A Pub Garden fit for a King



A Pub Garden fit for a King

A great pub with an even better garden to enjoy and drink in

Location: 21 Sydenham Road, SE26 5HB

Description: Now 'The Dolphin' in Sydenham re-opened in December 2006 after refurbishment and is a stylish, warm and welcoming pub.

Not only that, but it has a superb garden - sculptured - in fact it is almost a work of art! So pristine are the shaped hedges and angled pathways that you'll hardly want to spoil it by drinking in it...but alas that would defeat the object of the pub - to the bar!

But don't take Shady's word for it, take the designer Stephenson O'Brien's word...'Our inspiration was a response to the Tudor nature of the pub's exterior, so we have created a contemporary take on the Tudor-style garden. There are two distinct areas, the perimeter walk is framed with a 'falling' steel pergola emerging from a yew hedge, which finally rests in the green roof of the outbuilding. The main body of the garden has a central circle where a water jet is flanked by four high-panel trees. Leading from this are a series of circular parterres with oak cubes nestled amongst the box hedging.'

Sound good to you....yeah - go visit - http://www.thedolphinsydenham.com/
