Welcome to The Wood House

Located in leafy Dulwich, the Wood House pub offers a perfect country vibe to the always busy urban South East London. Sat at the top of Sydenham Hill, boasting many open fireplaces, creating a comfortable, warm, intimate, and cosy environment, especially created for our guests to enjoy!

The Wood House offers a diverse menu selection that celebrates the absolute best of British, locally sourced, seasonal produce. It is designed to re-live the classic British nostalgic dishes that put a smile on your face – however, with a little modern twist from our Head Chef.

We are a historic building, once inhabited by renowned architect Sir Joseph Paxton. We are also the perfect retreat for those evenings when you want nothing more than a delicious glass of wine in our Paxton study- or, on Sundays, a fantastic roast!

We are now open for breakfast 7 days a week. So, book a table and kick start your day with a nutritious smoothie or a granola bowl, or nurse your hangover with a delicious big breakfast!
