Visited The Camel after a long walk with my dog. Was made to feel very welcome, offered dog bowl and treats. Friendly staff, great service with a lovely sunny garden and good selection of drinks. Well worth a visit

Random visit as was nearby. They fitted a group of 5 of us plus one whippet. They were so friendly and fussed over our whippet. Super perfect pub food for a Sunday. They looked after all the well behaved dogs- so recommended! We will be...back- the ladies behind the bar were wonderful.More

The Camel in Bethnal Green is a fantastic traditional East End Boozer and a favourite of our old boys club. Not our first visit it has to be said but it just gets better and better. Lovely landlady and great staff provide a warm and...welcoming atmosphere. Excellent line up of Ales including a gorgeous drop of Wandle and a scrumptious selection of Pies. Note to self must go again soon!More

Always loved The Camel and called in NYE for a couple…got chatting to so many people, got drunk, went home happy…it’s a creative, boozy, cockney atmosphere. Just brilliant. Sat next to Debbie the manager who was having a great time with her very gorgeous friends…didn’t...stay til’ midnight- maybe next year. Thanks Debbie and everyone!More

The staff always accommodating and friendly. The atmosphere was family friendly. We had a 6 and 12 year old with us. The meat pies and beer were delicious.

I was at the Camel with my wife Saturday night. It’s one of our favourite pubs, but don’t away get the chance to go there. What happen that evening, was unpleasant for me, my wife any anyone who witnessed it. When I spoke with the...manger (a few days later), she was shocked by what has happened and very apologetic. She reassured me that the Camel is not that kind of Pub. I believed her and all my previous visits to the Camel had been really enjoyable. I hope that my review goes some way in alleviate any concerns people may have about the pub and its staff. Lastly, I would also like to thank the women (seating behind us) who checked on us, that night.More

The Camel is legendary locally and I've been so many times after work for good times. During the summer there's simply no where better in Bethnal.

Was at the Camel on Saturday night, looked like a nice pub especially on a wet night. But the night left me and my friends feeling very uncomfortable. Saw an Asian guy (he still had his NHS id badge on his belt, must have come...from work), there with his girlfriend get racially abuse by white guy, we could hear it a few table away. And the bar staff did nothing, worse than, they call him over by his first name and then got him another drink. Cannot believe how complicit the staffs were, in creating an unsafe place. We are never going back.More

I’m very shocked to read this. Unfortunately I was off Saturday night as I was having to isolate. This is not and never has been how we would expect people to behave air be treated at the pub. It is I hope an isolated case....More

If you put everything you really love in a pub into a pie The Camel would come out a tasty No.1 everytime. My second visit to this hidden East London gem with 8 of my old mates and cor blimey, strike a light it was...bloody marvelous. Wandle Ale, Pies to die for and a right lovely welcome.

Really enjoyed my visit today. The food was delicious and the beer was fresh. This is a friendly, cosy, authentic East London pub with a lovely neighbourhood atmosphere. It's a shame there aren't more pubs like this left in London. Will be going back soon.
