“Hops are a wicked and pernicious weed.”
Greenwich’s most famous son, King Henry VIII of England, made the statement above. But we like to think that, were he alive today, he would perhaps revise his opinion after seeing the fine, high-quality hops used by Zerodegrees in our microbrewery. At any rate, it’s almost certain that he would busy himself “researching” all the restaurants in Greenwich…
And as if it wasn’t quite enough to be the birthplace of Kings, Greenwich is the very place from which the modern concept of time itself sprang forth. Without GMT it would be nigh on impossible to know when it was time to go for a beer and pizza, but now we don’t have to worry about that at all. That goes double since Zerodegrees opened its doors in Greenwich. And if you do have the time, then it is almost certainly one of the best places to visit in all of London. Home to the Cutty Sark, Royal Observatory, National Maritime Museum and even a statue of Yuri Gagarin, the first man in space, there are any number of fine pubs and restaurants in Greenwich to enhance your trip.
Restaurants in Greenwich – Zerodegrees
Originally a village established in ancient times, Greenwich has always taken advantage of its position on the banks of the mighty Thames. With ships arriving from all four corners of the globe, there has always been a steady supply of all kinds of foods and delicacies. Greenwich Market is one of the oldest and most beloved markets in London, having been granted the Royal Charter at the beginning of the 16th Century. It has long supplied produce to not only local residents, but also many of the restaurants in Greenwich, and remains a must-see attraction. After a long stroll around the market, what could be better than putting your feet up for a pizza and a beer at Zerodegrees?
The Greenwich area was at one point home to The Royal Arsenal (and therefore also Arsenal Football Club, but we might not get into that in case there are some Spurs fans reading), so factories making all kinds of goods and munitions, from gunpowder to soap, sprang up all around its docks. But this is an area that has always known how to let its hair down and, in addition to the many pubs and restaurants in Greenwich, there have always been a significant number of breweries. Zerodegrees is happy to keep this tradition alive in a part of London that has maintained such a link with the past.
And we reckon that even Henry VIII would approve of that!
