Welcome to the Guard House

The Guard House is the central hub of Royal Arsenal, situated in the original Guard House building, commissioned by the Master-General of the Ordnance back in 1787. We’re the perfect venue to host a special occasion with our wide variety of private spaces and diverse event packs.

Our kitchen is open everyday of the week and is fronted by our fantastic Head Chef, Reece. We celebrate the best of British food by only ever using the best seasonal ingredients throughout the year. We’re open for breakfast every week day from 8 am so whether you’re wanting to grab something on the go or wanting to dine inside we’ve got you covered.

With the Rugby World Cup just around the corner, and as we are usually open for breakfast at 8am, it makes a lot of sense for us to show the Rugby World Cup. The Japan time difference won’t worry us here at The Guardhouse as we will be showing all the games and serving food and drink. We are only a two minute walk from Woolwich Arsenal DLR and a bus ride away from Greenwich. So make this Rugby World Cup one to remember and watch every game with us.

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

Fresh British Food

We only ever serve and cook with the best British produce each season has to offer. We open for breakfast every day with a take out option for those wanting to grab something on the go.

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.
