The Greenwich Union

We love sharing our beers with you, but the safety and wellbeing of our customers, colleagues and local communities comes first and, following the UK Government guidance, we are temporarily closing the pub. We're sorry for any inconvenience this causes and we will resume normal service when we can. We look forward to welcoming you back soon.

Soon after it opened in 2001, The Greenwich Union, commonly known as 'The Union' - established itself as a cornerstone of Greenwich life. Winning well deserved critical acclaim from both local and national press, Meantime Brewing Company's first pub has become a firm favourite with Londoners and visitors alike. The Union steers clear of mainstream products and has kept true to the brewery's values by offering taste, flavour and choice right across its product range. All our beers are unpasteurised and brewed in small batches with much time, care and attention. In addition to our own range of Meantime beers, The Union is also proud to showcase a selection of over 150 beers from some of the world's top breweries to demonstrate many classic examples of great beer styles.

We have a passion for great beer and honest home made food and an enthusiasm for making you feel part of the 'Meantime family'. Our mission is simple: to offer the customer the best of what Meantime can produce in an unpretentious and friendly environment.

Our Beers

The Meantime Brewing Company believes in taste, flavour and choice. All our beers are unpasteurized, brewed in small batches and made with time, care and attention.  When it comes to beer we don’t think people in this country get a fair choice of taste and flavour, so as well as creating our own innovative beers and taking classic brewing recipes from around the world, we have selected a great range of bottled beers from breweries that we greatly admire to create an extensive menu of over 100 beers. We have no particular favourites, but it is fair to say that each and every one of these beers represent the uncompromising pursuit of perfection in brewing.


At The Union we aim to bring to our food the same philosophy and passion we bring to our beers. We offer an eclectic range of traditional and modern dishes taking inspiration from around the world and all our food is freshly prepared by our kitchen team. Where possible we source our ingredients locally, just as we do at the brewery. By bringing the same thinking about taste and flavour to the kitchen as we do to the brewhouse, we hope that the food and beer combinations we produce challenge and please in equal measure.
