Greenwich’s River Ale House wins SE London pub of the year

The River Ale House in east Greenwich has scooped SE London CAMRA’s pub of the year award for south east London.

A deserved winner too given the micro pub has brought a welcome addition to the area since opening in recent years.

There’s always a good selection on and though I visit less now that I have a little one, I do still enjoy the odd trip before a game at the Valley.

While west Greenwich seems increasingly monotonous with Young’s taken over pubs here and there, independent micropubs like the River have breathed fresh life into a night out.

They also do a good range of cider and have won awards for that.

Last year’s winner was the similarly excellent Dog and Bell in Deptford.

Congratulations to all at the River Ale House and if you havn’t been, it’s well worth a visit.



Adverts are far from enough to cover living costs and and pay to keep it going with hosting fees, URL fees and Theme costs adding into the hundreds of pounds.
