The only thing stopping this from getting 5 stars is that its in the middle of nowhere. Why have a large store there? Anyway, food and service is typical McDonalds.
Well, it's a McDonalds. What is there to say? I went when the Big Tasty was back on the menu and if I'm honest, BECAUSE it was (despite it measuring a whopping 890 calories, did I really need to know that, Maccy?!) and it was good. Just the unhealthy uncultured stodge I was after at 11pm after walking through the rain.
Next time, I'll make more of an effort to try out an eatery nearby though. I left feeling guilty I'd succumbed, especially when the location is so awkward.
Located in Canning Town, on the barking road, it is a 5 minute walk to Canning town train station, that has links by the Jubilee and DLR lines, as well as a good supply of bus routes.
It is pretty much a standard McDonalds. An average size with plenty of seating space. It is always clean and the staff are as friendly and helpful as all the others.
The only thing that makes it different, is the area it is in. I would not advise you to go on your own in the night, as there is always a gang of people hanging around outside. There are sometimes fights outside aswell, so i think it can be quite intimidating to walk past the gang when going in or coming out of McDonalds. If you do want something to eat, and it is late, i would go to some of the chicken shops in the area, rather than go here.
Okay, I'll be the one to do it. I'll admit that instead of trying out different independent cafes and eateries in Greenwich, I've not only recently frequented Starbucks and Subway, but I've also gone to Maccy D's! I know, I know, gasp horror! My excuse? it was there, therefore I had cravings.
But you know what? Greenwich is a student town. Greenwich is also expensive due to it being so touristy. McDonald's offers fairly cheap, fast food which can be eaten quickly in those spare minutes before class and although I find it hard to not equate McDonald's with mainly Big Macs, they do offer more of a variety of food than they used to and if you're savvy enough to find out the calorific content of the various items on the menu, you can treat yourself now and then without feeling too guilty.
Hard to find but clean, nice staff and budget food -nice. Very big store.
