Experience the Autumn in Deptford 

With the days getting shorter and the air getting crisper, it’s time to make the most of the day with your loved ones in Deptford this Autumn. We’ve put together a selection of the best places to go to experience the cosiness of comfort food followed by a peaceful walk in the area.

Deptford Park

Easily accessed from Evelyn Street, Deptford Park is ideal for an Autumn stroll and offers a little bit of escapism from the busy city streets. There’s plenty of trees offering you a brilliant display of red, orange and yellow leaves and you might even catch a football match on your travels. If you want something for the little ones to do, they can enjoy some time in the park’s playground, or they could go on a good old-fashioned conker hunt to really get into the Autumn spirit.

The Dog and Bell Pub 

You can find this wonderful little pub on Prince Street and it offers delicious food and real ale with indoor and outdoor seating. Its’ traditional look gives it its’ charm and the staff make you feel welcome as soon as you walk in the door. Most importantly, they couldn’t forget about our beloved dogs, which is why they welcome our four-legged friends in for a cosy evening too!
