I came across this pub during a 'Charles Booth' walk through the streets of Deptford. You could see how many pubs there had been in Deptford High Street, now sadly gone, so to find the Dog and Bell was a very pleasant surprise. We only had time for a quick one, an excellent pint of Brockley Golden, but I vow to return to sample more of the superb range of beers they had on. I will not forget the face of a French guy on the walk who looked quizically at teh Dark Star 'Creme Brulee' pump clip - so funny. Anyway, if you're in Deptford, make for the Dog and Bell, you won't be disappointed.

Whisper it - but I was actually slightly disappointed. For sure, the ales are kept very well and there is a fine selection on rotation while the place is friendly, has backgammon and bar billiards.

But Deptford is on the up and whereas before, this will have seemed like a veritable oasis, it no longer stands out as the only decent place to go. A really good pub but not one of London's top 20 as many guides would seem to have it.

Have not been down this way for a while. Excellent local boozer - few like this still around. Beer in very good condition. Excellent pint of pale ale from the Brockley Brewery, and Growler from Essex.

On a spare Friday afternoon I sought this pub out as a 'tick' for the 2013 good beer guide.

A proper back street pub with a regular stream of customers no doubt a large amount of them coming here for the range of ales.

6 pumps that were dispensing 5 ales during my visit. 2 from Fullers of which 1 was the excellent ESB and 1 each from 3 guest breweries. I had a pint of Top Totty from Slaters, a decent IPA style beer.

A large amount of pump clips adorned the top of the bar, behind and down the wooden posts. These clips are from a vast array of breweries and show the huge selection that has been served here.

Wooden flooring through out with wooden church pue style seating near the bar. The side room is carparted with tables and chairs ready for diners enjoying the pub grub on offer.

The tele was on but it wasn't a concern and just provided back ground sound and vision. Local pictures and some framed art hang on the walls.

The pub has a lovely relaxed feel to it and is an ideal real ale pit stop being only a 10 minute walk from the Cutty Sark and Greenwich market.
