Pub of the Week: The Spanish Galleon, Greenwich

Posted: 4th May 2016

The Spanish Galleon is a traditional pub in Greenwich, just a short walk from the Cutty Sark. The building, which survived both world wars with just minor damage, was designed and built by architect Joseph Kay in 1834.

Today, it is a thriving pub at the heart of the local Greenwich community, welcoming regulars, residents, local sports clubs, and the area’s many visitors, for a refreshing drink and bite to eat.

Inside, the pub is bright and airy, with a distinctive maritime theme, and a wealth of artefacts, naval maps and other information around the pub, illustrating its interesting history.

The Spanish Galleon is different to most pubs, in that it has a fish and chip shop actually inside the pub! The popular shop serves both take away and sit in customers, with their popular Shepherd Neame beer battered cod & chips, scampi and other favourites.

In addition, the pub has a menu of tempting pub classics, such as steak and ale pie, ham and eggs, and steak and chips. There is a choice of sandwiches, and a children’s menu. On the bar, you will find a good selection of wines by the glass, cask beers and lagers.

For sports fans, the pub shows televised football, rugby, cricket, tennis, golf and cycling on three TVs. The pub also has a function room for hire, with catering available.

Maritime Greenwich, a World Heritage Site, has much to explore – take a stroll through Greenwich Park, visit the legendary ship Cutty Sark. Stand on the Prime Meridian at the Royal Observatory, with a leg in both the eastern and western hemisphere, before heading off for a well-deserved lunch at this excellent pub.
