So finally on Friday, 30 November 2012, the Sun and Doves pub on Coldharbour Lane SE5 will reopen.
After over 14 months of closure the much missed pub (pictured as it undergoes transformation) is set to reopen as The Sun of Camberwell.
According to new tenants Antic the Sun of Camberwell will continue the former pub’s emphasis on food. Improvements to the pub include an “enlarged trading area with a separate function room, a new open kitchen and improved disabled/baby changing facilities.”
Antic have done a great job with the Tiger pub on Camberwell Green and so I have high hopes for the Sun.
What really made a S&D special pub (apart form the art, quiz, music nights, new year celebrations and films) and gave it the edge over Camberwell’s other great pubs ‑the Cambria Arms, Bear, Tiger, Crooked Well, George Canning etc etc- was the garden and I look forward to sipping beer into the evening outside next summer.
