Two beer gardens in a unique Camberwell pub
This charming indie pub is both a historical and cultural site, and is beloved by locals and visitors alike. With an inviting beer garden and a rooftop terrace, this local is the perfect place to relax, enjoy a drink, and socialise. Despite its impressive range of spirits, a good old pint of Guinness is still the favourite among customers.
This historic pub first opened in the 1800s and was frequented mostly by joiners. Since the 1920’s it has turned into an Irish pub, and is well known for its lively music scene. Customers have the choice of which atmosphere to partake in, since the pub is split into two bars: one a smaller front area, and a larger room in the back with a small stage for live music. Stop by on Thursday nights to enjoy open mic evenings, or take a look at their social media to see who is playing. Fans of Florence + the Machine might recognise this pub’s interior from the music video for South London Forever.
All crowds are welcome at the Joiners Arms
The clientele of this local are a varied group, which the owner sees as a sign of a great pub.
