee making facilities and free Wi-Fi in parts of the house. Greenwich Park is one of the largest and most magnificent open spaces in south east London, with a parkway designed by William Chambers snaking through it. But no matter how many hundreds of thousands of people walk through the park every year, few ever come across The Prince of Greenwich pub in its hidden corner location next to the park's northeastern boundary.
The Cutty Sark
The Cutty Sark is now home to the highly acclaimed Tea Specialist, The Golden Leaves of London. Yes it's another new tea shop in London but what makes this one different is the very cute and quirky decorations, calming atmosphere and friendly service. I stopped by after a day at work to pick myself up a box of tea and sat inside drinking really rather nice tea. A lovely little place for a pre-dinner cocktail or quick mid-week break in the city.
As well as offering a fantastic bar, dining areas and a hidden roof terrace with wonderful views over the Thames, The Cutty Sark also boasts a contemporary museum and two celebration spaces. This makes it an incredibly versatile venue for any type of get together – from special anniversary parties to corporate drinks receptions. The Plume of Feathers is a charming Grade II listed pub in the beautiful setting of Greenwich. Close to Charlton Park, Eltham Palace and Fairlop Waters, the Plume is the perfect venue for a relaxing drink or a private celebration with family or friends.
