Boasting a prime location in London at the heart of maritime Greenwich, the Spanish Galleon is an historic 19th century pub that sits just a stone’s throw from the Cutty Sark and on the main entrance to Greenwich Borough market.

Owing to its large corner plot on Greenwich Church Street, the Spanish Galleon is a spacious open plan property housing a central feature bar servery and two drinking and dining areas with open fire places for approx.50 covers in total. Its unique selling point is its very own fish & chip counter inside the pub which serves a constant steam of  hungry customers looking for traditional style fish & chips whilst in the area.

Upstairs on the first floor you will find a private function room for approx.40 covers with its own bar servery and toilets together with a well-equipped trade kitchen, dumb waiter to the first floor, wash up and prep areas and storage.

Roomy private accommodation is situated on the second floor of the property and includes two double bedrooms, a single bedroom, kitchen, lounge/diner, a bathroom and separate toilet.


Following pub closures due to the pandemic, the Spanish Galleon currently only trades from Wednesday to Sunday each week and food service hours are limited to 12noon until 3pm each day.

Available immediately, the Spanish Galleon is an exciting business opportunity with vast potential for growth and development and it would suit an experienced operator looking to take on a new project in London.
