I phoned the Black Dog only a few days before I wanted to celebrate my retirement, having been let down by another local venue. I asked them if they could manage 40-50 people. I received an absolutely no fuss positive response which was confirmed by email. On the day the staff could not have been more helpful - they assisted my wife with a surprise cake and balloons. We organised a tab at the bar which all went very smoothly and even the final bill seemed pretty reasonable. Throughout the afternoon and evening the staff remained calm and courteous and coped well with the numbers. It turned out to be a terrific event, all helped by the Black Dogs superbly friendly staff. My wife and I will definitely be giving it a try one night for food, which we could see coming out of the kitchen and looked fantastic.
Fabulous pub in every way - great atmosphere, friendly staff, lovely food and great beer! I would highly recommend!
The Black Dog represents everything we love about our traditional British pubs and has evolved over the years, staying relevant without detriment to it's values/traditions. The food and ambience is simply wonderful as is there abundance of Lagers and Ales!
Great atmosphere, superb pub food, lots of different guest beers with tasters before you buy. Warm friendly and great value.
Great pub with a good range of beers. Small but nice covered outdoor area. The food is seasonal, simple but good quality and reasonable priced
Nice little boozer with good food and a good range of beers. Sunday lunches are awesome but reserve a table as they're always packed. Their Sunday pub quiz is always worth sticking around for too.
You know that feeling when work is done and the sun is still shining and you want to go to a little quiet pub that has a garden (or the London version of that: "outside space"),to have a pint and a snack far away from the madding crowd, on your way home, without fuss or effort or tonnes of other people in your face with the same idea...well this is the place, but please don't go there every week or it will become too busy. Just off the Albert Embankment, a road away from the main nasty road and with a peaceful little park right outside in which you can throw down your bike with gleeful abandon while one of you get the pints in, is The Black Dog. The IPAs are fully in stock, and they make their own scotch eggs and pork pies, the former of which are the best I've ever tried. It's a quiet but happily popular spot that makes you feel you're out of London but in the know. A local kept busy by locals, but not by the crowds. You can catch a few of the evening rays with a gentle pint, without anyone bothering you: the perfect place for 'just the one' on the way home, although it will never be just the one, will it? It's always at least three, in which case, it's just a short walk to Vauxhall tube and overground so you can get home in one, sunkissed and slightly tipsy, piece.
