The latest addition to the Draft House chain opened in April 2012 in up and coming surroundings at the top of Lordship Lane where Peckham meets Dulwich, round the corner from the Blake mural and a shortish step from Peckham Rye Park. The narrow but deep space, which began as a shop, until recently housed a well loved local cocktail bar. It’s decked out much like the other branches in fresh looking wood with furniture and panelling painted a cheerful green shade. There’s a small but pleasant street terrace, a front drinking area and a food-oriented space with padded benches at the back. Food is the standard Draft House combination of cheerful British, light hearted American and solid German-inspired heart health-challenging fare, like gourmet burgers and hot dogs, brunches, “meat bombs” involving Bolognese encased in melted cheese, and rich veggie macaroni gratin.

All the Draft Houses pitch themselves at a broad audience with a decent but accessible craft beer list – casks from Sambrook’s and Redemption, a choice of good but easy drinking keg lagers and pale ales from the likes of Camden Town, Kaltenberg, Palm and Stiegl, and Brooklyn East India Pale Ale, Great Divide Yeti and Redchurch Hoxton Stout alongside the kitsch likes of Pabst Lone Star in the fridges. Menus come complete with beer matches and recommended bottles are divided into Everyday and Extreme – it’s refreshing to see Left Hand Milk Stout listed as an everyday beer. The place still needs to evolve its own character, but remains a local asset, and there’s a decent Antic pub, the East Dulwich Tavern, only a few doors away.
