Located in leafy Dulwich, the Wood House is the perfect rural escape in busy, urban South East London. We are host to multiple unique spaces which have been created for people to enjoy, each celebrating the fact that the Wood House was once the home of Joseph Paxton, the esteemed architect of The Crystal Palace.

Delicious Sunday roast, cooked up a vegan lentil pie as a vegan options for my girlfriend, and they’ve got a fantastic beer garden…perfect for a sunny London Sunday afternoon…

I’m very fussy when it comes to food, however…! This place did an excellent job today – great food, delivered quickly, lovely pudding and nice ambience. Nice enough I felt the need to say thanks The Wood House 🙂

What an amazing pub! The staff are so friendly and can’t do enough for you, no matter how busy they are. We came here 2 years ago and the place was a disaster. We were lucky to meet Anna the GM and she is a god send for this place. There was live music playing in the garden which was a wonderful surprise, what a great atmosphere! The food was delicious and the chefs obviously enjoy what they do as I could see into the kitchen. Anna, what a wonderful pub and team you have. Me and my friends will defiantly be back. I couldn’t recommend this place more!
