Guests can also enjoy a more formal ambience in the upstairs dining room, where an elegant main menu and gourmet bar snacks are on offer.

Came here for a late Sunday lunch and the place was very full - hard to grab a seat inside, though we found a table eventually. There is outdoor seating as well. As for food, my fish & chips were delish! My friend ordered a pie and found it to be mediocre, she was disappointed that it didn't have any cheese on top. The Sunday roasts that everyone was ordering around me looked yummy. Overall, a...more

Nice pub with lots of space but quite busy on a Sunday.

The downstairs has more modern decor while upstairs you get ceiling murals and a fireplace. There's an outside area which will be great in summer as it's more of a semi- hidden side garden than an open front and has couches too.

The atmosphere was nice but I think more appropriate for bigger groups. If you have 10 people going for lunch...more

Well, apart from the service (it's really slow...), everything is OK.

It's a good place to have a drink with a colleague or friend. There is a beer garden outside, which is a really nice spot in the sunny days.

The food is also tasty although it's a pub. Highly recommend the Wild salmon fish cakes - they are just amazing !more

Great local pub with a decent outdoor area.

Probably called The Sun because it's perfect for when the sun is out. Probably a little stuffy if it's raining.

I've been here numerous times for friend's parties, which the perfect venue for such festivities.

The pub itself has great character, a great vibe and decent priced drinks.

I've never eaten here, though the food looks okay......more

Decent beer. Decent food. Decent garden.

Not loads to say about this place. Good selection of beer. Not incredible but perfectly acceptable. Decent food. Solid pub grub.

It's just a nice place to drink. Escape the grey, pyjama wearing "individuality" of clapham and come here for a beer and some food. And a chat. Significantly better when it's sunny.

Oh and try the Bloody Mary. It's decent.more
