Ethelred The Unsteady left this review about The Phoenix

As we abseiled down, from the summit of Herne Hill towards Camberwell, our ropes twanged on the Phoenix. It was giving out a pleasant, relaxed vibe, among the drinkers sitting outside on that sunny evening, and so we decided to take a look in.

Well, the ceiling is remarkably high. I'm not sure if the building had suffered a fire at one time (and hence the name), but that's what you could easily get if so then, I suppose.

There were three hand pulls. Doombar was on one, and something with the American flag on another. The third did not ring any bells, and since we were on our way to the Hermit's Cave, we moved on after a look round.

Still, it is a lively, interesting conversion, simply but solidly done with its bare brick walls and so on, and I'd happily give it a longer visit.

Nice enough pub, huge clock hanging over your head. There are doors leading onto the station, but they have been sealed shut. Fancy fish & chips with pea puree rather than mushy peas, on the lunch menu at £11.75. A bit out of my price range. 4 real ale taps, though only 3 on. Portobello Bronze Star at £4.40, also Doombar & Speckled Hen.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Phoenix

Imposing converted station building, spanning high above the tracks at Denmark Hill. High ceilings and verging on gastro-pub furniture, decor and menu. Pleasant enough, though. Four real ales on handpump: Doom Bar, Tribute, Junction and Wild Beer Bibble (£4.10).
