|Tuesday 23rd December and I needed to pop into Greenwich to pick something up for the wife, with a wide range of pubs to choose from for a quick pint I decide on Richard 1st.|
I haven't been here for at least 16 years when I lived in Greenwich. My memories of my last visit are hazy but I have been aiming to come back here for several years now.
A thoroughly modern Young's pub with food a plenty. Island bar to your left or right as you enter depending which door you use. The 2 rooms are split by a dividing wall opened up by a couple of arches.
Out the back is a large open plan dining area and a conservatory aswell as a large beer garden, the dining room was quite busy during my lunchtime visit.
The bar had a good selection of ales with Special and Bitter from Young's, Session IPA and Oatmeal Chocolate Porter from Hackney Brewery & White from Portobello. I opted for a pint of Oatmeal Chocolate Porter @ 4.8%. Typical local price of £4.10 a pint but very well kept.
In addition to the cask ales there's also keg offerings from Portobello, Meantime, Camden and Wells. Lagers are Peroni, Fosters, Estrella & Heineken and there's also Aspall's cider. The fridges are well stocked with a good selection of ales and lagers.
Music playing softly in the background, chatter from punters and the sound of the coffee machine fill the air.
A very attractive pub internally that has been nicely brought into the modern world from my last visit. The area is non touristy and is 'real' Greenwich. If like me you haven't visited before or for several years now is the time.

|Have just seen the photos of the refurbished pub,what can i say.well just this what drugs are those people on at youngs .why not destroy another pub for a five minute wonder gastro pub (whatever that bollocks means) . I am not a Luddite and I know pubs need a refurb once in a while but come on you they have as far as I can see totally torn away many many years of tradition the one thing England is so rightly proud of . Couldn't they have found a pub that was closed down etc and turned that into a gastro pub ? Jamie Oliver and others have a lot to answer for. All concerned for this total lack of taste and thought should be ashamed of themselves. This is not the rantings of a victor meldrew type ,but I am so bloody angry this was such nice trad boozer now FUCKED .oh by the way if you ever want it back the way it was I have stacks of photos for you to use .Gastro pub my arse |

|Massive refurb, now full on gastro. Large conservatory eating area on the rear so the garden's smaller. Ale was good...five pumps on.|

It's Saturday night and a bit busy. So they're giving out plastic glasses. Because otherwise "it would take time to get them back in and wash them".
Well dearie me. What next - "it's a bit full, you can't come in"? Probably not, but you will have to drink your beer from a plastic glass.

|We have been regular visitors to Greenwich for many years and every trip seems to finish in the Richard I. Apart from it's great location, garden, service, food etc. - the quality of their Young's "Ordinary" is consistently perfect - one of the reasons being that they simply sell so much of it!|
