user reviews of Jack Beards at the Plough, Camberwell

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

Went there on Friday night (11th April) and was blown away by this new little bar. decorated beautifully, huge tables, leather chairs, tasteful.

The band were playing not too loudly when I arrived... and they honestly are one of the best gig bands I have heard - the singer didn't sing one note out of tune, and the drummer (rumoured to be ex Dire Straits) was spine-tingling! Apparently they are a fixture on Fri nights.

I had curried chicken with rice and peas... well if it could have lasted all night I would have been a very happy woman. It was DELICIOUS. Authentic, good portion, hot. My husband had the curried goat which he raved about (and he's a chef and very hard to please!).

Service was a bit slow, but they seem to be finding their feet.

My friends and I had a fantastic evening, and shall be going back again soon, and again after that...

This is now "Amaryllis Bar and Kitchen".

Intend to check it out as soon as the next wage packet approaches my general location.

Still got the builders in there, hoping fervently that this will be a lovely little place to go.

Anyone got any news on this?

A very decent, if quiet, pub. Friendly landlord and staff. No nonsense decor. Good place to escape the yuppies across the street and read a paper.

is Jack Beard's the smallest pub chain in the world? there's this, the one up on Crystal Palace Parade, apparently one in Tooting and that's it. i don't imagine they're mentioned too often at Wetherspoons board meetings..... "and after the short presentation on the new soul-evaporation air-conditioning equipment we'll be looking at Jack Beards quartery figures - a cause of great concern gentlemen"

this place is an utter tip btw, yeah it's in a sh1t location but so is Holland and they've done a good job there. utter chaos behind the bar when i went in, the barman appeared to actually be a postman on his lunch break (had the sweater on, no lie) and the barmaid was wearing roller-blading kneepads.

bought luke his birthday pint here - classy place for a classy geezer
