30 years in the Good Beer Guide for the Dog and Bell

The owner and retired landlord Charlie and new tenant Ellie were jointly presented with a certificate marking an incredible 30 continuous years in the Good Beer Guide at the recent annual Pickle Festival at the Dog & Bell, Deptford.

Congratulations to the Dog & Bell on this fantastic achievement – there is no other pub in our branch that comes close to matching this.

Thanks to John McLaughlin for the photo.



During the course of a month, we usually have a Branch meeting (where we discuss the branch business), 2/3 social meetings and some months a beer festival planning meeting. All members are welcome at any meeting.
