Dog & Bell
Time Out says
Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
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.
