Closed for refurbishment until early 2016
Although this fusion of two Victorian pubs is certainly large, the Crown & Greyhound is also surprisingly cosy, split up as it is into various dark wood-panelled rooms with robust tables, carved wooden seating and nicotined ceilings.
Black and red tiles chequer the floor around the semi-circular bar, where a guest ale sits alongside London Pride, Sharp’s Doom Bar and Harveys Sussex Best to tempt the all-and-sundry collection of mums, nippers, builders, students and tourists who gather here.
At the rear, alongside a restaurant section with a nice conservatory, solid outdoor tables make light work of the substantial portions of food brought by the amiable staff (there’s also a Sunday carvery).
Two black-hooded barbecues await orders when summer brings hordes to a back garden in which an enormous, seen-it-all-before horse chestnut tree holds sway.

centre of the village, scandalous that Dulwich Estate Governors have kept it closed for 2 years, with no end in sight to work on it...actually, the estate governors have managed to close 4 of the 8 pubs on their land, someone really needs to check them out, long overdue an investigative report
This place has really gone downhill. The food is absolutely dreadful, the beer remains ok but the place is a fraction as good as it could be and the food is badly letting it down. Please improve guys!
