It's all change here at the Prince of Greenwich, previously a pretty standard locals' sort of boozer, this ornate pub has had a change of direction. The plusher furnishings have been replaced by simple, wooden furniture - overall the interior has been brought up-to-date, but the biggest changes are in the food and drink line-up. There's good real ale on the hand pumps and more upmarket beers, lagers and cider on tap. There's a pretty decent wine list and, of course, the usual range of spirits. There's a simple, well-prepared, modern British pub menu, that's reasonably-priced and the service is friendly, polite and informative. On the evening of our last visit, whilst the Prince of Greenwich's neighbours, were pretty crowded, there was space here to relax and enjoy some food and conversation. There's no real reason why these other pubs should appear to be so much more popular - we guess the locals around here are just creatures of habit. The Prince of Greenwich offers good drink, good drink and good service in decent surroundings, if you're in these parts you should give it a go.

Nice and friendly and much less crowded than the Greenwich Union and the Richard I (so far). My partner and I have become regulars over the past few months. A decent selection of bitters for me and the only pub in Greenwich where you can get a decent decaffeinated coffee. And a friendly dog called 'Pongo'

Popped in on a Friday lunchtime and the place was empty except for one couple eating. The Greenwich pubs on a weekday lunchtime are usually quiet but this place very quiet. More people came in to use the toilet than actualy buy a drink. The landlord told us they had only been open for a few months and that they had had a mixed reception from the locals. However, the beer was good and so was the food. The only thing lacking was atmosphere and it felt like we were sitting in a showroom. Hopefully this place will find it's feet (and a few customers).
