Herne Hill: The Prince Regent, Dulwich Road, SE24
There is a comprehensive architectural description of this fine Victorian pub, which is now a "gastropub", lifted directly, with due acknowledgement, from a London Borough of Lambeth document describing the proposed Poet's Corner Conservation Area as follows:

"The only public building within the proposed Conservation Area is a fine example of high Victorian pub architecture. "The Prince Regent" stands on a prominent corner site at the junction of Regent Street and Dulwich Road, the most southerly tip of the area. The facade has dramatic horizontal stripes of yellow stocks and red brick, broken by original sliding sash windows and brick pilasters. Built over three floors the top floor of the pub has a steep mansard roof with slate fish-scale hung tiles interspersed with striped brick dormer windows and a central stucco niche. In the niche stands the figure of the Prince Regent in ceremonial costume framed by a thick swath of stylised stucco vines and scrolls. Knotted ribbons of stucco fruit hang down below. The ground floor has pink granite pilasters and traditional large pub windows on both sides of the corner site. Although these large windows probably had etched glass originally the glass is now plain."
