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.

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.

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.
