Greenwich pub reopens as part of community cooperative venture

A Greenwich pub has reopened under a new name and under new ownership after a difficult few years.

The Star and Garter had spent the best part of a year closed but is now up and running as The Star of Greenwich.

Located in the shadow of Greenwich’s power station on Old Woolwich Road, the pub has plans for a number of initiatives after reaching a fundraising target in recent months.

Co-working spaces have been suggested during the day to compliment the usual pub operations. Profits will be reinvested for community use.

I popped in enjoyed a warm welcome. It was great to see it busy and the future promises a great place that could offer much to the community.

An event to celebrate the marathon has been on today too. Go pay them a visit.


Running a site takes much time and cost a lot of money. Adverts are far from enough to cover it and my rent.

I've lived in south east London most of my life growing up in Greenwich borough and working in the area for many years. The site has contributors on occasion and we cover many different topics. Living and working in the area offers an insight into what is happening locally.

  • Sounds not too dissimilar to Ivy House in Nunhead which is a massive asset to the local area. Good luck to them!
