“Old style small pub in no tourist area. Walked past it from Greenwich to Canary Wharf and as that a nice waterhole. 1 cask 8 taps. Courage Best, Camden Pale ale, Orchard Reveller.“

66 /100 26 FERRY ST,


We visited here on the final leg of the Thames Tipple a journey from the source of the Thames through to pretty much the end of the river, taking in some 150-200 pubs en route and taking over ten years. Our visit was Saturday 22nd October 2016.

I understand from a couple that we got chatting to who lived quite local that The Ferry House has only recently re-opened having been closed for two and a half years. It sits on the southern tip of the Isle of Dogs peninsula and though not quite by the river its very close, Its about a five minute walk from the Isle of Dogs end of the Greenwich foot tunnel just head left on exit, if it was right by the river (which it isn’t) it would be facing directly opposite Greenwich. It’s also close to the Island Gardens DLR stop. It sits on a corner at the end of Ferry Street a quiet residential street and as you will note from the various signage here and there, this is an old Courage pub. Inside its quite a cosy pub, the bar sits quite centrally and can be accessed from three sides. I didn’t really explore the place other than to use the toilets but suspect that it is mainly just the one room.

The beer choice was slim pickings I think that there were three cask offerings however it was nice to see that the local Brockley Brewery just 2-3 miles south of here was represented with Brockley Pale, a fairly standard bitter but it was in very good nick. I noticed that the aforementioned couple were drinking bottles of Sierra Nevada Pale and a Brooklyn bottled beer, so perhaps the bottled selection may offer more choice. The female staff member was really friendly, locals were very friendly and chatty and intrigued to hear about our journey. I liked it here and I have added it because the beer was well kept, local and more than anything I would like to see the place do well after its recent re-opening earlier in the year.
