East Dulwich Tavern

Time Out says

4 out of 5 stars

Like all good local pubs, the East Dulwich Tavern varies greatly depending on when you visit. On a week night you might wander into a film club or a quiz; at prime-time it’s standing room only as packs of pals knock back bottles of local craft beer; weekends are all about board games and grub in the airy, sky-lit main room. Crucially, it caters to all these needs without alienating anyone, and its upcycled aesthetic and well-priced, accessible menu add to the impression that everyone’s welcome to use the pub’s considerable space as they see fit – even if that’s just getting quietly sloshed in the corner.

This is a nice, friendly neighborhood pub with monarchy memorabilia lining the walls, and a good selection of beers on tap and bottled ciders. They even do shows for children in the upstairs bar/restaurant area in the school holidays. I'd love to try the food as it looks delicious. 


When I lived in Dulwich, I loved this place. It’s got a really good vibe and lovely atmosphere. It’s rare to find a decent beer garden too. Popped back recently and it’s still a great pub.

My local! Always able to find a seat, great selection of beers on tap, food is also always great quality.


Great spot on the corner of Lordship Lane. Good craft beers on tab, extensive space for dining or hanging with friends. Went during the day and returned in the evening to a packed venue. Definitely caters for muso's over sports fans. 

A super cosy pub that serves delicious food – especially the halloumi burger! There is always something going on whether it be quizzes or live music, there is something for everyone.  The staff is friendly and they have a big selection of craft beers. Also, if it’s chilly out, you might be lucky enough to grab a seat by the fire…

I used to love coming here until they tried to fob a group of us off with spam inside out orders when we ordered beef brisket sandwiches! They gave us alternatives and a free beer when I complained, but why try it on in the first place? Better places to go in East Dulwich
