The Rosendale Review

The Rosendale is featured in these Guides:

Top 10 things you need to know about The Rosendale:

1) For those who reside in leafy West Dulwich, The Rosendale is probably your favourite family gastropub already. For those who don’t, it’s time to discover your new favourite pub. There’s a real sense of community around here. You’ll get to know Paolo and his colleagues at The Rosendale in no time.

2) Inside you’ll find roomy interiors with cushioned banquettes, dark wooden tables, ornate Victorian drawings of exotic animals, and posters which adorn this once former Victorian coach inn. The elegant dining area and handsome bar area are welcoming.

3) The private rooms upstairs are perfect for private events including wedding parties. Yes, The Rosendale has its own wedding licence!

4) If the sun’s out, it’s time to pick your spot outside either on the spacious front terrace, in the impressive side garden, or in the enormous back beer garden. With a children’s play area too, you can see why this is one of London’s great kid-friendly venues.

5) Kick off proceedings with a Pimm’s, but not just any Pimm’s; a Pimm’s Royale, a level up thanks to champagne. But if you insist on tradition, an excellent selection of local craft beer and award-winning wines have you covered.

6) But what’s the grub like on the unpretentious menu? Don’t be afraid to ask for recommendations and don’t ignore the ever-changing specials menu where there’s something new every day. Top tip: the locals and the staff swear they serve the best pies in South London.

7) To start, order the warm flatbread with tomato and garlic topping for that wood oven taste. It’s generous in portion and a combo you never knew you loved. Or, if you fancy something lighter, the delicate, smoked trout with horseradish is the perfect entree.

8) Resist the tempting sirloin, and order the sea bream for your main. Accompany with a generous helping of healthy vegetables, smothered in a creamy mussel sauce that’s so good you’ll want to mop up every last drop with your side of soft, sweet potatoes and feta crumble.

9) Rouse yourself from a food coma with a sophisticated espresso martini, impressively smooth with the satisfyingly bitter taste of caffeine we all love.

10) Your dream pub does exist and it has a name. Enormous beers gardens, scrumptious grub, innovative cocktails, roomy interiors oozing with history - it’s easy to see why it’s the best gastropub for the lucky locals and families of West Dulwich.

“Thank goodness that The Rosendale has just undergone a complete renovation by the same guys as The Avalon and The Bolingbroke, it certainly needed it. I went along with friends on a Wednesday night after work and the place had such a lovely atmostphere, it was busy and it seemed as though everyone was having a good time. The food was outstanding especially the pork belly and sticky toffee pudding! The serve was excellent and very attentive and the brand new decoration looks stunning, I especially love the butterfly wall in the dining room. I'll definitely be back”
