Greenwich - famous bar for chess

Recently refurbished, this is a classic (and famous) bar that’s principally renowned for the dozens of punters in there quietly playing chess.

As you’d expect, there’s no music but it still attracts the younger market as well as the Checkmate Crew. Down the street the the right as you emerge is the Zinneke-Pis: a statue of a mongrel dog doing what comes naturally against a street bollard. Welcome to Brussels. (No website, address is 7 Rue des Chartreux, B-1000)
