Trafalgar Tavern


The "Jewel of the Thames", the Trafalgar Tavern is a gastro pub, opened in June, 1837 since which time it has prided itself on accommodating large and small parties in a comfortable and superior manner. It was built on the sight of the eighteenth century Old George Tavern, designed by the architect Joseph Kay (1775 - 1847) whose 1830’s remodelling of central Greenwich and it’s market is a masterpiece of regency town planning.

Once a traditional gentlemen's dining club, The Trafalgar Tavern is now the last survivor of the grand riverbank establishments in Greenwich and Blackwall, which during the nineteenth century were the favoured places of resort for ''dining down the river’’, and justly famed for their celebrity whitebait dinners. The elegant balconies and large windows presented pleasure-seeking Londoners with an ever-changing panorama of the rich variety of shipping and craft on the River Thames.

The walls of the Trafalgar Tavern are densely hung with an unrivalled private art collection in which the rich history and topography of Greenwich and the glorious naval victories of the immortal Lord Nelson are vividly depicted, alongside the names of his fellow admirals who are commemorated in the Trafalgar’s splendid rooms.

The Nile Restaurant at the Trafalgar Tavern in an extraordinarily immersive experience with a dining room like no other in London. Allow your gaze to shift between the Thames River ebbing and flowing, towards the paintings and ojets d'art . With a focus on contemporary European cuisine, our menus offer British sourced, seasonal dishes for lunch and dinner as well as a traditional Sunday roast (every Sunday from 12pm).
