Traditionally different


It is claimed that The Dog & Bull dates from 1431, it could even be older as parts of the old Palace South of Surrey Street date from the 12th century.

Royal permission to grant a market was given 1276 and back then The Dog and Bull was called The Bell, even then the site has always been in the thick of things, standing in the busy market street. The land at the back of the pub was originally the village pound where stray animals were kept- possibly belonging to inmates of the jail that stood in Surrey Street.

Surrey Street was once called Butchers Row, the dominant traders would have kept cattle in the now back garden.

So why come down for a pint?

So why come down for a pint?
 

We offer everything from food and drink, to music, entertainment, sport, to a place to meet friends, broker deals, swap gossip, pray, love, contemplate, procrastinate, study, and chill out.
From our cosy function room/cinema, to our fantastic huge island bar and dining area, and outside to our spacious and relaxing beer garden, from head to toe and top to bottom we believe we are the very best public house and B.B.Q in all of Croydon.
And then some!!!
