Visited today for a Sunday lunch for four people and had booked as the pub has good reviews for food. We had not visited before and were not made aware after we were shown to our table in the restaurant that we had to order food and drinks at the bar. We ordered the lamb and beef roast. The lamb...

Came to visit with 3 friends and we sat on the bar to have some food. The beer selection is truly amazing and the bar snacks are delicious. Pity the pub smelled quite bad. The company should look into this and fix it as it may wear many people off!

We live in neighbouring Putney, and The Sun Inn in Barnes is one of our favourite destinations for a weekend lunch or dinner. The food is very good, the service is very friendly, and the atmosphere in this old pub is excellent (particularly if you get a seat by the fire!).

My favourite Pub in Barnes, new food menu is sensational, particularly the scallops and asparagus with poached egg. Has a great selection of wine( do try the Lunatic red) and beers. Love the decor, especially now, with the Christmas decorations is even more cosy and wonderful. Super friendly staff,that seemed to know all the regulars.

Great food, best in the area and not the most expensive. Imaginative menu. Great setting. Very attentive staff. No wonder Jimmy Edwards and the film crews were regulars in the '50's !

Went with a group of friends to this pub on a cold winter's evening but bar tender replied in negative to all 3 of our drink orders - - hot whiskey, an Irish coffee and a coffee - "no hot drinks". So much for the faux cosy atmosphere. I remember several balmy summer evenings at this pub from years past... More

Popped in for Sunday lunch, ordered roasts all round. Good chicken portions, little tight with the beef, just two narrow slices which were a bit gristly. Two veg,carrots and cabbage,also a bit tight,another veg would have been nice. Yorkshire pudding was lovely. The roast potatoes were like bricks, unable to cut and almost teeth breaking round the edges. £15 for... More

The winter menu has a great list of comfort foods. The prawns, chorizo and sourdough was precisely what I needed on such a bitter day.

A long established pub located in the centre of Barnes opposite the pond and green. I can only imagine during the summer a great location when sitting outside supping a pint or 2 watching the world going by. However lets get back to a grey, overcast, wet day in November.................. A friendly pub to visit with a great atmosphere, selling... More

Description
Barnes' favourite watering hole.Overlooking the famous Barnes village pond, The Sun Inn is a gem of pub serving fresh, tasty pub food, in a friendly and relaxing atmosphere. We also pour a blimmin' great pint of locally brewed real ale and equally tasty Belgian beer. And being near to the banks of Old Father Thames, we're perfectly located for a spot of Pimm's o'clock during the boat race in April.
