Visited on a sunday afternoon. Traditional interior, with tables stuffed a bit too close to each other, but plenty of space around the bar. Good international selection with lots of large tap handles, which makes it a bit different from other UK pubs and actually makes it slightly towards a euro pub. Service seemed not really knowledgeable, so a bit strange bird in the beer scene.
Visited the 12th January 2016 - Nice place on the main street. Good ambiance and really cosy. Nice woody place. Selection is really nice with some good reference for a good price. Service is friendly and let you have a taster to do your choice. I really appreciate to visit this place, the bad point is the accessibility just able by bus... But this place is a good value and must be visited. I might will overrate it just to force ratebeerer to visit this place :)
Breweries like De Molen, Stone, Mikkeller and To Øl are represented on an impressive keg menu, supported by six hand pumps with real ales from Magic Rock and Summer Wine among others. Good range of regional and imported bottles as well. Street corner, medium-sized and modern pub in the middle of Camberwell. The pub is to be found in Des de Moor’s “London’s top 25 places to drink”. (Visited with Finn late on Sunday eve, 29.11.2015).
Not as cosy as I had expected. Very very noisy and busy on a Wednesday night. Service is ok but kind of slow / uninterested and almost annoyed by me asking questions about the beer instead of just ordering and moving on. Selection is good, cask and tap had quite a few interesting things. Didn’t spend too much time over the bottle list, because of 1. time issues, 2. a lot of (Belgian) import and 3. money. But it’s very extensive and diverse. Interesting to see!
Having read other reviews wasn’t quite sure what to expect. But boy o boy was I not disappointed. The selection is absolutely mind blowing. They seem to focus a lot on foreign craft beer as well as some better belgian stuff on tap. Very friendly and unpretentious (not a beard in sight or single speed bike in sight!) atmosphere. Having a look at some of the rarities they have in bottles you begin to truly appreciate the work that goes into keeping up such a selection. The place itself is a nice clean pub with fairy lights up behind the bar and pleasant sod music in the background. I don’t know how this place has been overlooked in the craft beer scene in London but I for one know where I’ll be drinking from now on.
Stormbird is a very nice modernised corner pub with fairy lights behind the bar and large windows opening out onto the street on two sides, so on a warm spring evening it was light and airy. There was a nice atmosphere although it has to be said that it’s a bit like a goldfish bowl and obviously attracts a trendy crowd, including a few people who were drinking pints of Kronenbourg - puzzling, as the beer list is terrific. They have five casks and about ten keg taps and they serve thirds as well as halves and pints. We’d just come from Craft Brixton and I’d say the choice of beers here was just as good and at considerably lower prices. Well worth a visit.

Visited early on a Saturday evening. Good spot. Kind of like craft beer for advanced beginners. Nothing too exciting on tap (cask or keg, both decent) or in bottle but plenty of solid standards like The Kernel, Summer Wine. Busy place with lots of energetic young folks. Very expensive. One of the better options for the area I suppose.
