CAMBERWELL : The Neighbours

Camberwell has shown us its vibrancy + buzz since we opened in October with plenty of places to Eat, Drink + generally Socialise.

In this round of the OFF - CUT Journal we lend an insight into other local businesses within a short walking distance from ourselves.

The Cafes:


We like to think we’re a combination of all the good things in life – coffee, craftsmanship and community. We’re not only here to help with your morning caffeine fix, our mission is to create great coffee in order to support young people taking a step up into employment. We think the best way to do that is to build a community that invests in each other, that includes you!

So whether you’re after a place to work or a caffeine perk, our door is always open.

The Pigeon Hole

The Pigeon Hole has been a staple in the Camberwell coffee scene since July 2014. I believe that our customers choose to visit us not just because we serve the best coffee and food in the area, but because they enjoy spending their cherished time with us. In a world where everything is so busy, The Pigeon Hole makes for an ideal spot to leave everything behind and indulge in yourself.

The Pubs/Bars:

Camberwell Arms

The Camberwell Arms is a South London restaurant and bar, headed up by Chef Director, Michael Davies, who creates regularly changing menus based on seasonal and quality ingredients.

We specialise in high quality produce and simple cooking. If we can make something ourselves, we do – charcuterie, sausages, smoked fish, pickles, pasta, breads and ice cream are all made in house – whilst the rest is carefully sourced from the best producers and cooked on our charcoal grill.

Seabass Cycles

Seabass Cycles was established in 2013 with the opening of the Camberwell shop. The driving force was to open a bicycle shop that we would like to go to as a customer, and one that would appeal to all kinds of cyclists. We envisioned a shop with unbiased views on particular types of bike or style of riding, and a workshop that could cater for everyone from the carbon-riding athlete to the person who rides a clunky squeaker to the pub and back.

Brutal London Book -

This collection of unique and evocative photography of Brutalist architecture by Simon Phipps casts the city in a new light. Arranged by inner London Borough, BRUTAL LONDON takes in famous examples such as the Trellick Tower, the Brunswick Centre and the Alexandra Road Estate, as well as lesser known housing and municipal spaces. It serves as an introduction to buildings the reader may see every day, an invitation to look differently, a challenge to look up afresh, or to seek out celebrated Brutalism across the capital.

The book's portable size and maps for each borough make it useful and practical; while the design, by leading agency A Practice for Everyday Life, echoes the aesthetic of Brutalist architecture with rough textured edges and fonts inspired by the site maps of modernist estates.


Budget busting gifts for the Man in your life. Its only Christmas once a year!

Marram Co Shaving Set -

Our brushes, bowls & razors are meticulously designed and made. They’re a pleasure to look at, a pleasure to hold, and a pleasure to use. This set includes our unique double-layer, stainless-steel bowl and lid combined with our handsome badger-hair brush made from solid brass and plated in ammunition grade chrome as well as our Safety Razor. The head and neck of the razor are manufactured from solid brass. The handle is short but wide so that it fits into the palm of your hand for ultimate control – finished in the high-grade, black rubber for grip when wet and a more modern look to match the brush.
