4 out of 5 stars

It’s perhaps not all the better for the refurb a little while back – whatever happened to that Empire-era map of India? – but the good old Dog & Bell still charms the local creatives and ale aficionados. Mounted art, even Fred Aylwood’s wacky collage, is now neatly framed; a gas fire in the corridor linking the two rooms is surrounded by tables, thus creating a third space.

Beers include treats from Dark Star (Hophead included) and Fuller’s; draught Budvar comes in regular light and dark varieties; and a string of Belgian beers (Gentse Tripel, Liefmans) is individually labelled with little Post-it strips in the fridge.

Food-wise, the place has moved a little upmarket (stuffed peppers?), but you can still get a dish of pork sausages, mash and onion gravy for £5.95. Also present: bar billiards, the lyrics to ‘Homeward Bound’ (not the Paul Simon tune but a music hall ditty mentioning this very pub) and, yes, the regulars. Plus Deptford, tu meurs.

Dog & Bell says
A wonderful example of traditional ale house with an impressive range of ever-changing guest real ales, ciders and craft beers, alongside a large selection of bottled Belgian beers!
