Welcome to the Guard House

Our kitchen is open everyday of the week and is fronted by our fantastic Head Chef Simon. We celebrate the best of British food by only ever using the best seasonal ingredients which are delivered daily throughout the year and with our three varied rooms, from our Glasshouse restaurant, the Aviary which is perfect for intimate dining or our Mess bar with a roaring flame and seats you can sink into, each room can cater for your needs.

We’re open for breakfast every weekday from 8am and weekend from 10am, we’re only a stone throw away from the soon to be completed crossrail as well as a two minute walk to Woolwich Arsenal DLR or why not walk down from the clipper? So whether you’re wanting to grab something on the go or start your day right with our amazing John Street coffee and an English Breakfast or Vegan breakfast, we have you covered.

There is so much to look forward to in 2020, Six Nations, Euro 2020, even closer to home you will have weddings, birthdays, christenings or gender reveal parties. No matter the occasion, here at The Guard House we have private rooms that cater to any celebration you are hosting. Keep an eye on our Whats on page to keep yourself in the loop.

Dan and the team, look forward to welcoming you soon.

The Guard House customer Rating 5

I hosted my book launch at the Guard House on the 1st of December 2018. The service we received was impeccable and the food was so delicious. Thank you Dan and Rikki for going out of your way to support my big day and thank you to Imogen for being amazing behind the bar! I will definitely be hosting more event in this venue.


Just what I needed and more

When my usual commute was unfortunately disrupted I popped in here for a quick beer. I ended up having a long chat with Dan and stayed for a great dinner (sausage & mash, got to go for a classic!) and he recommended me through their selection of ales.

Now whenever I want to treat myself I “disrupt” my commute via the guard house!


Outstanding Service

Popped in only for a quick lunch with my family, but our experience was so good we ended up staying much longer! Great food and drinks, with the best service I have ever received. Thanks again to all the staff who looked after us – we had a lovely time! We will definitely be returning.
