The Market, Greenwich
our final review
posted by dionysus on 11/1/2005
One might be forgiven for thinking that upon entering an establishment with such a name, one would be greeted by the sort of hubbub, colour and character one normally associates with market pubs. This, sadly, is not the case. In spite of the fact that Greenwich market was in full swing outside, the inside does not seem attract much of the passing tourism nor indeed many of the traders working nearby, perhaps this may be partly attributed to the pub's rather unappealing exterior. This (coupled with the curt, indifferent bar staff on the day of review) renders the atmosphere somewhat cold and hollow. On the plus side however, old church pews (remnants from the Firkin days), plenty of tables and the fact that the pub is split level, means there's always a good seat to watch the sport on the large TV screen opposite the balcony. Just make sure you bring someone to watch it with. (ex Funnel & Firkin)

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) and the road turns into Greenwich High Road. The Market is a short way down on the right just past the cinema.
