SquareMeal Review of The Old Brewery

For almost 300 years, they’ve been brewing ale at the Royal Naval College in historic Greenwich. Maintaining that tradition, its gleaming vats forming an impressive backdrop to a tasteful new café/bar, is the Meantime Brewing Company, formed in 2000 to great acclaim. On offer are complex wheat beer, pale ale, stout or Helles light lager, or any of 60 global frothy-tops – US brewer Anchor’s Old Foghorn & a strong cast of bottled Belgians that includes Rochefort & Westmalle Triple. Otherwise, a concise wine list includes Latin American whites from £4 a glass. Wraps & sandwiches, beef & (Meantime) ale pie, ploughman’s lunch & fish & chips form the basis of a daytime café menu, & a fuller evening dining offer has been wowing SE10.
