Square Meal Review of The Camberwell Arms ?

From the team behind Waterloo’s Anchor and Hope and Stockwell’s The Canton Arms, comes this stripped-back gastropub in the same vein. Wooden floors and bare-brick walls chime with a menu of simply assembled ingredients, all chosen for the season and gutsily presented without garnish or fuss. Ox heart with blood-coloured beetroot and horseradish is a heavy-flavoured, carnal pleasure, while smoky barbecued cuttlefish is offset by a piquant coriander and almond ‘pesto’. A meaty skate wing topped with brown-shrimp butter has also impressed, even if the butter itself was so chilled that much of the dish had gone by the time it yielded. Service is attentive and friendly enough to be forgiven a few small blunders. There’s a bar area at the front if a swift pint is required, but there’s no denying that this is first and foremost a restaurant – despite the no-bookings policy.

Based inside a former pub, it was a large space with a pub style bar at the front and a dining room out the back complete with open plan kitchen. It was charmingly noisy; chatty diners, babies crying, chefs shouting “service!” – the atmosphere was great. The three of us were seated at a larger shared table which wouldn’t be everybody’s cup of tea but it didn’t bother us particularly...
