Still a reliably great pub. On my last visit, the Westerham Grasshopper was superb and they also had ELB's Jamboree on, another fine new ale. They've added an awning to the small courtyard at the back, so I was able to sit outside and enjoy the mild weather even though there was a little rain in the air.

Going in to see what today's beer selection is a real treat - there's always 3 or 4 new ales alongside the regulars from Fullers - London Pride and the classic ESB, as well as Gales Seafarers Ale. And they're always in good condition IME.

Sunday lunch is basic, no frills fare, just like your Mum used to make and great value. The Sunday quiz is set by a different person every week from a pool of enthusiasts and it always challenging but never the same.

If you live in the area, do support this pub, because it's one of a dying breed. It's like a micropub and a traditional community pub all rolled into one.

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.
