Established in 1691, the Plume of Feathers is the oldest pub in Greenwich. It overlooks Greenwich Park, close to the Observatory and Maritime Museum and in 2013 was voted the best pub in SE10 by the Greenwich Society.

This warm and friendly pub, adorned with original claygate fireplace and features, enhanced by maritime relics and historical paintings, provides a feeling of being in a country pub while being in one of the world busiest and greatest cities. In the summer enjoy the beautiful award winning garden and food “al fresco”.

The Plume features a candlelit restaurant providing gourmet dishes as well as traditional pub favourites with an exciting choice of English and Continental Cuisine accompanied by an outstanding international wine list. Sunday afternoons see the best traditional Sunday Roasts served with fresh seasonal produce.

The Plume is listed in CAMRA’s good beer guide for the UK and we serve 4 real ales including Harvey’s Sussex Best Bitter, Adnams  and two excellent guest beers. We also have an impressive range of draught lagers, Stowford Press cider and bottled beers.


Who would have thought that just a few generations ago the landlord of the Plume of Feathers had a servant? But there she is, good old Elsie Bunyan, aged 29, in the 1911 Census. Name: Elsie May Bunyan. Sex: F. Relationship to head: Servant. Occupation: Domestic.

But times change and with it does Greenwich’s oldest pub. Today most people would say the Plume of Feathers ‘is a traditional boozer that is nicely tucked away by the park’. That’s its charm and that’s the way us locals like it. And it’s all thanks to Lord Romney.

The pub was built in 1691, and was ideally situated on the busy Dover Road as travellers left Greenwich. Coaches and carts would pass through the gatehouse of the Queen’s House (possibly paying a toll there) and on their left would be the perfect place to stop off before they headed towards Kent.


We have a beautiful mirrored restaurant here at the Plume of Feathers were you can sit and enjoy freshly prepared meals. We offer delicious snacks and light bites to a full fare menu.

The flavours of local and international cuisine. Classic dishes and the chef’s imaginative creations, always served with a smile. Tradition and lightness. A delight for the eye and the palate.



The Plume of Feathers has a football team and a golf society!
