A pub without a bar, but lots of lovely suds to try in Brockley.

Much like its abbreviation-twin the little black dress, the London Beer Dispensary is practical, reliable and on-trend no matter the season. We're not totally convinced by the ‘no bar’ thing (the kegs are plumbed through a giant serving barrel which staff try to lean on casually while they talk you through the beers; casks are stacked against the walls) but everything else is bang-on, from the burger-led food menu to the cute little garden. Work your way through the handful of well-chosen guest beers or fall back on the solid collection of Southey Brewing Co options – the Penge-based brewery owns the pub.

A nice venue for beer lovers that could go a little way further to please the friends-of-beer-lovers-dragged-along. The prices of all non-beer drinks are a little wild and could do with a sightly bigger range.

However the food is good, the staff are friendly and its often a really nice crowd in there.

Such a good place, and the fact its in zone 2 south east means it isnt rammed all the time

Very good selection of craft beers. Chilled but buzzy atmosphere. Quality burgers. Very easy to settle in for the evening.

Great beers, always happy to let you try before you buy, decent burgers. You can usually find a seat.

Who doesn't lovely local craft beer and cider that changes so you can explore your taste palette in the same friendly, quirky, cosy venue? Plus also provides some pretty amazing grub. Absolute winner.

Great place (and I don't even drink beer!). Good burgers too.

Cosy; incredible food and snacks; and you can take beer home in a little milk carton!


Friendly service with no bar - the staff pour straight from the pumps or get you something from the fridge. They're also very knowledgable if you're looking for something different. Great food & regular events such as meet the Brewers make this another gem in Brockley's shining crown.

Such a great atmosphere, friendly staff and amazing food! The variety of beers is delectable and creative, my favourite and luckily my local!

Bar-less bar with delicious burgers, chicken wings and what seems like an endless selection of beers.


There is no bar. NO BAR. Where do I order my beer? Where do the empties go? I am so It's Monday and it is build-your-own-burger night. A revelation, the list of items to choose from is just enough to make you want to pick everything and not even feel guilty. The staff are lovely and helpful in my confuzzled state in my need of an alcohol beverage. There is great selection of craft beers and ales, I have a soft spot for Morning Glory bitter now (that's what I think it is). You can even pick some from the fridge and take it home in a cute takeaway box. The atmosphere is one that is inviting and comfortable but my only request is that there be more seating.

A brilliant bar with brilliant staff and life changing burgers. Love this place

Awesome beer, awesome food (best burger i've had in London), awesome music and an all around great vibe. Wholly worth the trip down to the Saaaath East!

Love the beers, and the atmosphere. Not had the burgers as there isn't a veggie option - but they look great!
