Should you find yourself thirsty in Deptford, this place is indubitably your best bet. Unlike quite a few of the pubs in the area, the Dog & Bell is neither grubby nor intimidating. It's a well-kept establishment with quality real ales on tap and superb bottled beers in the fridge. Friendly service and a relaxed atmosphere amongst the locals are the order of the day. A bar billiards table adds to the charm and there's a rear terrace for those rare sunny days. A decent menu is offered and a changing range of art adorns the walls.

I used to love a visit to this pub when I lived in Hither Green. truly a one-off in this area. Always treated well and the beer (of course) was excellent.Enjoy...

There's not much I miss about Deptford. A 10 minute commute into the city, and this pub. Fantastic place.
