From a former coaching inn to a regency style pub – these are five of the oldest pubs in Greenwich for you to try.

Greenwich is home to some of London’s best historical attractions and buildings, but it is also home to some of south east London’s oldest pubs.

We’ve rounded up five of the oldest pubs in Greenwich from what is believed to be the oldest pub on the Greenwich Peninsula to a former coaching in dating back to 1691.

Here are five of the oldest pubs you should try in Greenwich:

The Plume of Feathers

First built in 1691, The Plume of Feathers is well known for being the oldest pub in Greenwich.

The pub was formerly a popular spot for people traveling with coaches and carts that would stop off on the way to Kent.

Although this pub is located in London, upon stepping into it you could easily mistake it for a pub in the countryside.

The pub still has many of its original touches including the claygate fireplace and historical paintings hanging on the walls.

If you’re in the mood for a meal, the Plume of Feathers also has great classic options like fish and chips, sausage and mash, and sticky toffee pudding.

Situated right by Greenwich Park this would make a great pub to pop into after a dog walk, especially as its dog friendly.

The Coach & Horses

Located in the hustle and bustle of Greenwich Market, this pub is within easy reach of many of Greenwich’s many independent shops and market stalls.

The pub has been serving punters since 1780 and is still a popular choice today with 825 Google reviews with a 4.2-star rating.

The pub also serves a traditional Sunday roast with vegan options available to.

Or if you fancy a light snack, you could also try their inventive flavours of scotch eggs from prawn cocktail to falafel fillings.

If you want to bring your dog along, you can, as they are one of the many dog friendly pubs in Greenwich.

The Pilot

For an old pub, The Pilot in North Greenwich has many of the mod-cons you could need including a large sports screen viewing area to watch your favourite matches.

From a statement on their website, the pub is believed to be potentially “the oldest surviving pub on the Greenwich Peninsula” according to a tablet outside the pub which dates it back to 1801 It dates back over 200 years, when it was first built in the early 1800s to serve coal workers.

But now, the pub has a more polished feel offering 10 boutique tyle hotel rooms to stay in and an outdoor garden.

It’s a short walk from the O2 and North Greenwich Station making it a great place to stop off at if you’re visiting the O2.

Spanish Galleon

The Spanish Galleon dates back to 1834 when it was first designed by Joseph Kay in the regency style during the reign of William IV.

The pub was refurbished in 2012 after many years trading and its survival during the Blitz with minor damage.

It’s located near local attractions like the Maritime Museum, the Cutty Sark, and the Old Royal Naval College.

If you’re looking to host an event, the pub also features a function room with its own bar and late license.

If you fancy a cocktail you’ll also be able to choose from their signature cocktail menu for something that takes your fancy.

The Mitre

If you’re looking for a dog friendly pub in easy reach of the Cutty Sark then look no further than the Mitre with its outdoor eating area and contemporary rooms if you’re looking for a place to stay.
