Kevin and I have been to see a (rare) football match at Kennington Oval, and call in here for a quick one after the match. Most customers are here for the food.
Everards (see entries against Joule's & Robinsons whilst its new brewery was being built) - Truman's Belt & Braces4.20AcceptableTruman’s are rumoured to now have a site at Hackney Wick in which to develop a brewery, but continue to brew at Everards in the meantime. I continue to find their beers rather disappointing. This one is golden in colour and somewhat insubstantial.

About the Black Dog

The pub sign. Black Dog, Kennington, Greater London

Summary of Beer Scores



The pub is found in Kennington, Greater London, SE11 5ER.

Once a rather shabby Watney’s pub in an insalubrious area, The Black Dog has moved substantially upmarket and now trades as a Freehouse. There is a single bar area, with wooden floorboards and wooden furniture. The bar itself is a simple affair, but with lovely stained glass behind. Alongside is an open-plan kitchen, with food served from breakfast through to late evening. There is a small yard at the rear, or parkland across the road for outside drinking.

We have visited this pub 3 times, seen 9 different beers and tried 3 of them.
