We'd booked a table for a 5.30pm dinner. Turned up to find no table reserved in our name (as they said they weren't busy), so they showed us to the free tables at the back of the pub, near the Kitchen and ever banging Staff Exit door. How to make you feel a valued customer - NOT! Ordered 2 pork... More

My last review of this pub – a favourite for me – criticized the food offering. Sadly, I have to repeat my criticism. We visited again in mid-January for lunch. Scotch egg, one of the better dishes, was out of stock, so I risked the scallops (again). I was presented with a plate of perhaps three (or two?) minute scallops, the... More

Just couldn't ask for a better day spent with friends. The Sun Inn is very cosy and welcoming. I think I can speak for my friends group as we really felt a warm atmosphere. It was like an extension of our own house. The staff made sure that we were part of the "family". Even thought we weren't planning to... More

If you don't mind waiting for ever to be served and don't mind your roast chicken tasting of some weird 'smoked' taste that was vaguely reminiscent of the disinfectant smell in the toilets then you could possibly do worse than The Sun.

I hit this place for lunch with a group of friends. We were doing the putney to Hammersmith walk along the Thames so this made for a good lunch stop. It is a nice looking pub with a good atmosphere - lots of different sections and areas. I had the chicken pot pie which was very good. The fries were... More

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...

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.
