Description: 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

Lovely, well run pub with a great atmosphere and friendly staff. The food was amazing and I'd highly recommend the BBQ round the back. Best burgers in London!

Thank Vanboosh

What a great experience. The garden area is massive and has plenty of seats. The food was excellent, we had the burgers from the bbq which were delicious. The staff were all very polite and went out of their way to help us even though they were very busy.

We booked an outside table for Father's Day. Unfortunately the weather was cool and so we asked for a table inside in the restaurant, but they were all booked up meaning we had to sit in the bar area. The menu was varied and we ordered 3 roast dinners, a fish and chip, and a vegetarian option. We had a 6 year old with us who had the child's portion. I am a senior citizen and would have been happy with this sized portion, and perhaps I should have asked for it as my portion was huge; almost half a chicken which was hard to get through. The roasts were soft and not crispy so I left them; my husband's chips were fine. The vegetables were not very exciting, ( a lot of leeks plus peas). For London the prices were okay, but in Birmingham we can get much better value Sunday roasts!

Our visit to the Crown and Greyhound was on possibly one of the busiest Sundays of the year as it co-insided with fathers day and the annual visit of Carters Steam Fair to nearby Dulwich Park. Our decision to go to the Crown and Greyhound was a last minute one by my daughter which I gladly endorsed as we had enjoyed going there before about 2 years earlier. On arriving we told it could be an hours wait for a table but in fact we only waited about 15 minutes or so. As said before both the restaurant and pub was extremely busy ( and a slightly noisy but there is no music or slot machines to cause a din). Both the bar tender and the waiter who served up were extremely polite and helpful. The Bar and the restaurant are comfortably furnished and the restaurant has a welcoming atmosphere. The Sunday lunch menu is not overly complicated, but the meals are varied enough with a few welcome embelishments these make what may be an ordinary meal, somewhat more special. The service was quick and the meals were well presented and the food was piping hot. The price of both the drinks and meal were not overly expensive considering this is a slightly up-market area of Llondon. - would definitely recommend this place and will be come again - well done to the crew a The Crown and Grey hound.

Love this pub for a sunday afternoon drink - there are plenty of outside seats in the front of the pub but there is also a big garden out the back with a BBQ in the summer.

Nice relaxed atmosphere and tasty menu,

Thank Derek S
