    • Editor's Description
      The Camel joins the bustling bar street at Yueyang Lu, as that areas most massive sports bar.Australian management makes sure there's an Australian bent to the sport shown on the various televisions therein (Australian Rules Football is shown on direct feed). After their renovation in late 2016, they've now got 4 TV walls and 11 70-inch TV screens, as well as a heated smoking area out on the patio. The inside is now strictly non-smoking. They've also installed 20 beer taps with a selection of craft beers, and the menu has added some higher-end fare to the standard nachos, burgers and parma. There is no longer a TV screen in the urinal.

    Have just been the unfortunate recipient of the worst pub beef pie and mash I have ever been served outside of a train station or football ground. Sallow, cold and lumpy mash in a frayed coating of partially dried gravy, a sporadic pea sadly peeping out here and there. This sidled next to a reheated packet of flavorless mince in what could only have been a rubber based pastry of some sort.

    Get this disaster in order. This is my office local. I need a good pie for lunch sometimes. Please for the love of all that is sacred, message me when your pie is up to scratch and invite me back to try it again. I am more than happy to rewrite my reviews.

    Readers: do bear in mind that this is a great robust sports bar, huge screens, free pool, lively atmosphere. I just want that damn pie fixed.
