We waited several years for the Dog to reopen so it was disappointing to find that a kind of expensive Fawlty Towers had replaced it. All six beers were sold out or off and the remaining gassy option was pushing up towards £5.90 a pint....More

Affectionately known as the Dog, The Crown and Greyhound in Dulwich Village is a warm and welcoming oasis away from the fast lane of London life. The pub was once two: in the olden days the Crown served the gentry, while the Greyhound housed the labourers. Today there's no such nonsense; the whole community comes together under one roof to enjoy our rather tasty range of pub food, drink and entertainment. We have just been refurbing the pub and we are delighted to say we will be back open after nearly 3 years of closure with the addition of a hotel
