“Visited September 2018. Really a nice surprise.. Bus stop close by so should be easy to find a way to get here.. Spacy corner pub, lots of seatings inside, as a few outside.. cosy and friendly atmosphere, really get the impression this is where the locals meet up to have some nice craft beers. Nice selection of beers both on tap and as cans / bottles. Nice condition on the beers.. They do events like tap takeovers.. Friendly and service minded staff..“

“This was a pleasant surprise, being just a couple of doors from my hotel (Church St hotel), I walked past and saw the Magic Rock sign on the wall - an encouraging sign! Plenty of choice on cask and keg from some of the best breweries in the country (Tiny Rebel, Cloudwater, Marble, Five Points). Pub was dead when we arrived mid afternoon but quickly filled up. I don't think they served food but saw others taking in their own. Really nice atmosphere, good music and for a London pub, I thought the beers were very well priced!“

“Roomy pub with a great atmosphere on the main drag through Camberwell. It’s a 20 minute walk from Oval tube or Denmark Hill overground is closer. Around 15 beers on cask & keg, sometimes the line up is incredible, other times it’s ‘just’ solid. This place can get rammed at times, with seating at a premium. It’s a wet pub only, so they allow patrons to bring in their own food. Which is ace when the best, most authentic Turkish kebabs you’ll find in London are cooked up just opposite (FM Mangal). The kebabs and the pub are both recommended. Silk Road for tasty Chinese nosh is only a few doors up the street too“

“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.“

“This place is excellent, very nice and quite stuff on keg, only few casks though. Regularly showing off rare stuff, both on tap and bottle. Rather good value overall I would say.“

“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.“

“I was not expecting this to be so good and refreshing! Unusually unpretentious crowd for a beer bar in London, better than average selection (quite great, actually) and good friendly service.“

“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 17 May 2014).“

“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.“

“Nice modern bar/pub in Camberwell with a stylish craft beer interior and a really good range of kegged and cask real ales and craft beers. Busy and bustling later in the week with a young crowd. When I was in the line up featured cask beers from Tempest and Williamsburg and a keg range that included Brooklyn Sorachi Ace, Kernel Pale Ale, Kernel Saison, Mikkeller, Brewdog, and a decent range of stuff in several fridges. Service is friendly and helpful. Will be coming back here, although Camberwell not the easiest place to get to on public transport.“

“Visited 22/2/14. Great keg lineup with some interesting stuff on offer from Mikeller, Beacertown, Kernel and some more of the usual suspects. An extensive bottle list too. Disappointing on the cask front, only three on offer and two of them were off when I went :( Good atmosphere and was able to get a table easily on a Saturday night. Nice little gem in Camberwell and well worth a visit.“

“Surprisingly good craft pub in deepest, darkest Camberwell. Nice, airy space. Wooden tables, christmas lights behind the bar. The service was friendly. The selection was actually pretty good, bigger than their website indicates. They had some arcane stuff from Brodies alongside beers like Brooklyn Sorachi Ace. Mostly keg stuff, there’s only 2 cask beers. The bottle fridges looked nicely diversified. The prices were solid. They sell beers in third measures on request, which is pretty rare in London. Overall, a nice surprise. I don’t know if this place can survive in this random location, but they’re giving it a good shot.“

“Extremely friendly and helpful staff. Have seen growlers being filled a few times which is very unusual in London. Easily the best selection of any south east London bar outside zone 1. Permanent tap line from Kernel and semi-permanent lines from Brooklyn, Sierra Nevada, Magic Rock and Brodies.“

“Pleasant craft beer bar close to Camberwell Green. Decent selection of craft keg including guests. Was easily the best craft keg option in the wider area but now has strong competition from the two recent openings in Brixton.“

“Nice, airy pub with large wooden tables. Very friendly staff. Carefully selected draught and bottled beers, some local (e.g. The Kernel, Moncada), some overseas (e.g. Nøgne Ø, Sierra Nevada). Selection seemed to change frequently.“
