Pleasant service, food average at best and overpriced. Best left to tourists who won't be going back!

I had the fish and chips. Fish was fresh with nicely cooked batter. The chips were nice, but although they are chunky, it seemed there were few. I therefore thought it was over-priced.

Can't thank you enough for a lovely experience. Staff were really accommodating and made us feel welcome. Were attentive and served us all night. Moved us to a bigger table when it got a little crowded. Basically 10/10 and will definitely come back.

A warm evening allowed us to use the outside courtyard which is a friendly space. Covid precautions are quite good although one waitress’s mask had slipped a bit but the food servers wore visors. Food is good quality pub grub without much excitement. Beer is expensive but nice quality.

First of all our waitress was lovely and made us feel really comfortable. However the manager looked down on us and had created a rule that over 21’s cannot drink past 9’o clock in the evening. I’ve never been out for dinner/drinks and heard of this rule. Our waitress was really nice about the situation but the ‘made up’ rule made us feel very uncomfortable and we just wanted to leave even though when there were many other people drinking when we left. There was only 4 of us and only 3 of us were drinking however we were treated like we were a problem.

It was a lovely experience for a Friday evening!
Although we are still in a pandemic and a lot has changed - it was nice to do something normal!

Responded on 30 July 2020

Hi Latoya, Thank you so much for taking the time to leave us your feedback. We hope you had a nice time, and we're glad to have played a part in getting back to normality - although we appreciate it's still very strange times with all the visors and distancing measures! Hopefully things will settle down sooner rather than later so we can get everything back to normal, and we really hope we'll see you at the venue again in future!

Nice warm evening so we got to sit outside. The waiting staff wore visors but not many masks seen for guests. Spacing is good so pretty good for the plague years! Very nicely cooked pub food and a reasonable selection of beer.

We had a table outside. This pub enjoys prime position just outside Greenwich park. Pooches are welcomed with water and doggy biscuits. My little puppy enjoyed ppl and dog watching. Service is great. Food can be improved - no discernible truffle flavour in the truffle and parmesan chips, with a modest sprinkling of cheese. No Sunday Roast either which was a bit disappointing. Chicken and avocado salad was very good.

Thank you Nicole - we're glad you were well looked after! Unfortunately we're not offering roasts at the min for a few reasons. We're only able to offer a smaller menu as we're only able to have a limited no. of chefs at any one time due to social distancing (we've only got a small kitchen!). As roasts aren't typically in high demand during summer we decided to keep these off in favour of more popular dishes. Our roasts will be back once restrictions are eased! Hopefully you'll be back then!

Only good for tourist or very local families. If you live outside of Greenwich and you're a driver don't bother. Parking is £1 per 20 minutes!!! Even on Sundays. Not worth it. Ended up driving to a different pub.

I brought my family during a family vacation, after having tried the place some time ago. It is the nicest pub next to the park, we had a lovely meal and staff has been friendly and careful.
Loved it and will come back!

Our party of 6 booked for a late lunch on a Monday. We arrived slightly early and a table was free. The service was brisk, polite and efficient throughout. The selection of drinks available was fine for us. Some of us had starters, all had main course and some had desserts. All the food was well presented and arrived reasonable quickly. For such a 'tourist trap' location (next to the entrance to Greenwich Park) I thought the bill at less than £150 was very good value. There were no complaints and we would certainly return.

Our meal was somewhat marred by our booking being incorrectly recorded for 2pm, when we'd booked it for 2:30pm, so when we asked for our table at 2:30pm we were briskly told that the table had been given away (despite making ourselves present at the bar at 2pm...)
Once that was resolved, the rest of the experience was fine.

Not the most dog friendly pub I’ve been. We were told by staff that dogs are not allowed at the upper floor and we were moves downstairs. 30 min later a family happily goes up with a dog upstairs and it was OK.
I won’t be returning despite the good food.

The Greenwch Tavern is very good for families bringing children. The food selection is good and their food came first, keeping them quiet. Our Sunday roast dinners were very good, except that my beef was stringy and chewy ; I expected better for £18.
The service was excellent. We had a table overlooking the park. Overall, a nice occasion

The pub has stand out character and the staff are super friendly! The kitchen was meant to close at 6pm (even though we had made a reservation for 5:50pm for food!) but they kept the kitchen open for us. The food quality was really good, prices more than reasonable and the atmosphere/location was superb. Will be coming back again for sure!

So disappointed with brunch here today! The bar staff 'weren't aware' we were there for brunch dispite clearly saying when first ordering our food.
There was a wait to be serverd for more prosecco which wasted our 2 hours- this was for a friends birthday so was hard to enjoy. The bar staff got the orders wrong and made us feel uncomfortable when we asked to change.
I'm really not one to write reviews but felt I had to.
Such a shame- wouldn't recommend brunch here at all!

The food was very poor quality, portions small, wouldnt accommodate childrens portions and the food was cold and overcooked. Obviously cooked a long time before it was served and kept slightly warm. When we commented to the staff they said it wasn't cold!!!
