This place is well described below. It is a classy venue in a classy location. On a pleasant evening the outside areas were well occupied and so the interior was rather enjoyable in being devoid of noise given the overall numbers here. It felt that the bar was a little understaffed, I was lucky to be served immediately on arrival but now glancing at the bar to remind myself of the full beer options it feels there are a lot of people waiting and getting frustrated they aren’t getting served quickly.

There is a reasonable but not spectacular cask offering, no big surprise given the chain. On offer were London Pride, Harvey’s (my choice and in good nick), TT Landlord and Doom Bar along with a Rosie’s Pig cider. Keg offerings were pretty standard and included Camden Pale Ale and their stout.

This place is undeniably sumptuous. Even with its unexciting beer choices you would be very happy to have such a lovely venue as your local. I can’t believe it could be rated less than a 7 unless you had a 50:50 chance of being shot on entry, but it should be even better. It effortlessly merges into its lovely surroundings and I could well believe it is even able to organise its own lovely weather every time you visit!! This is a small represented post code area for venues, but this is a must visit venue if anywhere near and worth doubling up with the Rosendale.

The land of the huge pubs.... once again, I say outside - the front this time - so saw little of the interior.

Dulwich is a nice place - and this was a lively area. London Pride in fine condition.

This is a grand old pub with a very attractive facade befitting its rather upmarket location near one of the entrances to Dulwich Park. The pub clearly used to have a complex, multi-room layout, as evidenced by three front doors which take you into two bar areas and a smaller central room, much opened out these days but still retaining a feel of partitioning. The entrances are surrounded by some terrific etched glasswork, whilst inside, the period detail is enhanced by dark wall panelling and some fine stained glass pieces which looked great when stood inside on a bright, summer’s day. The servery runs through all three segments of the pub and has a lovely, curved dark wood counter, ample serving space and a pleasant bar back that fits in nicely with the pub’s traditional decor. The large front seating area offers plenty of chunky benches whilst regular tables and chairs can be found through much of the rest of the pub, including in a side room behind a fine etched glass partitioning wall, where everything looks to have been set up more for diners than drinkers. A lovely frieze runs around most of the pub and the decor, whilst fairly sparsely utilised, reflects the overall look of the pub and there were no incongruous items to spoil the attractive interior. To the rear there is a large, partly covered garden and out front there are a good many picnic benches which made for a good spot to enjoy a pint or two in the summer sun.
There were five handpulls in operation on our visit, offering Sharps Juniper Rising, Purity Ubu, Taylor Landlord, Adnams Ghost Ship and Fullers London Pride, with a few interesting keg brews alongside should none of that take your fancy. I enjoyed a well kept pint of the ghost ship, but there were mixed reviews about the quality of the Sharps. We also stopped off here for some lunch and whilst the menu is a little pricy, we found the food in general to be pretty good.
This is a very pleasant pub that has retained a lot of attractive features despite efforts to modernise and turn into a gastro pub of sorts. I felt there were enough spaces here in which the drinker might feel comfortable and whilst the pub’s upmarket appearance might not suit everyone, it certainly seems to at least serve the local community well.
