The Plough


Dating back to the 1800s and occupying a prime spot on the main road between Denmark Hill, Dulwich and Forest Hill, The Plough is a landmark of the local area and one of its most established watering holes, enduringly popular with local residents and visitors alike.

With wood-panelling, exposed brick and plush furnishings, The Plough blends the traditional and the contemporary. Dog-friendly and boasting an open fire for those winter months, this welcoming pub is renowned for having one of the best beer gardens in the area – both out front and at the rear - perfect for lazy afternoons, al-fresco dining or just a glass of something special on a sunny afternoon. The well-kept beer garden offers ample comfy seating, covered tables and benches, barbecue facilities and outdoor heating for those days when the weather is a little more Britain than Bahamas.

Exuding a warm hospitality that reflects the vibrant, friendly spirit of its Dulwich neighbourhood, The Plough holds the authenticity of a true British local close to its heart.
