Greenwich town centre pub changes proposed

The Spanish Galleon pub in Greenwich town centre could see changes with a new planning application submitted.

The bar area would be changed and roof replaced at the rear conservatory.

Listed at Grade II in 1973 the building dates back to 1836. It’s currently operated by Kent brewer Shepherd Neame.


A Heritage Statement estimates a rear extension dates from the 1980s.

Changes listed include “taking down existing glazed conservatory roof, replacing with new rafters and natural slate pitched roof” as well as a “new overbar above existing bar servery.”

“The proposed overbar will consist of matching material and colour to the existing, modern bar, to ensure the proposal is in keeping with the existing internal character of the listed building”.

Running a site alone takes time and a fair bit of money. Adverts are far from enough to cover it and my living costs as a private renter.
