Get half-price pub grub at The Crown & Greyhound in Dulwich

Tom Howells

A picture of leafy south London opulence Dulwich Village might be – but a hotbed of pubs it is not. Cue much consternation when its watering hole, The Crown & Greyhound, boarded up for refurbishment back in 2014, driving the booze-starved to East Dulwich and Herne Hill.

But thankfully, The Dog – as it was long known – is finally re-opening on Monday June 19. Not only that, but they’ll also be offering 50 percent off the new food menu for a week before the ‘official’ opening, from Tuesday June 13 to Sunday June 18. It’s a road test of sorts: the offer is only available if you reserve it first and diners are encouraged to give feedback. The menu itself will focus, they say, on seasonal and locally supplied produce – all washed down with London-based craft ales and small-batch spirits.

The revamped pub will also have a covered al fresco area, summer BBQ facilities, original design features and events such as a wine producer series and other boozy pop-ups. Those long, lazy village afternoons will be back in no time.

The Crown & Greyhound will open on Monday June 19 at 73 Dulwich Village, SE21 7BJ. To snaffle the pre-opening discounted menu, call 020 8299 4976 for reservations.
