A renovated Gastropub found on Royal Hill in Greenwich. Instantly sceptical of the term gastropub I approached this eatery with caution but was pleasantly surprised.
The decor inside is very formal, traditional restaurant, with an open plan bar and dining room.
My partner and I both ordered the slow cooked meat options - belly pork and lamb shank respectively. Both were very nicely cooked, the pork particulary well complimented by the figs and butternut squash accompaniment. The lamb was very tasty, but the pork was definitely the winner.
The cheapest bottle of red wine on the menu was around the 13 pound mark but was very tasty to my admittedly untrained pallete and went well with the meal.
A good place for a date before a nice walk up to the heath for a late drink on a cold Winter's evening.
Love this place. It's hidden away half way up Royal Hill away from the centre of Greenwich. We had lobster pasta, which was lovely. And a pizza, which is about the largest pizza I have ever had (could have done the both of us with a salad).
All was absolutely delicious! Very chilled atmosphere, so a good place to meet up with friends for a relaxing evening.
The Hill sits at the bottom of Royal Hill, and i have to be honest I was a little too prejudiced by its previous incarnation to go out of my way for a visit. On a journey home from Peckham, it was only after passing a road to Greenwich and watching it disappear into the distance like a lost eating out opportunity, that made me think of eating out and taking the Royal Hill and the restaurant it ended with.

This gastropub has a nice enough ambience and is more like a restaurant than a pub. Clean and modern throughout.
The food was very good and the menu was reasonable, there is also a good selection of wines to accompany your meal, but the service was fairly slow and not particularly friendly. It was a chilly March evening and I felt rather cold sitting in there, not sure what happened with the heating.
I thought a little on the expensive side for a pub, and a 12.5% service charge was added to the bill.
A reasonably nice place to have a meal away from the hustle and bustle of the main activity in Greenwich but this certainly wouldn't be my first choice for somewhere to eat in the area.
