Dirty South is situated in the heart of Lewisham and has re-opened its doors after six years of closure. Previously an iconic music venue, Dirty South is a laid-back pub and restaurant dedicated to bringing the best of booze and grub to Lee High Road, seven days a week.

Whether it’s an indulgent dinner or a relaxing afternoon coffee, we offer the perfect space for people to come together, unwind and enjoy excellent food, drink and service. Dirty South is also ideal for post-work drinks with a selection of credible craft beers and an enticing cocktail menu.

The kitchen will be occupied by fried-food experts Other Side Fried, serving street-food favourites with a sprinkle of South London charm. Specialising in buttermilk-fried food, Other Side Fried will have you drooling over their one-of-a-kind chicken burgers, served with a punchy homemade ranch dressing. OSF also offer vegetarian options, so no one misses out on quality fried delights!

Great food and service, and nice to have it so locally. Burgers were really nice, and the veggie option was very impressive, too! Unfortunately the beer selection was not as advertised, with far less choice. It was pretty quiet, so the atmosphere was a little flat, but hopefully this will improve as people get to hear about it.

My fiancé and I pass this pub regularly and decided to go here for a quick bite to eat on Saturday evening and found the Dirty South to be a great pub, the food was delicious especially the fries, the atmosphere really good, children allowed in the bar until about 8pm.

Staff really friendly and a great service, definitely recommend.

Great food, excellent fried chicken with proper buffalo sauce, wonderful! The dirty fries are a real treat!

Really friendly staff and running well, you wouldn’t know it had only been open for a few weeks. Definitely worth a visit.

Genuinely the best fried chicken I’ve had outside of the US, the food was out of this world. The staff were brilliant, friendly and helpful and everything was incredibly good value. Can’t recommend highly enough.

Really enjoyed our visit to The Dirty South. Food was really nice but what made the visit was the excellent service we received. Staff were really friendly and chatty but also very helpful. Food and drink were both excellent and overall good value for money. Will definitely be visiting here again.

Lewisham/Lee is up and coming! We were kind of hoping that this would remain a hidden gem for the locals but can't see that happening. Don't know what it was like before but so far this newly reopened pub is great! Large space with lots of interesting drink options, delicious chicken burgers from Other Side Fried (so good we ordered twice!). Restaurant service from a very friendly and knowledgeable waitress left us feeling extremely satisfied and proud of our area. Long live Lewisham and Sarf London!
