About The Herne

    The Herne Tavern is a classic Victorian pub tucked away on Forest Hill Road in East Dulwich, opposite the glorious green space that is Peckham Rye.
    An impressive 1930s interior and a magnificently large garden make it a special place to visit all year round.
    Real fires in the winter, table tennis in the summer; cracking beers, great wines, superb spirits, properly fresh food.

    Opening Hours: 12pm-11pm Sun-Thu / 12pm-12am Fri-Sat
    Kitchen Hours:  Mondays Closed 12pm-9pm Mon-Sun
    We are dog friendly.  Supervised children are welcome until 8pm. 



    When it comes to eating, expect to find classic dishes alongside contemporary options. Nothing too fancy - we’re a pub! - but proper food made from great ingredients.
