|Sitting on the corner of Artichoke Place, the Stormbird is much as described by recent posts here. However, was there really a Mr., a Mrs. or a Miss Artichoke? Roads are not usually named after tuberous or floral vegetables, but you never know. If so then we really do have a problem, as a globe artichoke is a completely different thing from a Jerusalem one, and the street sign simply doesn't give us a clue. You could ask the bar staff.|

|The Stormbird was the better of the 2 Camberwell pubs I tried last night. I visited the Hermit's Cave across the road back in 2010. Whilst they are related, they are worlds apart. The Hermits Cave has the better atmosphere. The Stormbird has the better beers. The latter has limited seating. I ended up propping up the bar. Only 3 real ales were on - Five Points Railway Porter, Hawshead Windermere Pale & Siren Liquid Mistress. Ciders were Sandford Orchards Devon Mist & Thistly Cross Whisky Cask. Another key draw is the craft beer selection, which included brews from Beavertown, Magic Rock, Left Hand Brewing, Mikkeler, Moor & Siren. There was also a decent bottle selection. Pub of the day in South East London for me and the Railway Porter was divine!|

|The Stormbird, as this pub is now called, continues to offer its wide selection of generally well-kept ales.|
However, its busy trade seems to have taken its toll on the furnishings, and it is beginning to resemble a students union bar perhaps.
Some investment is needed. It's looking a bit too lived-in these days.
A couple of session-strength beers would also encourage customers to stay longer and have more than just a couple, as sensible folk do with the strong stuff.

|One of just a couple of pubs left in South East London to tick from the 2016 GBG so on a Saturday afternoon in mid August I finally made it here.|
12.45pm and I was the first punter in closely followed by another. As described in the GBG this is the sister pub to the Hermits Cave across the road but couldn't be any different. Has the feel or more of a cafe bar than a pub, however no food served here just a large selection of ale and craft beer and a very good spirits list to boot.
Large open glass windows on to the main road, inside the floor boards are stripped bear and compliments the long wooden bar and ample wooden tables and chairs / stools.
The walls are adorned with repro craft beer signs, most of them being American and European.
As stated above the beer range is huge, with 12 keg pumps, 6 lager pumps and 6 cask handles. On this visit there were 15 keg ales on, 2 lagers, 3 ciders and 4 cask ales....plus the large bottle range which I counted as being 33+.....now that's some selection!!
I opted to have a keg pint with my choice being Moor Beer Company's Nor Hop @ 4.1%, a decent beer at £4.95 a pint. All prices of pints and bottles are displayed on various chalk boards.
I stopped for one beer but I may return, its not really a pub to me but the ale choice is very good, its varied and different from the choices elsewhere in the area and I don't live too far away.
