The Scene

Slightly removed from the barhopping mecca of Clapham High Street, The Sun is a welcoming neighborhood haunt that still manages to attract a lively young crowd with its solid pub grub, lengthy tap list, and large beer garden.

Slightly removed from the barhopping mecca of Clapham High Street, The Sun is a welcoming neighborhood haunt that still manages to attract a lively young crowd with its solid pub grub, lengthy tap list, and large beer garden.

The sparsely decorated main room is dominated by a crescent bar that gives three-sided access to the college-aged Brit, Aussie, and Kiwi regulars who pile in for a pull of cider or a thick burger.

Well-worn stools make up much of the seating, while an upstairs area full of couches provides ample room for mellow locals to relax over plates of pork shoulder or fresh sea bass.

Always overflowing on the weekends, the lush beer garden is particularly popular on Sundays when the venue holds its weekly barbecue of roasted meat, seasoned veggies, and Yorkshire pudding – and powerful heat lamps and big parasols keep the communal picnic tables full even when the London clouds creep in.

Upbeat and chatty, The Sun is always a bright spot for good food and outdoor drinking, whether or not the English weather cooperates.

Cool music and delicious meals
Albert B. Apr 4, 2013
First thing that caught my eye and made me enter the pub was it is name: the Sun, and some warmth, is, perhaps, single most important thing missed in London these days. Indeed the pub turned out to be a very pleasant and welcoming place with lots of folks apparently enjoying their delicious meals and listening to some cool music. I was pleasantly surprised by prices which, by London standards, were very much acceptable even for a tourist enjoying his few last days in the city. It was not Sunday though so I missed what the booklet on my table called the ‘weekly barbecue of roasted meat.’ Anyway a very good place to visit for anyone who wants to experience British pub.
