My latest visit was on Sunday when I brought the family here for lunch.

Table booked for 1.15pm, arrived a few minutes early, shown to our table that was already prepared by the young lady.

Good range of Sunday lunch, all starters and mains ordered were very good...drinks no problem, coffees ordered at the end and 2 of the 3 ordered arrived cold...changed with no hassle.

Based on eating here I would recommend it, as per my last review this is more of a restaurant than a pub.

£134.00 for 6 adults each having 2 courses, drink and coffee...good value for money.

I must have driven past this place 100 times or more over the years without ever stopping and coming in.

On Saturday I had the perfect excuse to visit, I was invited to a wedding being held here!

The building is absolutely stunning, it’s been tastefully and lovingly stripped back and has been well looked after.

The downstairs bar is of a fair size and was staffed by at least 2 barmaids / barmen at any one time. 2 lagers (San Miguel & Holsten Vier) on offer along with Adnams Lighthouse but unfortunatly this was off and wasn’t on the downstairs bar all evening. There’s also a cider on draught.

Prices not too bad and the food on sale smelt and looked good as did the cream tea and cakes selection.

For me this is more of a restaurant with a bar than a pub but just for the building alone it is worth a visit.

This is a lovely place to visit.
Beautiful surroundings, delightful ambiance, attentive and efficient staff, good food and a menu that should suit most.
Unfortunately, the portions are rather small so you wouldn't want to go there if you are particularly hungry.

This is a lovely building - Shame it is not a pub.

I went to the Tudor Barn on Saturday with my husband as I had heard that the restaurant was opening that night. When we arrived the building looked stunning with outdoor lighting and candles in the windows and inside it was really lovely. We both ordered the Rib Eye steak and was amazed at how well it was cooked and tasted! The service was attentive and very friendly and I cant wait to go back there again. Having been to the Tudor Barn when it was a pub I cant believe that this is the same building - the current owners have made it look wonderful and I really hope that it is a huge success. I highly recommend the food!!

This pub is soon to re-open as a brilliant place for drinks over a meal and has a function room which will be a fantastic wedding venue in splendid 16th century surroundings and a beautiful park.

Folk group still meet every Wednesday night, first floor. Bring your own booze and guitar, sing along Dave will be there.

Pub has now been taken back by the owners (Greenwich Council) and has been turned into a tea room!!

Oh my - what a waste of a marvelous location and building. I went in the other day at lunchtime to ask if they did food. I was told (politely) that they didn't do food. The Pleasaunce could do with a restaurant and this seems to be a missed opportunity. I don't really need a boozer in a park.

The place is closing down, the lease has been given back to Greenwich Council, that explains why the place has gone downhill over the years, the owner lost interest. Watch it now become a ruin as the chavs move in with their bricks and matches.

Fantastic historic building and great location and gardens, just a shame the interior and overall ambiance do not rise to the level of the setting. Still, OK for a pint, but could be so much better.

Every Wednesday, on the first floor, Eltham folk group meet, come and listen or bring your guitar and play a tune and /or sing a song.

what a shame this building is so wasted.visited on thursday 9th november with family members for lunch.the food was of good quality,staff very pleasant,reasonably priced.
the whole building could do with a revamp,was very surprised thier was no disabled toilets and no baby changing facillities this restaurant needs to come into the 21st century.has a great deal of potential could be a thriving establishment.

Great atmosphere, lovely to sit outside in the summer on the council maintained gardens which include a moat, but otherwise over-priced and in need of a make-over!

What a waste of a fantastic building. Dating from 1568, the pub from the outside is as enticing as the name suggests. The interior is however a major disappointment. Obviously undergone several refurbishments and these have done little to retain the buildings character. Much of the original brickwork has been crudely overpainted, none of the timber beams or flooring appears to be very original and modern radiators, prominent widescreen TV, fruit machines and other modern fittings rather destroy any notion that you are in a building with such history. The drink selection was, along with the locals vocabulary, rather limited. A rather uninspiring choice of 3 ales, all of which were unavailable on my visit, left us with lagers or the ubiquitous John Smiths. Beyond the bar, a large area has been set aside for darts and at the rear is a restaurant area behind a wooden screen. A noticeboard on the wall provides details of upcoming events, special offers, a brief history of the building and even a lost dog. A decent outside drinking area for the summer where the true attributes of the building can be admired.
