Vanbrugh Secrets

We’re the Best Kept Secret in Greenwich!

A local Greenwich pub, The Vanbrugh is quaint and welcoming, and intent on offering the local community a relaxing meeting space with a warm, friendly atmosphere. The quirky exterior makes for a charming accompaniment to the quiet backstreets of Greenwich, but any eccentricity is complemented by tradition with delicious, hand-prepared pub food using locally-sourced produce, and a wide range of fine wines and real ales.

The staff are sociable bunch from all necks of the woods and have come to know many of the local residents by name, always stopping for a light-hearted conversation and making new faces feel right at home. We understand that the Vanbrugh’s visitors come to unwind from the hustle-and-bustle of everyday life and to spend time with family and friends, and providing a space that makes this possible for every member of the community is our priority. The Vanbrugh is also a Dog Friendly Pub, with our resident pub dog Amber seeing over the visiting community; so you can bring the Whole Family down for a couple of drinks and some delicious food.

The Vanbrugh’s charming and peaceful ambience is already a delightful compliment to the dynamism of maritime Greenwich. With our fairly recent extension and Fabulous Beer Garden, we’re the perfect place to enjoy this Summer’s Sunshine and provide the perfect shelter from the rain!

Our aims are simple; to make the time you spend with us as memorable as possible by serving up great food, pulling a great pint and inspiring great times. If that chimes with you you’ll want to seek out our local greenwich pub.

Only a 15 minute walk from the Cutty Sark and a 5 minute walk from Greenwich Park, The Vanbrugh gives you that chance to escape the crowds of tourists and experience a real traditional English pub and enjoy a proper drink and yummy food with the people you love.
