Pub SignMan left this review about The Tiger

This is a good-sized Antic pub – one of two in Camberwell – with a decent location opposite Camberwell Green. You enter into a large open-plan room with fine varnished dark wood flooring, large windows down two sides with heavy drapes and some funky wallpaper to the rear and left-hand side. The room’s spacious dimensions have allowed for copious amounts of seating to be arranged in several rows through the centre and along much of the perimeter, with standard tables and chairs mixing with low stools, some high tables and stools to the front and a couple of drinking ledges either side of the front door. The servery occupies much of the rear wall and has a tatty old wood panelled counter front with nice brass hand and foot rails and a grand mirrored bar back with a window through to the kitchen to one side. This part of the pub notably lacks any of the quirkier décor and furnishings that the Antic chain is generally known for, but there is a cosier side room to the left of the bar which has a few unusual items dotted around the wall in a lounge-like space with a good deal of extra seating across a split-level space that seemed much more peaceful that the busier, chaotic main bar area. TV screens in the main bar area were showing a live football fixture with the commentary on, which added to the general noise level.
There were just the two cask ales available on this visit, perhaps because of a drop in demand during the week although the pub was pretty busy on my Thursday evening visit. The options on this occasion were Volden Session and Butcombe Original, and the former was in great shape, served to me by a friendly member of the waiting team.
I quite liked this place thanks to its buzzy atmosphere and seeming lack of pretensions – something that can’t be said of all Antic pubs. The focus on just two ales may put some off, but the quality was very good so there were no complaints from me. This pub felt like an important part of the local community and I would be more than happy calling in here again the next time I’m passing through.

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

Quite an attractive emerald-green tiled and slightly curved façade. The typical Antic interior features three seating areas of differing sizes (two of which are located up a couple of steps) and a mix of furniture / eclectic decor throughout. Decent selection of six real ales on handpump, though, with Butcombe Bitter, Ghost Ship, Brains SA Gold and Trooper supplemented by BHB Cosmic II and a decent pint of Theakston's Vanilla Stout (£4.00).
