I don't think there is such thing as service at this place at all. I would love to tell you how the food was but waited 2 hours and decided to leave and just pay for the drinks ( hungry children !!) No atmosphere really...More

Lazy service, lazy food. No kids menu, staff disinterested. Restaraunt stunk of the toilets. should have realised when everywhere else was rammed except this place. Don't expect to see it still open next time in Greenwich unless there is a change of management, waiting staff...More

We had already been refused by a nearby restaurant. Our daughter needs food to be blended as she suffers from cerebral palsy. When we asked if this was possible the proprietor was so kind and generous and could not have been more helpful. He blended...More

Unbelievably awful. Spaghetti carbonara was the worst ever and my fish was burnt. Service was casual at best.

Long wait for food. Came with a young toddler and only got his food towards the end. Tastes bland, and £14.95 for a glass of house red is really pushing it. On top of poor service, you had to pay the staff 12.5%.

First impressions seemed good, a large busy establishment with very few tables free. The staff were welcoming and sat us down quickly. Unfortunately the table was quite dirty and we had to ask for it to be cleaned and other tables where people had finished...More

Needed somewhere quick to eat in Greenwich before the comedy festival last week and so came here by chance. Food was not bad but felt it was a bit expensive for what it was and also thought the 12.5% service charge was a bit cheeky....More

Papa Charlie was lovely, right in middle of Greenwich. The hosts were so friendly and always laughing. We had a table in window and visited with friends from Australia. Whilst we did not have a full meal, what we had was absolutely delicious and well...More

Absoluty appalling place. Very slow service, wrong drinks brought (but they turned up on the extortinate bill later, even though we hadn't ordered them). Food that has clearly been cooked goodness knows how long ago in a giant batch, frozen and re heated. The pasta...More

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
