The Guard House


A charming and friendly pub.

Found in the heart of old is a disused army barracks Young's have transformed this rustic space into a modern, chic gastropub, with the new addition of the elegant glass house. However, all the while retaining the authenticity of a military officers mess with cosy leather armchairs and sofas at the heart of the original structure. 

Set between a selection of dining rooms, laid-back drinking areas and bars, The Guard House has gone out of its way to become one of the most attractive pubs in Woolwich.

Not only can you expect a roster of traditional London pints and craft bottles. At The Guard House we pride ourselves on only using the best of British seasonal produce we can get our hands on, to design our quintessentially British menu. They've recently introduced their 'Hatch' breakfast menu so will be serving food from 8am weekdays 9am at the weekend, the perfect way to start your day.
