The Camberwell Arms to Run New Bar at Dulwich Picture Gallery This Summer The Camberwell Arms will run an on-site bar in Dulwich Picture Gallery’s new summer pavilion, offering a classic drinks and special sharing plates menu. The temporary bar, which is built into the unique design of the pavilion will be open throughout the weekend with extended opening hours on Fridays and Sundays and will provide the perfect space to relax and take in the surrounding landscape and architecture.

Delicious, and refreshing, the list will include drinks like Lilet on ice, white port & tonic and Chinotto. The food will focus on the high quality produce that The Camberwell Arms is known for. Charcuterie, smoked salmon, pickles, ice cream and sorbet will all be made in-house whilst the rest will be carefully sourced from the best UK producers. The menu will include radishes with anchoiade, prawns with aioli and crab on toast alongside other delicious summer snacks designed to share. Designed by emerging architects, IF_DO, the Dulwich Pavilion celebrates 200 years since the Gallery rst opened to the public with moveable mirrored panels that re ect and disrupt the surroundings. As well as the bar, the pavilion will host a range of events and activities including free Friday Lates in June and July. 78 | The Gentleman Magazine Michael Davies, Head Chef at The Camberwell Arms said: “We can’t wait to bring what we do at The Camberwell Arms to the beautiful setting of the Dulwich Picture Gallery. Our drinks are perfectly suited to its green open spaces which feels a world apart from London’s crowded city centre. We love the idea that people can visit the Gallery and then have a drink and snack in our bar afterwards, particularly during the new, free Friday Lates. It is somewhere that I would love to visit myself ” Ellie Manwell, Head of Audience Development at Dulwich said: “As we mark 200 years of opening we want to offer our visitors the best experience possible - from art and culture to food and drink. The Camberwell Arms at the Dulwich Pavilion will be a great addition to a trip to the Gallery and a new reason to stay and enjoy the Gallery grounds and Soane’s masterpiece of a building. The innovative, contemporary bar design, covered yet open to the elements, means we can offer our visitors something completely different.”
