My favourite pub in East Dulwich does not come without a high price tag on Sunday lunch. I can’t deny I love this pub it’s beautiful inside and the outside space they have created for current restrictions is also great, the food is also very well presented and delicious. That said I do think it’s a few quid over what it should be for each of the plates and the same goes for the drinks, service is always very good and very polite but on this instance we did have to ask for desert menus and then wave someone down when we wanted to order them. If they aligned their prices correctly I’d be back here most weekends but until then it will remain a special occasion pub

We had a fantastic lunch - friendly service as always, great steaks and delicious wine and cocktails. The outdoor area has been really well done with coverage and big umbrellas. It’s also tucked around the back so you’re not sat by the road. Thanks for a really lovely afternoon (despite the weather!).

The food is amazing!! The service is good too. Between us with had the hake, the steak and the crab and the croquettes and prawns to start all absolutely fantastic. We also enjoyed the margaritas! It was freezing but we still had a lovely time, it's a bit on the pricey side but worth it, we will come back.

Really lovely atmosphere, very dog friendly. Lovely staff, we ordered starters “tapas style” instead of starter and main which was absolutely fine - croquettas deserve a special mention !

We loved our visit! We'd been for drinks before in the summer last year, but hadn't had food until last night. The bloody mary sauce that accompanies the scotch egg is one of the best things I've tasted! We also had two medium rare steaks that were cooked to perfection. Staff were really friendly too. We turned up around 20mins early for our table and we were very appreciative of them being able to accommodate us. Will definitely return soon!

Had a wonderful night at the lordship sat outside - it rained but the table was well covered so it made no difference. It was busy with a great atmosphere but social distancing was all in place and felt well spaced out.

Really chilly in the garden so heaters would be a big improvement! Quick and attentive/friendly service, food pretty decent (roast potatoes a little undercooked and cauliflower/beetroot pie a little underseasoned, puddings delicious) but on the whole nice and fairly priced

We were really excited to go out and dine for the first time in god knows how many months. Due to the weather it was extremely cold and there was not enough heating for every table in the outdoor area. I think management should prioritise people ordering food to those who are drinking only alcohol to place near the heaters. It shouldn’t really have to come to this but in reality we are there’s any more money than people who are drinking. The service was not great and we felt like we were ignored for a lot of the night. I had to going get the weight of myself inside which was kind of breaking the rules because we kept getting ignored even though we were calling at them. Food was very good however.

Amazing experience from start to finish, food and drinks were really good, and the staff was extremely friendly and attentive. Nice garden with a good sun exposure, and covered area. Would definitely recommend if you're around! A little gem in dulwich.

It is a lovely clean pub that I used to visit a lot. Drink choice is great. Previously I have been very pleased with the vegan option (yes there is always only one), I’ve had a delicious vegan pie and vegan burger before. However this time I was very disappointed. For £12 I got a couple of slices of mushroom in a bap with grated vegetables and a spoon of guacamole with some chips. It was quite bland and very expensive for what it was. Quite disappointed as I chose this pub for the previous great vegan choices.

Admittedly late (8pm) on a Sunday for a roast but at £19.50 it would have been nice if it was hot as opposed to tepid. Good flavours and produce though. Excellent staff and service. Portobello mushroom burger could use some development as at the moment it very much is just a mushroom between two bits of bread.

The Lordship never disappoints and does everything as well as possible. Sparkling wine delicious and cold, roast beef rare and delicious and puddings generous and scrumptious. The staff are delightful and I had a lovely birthday meal in the garden which is very pleasant indeed.

We had a lovely lunch and drinks at the Lordship.

The staff were friendly and attentive, even though it was fully booked outdoors and they were dealing with other customers and bookings.

Food was tasy, and filling. Chips were great. It was on the pricier side for a pub but you could tell it was proper fresh food - all being made fresh in the kitchen, with only a short menu to choose from. There were veggie and vegan options.
You get what you pay for and we got good, fresh, well-cooked food that came to us quite quickly!

Venue seemed very Covid safe - all staff wore masks at all times, we had hand sanitizer offered to us on arrival, and checked in at the door.

Looking forward to visiting again!

Lovely garden but a lack of heaters (there only 2 heat lamps on a side wall) means it’s freezing by 8pm. Will be fine once the weather is warmer but in the mean time wrap up if you want tub stay later.
