The entrance is up a couple of steps through a front decked seating area facing the road. Inside there is an opened out single boarded room with a central almost island bar. An octagonal column directly in front of the counter has some colourful psychedelic markings towards the top. Little otherwise of note regarding decorations.
Two handpumps with one on serving Brockley Brewery Pale Ale which looks to be a regular reading earlier reviews.
Plenty of regular seating but there are some high tables at the back and a pair of tatty sofas to the front corner. Toilets are George and Georgettes. How crap and naff is that?

Nice pub, front garden catches the sun but next to a busy road. Front doors of the pub open up, so traffic noise comes inside too. 2 real ale taps, but a regular, sitting at the bar, had his newspaper covering one and half covering the other. Had to go round the side to see what it was. Tall shelves behind the bar with lots of wine, will need tall ladder for the top shelf. Food available at good prices. WiFi available.

The George Canning is situated in a quite area away from the middle of Camberwell.
Once inside there is a single L shaped room with the bar facing,the room is bare boarded,there was one tall chunky wood table and stools near the entrance,there were a few settees in the middle area,there was a TV at each side of the room which were showing the Arsenal v Man City game.
There is a slightly open kitchen to the rear left,it is within the main room but you car'nt see what is going on.
There was one real ale on the bar which was Brockley Pale Ale,this was a nice drink.
The pub was very busy with people watching the football.
This is a pleasant pub,i was quite happy having a drink here.
