Stopped here quickly with a friend to have a pint on Sunday evening. We both had the Meantime (Greenwich) pale ale which was really good. Pub was nice, a bit too loud with the music playing but definitely a lot better than most other pubs...More

Called in here for cocktails before going for a meal. There is a very limited range of cocktails on the menu and we asked for a dry martini, which we were surprised was not on offer. The staff member explained the policy is that they...More

I visited on a Saturday before football at nearby QPR. (The bouncer required sight of a home-end ticket to 'prove' home-fan status and therefore allow entry). A blackboard near the bar (left side) lists pints with annotations such as '4-3', '5.1' (etc). I assumed this...More
