Dear diners, for Christmas bookings of groups larger than 7 people, please call the restaurant directly.
The Vanbrugh is a classic London backstreet pub situated in the heart of Greenwich at the corner of Colomb Street and Woodlands Park Road. A bit of a hidden gem, The Vanbrugh truly is Greenwich’s best kept secret. Not for long. Word of mouth is sure to prevail after diners sample The Vanbrugh Chicken Burger, a popular feature on the pub’s very affordable menu. It’s a seasonal menu, too, and prepared in an open kitchen so you know – and can see – that you’re getting only the freshest food to accompany a pint of one of their many craft beers. The Vanbrugh’s in-house Indian Pale Ale is as good a place as any to start.
Best Sunday Roast in Greenwich. Favourite pub for a relaxing afternoon/evening. Amazing staff. Consistently good. Perfect in the summer for a bottle of wine in the garden and just as good in the winter for a warming roast.
Excellent food and good service, would recommend to others. Slightly more expensive than standard pub fare but high quality throughout. The wild mushroom polenta cake was delicious.
The food was very nice as was the general ambience. The problem was that it took a long time for our food to arrive ie about 35 -40 minutes. Not sure the kitchen could cope with the number of guests.
It’s been tucked away in Greenwich for over ten years now, but the Vanbrugh is going from strength to strength and it won’t be long before this public house and kitchen becomes London’s worst kept secret. Let’s see what we can do to help the coming revelation. The Vanbrugh is housed in a no-nonsense brick building typical of London corner pubs. Yet inside it’s all sensibly refurbished style, with an open kitchen so you can see where the action takes place. Grab a pint of one of the many draught and hand-pull beers on offer while you salivate over the menu. It’s all incredibly good value, and the Vanbrugh makes sure there’s always fish and vegetarian options available.
The Clarkshaw’s Phoenix Rising beer-battered haddock fillet is a stellar example of what ’s on offer at The Vanbrugh, and patrons are encouraged to take note of both the Vanbrugh Classics and the regularly chalked-up and changing specials. As the proprietors say, The Vanbrugh was made for Sundays – there really is nothing better than taking advantage of a rare clear day in London with a little relaxation in The Vanbrugh’s marquee area. Plus, The Vanbrugh do Greenwich’s best Sunday Lunch.
