Next to Greenwich Railway Station on Greenwich High Road, this is a traditional wine bar with sloping floors and lots of character, enhanced by candlelit tables and classic Windsor chairs. Recently having undergone extensive refurbishment, step into the cosy bar which leads to the large dining area, serving delectable English fare from a hearty menu, complemented by a splendid selection of fine wines from the cellar, port and Davy's Own Label House Wines. Perfect for holding any kind of celebration in Greenwich, Davy's Wine Vaults specialises in catering for private parties during the week or weekends with function rooms for 50 to 150 people. Smokers are welcome to make use of the covered, seated area outside and don't forget to visit Davy's Wine Shop next door for a case or two of wine!

Great experience

Great wine bar. Knowledgeable staff. Reasonably priced for a nice wine. Wines were recommended for us by staff. Would come back.

We were looking for somewhere to host a reunion dinner in Greenwich. This fitted the bill perfectly, they were able to provide a table for 16 and were flexible up to the last minute on numbers. The food, beer (Meantime) and wines were very reasonably priced. Total cost was £50 per head (lots of wine). We had a great night... More

I wanted to take my boyfriend somewhere nice to eat as he'd just arrived from America and had bad Jet Lag already!

This place is practically next door to the Novotel in Greenwich so it was an ideal location for us to drop off our bags and grab some lunch. Although it was a Saturday the place was very quiet.

Ate at their cocktail bar downstairs, same menu. Ordered rump steak, medium rare. Took ages. Went to bar to find out where it was only to see the food sitting on a sideboard.

The restaurant was one of the few to be open on a Sunday evening, so choice was limited but even so, we felt we had done well. The meal was excellent, the service too. Would recommend.

Ate here despite knowing of several good restaurants in the area. Prices are higher than average but the expectation was that the food and service would reflect this. How wrong we were. Sea bass dish (£16) was almost inedible due to the huge quantities of raw ginger in big slices mixed in with the noodles. The portion size was tiny... More

Staying in Greenwich

Neighborhood Profile
Greenwich
Greenwich Mean Time starts here, so to speak, as the very concept of global time was established at Royal Observatory, just one of several buildings of architectural interest in Greenwich. Indeed, the whole of Greenwich's historic town center, its Royal Park and a number of related buildings (and one world famous ship, the Cutty Sark) make up the UNESCO World Heritage site known as Maritime Greenwich. Today a laser beam is shot out across the night sky from the Observatory to mark the location of the Prime Meridian. Other bold (some say brash) 21st century additions to the area include landmarks such as The O2 entertainment complex (previously known as the Millennium Dome) and the Air Line cable cars, which offer scenic transport across the Thames between North Greenwich and the Royal Docks.
