The Story Of The Sun Inn

Dating back to the 1700s and overlooking the village pond, The Sun Inn is Grade II listed and has long been a cornerstone of community life in this leafy, tranquil area of London, enduringly popular with local residents and workers alike.

Reflecting the rural feel of Barnes, with its narrow lanes, ancient church and pastel cottages, this welcoming pub is all the more appealing during the summer months, with its charming front terrace and beer garden offering ample comfy seating, sheltered tables, barbecue facilities and patio heating for those days when the weather is a little more Britain than Bahamas...     

White-washed with a front cobbled terrace, this 18th century pub has been lovingly restored, blending sumptuous period features with upscale contemporary touches: wood panelling, leather furnishings and statement chandeliers combine to create an inviting bar area, but the jewel in the pub’s crown is its delightful rear beer garden –- the perfect spot for al-fresco dining or a glass of something special on a sunny day.  During those chillier months, the open fire is kept roaring, giving a home-from-home feel. Dog-friendly and fostering a relaxed and friendly village vibe, The Sun Inn holds the authenticity of a true British local close to its heart.

Only a 15 minute train journey from central London, yet feeling far removed from the city, The Sun Inn is well-connected to the capital via public transport and undoubtedly worth venturing off the beaten track to visit.
