O'Sullivan's Bar, Greenwich
our final review
posted by dionysus on 21/12/2003
Not that its name would suggest otherwise, but as soon as you step through the door of this cosy little establishment, there is no doubt left in your mind that here is a pub with its roots firmly planted deep in the Emerald Isle. Its walls burgeon with photographs, pictures and other paraphernalia of a Celtic theme and whilst the patrons' Irish lilt has been replaced by a South London brogue, the atmosphere is friendly and genial. Fortunately, this is not one of those plastic 'Oirish' pubs and, judging by the state of the furniture, has been around long before the marketing departments of the larger breweries realised that Irish themed pubs were the way forward. The disappointing lack of traditional music is made up for by a good pint of Guinness and the opportunity to wash it down with a drop of Powers whiskey.
now no longer a separate segment of the Mitre

Turn left immediately upon exiting Cutty Sark DLR and then right onto Greenwich Church Street. Follow Greenwich Church Street around the corner (against the flow of traffic). Once you meet the Mitre, follow the pub round and O'Sullivan's is annexed behind. Greenwich, turn left out of the station and walk along until you see the Mitre, then as above.
