A consistently good pub, beers on latest visit were Sambrooks Wandle, Adnams Broadside and Oakham Citra, upgraded to 8/10.
September 2015
An attractive Brown tiled pub, one single long room with the bar running centrally along the back.Just two beers on, on my Tuesday afternoon visit, both from Sambrooks,Wandle and Pumphouse Porter.I like the ambiance of this pub, this was my second visit ,I'm sure there will be a third.

A classic, small, Victorian, street corner local.
The welcome from the staff was friendly and the pub popular on our Thursday lunchtime visit with many choosing to eat on the benches at the front of the pub. There's also a small courtyard at the back.
The Camel specialises in pies and there were many varieties on offer. They all looked good and a brisk trade was being done.
A chalk board inside advertises various cocktails with Bloody Mary's a speciality and there's a selection of board games available.
Beers were Oakham Citra, which flew down, Sambrooks Wandle, Adnams Ghost Ship and Five Points Pale. A decent selection for such a small boozer.
An unexpected gem in Bethnal Green which richly deserves a visit.

I was impressed by this little place,with it's wonderful glazed tiled exterior and street corner location.The small interior doesn't feel cramped with the clever use of several wall mirrors,there are a few high tables at the front ,and more traditional wooden furniture as you go to the rear.There are 4 handpumps ,and I went straight to the Oakham Citra,which was on top form.There was a friendly reception from behind the bar,and food tended to focus on pies ,but with upmarket fillings.They looked good,although I was just in for a beer.
I could have stayed much longer ,and would have been happy to sample both Adnams Ghostship and Five Points Pale from a good real ale offering.Benches outside were being well used on my lunchtime visit.
This pub is on the list for a revisit ,it sits in a road which is gentrifying but it retains a pub atmosphere and hasn't gone gastro. Dont miss it when you are next in Bethnal Green .
