Hip enough for the local Camberwell Art College, Hermitís Cave is just a simple little pub with a good atmosphere. Made for afternoon drinking.

With pubs across the country still shutting down at a rapid rate, the idea that you donít have to change with the times is fanciful at best. But, the Hermitís Cave is proof that thereís still space for the humble, traditional pub that doesnít have the backing of a brewery chain. A short walk from Camberwellís hectic high street, the drinkers youíll find in the Hermitís Cave offer a fairly good representation of this South East London neighbourhood. Students, artist types, loners and locals who look like they moved in with the furniture make for a refreshing atmosphere. You may well walk in to be confronted by a glaring mixture of men propping up the bar in silence on one occasion, only to find a lively afternoon inspired by football on the big TV on another. Itís a lottery and youíll have to walk through that door to find out what youíre going to get.

Traditionally decked out with plenty of greens and browns, a mounted bullís head and some battered looking couches, the Hermitís Cave is gloriously stuck in the past. The ales on tap are as exotic as the drink selection gets but the quality of the cask is good. If you can put up with the occasional surly attitude you can tend to find behind the bar then thereís no reason you canít enjoy a pint here. And thatís a pint that wonít cost you over £4.

The Hermitís Cave is a peculiar pub with bags of character that anyone residing in Camberwell should visit once at least.
