There are really 3 parts to this place: a smallish bar, large restaurant/cafe-cum-brewery and large outdoor patio area. The bar is where to go if you are here for the beer. They have about ten taps (mostly keg, but also a few cask) which mostly cover meantimeís regulars and a couple of seasonals (American Quad when I visited). The bottle selection is decent with a variety of UK, US and good Belgium options. The restaurant/brewery area is large and actually quite touristy, given that it opens out to the Royal Naval College. If I were you Iíd stick to the bar or patio area in summer. Probably one of the best things is the tasting paddle they offer. A good place to take non-RB friends and family, but not for the hardcore.

Nice being place with exposed brick in an old building. One side is a cafe/restaurant the other side is the "bar" surprisingly the bar has an ok bottle list of mostly classic belgians. Bar serves up meantime, which I have to admit I really enjoyed. Not a big fan of meantime but donít know if it was they were so fresh from the source, but the being being served was very enjoyable. In terms of character or soul donít expect much.... There is a big wall on one side however with michael jacksons beer collection which makes things interesting...

Visited 21st August prior to Goldfrapp gig at the Old Royal Naval College. Good selection of Meantime beers plus kegs and bottles. Had the London Pale and the wonderful Mosaic (Kernel?). Nice atmosphere and seating outside. Expensive though

Cool looking with all the brew kit on display. Carry all the Meantime beers (obviously!), which Iím a big fan of. Maybe a touch expensive compared to some of my London favourites, but a great place for craft beer in Greenwich.

Have paid a few visits to the Old Brewery in recent years normally when Ive had family visiting as it fits in well with the Grenwich tourist trail. 2 rooms, 1 large with the brew kit etc on view, the other smaller where you can sit at the bar. Patio seating outside. beer range predominantly Greenwich as youíd expect with one or two of their offerings you Dont see so much at other London pubs. a few guest taps/bottles also. service adequate but sometimes it seems a little understaffed. the burger here was decent. clientele is heavy on the tourist - donít expect to see any cockerknees in this here pub!! I wouldnít schlepp out to Greenwich just to visit the old brewery but if youíre doing the tourist thing well worth stopping by.

So I came down here on my bike from Clapham expecting a bit of old style English historical nostalgia and I certainly got that from the Admiralty. The Old Brewery is slightly smaller than I was expecting with a smaller range of beers. The restaurant hall is more utilitarian than it looks in the publicity pictures, so I recommend coming when the weather is good and drinking in the garden. Range of beers is about 10 regular Meantime beers on keg and a handful of Belgian and American bottles. Kwakiutl, Brooklyn, Westmalle etc. come for the location and take in the history of this beautiful remnant of British Empire building and have a beer as you pass through.

Been here a few times now, obviously mostly Meantime brews available on keg, but some good other names always available both on cask and plenty of bottles to choose from. Service is friendly but beer and food is on the pricey side as you would expect with the localtion/clientŤle. Recommend the tasting paddle, essentially any 4 (3rd/pint glasses) of your choice of their selection.

Selection of Meantime on tap tried wheat, ipa and lager really busy. Had a decent bottle selection probably had scary prices, so didnít ask, not much of a brew pub nice surroundings though. Visited June 12
