A BAR is to be built in the grounds of a former hospital in a protected maritime site.

Building work at the Old Royal Naval College, Greenwich, to make way for a brewery and a bar will start in November.

Site manager The Greenwich Foundation said the bar will hark back to a brewery there between 1717 and 1860 that supplied a daily ration of beer to injured and retired sailors. The old vaults still exist and will be used by Meantime brewery, owner of the Greenwich Union, in Royal Hill, for storage.
