Recently discovered the Bear Free House, I thought it was a joy. It was refreshingly good, fresh meals served as a meaningful portion no small stuff! My partner is a lover of good meats and enjoyed the lamb which was I think the most expensive on the menu at 16pounds. I have an interesting salad created by a medley of peach, mint, mozzarella and parma ham. It was very fresh and perfect on the palate which I thoughtfully washed down with an Australian Semillon.
We shared an entree of clams which were cooked with a chorizo, coriander and chilli mix. We also had a dessert. My partner had a fabulous banana and toffee sandwich, rich but so easy to eat (yes I dug into his). I had the plum sponge with cream. After such a fantastic meal hitting and exceeding all of my expectations I was let down with the sponge, as I was lead to believe it would be light and fluffy. It was firm...not stale just firm to be able to take the plum jus I guess?
Staff were friendly enough without being annoying. Decor, I enjoyed very much. Scrubbed back wooden tables, candles and high on the wall a smattering of fairy lights.
I cannot emphasise how fresh the food was. No layer of oil, no pre-processed food. For this reason I pop in there whenever I can. It is a treat to find in Camberwell.
