A decent spot down in the Greenwich area. They get some of the one-off Meantime beers on tap here, which is cool. Certainly worth a visit if you’re in the area.

Off the beaten track in the tourist haven of Greenwich, slightly up the hill on the road shooting off from the large brick clock tower as you leave the village area heading south west. This pub, right next to a traditional public house has a mix of the modern and traditional and it’s a predominantly polished wood affair with a stone flagged floor extending right through the ground floor of the building to the quiet beer garden at the rear. Food is served but obviously Meantime ales take a prominence. Other brewery craft ales are also served and there’s a fantastic bottle selection including plenty from the continent, but bring plenty of cash as it’s not cheap. This doesn’t deter people though.

Located but a short walk from Greenwich train station. Inside it is a fairly large, contemporary pub. The union is the Meantime brewery flagship bar, so unsurprisingly they have a large Meantime selection. They have 9 unique keg lines with predominantly meantime regulars, plus a few seasonals and guest beers. There were also 3 casks taps, all of which were fairly boring (Doombar and the like). We were offered tastes before making our selection. What I was quite impressed by was the well-chosen bottle selection with various interesting options from Kernel, De Struise and the like. We did not eat, but the food looked good. Much better than expected considering I am not meantime’s biggest fan. The must-visit when in Greenwich.

Very nice pub. Plenty of Meantime taps to choose from plus many guest ales as well. Staff more than happy to offer samples before purchasing as there is allot of choice. Didn’t try the food but looked/smelt very good, not too far from home so will definitely visit again. Recommended.

Visited the Union in June ’11 with my parents having done the usual Greenwich tourist sites.
Traditional looking pub with a couple of benches out the front and a few more outside tables at the rear.
It was a lunchtime visit and was pretty quiet, so lots of space and service was good - be interesting to head back here on a busy night to compare?!?
Beer wise - 3 hand pulls and 7 or 8 keg taps.
Being the Meantime brewery tap house, majority were own beers as you’d expect, but there was a couple of German and Belgian beers also available.
I had the ’Grog’ a 9% extra strong London Porter aged for 2 years in American oak casks.
It was top notch - and certainly woke me up as a first drink of the day at 12.30pm (served in a third pint glass)!
Also tried the Union which is a Viennese stlye lager.
Bar man was very friendly and literally gave me a sample of everything and we had a 20 minute chat about favourite bars and breweries in America (as I neglected my parents for a while)!
Food was fantastic also, great home made chips, right up there with the best.
Definately worth taking in if you’re doing the Greenwich tourist sites.

Very cool brewery in Greenwich England. It’s 10 minutes from the GMT building which is the “start of time” according to the locals. They have 12 beers on tap, 8 of which are brewed there. There are two MBC beers in bottles available for purchase and a really nice bottle selection of beers from the USA and Belgium. It’s quite impressive to see so much Lambic representation at these bars for good prices. Their beers are okay but they have a really nice food menu, outdoor seating and free Wi-Fi.

It was a sunny October Tuesday lunchtime (2011) when I visited the original tap house of Meantime: it was half-term week, so loads of well off yummy mummies with their offspring were eating in the extension and garden area. The main bar area towards the front of the pub being quieter and having no smells of fish-finger sandwiches and chips.
My wife, daughter and I had walked up to the Royal Observatory and Meridian Line before ambling down to here on our way back the Dockland Light Railway and into central London. Greenwich has a village feel to it and this bar extends that concept, a rich, expensive village with out a doubt, but it does seem to have a life (and charm) of its own: even though it is not far from London the city.
The pub has a canopied frontage with a couple of tables outside, inside you’ll find orange walls, flagstones and a small one roomed bar that has been extended with a sky lighted back bit which appears to be where the foodie tables live, this has eaten into the thin garden at the very rear. Toilets are down a flight of steep stairs.
The bar had three hand pulls and two large areas of taps: six of their own beers on tap and an experimental German wheat lager style on cask. Schonramer Dunkel and Pils took up another two of the taps, I didn’t make a note of anything else, but the two other cask beers were from a small independent brewery whose name escapes me as I write this.
The chap behind the bar was very friendly and allowed me to have a try of anything and everything, in fact he made me have one of all their brews he had on, even the experimental brew, which we both agreed hadn’t gone as well as they might have expected at the brewery.
Glad I made the effort to go out to Greenwich while down in London, this bar made it even more pleasant and I highly recommend visiting if you are in that area.
