Wikipedia gives us the quick following overview of the area: “ Denmark Hill is an area and road in Camberwell, in the London Borough of Southwark, London, England. It is a sub-section of the western flank of the Norwood Ridge, centred on the long, curved Ruskin Park slope of the ridge. The road is part of the A215 which north of its main foot, Camberwell Green, becomes Camberwell Road and south of Red Post Hill becomes named Herne Hill, another district. “

Are there any good pubs in Denmark Hill?

As Londoners, we cherish our local pubs. Denmark Hill has some great go-to spots. From smaller, more family run chains to larger pubs like WeatherSpoons, there is a pub for everyone in the area.

Pub name Name Address Description
Bear 296a Camberwell New Rd Camberwell SE5 0RP Having closed in Nov 2017 and the upper floors converted into flats, the pub finally reopened in May 2023 under new management. Bright, spacious interior with central bar. Open vinyl session and quiz night on Sunday. Main online presence is Instagram @thebearcamberwell
Cambria 40 Kemerton Road Camberwell SE5 9AR Tucked away down one of Camberwell’s side streets close to Ruskin Park and having been closed for almost 3 years, the Cambria reopened in March 2022 as the first London outlet of the small Prospect Pubs & Bars chain established by the original founders of Redcomb Pubs (sold to Young’s in 2019). The pub was given a substantial refurbishment including moving the bar back to create a larger drinking area and the addition of a rear garden room with retractable roof. The smart, spacious interior retains its wood panelling and flooring. At the rear is a spacious outdoor area complete with a mural by local Brixton Brewery.
Crooked Well 16 Grove Lane Camberwell SE5 8SY A restaurant and bar specialising in British food. Now free of tie, the beer range has been expanded with cask, craft and bottle bottled beers added to the cocktails and extensive wine list. Dining experiences, including beer versus wine dinners with local brewer and sommeliers/wine makers going head to head are also held. Breakfast is available at weekends in addition the daily lunch and dinner services. There is a discount for NHS workers on drinks only during the week 5pm-8pm (excluding other offers). Has a sibling site in The Perryvale at Forest Hill.
Fox on the Hill 149 Denmark Hill Camberwell SE5 8EH Spacious and welcoming Wetherspoon pub situated, as its name suggests, as an imposing detached building at the top of a steep hill. Inside are a number of cosy, low-screened booths, whilst outside is a spacious garden, smokers’ terrace and front lawn with picnic tables. Wall displays depict the history of the local area, including the well known Victorian former resident John Ruskin, after whom the nearby park is named. Unusually for a Wetherspoon house all toilets are at pub floor level. There are 16 handpumps here in banks of 6, 6 & 4. Between 4 and 6 changing real ales are usually available and the pub hosts regular Meet the Brewer events. Breakfasts are served from 8am with alcohol served from 9am.
George Canning 123 Grove Lane Camberwell SE5 8BG A 19th century pub named after a former Foreign Secretary who subsequently became Prime Minister for the last 119 days of his life in 1827.

Grove House 26 Camberwell Grove Camberwell SE5 8RE An impressive interwar pub reminiscent of a French villa, taken over by the small Parched London group in April 2021.

A variety of table and seating styles are available, including sofas, banquette, plus high backed armchairs in the games conservatory.

Hermits Cave 28 Camberwell Church Street Camberwell SE5 8QU Just off Camberwell Green on a street corner, this family-run pub provides a haven from the bustle of the area. With a curved frontage, lovely Victorian windows, bare-boarded floor and simple décor, it is popular with a lively, mixed clientele. There is no music, so conversation reigns. Sport is shown on muted TV in one corner or occasionally on a big screen. 7 handpumps in all, and in late 2023 reports were received that the pub had aspirations to use them all.
Joiners Arms 35 Denmark Hill Camberwell SE5 8RS The pub first opened in the 1800s and at that time was frequented by joiners. Since the 1920s it has been an Irish pub. The pub is split into two bars, a smaller front bar area from a larger more modern room at the back which has a small stage for live music. The pub boasts an impressive range of spirits and an eye-catching tiled mural on the front bar wall being a panel bearing the arms of the Joiners’ & Ceilers’ Company, one of some 100 City livery companies. Its motto is “Join Truth With Trust”. The kitchen is located behind the front bar in what was originally the glazed-in Publican’s office. Quiz night Wednesday. Local resident Florence Welch’s favourite pub (ES Magazine 13.07.18) and she has been known to gig here too.

Listed brick Victorian railway station building with a nice wrought-iron canopy. Spacious bare-boarded interior with a long bar made from a mahogany tree, high raftered ceiling, a huge station clock (from Llandudno Junction), small gallery at one end accessed via a spiral staircase. 4 handpumps. Bar staff say closing times during the week is temperamental if business is light.
Stormbird 25 Camberwell Church Street Camberwell SE5 8TR Sister pub to the Hermits Cave across the road, offering a bare-boarded and contemporary feel.

An area to the right rear has a raised area for diners. 2 vinyl decks play the music here. 6 handpumps.
