Lovely little pub tucked away just off Maize Hill, previous good reviews are a good indication of this fine old pub

What a great pub. What a real find. This is surely the pub we have been looking for over the past 3 years. Spotlessly clean, happy friendly, staff 4 traditional beers. I had the Harvey's Sussex Best, and it was in really good condition. There was a quiz which is apparently held every 2 weeks compered by a quizmaster who was very entertaining, humorous and kept the evening buzzing. The food was great and reasonable priced, and the Christmas decorations were the most tasteful we have seen. Thank you Plume of Feather we shall return very soon.

Such a great establishment.
Hands down one of the best pubs in London.
Brilliant live music. If you are lucky you may even spot the odd celeb on stage or in the audience.

Great Beer, Great Food, friendly polite staff.

If you have not yet been to the Pelton, do it.

If you wish to pay exorbitant prices for your beer then that is entirely up to you of course. Two shillings for a pint was also way before my time .sixty pence was the price of my first pint circa 1979. And I have never had a Cornish pasti from a cellophane packet I can't stand them. Now a steak and kidney pie yes. Was the Richard the first going out of business? I was trying to make the point that with the plethora of eating establishments in greenwich did those brainless burkes at youngs have to destroy yet another truly great tradititonal pub to give us this . I don't think so . As I have said I am not adverse to Change or a bit of a refurb or even a change of direction as they did with the barley mow (now the hill restaurant) as this pub was going down fast , again great in the 80s early 90s and no I didn't rant when this happened. So please enjoy the richard the first but I'm afraid it's not for me and lots of others I have spoken too. It's a pub that has lost it's soul

Excellent pub, excellent beer, excellent food.

Clean, busy, but generally helpful staff with above-average product knowledge – valuable when many first-time visitors are accustomed only to the big national and international brands. And of course the range of said product is, as you would expect, first class. Although a bit slow to clear tables when under pressure – an extra pair of hands on a Friday would improve service and probably help, rather than harm, the bottom line.

Female-friendly, clean loos.

Most of the above is also true for its neighbour, the Richard I. Ignore the remarks from prejudiced and foul-mouthed commentators who are determined to live in the past, and must want to see pubs go out of business. Maybe they did not like being turned away for abusing staff when they discovered that the award-winning IPA cost more than 2 shillings a pint. Or made adverse comment on finding interesting and tasty food rather than a pasty from a packet.

Pleasant enough 'spoons. probably cheapest beer in Greenwich so worth bearing in mind if doing a crawl of the area.

been in here a few times over the years and always found it a decent enough place for a few pints, always served promtly even when it's busy, which is always a bonus in a spoons establishment
