Hermit's Cave, Camberwell
Revisited with 7 people. Although we got a large round the landlord refused to provide free tap water to a friend with a kidney infection, thereby breaking the terms of the Licensing Act.
He refused to discuss or even dispense water to anyone else.
It is definitely not the best pub in Camberwell. The Bear and the Joiners nearby are both better nowadays. The best pub in the area is the Cadeleigh Arms on Shenley Road.

Not really near a tube or a train stop. Plenty of bus routes to Camberwell though including the 36, 171 and 436. Our advice is go to Oval tube and get a bus from there. Once into Camberwell keep an eye out for the pub - though it's so big you shouldn't miss it.
