Greenwich is best known for its maritime history and for giving its name to the Greenwich Meridian (0° longitude) and Greenwich Mean Time. It’s a popular spot for tourists, mainly due to Greenwich Park (where you can stand “legs astride the meridian”) and the Cutty Sark, a clipper ship that has been preserved in a dry dock by the river. The town centre of Greenwich is dominated by Georgian and Victorian architecture, and stuffed full of great restaurant choices from major chains to boutique bistros. There has been a market at Greenwich since the 14th century, trading five days a week (closed Monday & Tuesday).


You may also be in the area visiting the O2 Arena (previously, The Dome), built for the celebration of the millennium, but now a major venue for concerts and live events. Or you may be on business just across the river in Docklands, which is the new centre of business finance in London. But whatever your reason for visiting our corner of the capital, we hope you’ll manage to come in and visit us at the George & Dragon. Strangers are just friends you haven’t met yet!


We’re in walking distance of most of the main Greenwich hotels, such as the Premiere Inn, Novotel & Ibis; and from further afield our proximity to the DLR at Deptford Bridge means you’re never that far away,
