London-South East London
May 11, 2018
The Rosendale is located somewhat off the beaten track in West Dulwich. This is an example of everything a good local bar should be. Housed in an imposing 19th century Victorian coach house, the split-level interior is no less striking, the modern elegantly mixing with the building’s original features. The space has been decked out with leather banquettes and crystal chandeliers, the wine list has been put together with care and there’s a spacious terrace for warm-weather lounging perhaps while drinking a potent but refreshing Rosendale Fruit Cup from a short but well-judged cocktail list. The food is a particular pull and the kitchen serves up hearty dishes made with well-sourced ingredients (something of which they’re rightly proud).
