The Rosendale is blessed with outside space.
The landscaped Summer Garden is now open until autumn and houses the all-important kids’ play area. The Side Garden is open all year round, with all-weather table tennis, table football and a boules pit providing plenty of adult entertainment, while the two vast, heated, jumbo umbrellas provide comfort for the smokers. The Terrace has undergone a beautiful revamp and offers plenty of space to sit back and enjoy a pint or bite to eat with friends.
“Three Cheers Pub Co has a reputation for providing great gardens in its south London venues, and the Rosendale lives up to the promise.”

THE SUMMER GARDEN
The Summer Garden is a secluded and beautiful space to the rear of the pub, perfect for long lunches on sunnier days, and particularly good for families.
The play area includes a full-size climbing frame and slide, in addition to the toddler area with ride-on cars and garden games. Entertained children and full table service make for perfectly relaxed afternoons.
Newly-refurbished and now looking particularly lovely, the Terrace is home to two feasting tables with larch log benches. Each table seats up to 24 and can be booked in advance.
Individual areas of elevated seating for drinkers and low banquettes for diners are also dotted throughout the expansive space, surrounded by bay and cypress trees, white lavender, mint and thyme. On warm, dry days, the new outdoor rotisserie and bar is open, serving delicious food and locally-brewed ales. Grab a pint, pull up a chair and tuck in.
“The Rosendale in Dulwich is a family-friendly venue, which mixes traditional with hip and serves wonderful cocktails…The food which uses many locally-sourced ingredients, also hits the mark. It also has a garden and function rooms. It is the perfect neighbourhood pub and one that we will be spending a lot of time in this summer.” –emeraldstreet.com
Our Side Garden is a pretty ideal beer garden. Huge umbrellas maintain its appeal whatever the weather and its generous size means there’s often a lively local feel as we make the most of whatever sunshine we’re granted.
All-weather table tennis, table football and the boules pit create a fun, relaxed atmosphere for grown-ups – well away from the kids play area. Blankets and heaters add a layer of comfort for smokers and hardier outdoor enthusiasts in the winter.
If you’d like to host an al fresco party, the Side Garden is available for private hire for up to 120 people. Please just e-mail or phone James the manager on 020 8761 9008 to discuss your individual requirements.
