Tris C left this review about The Camel

A first for us a few nights ago into this late Victorian corner pub and what a treat! The most noticeable thing on arrival is the beautiful glazed burgundy tilework with raised scroll motifs, the name picked out on cream coloured glazed tiles to the fascia, all of which probably dates from around 1900.
Inside it's a very dinky place, broadly L-shaped with bar to the rear, which is attractive and probably original, featuring an unusual brass handrail; to the rear is a lovely brass Victorian cash register. The floor is bare boarded and there's wainscoting to the rear, above which are some old prints. A couple of mirrors adorn the wall, which are covered with black and red floral wallpaper; wooden fittings are dark lacquered with lighting comprising mainly glass and brass hanging lanterns with similar sconce lights and gas effect spherical sconce lights to the rear snug.
There's food, but it's along the likes of pies, or what looked like stew and mash, all of which looked very good.
The pub was full barring one table - it's a small pub - and most customers seemed to be under 40. The staff were very friendly and efficient, delivering my pint of Adnams Sea Strange to my table and for just £4.20 - very good it was too. Sambrook's Wandle was also on offer, though two pumps were sadly unused. In all, there was a great feel to the place.
This makes for a good double with The Florists Arms next door and is a must-visit if in E2 - for once, you'll look forward to a pub that gives you the hump.

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.
