The Bear Free House Description

A former Victorian gin palace, The Bear has undergone a sympathetic restoration including the addition of dark wood floor and panelling, which compliment the understated furnishings surrounding the horse-shoe bar. With ever-changing guest bitters and a wide selection of interesting and unusual bottled beers, most tastes are easily satisfied. The accompanying gastro menu features English and French country dishes that are of particular quality, and come at a very reasonable price.

“I found this place doing a google search on Camberwell, and decided to give it a try, and certainly was not disappointed, huge selection of British and European beers that i tried quite a few of! I had smoked eel with beetroot and horseradish to start and then pork belly with lentils and both dishes were absolutely perfect. The portions are very generous, this is the type of simple european cooking with top quality ingredients that i love! The staff were very friendly, especially the friar tuck lookalike who was very happy to help me choose my beer. Highly recommended.”

“Arrived one Sunday for lunch with a group of friends and stayed all afternoon!! Food was excellent, fresh, hot and plenty of it. Lovely veggies and the chips were FAB..... We tried it all! Good wines as well. My bloody Mary was bloody marvellous. All in all - good! Friendly staff as well...... Pity there was no garden to speak of - never mind! Can't have everything.”
