Bottle Cave (Beer Store)
“Now called the Bottle House. Visited on 27th October 2021. Bought some cans, good, interesting selection. Loads of Cloudwater and Sussex Small Batch; others include Boxcar, Villages and Friendship Adventure. Pleasant chap fronting the place, nice relaxed look around. Decent prices (for East Dulwich).“

“Wine and beer shop on Lordship Lane, the main high street through East Dulwich. Range is pretty big and whilst there's some decent Belgian, German and American beers including a few interesting Belgians not always seen, focus is mainly on UK craft beer scene with a decent range of Beavertown, Cloudwater, Siren Moor, Brew by Numbers etc. Not as beer focused as Hop Burns & Black around the corner, but foreign section is larger and they have a different range of many beers.“

Bottle Cave (Beer Store)
“Formerly known as Bossman Wines - Wine and beer focused bottle shop on the main high street in East Dulwich. Beer selection went much more ’craft’ about a year or so ago. Good spot to pick up fresh product from the Bermondsey breweries. Also stocks the likes of Cloudwater, Beavertown, Moor, Siren, Blackjack, Tiny Rebel etc. Prices are decent and staff friendly. Good place to grab a few beers for the evening if you’re a local but not a ticker spot. No drink-in.“

“A longstanding institution in the area and for years one of the few places in the area where you could get an interesting beer. Always plenty of decent stuff on cask including the occasional obscurity. Over the years I’ve had beers from the likes of Mighty Oak, Arbor, Penpont, Fruefitt, Moor, Clarkshaws, Hop Stuff, Goachers, Great Heck, Dark Star, Siren, Left Handed, Revolutions. One slight moan is that they have only one craft keg line which always seems to be kicked. I think they have 7 or 8 cask lines. Usually something decent in the fridges if the taps don’t take your fancy. Staff are ok but don’t expect much in the way of chat. Food is massively variable. Good place to watch sport if that’s your thing. Overall a very solid boozer.“

“Visited on 30th June 2016. It’s over the road from East Dulwich station. It’s a huge place with 3 large rooms, all were busy with people watching the football. Place was well looked after. Beer wise, it was pretty good with a good mix of cask and keg with 4 beers from Siren. I had a cask Vermont Tea Party which was excellent. Service was good and prices decent enough. A decent pub and one I’d go back to.“

“Visited on 30th June 2016. As it’s a few doors down from Hop Burns and Black I popped in here whilst awaiting the NZ event to get started. It’s a long, narrow pub, the rear is set up for dining and also had a large screen showing tennis. The bar area is a smaller, darker and has a mix of seating. Beer range was OK, did pick up a Long Arm IPA on keg which was decent. Prices and service OK. Not one I’d rush back to but as it’s close to HP&B there’s a chance I’ll pop in.“

“Visited on 30th June 2016. Known as the EDT to locals this pub around 5 mins from East Dulwich station (about halfway to Hop Burns and Black). It’s got tables outside a large bar area with a mix of seating and a restaurant. A good range of beers on from local breweries. I opted for the Gipsy Hill beer which was in decent condition, decent prices and good service. There’s also a good range of beer on handpull. Decent venue and worth a look if you’re in the area. “

“Stopped in here as very close to Hop Burns & Black. Seems a pretty new establishment and lots of dining tables "reserved" for that evening so looks very food focused. Tap selection was ok but nothing really to blow you away, some interesting US bottles I had not seen before so had one of those, all in all seems ok, but not really that inspired to rush back.“

“Went here for their Tuesday night chicken wing special (wings 35p each). The wings were excellent and superb value. Beer selection was reasonable - an acceptable number of keg and craft lines and a few decent bottles. Not mind-blowing but a reasonable selection particularly for the area.“

“Visited here for a beer a while back. A decent range of beers on offer, but perhaps too much emphasis on US stuff - when you’re located in a country (and, indeed, a city) that is booming with quality breweries, I just don’t understand the inclination to serve imports. The beer range includes keg, cask and bottle. Fairly average value and staff. I gather the food here is solid but, alas, during my visit I did not eat anything.“

“When this place first opened it looked like a serious challenger to Stormbird in terms of quality selection. However after a couple of changes in manager it’s definitely lost it’s way. The days of Birra del Borgo takeovers are long gone. Loads of taps but never anything particularly inspiring on. I seem to always end up drinking Lagunitas IPA whenever I do venture in, not a beer I’m even that big a fan of. Staff are a mixture of aloof and clueless. One thing that has improved since it opened is the food. Just a couple of doors down from the excellent Hop, Burns & Black; which is much more inviting. Atmosphere wise you could be in an All Bar One.“

“On the outside looks like a great place, when you get in you realise it’s just another normal pub masquerading as a "craft beer bar" uninterested and snooty bar staff, and a whole bunch of lagers on tap but nothing to really write home about.“

“Pleasant bar - 12 kegs with a mix of English and US craft beer and six real ale handpumps. Big bottle selection, mainly US. Good food, American BBQ style menu with burgers, pulled pork, ribs, etc. Bit pricy (£11+ for burgers) but a really nice place.“
