Tulse Hill Hotel
150 Norwood Rd, London SE24 9AY
Not in the easiest of places to find but following its extensive refurbishment, this historic 19th century pub re-opened in 2014 as the Tulse Hill Hotel.
Housed in a beautiful early Victorian period building that dates back to around 1840 when it was originally the Tulse Hill Tavern, it was left to go to rack and ruin but now its back! It was worth the wait, it’s just a lovely place.
Located a few minutes from the Tulse Hill train station (between Brixton, Herne Hill and Dulwich) it’s not really that far out and it serves lovely food so you will be rewarded if you choose to make an effort.
The bar gives of a cool antique vibe and the restaurant is quite rustic and cosy and there’s a large outdoor garden for those balmy summer nights when you just can’t say no to those ice cold traditional and craft beers, they even serve organic and bio dynamic wines.
We originally went due to its 2015 Bolthole Award and since its 2016 Food & Travel Magazine’s Gourmet nomination, which no doubt it will win too. Worth the extra effort to get too, which isn’t really that much of an effort, really? (10 minutes up on the bus from Brixton).
