The Great Exhibition

This used to be called the Crystal Palace Tavern, and it was two pubs in one: at the front, a trendy bit with stools and the like, and at the back carpets and a slightly dank feel. That's all been swept away to produce something much more suitable for the modern East Dulwich, complete with surprisingly brown interior, various bits of breweriana and a nice pic of Mick Jagger in his pomp. The cask pumps should be your focus here: a recent visit coincided with the appearance of Hardknott and Redwillow, two excellent Northern breweries. Dark Star are regulars, too.
