According to a comment, the España Tapas Bar is to close down. I’m very sad, but I can’t say I’m surprised; the times we went there, there were rarely more than one or two other tables. It didn’t help that it was stuck inside the horrible neon‐encrusted fascia of the Marbella hotel, and that most of the tables were tucked around the corner so it often appeared empty from outside.
But we’re losing a restaurant with friendly staff and tasty, fresh, organic food — just what I would have thought the area needed. It does seem to be true that if you’re not a pub, you’re going to struggle. Other than Indian, is Camberwell capable of sustaining a restaurant?
