Greenwich’s Enderby House pub still not ready to open

You may have wondered why a planned new pub by the Thames in Greenwich at Enderby House has taken so long to open since plans were first mooted almost two years ago – when a summer 2018 opening was the aim.

Well, an application this week may give a clue, as it states a need for “timber decay/dry rot eradication works including removal of windows, application of fungicidal treatment and reinstatement of windows.”

Enderby House is a grade II listed building dating from around 1835. The pub’s operation is to be taken on by Young’s who already run the Cutty Sark, Richard I and the Old Brewery which was purchased from Meantime.

Young’s have a license for the premises since October 2018. The pub would have been located beside a cruise liner terminal until plans were scrapped last year.

As a private renter with a young family, the cost of living is extremely high.

    Thanks Murky. We’ve been wondering what the hold up was.

    I think the location of the Enderby House Pub would make an ideal location for a pub/restaurant or a pub that serves pub food all day. So you an enjoy a quiet drink and a bite to eat.

    The grade II listed building looks great in the photo. Once works completed it will be a very popular venue for Enderby Wharf residents.

    It is nice to see the building retained in amongst the new developments.

    Nice to see the building kept and brought back to life. However, I cannot say its currently located in the most pleasant of places. The new apartment buildings lend a sterile air to the area, in stark contrast to the life of the river.
