What an awful pub, so dark that I couldn't see the menu even if I wanted food. Beer was ok until the football came on, good and loud which would have been ok if they had turned the music down or better turned it off, when I pointed out that one could not hear either properly as they were competing with each other I was told that some people want to hear the football and some the music, no shit Sherlock! but as it was nobody could hear anything just noise and at four pound there are lots of other pubs to chose from in East Dulwich.


I've had three enjoyable Sunday afternoons/evenings at The Actress. It's got a good mix of decent food, beer and a lively atmosphere but with a relaxed vibe. We've only been on Sundays, but it's perfect for what you want before going back to work. Staff are generally pretty friendly. The first time we went there they had run out of food, which was disappointing, but then maybe they had a bit of a disaster that day. Overall, we keep going back, and we don't even live in Dulwich so that must say something.

cold pizzas served on dodgy aluminium plates which scratch as you cut your pizza. definitely a waste of money and evening

I have been to this bar numerous times. Every time I have not had to wait any longer than usual for food and when I have eaten there has been very good pizza. Service has been very good especially with the table service. This bar serves London based brewery Meantime's ales and pilsner's which is a nice addition to the draught selection. I am very glad a bar like this exists in my local area. Well worth a visit and lovely atmosphere any night of the week.


Great bar, friendly atmosphere and great food. The veggie dogs were a personal favourite. Staff were very helpful, we arrived late on a busy Saturday night and one of the staff on the floor immediately helped with finding us a table and brought it to our attention as soon as one was available. All smiles from them and we left happy. Comedian Mickey Flanagan dropped in for a glass too! We only live a street away so this is definitely a contender for our main ‘local’.


Wait for food was over an hour. It was served in stages. While my friends ate their food I had to wait. By the time they finished my was served. All of the food was warn at best. No apologies made by the staff. Told the kitchen was busy hence the wait. I normally expect to wait on a busy Sunday but to receive my food 30 mins after other customers got theirs when they ordered after me is not acceptable. I will jot be eating here again.


I went here for lunch today, ordered 2 hotdogs and fries and some chicken wings. An hour after ordering our food still had not arrrived, when we asked at the bar they stated the kitchen was busy and that it was ready. 5 minutes later we got Luke warm chicken wings and one hotdog, we watched them bring out 2 other tables good before the other hotdog was brought out cold and when we had already eaten ours!
