The Old Brewery

Pepys Building Old Royal Naval College Greenwich London SE10 9LW

Opened by none other than Boris Johnson in 2008 (but don't let that put you off), you could stumble into the Meantime Brewery's Old Brewery bar and restaurant by accident after visiting the local tourist office and next door museum displays. Worse things will have have happened to you if you do, as this microbrewery's combination of raucous beer hall, handy café and decent dinner venue is pretty successful. There's a bit of something for everyone:  it's a handy pitstop during the day, when it functions as cafe-bar serving a basic menu of bar snacks, oysters and seafood, burgers, sausage and mash and fish and chips; at night the lights are dimmed and it turns into a posher restaurant, serving equally hearty food for higher prices – you can still have fish and chips and steaks but could also choose rack of lamb or a sea bass fillet. There's a beer menu too, of course, featuring the brewery's own craft beers as well as a great selection of mainly Belgian ales.
