AA Good Pub Guide 2015

This imposing corner-plot pub stands close to the heart of Carshalton village. The enclosed walled garden area houses a wood-fired pizza oven, whilst a newly developed private dining room is ideal for gatherings.

Both wet and food sides of the business are increasingly popular; six real ales attract beer lovers, whilst a gastro-style menu encourages diners to tarry a while in the modish interior.  Commence with a Warm Salad of Wood Pigeon with Roast Beetroot, Orange and Walnut Dressing, leaving room for mains such as Pan-fried Grey Mullet with King Prawns and Herb Puy Lentils with Caper and Pernod Sauce.

Square Meal Review 2015

In a leafy swathe of suburbia around Carshalton Ponds, the Sun is a discreet all-rounder with a friendly community vibe, splashes of new colour and some original Victorian fittings – plus a cracking garden out back.

Food and drink are taken seriously and the kitchen delivers a roster of please-all, homespun dishes at reasonable prices: pub staples such as Crispy Belly Pork with Scallion Mash or Ribeye Steak with Chunky Chips might sit alongside Med-inspired Courgette and Rosemary Soup with Arancini or Herb-flecked Seafood Linguine with White Wine Cream Sauce, while desserts are in the Sticky Toffee Pudding Chocolate Fondant mould.

Proper pub hospitality, real ales, coffee mornings and themed evenings keep everyone happy in this family-friendly watering hole.

The Sun’s Future Looks Bright – Sutton Guardian Review

The Sun gives as warm a welcome as its namesake. While a lot of effort has gone into drawing in families it balances nicely with functioning as a proper pub and community hub, hosting quiz nights and coffee mornings.

At a casual glance the tasteful pub decor looks like it has been there for years… full marks for effort, especially in the lovely beer garden.  There was a highly acceptable selection of ales, with the odd Belgian beer on tap and a decent wine list. It truly scored with the addition of the kitchen – children are allowed until 7pm and we arrived just before 6pm and the three of us were happily fed and watered before the deadline. We wended our way into the evening and resolved to go back there as soon as possible.
