Zero Degrees Review

Top 10 things you need to know about Zero Degrees:

1) The true measure of this value-for-money bar and restaurant varies according to the mood you wear. There is a time and a place for most things in London, and Zero Degrees courts most circumstances, succeeding in a few.

2) The Mooch: that weekend activity for couples with no discernible plans. You enjoy window shopping outside Whistles, Jigsaw and the estate agents. Zero Degrees has an easy-living, citrus, buttery, Gavi wine for you; how very moreish.

3) The Culture Munch: a day out in Greenwich with Mum and Dad. The Observatory; the National Maritime Museum; the market; Greenwich Park: done. Now, to Zero Degrees for an abundance of hearty salads to shut them the hell up for a few fleeting moments; such bliss.

4) The Pilgrimage: followers of the Beer religion, ask politely for a tour of the Zero Degrees brewery. Then it’s time for a gratifying (and inexpensive, for London) local pint, as fresh as morning dew. Flavours range from pilsner to mango beer, wheat ale to black lager. The king of session satisfaction, though: the pale ale, indubitably.

5) The Date Night: you need somewhere casual, quirky and lesser known. Avoid anything overtly snazzy; save that for the anniversary. Luckily, Zero Degrees specialises in fun, sharing dishes like the mariniere mussels (kilo of). Eschew the disappointing moule frites though; concentrate on each other instead.

6) The Hangover: barely functioning, you’ve lost the ability to make decisions. Thankfully, in this leafy suburb, nice people do courteous things to ease you back towards human existence. The near-laminated, all-encompassing menu of solace at Zero Degrees is filled with about 4000 varieties of wood-fired comfort pizza, including Scotch bonnet & pulled pork, or salmon & mascarpone (?!); and even a dessert pizza (which, unlike the beer, is surely not made on the premises).

7) The Shade Shirk: doused in factor 20, sun worshippers hunt for daytime warmth. Although the cavernous Zero Degrees industrial warehouse can feel a bit clubby (and as daunting as the restaurant menu at times), the rooftop and alfresco terraces offer plenty of direct sunlight.

8) The Let Down: there is but one dish for sausage lovers.

9) The Clever Clogs: yes, the restaurant is named after the meridian line on which it sits, next to the sprawling green of Blackheath.

10) Zero Degrees: well-schooled in the noble arts of pizza-making, mussel-poaching; triumphant at brewing beer. more

“I've been to the Zero bar for the beer but never to eat until yesterday. I was visiting from Brighton and decided it was probably a good idea to eat there because it could be washed down with their own delicious black lager. I ordered from the vast menu a (to die for) pizza with caramelized pear, gorgonzola and walnuts. It arrived promptly with a smile from the rather cute waiter. He made sure we had everything (slightly minus a knife or two). The only thing lacking was the house white, I couldn't drink it so settled for water instead. I loved this place, Zero Bar an experience, not just lunch. Can't wait to go back... please open one in Brighton!”

“The beer is great in Zero Degrees, and the food is just as good. Great selection of pizzas and pasta. The peking duck pizza is a must have. One down side is that Friday and Saturday evenings get really busy, with what seems like an invasion from Kent. Weekday evenings and Sunday afternoons you can enjoy and appreciate your food and drink a lot more.”

“I like this bar, it''s by far the nicest place to drink in Blackheath. The pizzas are great, although I wouldn''t agree that it''s a good place to go for a romantic meal - it''s got a cold, industrial feel to it.”

“Zero Degrees is a fantastic place, both for the drinks and the food. The atmosphere is buzzing whether its the weekend or not and the staff are always friendly and accomodating. Food portions are generous, especially the pizzas and the mussel pots. Definately sample the beer as it is made on site and the difference is notable. I always enjoy my evenings there, whether its a romantic dinner for two, or a get together with my mates!”

Wheat Ale Often pale, traditionally cloudy, always refreshing and easy-drinking. Brewed in various styles - including the quenching American Wheat Ale, the vanilla and banana flavoured German Hefe-Weizen, or the orange and spicy Belgian Witbier. (abv: 4.6%). £ 2.40
Black Lager A deep dark Czech style lager. Roasted and caramelised malts give chocolate and coffee flavours and a lasting cappuccino-style collar of foam. (abv: 4.8%) £ 2.40

"Dreadful pub, run by people who have zero idea about hospitality or running a pub. Upon arrival we sat in the back garden that only had one other table occupied , when we tried to order off the lunch menu..." Which venue is this?
