The Yacht is often a better choice for a tipple along this stretch of the river, as, usually, it tends to be less crowded. The beer is good - usually four beers on the hand pumps - and there's a reasonable wine list of mostly new world varieties, to support a range of reasonably priced food, with main courses for less than 10. The pub has a welcoming atmosphere, but it can get crowded here at weekend when families come for lunch. If you're lucky enough to get a window table, a view from Borthwick Wharf in Deptford around to the Millennium Dome awaits. The Yacht may not be the ultimate pub in Greenwich, but it's a decent enough boozer all the same.

Tried for the Trafalgar for dinner, but the kitchen is closed on Sunday evenings. They directed us a half a block down a very narrow alley like street to the Yacht. I thought the food was outstanding actually. We had the fish and chips and sausage "sharing platters" and had an ale and beef pie for my entree. The beers were good - Speckled Hen and Wells Bombardier. The location is terrific. You could practically sense what it would have been like a 100 years ago in Greenwich along the waterfront and the river views were outstanding. I would visit again.

The walk to the pub from Greenwich DLR is a stunner, you can walk through the university or straight along the Thames we walked through the University and along the small lane that houses the pub.

Pub location
The actual pub is in a fantastic position right on the Thames and abouta 5-10 min walk from the Cutty Sark DLR station.

Whats it like inside?
Its a peaceful place, at least it was whilst were there, the pub sits right up against the river and you can hear the waves of the tide lap against the side of the shore as it comes in. No music whilst we were there but I have been before and there has been music and on occasion live music too.

Decor is traditional dark wood, with open fireplaces and cosy nooks. Theres a more formal dining room to the back but the best seats must be up again the window to take in the great view.

My favorite pub in the area: spacious, clean, outstanding view of the river. It is best on the weekday; I should imagine it's too crowded on the weekend. We usually try to go there for lunch, even though it's on the expensive side. When we first started going there, our usual fare of fish/chips/peas was excellent and huge. Now you are given the choice of sizes of fish, with corresponding prices. The beer selection is acceptable, though not remarkable. I'm not sure if the place might not be better termed a "gastro-pub." The bar man and wait staff were pleasant and efficient.

How can a chef srve a gammon steak when half of it is cooked and half is raw?



If they are incompetent, arrogant and really don't care.
