Admiral Hardy Pub: Kiss Me Hardy!
This is a cool old pub located right at the gates of the Naval College. It is adjacent to the Greenwich Marketplace so it is a good place to wash down a few pints after twisting and turning through the maze of stalls and vendors. It has a high ceilinged and more open floor plan than most pubs. It has a couple of good sized sofas that we comandeered and lazed on while watching the Wimbeldon Men's Finals.
This is a famous old Royal Navy pub that has been frequented by seamen for years but now they don't come too much anymore as Greenwich does not have the docks like it used to. It is named after the famous Captain (Then Admiral) of the HMS Victory during the Battle of Trafalgar. After Admiral Lord Nelson was shot by a French sharpshooter it is legend that one of his last utterances was to tell him, "Kiss me Hardy." Fittingly, there are large portraits of Admirald Hardy and Nelson on the walls.
The staff is the standard type for a pub. Not too attentive but just enough. They have the usual modest selection of beers and ales but their location is awesome.
Dress Code: From the eclectic mixed crowd of shoppers, locals, college kids and regulars it appears that just about anything goes.

This pub is right next to the Cutty Sark...its a bit dim when you enter...but if you head to the back theres a large outdoor seating area which is great in the summer. Serves food and has a large selection of beer.
Bar Du Musee
I used to hang out in here about 20 years ago...popped in recently...and it still has a kinda bohemian feel to it. They've extended out the back forming a glasshouse area serving good food. This is a good wine bar serving mainly locals, bang in the centre of town.
Up the Creek: Comedy
Up the Creek. Great comedy club in Greenwich. You must book tickets in advance. Also the price of tickets include's club disco afterwards. I have had many good nights at Up the creek.

This pub is in a small lane at the back of the Trafalgar Tavern. Its quite small...but is used more by locals.
As with most pubs in Greenwich this serves good food. I tend to go here on a warm summers evening, and have a beer or three outside...it gets very busy at weekends...but its normally a good crowd.
