A local favourite and rightly so - we're talking classic boozer territory here. A simple layout: island bar with seating round the sides, with the TV at the back of the pub so you can ignore it if you want. The Young's beers are very well kept and the lunchtime food is pub grub at favourable prices (out of hours there's usually some filled rolls on the counter). Best of all is the great mix of punters you get in: all nattering away and enjoying one of the most welcoming pubs we've found in a while. It's the sort of pub you'll feel at home in as soon as you cross the threshold. No surprises then that it's the pub Young's used for their publicity shot of Prince Charles pulling a pint. Not sure if HRH's banter is up there with that of the present day staff though. And best of all, Young's haven't seen fit to turn it into a gastro-city like a lot of their other pubs.

True, many of Croydon's boozers are aimed at coiffered, squealing, texting infants.

But here's a couple that aren't and are close to the Dog and Bull:



The Green Dragon, just up the road. Walk past the Goose on the Market (ugh!) and the Green Dragon is straight ahead. Loads of proper ales and cheap too.

Then there's the Royal Standard. A proper local's drinker (Fuller's) with good banter and no music.



Just don't tell everyone.

Croydon is not blessed with the best pubs in the Suburbs of London, catering mainly to an unpleasant crowd of under 21's, mainly...but this is an exception.

An oasis of tradition.

Quite rightly given 4 pints by Jack.
