Some of Deptford’s newer and glossier eating and drinking establishments run on an evening-only Wednesday to Saturday schedule. So it’s worth knowing about a pub for a pint or two if you’re waiting around. Or rather, it’s just worth knowing about a great pub full stop. The Dog & Bell is certainly that. Maroon, carpeted, and with a group of cheery maroon-cheeked locals who may or may not be strangers to a kip on the carpet - this is a 10/10 temple of drinking.
