OUtstanding, sentational food. Mike is a genius chef .  Simple fresh ingredients perfectly cooked, what more can you ask for. A full page positive from Fay Maschler too!!

"But don’t hold your breath expecting a Foxtons next door". Seriously, don't. And be thankful. While we in Camberwell have done well to hide Camberwell's hidden gems from Foxtons and their ilk, alas we haven't down so well avoiding the critical scrutiny of reviewers like the one above. This sniffy review, and its knowing thinly-velied snobbery, is appalling and deserves no place in the otherwise excellent Time Out. 


The quite costly overhaul of the old pub has delivered a good dining venue very much in the style of the Canton and the Anchor & Hope, but with a partially open kitchen. We had the spit-roasted chicken, with potatoes, watercress (not soggy) and wholegrain mustard last night, and it was great and reasonable value for 2 at £27. The lager-lager-lager crowd weren't apparent . Despite the bar serving a fairly mediocre selection of lagers on tap, the only thing ending up well "battered" was me after a few bottles of their very good Lake District ales.


There was a fairly constant stream of police vehicles outside; the local bobbies are very fond of the excellent F.M. Mangal across the road. That might not be apparent to you if you keep your head down and hurry fearfully back to your more salubrious neighbourhood. But don't do that, it would be a terrible shame. 


UPDATE: Since writing this review, the original TO review above by Guy Dimond, has been edited to remove the less-than-helpful remarks I referred to. I applaud TO for that, and hope you get a chance to visit the Camberwell Arms.

So people never get stopped by police elsewhere? Honestly TO, please weed out casual, inaccurate and pointless comments of this kind.
