Drink at The Phoenix in Windsor Walk, Denmark Hill

Situated in a grand building designed by Charles Henry Driver and built in 1865 in an Italianate style, the Phoenix in Denmark Hill occupies the old ticket office above what is now Denmark Hill Station. It takes its name from the fire that gutted the building in 1980, when it was only saved as a result of a campaign by the Camberwell Society, with support from the Southwark Environment Trust and others.

Following some successful fundraising, the building was restored and opened as a pub - The Phoenix and Firkin - in 1984. Nowadays, it is a smart bar with an impressive range of different beers and an amenable staff who are willing to go that little extra mile to make guests happy, as they did when your author visited with friends for a Saturday afternoon hot chocolate after a concert in nearby Ruskin Park.
