The Black Dog (formerly The Lavender)

Thanks to an anonymous commentator on the new businesses in Kennington Cross post, I've been provided with news about a couple more local ventures on the Vauxhall side of SE11.

The pub on Vauxhall Walk, previously known as The Lavender, is bucking the "new name" trend of the Tommyfield, by reverting to its old name, The Black Dog (although the original Black Dog was further along Glass House Walk). I'm wondering whether the Black Dog name is linked to the "Black Prince" heritage in Kennington.

Anyhow, the new Black Dog will re-open "shortly" from Monday to Saturday, and Sunday by arrangement. Amongst other things, they'll be offering "monthly changing cocktails", and there's a holding page with more info, launched here today.

I'm hoping to release some very exciting Vauxhall news tomorrow, but it really helps to have general news from the ground because it's not always possible to survey the entirety of SE11 on a daily basis.

hi thanks for the information. My mum was intrigued to hear the Black Dog was in fact the original name. So, six hears later, the Black Dog is still going strong.
