The Old Brewery

Located within the grounds of The Old Royal Naval College, The Old Brewery is a stone's throw from the world's last tea clipper, the legendary Cutty Sark. A unique place to dine, The Old Brewery is also an experimental workshop. Our on site brewers trial, tinker and ultimately create extraordinary quality, limited edition beers, many in a style unavailable anywhere else in the world.

Throughout the day our main hall functions as a buzzy and convivial cafe. By night, the room with its dramatic waves of suspended bottles is transformed into a vibrant restaurant. Our cosy and relaxed annex bar and tranquil landscaped courtyard offer an all day menu. In addition to our own crafted Meantime beers, we have an extensive menu of more than 50 classic beers from around the world.

Our aim at the Meantime Brewing Company is to bring the wonderful world of beer to your palate. We brew a wider range of beers than any other brewery in the UK, but even we can't create all the beer styles the world has to offer. And we certainly couldn't stock them all !

There are also many classic examples of the world's great styles that we could not hope to better. We have therefore put together this list of 50 beers from some of the world's top breweries to demonstrate as wide a choice of taste and flavour as possible. The styles are listed in order of ascending strength and complexity. We're pretty sure you will have a lot of fun exploring this list and we hope you enjoy discovering these great flavours as much as we enjoyed selecting.


Meantime beers


At the Old Brewery, a firm devotion to high-quality produce and a dedication to creating simple food with deep flavour and an honest but refined touch provides the foundation for a range of dishes, from the modern British in the main restaurant, to more rustic, traditional dishes in the pub. In the café, a selection of homemade sandwiches, home-baked cakes and pastries, and hot bistro-style food is available.

Embracing the historic setting of The Old Brewery, Meantime beer is used throughout the menus, in dishes such as stout-marinated oysters, beer cured salmon, and chocolate beer sorbet. Such dishes showcase what can be achieved through cooking with beer, drawing together our passion for innovative cooking and the Meantime Brewing Company's passion for exemplary beer.

NB: Please note that some prices on our menus are subject to slight fluctuation due to market prices.
We take bookings in the restuarant for dinner but not in the bar or cafe during the daytime
