Welcome to the Herne Tavern

About us

The Herne Tavern is a traditional Victorian pub situated on Forest Hill Road in East Dulwich, right opposite the glorious green space that is Peckham Rye. Run by new licensees since June 2015, The Herne has an impressive 1930s interior and quite possibly the largest garden in South East London (really…it’s huge), making it a special place to visit all year round.

There are real fires and original panelling in the bar and dining area, plus a conservatory. Children are welcome in the garden and dining area until 8pm.

Four real ales are available on draught and the wine list has plenty of options by the glass. When it comes to eating, expect to find some good old classic dishes alongside more contemporary options. Nothing too fancy — we’re a pub! — but proper food made from great ingredients.
