Welcome to The Wood House

Located in leafy Dulwich, the Wood House pub offers a perfect country vibe escape to the always busy urban South East London. Sat at the top of Sydenham Hill, we are host to multiple unique private hire spaces, specially created for our guests to enjoy!

Whether you’re looking to host a meeting, birthday party, wedding, anniversary, wake or just a general get-together with family and friends, we are the perfect location. We also boast a fantastic beer garden, partly covered by a marquee in the winter months- so you can enjoy the outdoors even in the colder days!

The Wood House offers a diverse menu selection that celebrates the absolute best of British 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 Neo.

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!

Keep an eye on our What’s On page for exciting events happening this spring/summer in our majestic garden!

The Wood House team look forward to seeing you soon!
