Sun Inn (Bar)
7 CHURCH ROAD
“An attractive pub in quite a nice location. It’s sunk down from road level and opposite the pond and green. There are several rooms. When I visited they had three casks - Doom Bar, London Pride and Roosters Little Bird - and a reasonable selection of beers from micro breweries on keg. (Visited 13 March 2017).“

“Have visited a couple of times over the years (but not for a while). A smartish pub with a nice garden out the back. It’s at the Hammersmith end of Castelnau so rather more accessible by public transport than other Barnes pubs. But there are better beery options just over the bridge in Hammersmith so not really worth visiting for a drink unless you happen to be passing. It’s rather gasto-oriented to be a place I’d really want to visit just for a drink anyway. I’ve never eaten here so I don’t know what the food’s like.They only used to have a couple of, not very interesting, beers on cask but as I said earlier it’s been a while since I visited so I thought I should check their website to see what it says about beer there. The answer is nothing whatsoever. This, and the fact that the exterior signage says "The Bridge Pub & Dining Room" gives an indication of where their priorties lie. Should really revisit to confirm things haven’t changed but I don’t suppose I’ll be rushing back any time soon so this historic review will have to do - I’ll update if I do find myself here again..“

“Visited many times over the years, most frequently when I sometimes used to play cricket at the adjacent sports ground. It’s a sizeable Fuller’s pub, with a Regency-styled facade, located on a corner site on the busy main road. Clean and tidy inside with dark wood panelling but somehow never seemed to generate much in the way of charm. The four cask beers are all Fuller’s, including the current seasonal but, otherwise, I don’t think they change much. They also have Frontier Lager, Montana Red and Honey Dew on keg so, unlike some Fuller’s pubs, it has a pretty complete roster of their core beers. Handy if you happen to be visiting the London Wetland Centre but not really a destination pub and doesn’t have the villagey attraction of some other Barnes pubs. And because this part of London doesn’t have any nearby tube or train stations, it’s a bit out on a limb.“

Sun Inn (Bar)
7 CHURCH ROAD
“Visited a few times over the years. Quite a handsome building occupying a prime position overlooking the green. Stripped out, woody feel inside. Used to be rather unimpressive in beer terms (so I’d more likely hit the Coach & Horses just up the road) but I’ve heard that the selection has improved somewhat in recent years. Maybe not sufficiently to make it a beer destination per se but enough to lift it above the local opposition. Unfortunately, the dreaded Doom Bar is a regular on cask together with London Pride. These are supplemented by two guests that have included the likes of Ilkley & Thornbridge and a number of crafty kegs such as Siren & Camden plus some Belgians. Should take another look although I’m not sure when I’ll be in the area again.“

“Visited a few times over the years. A small and quite cosy Youngs pub dating back several hundred years. The garden is vastly bigger than the pub. As with most Youngs pubs these days, you’re likely to find a guest or two in addition to the Youngs Bitter & Special. Not really a beer destination but the beers have always been in good shape when I’ve visited so it’s a good a place for a pint as any if you happen to find yourself in Barnes and in need of a drink. Don’t suppose I’ll be rushing back any time soon so this historic review will have to do - I’ll update if I do find myself here again.“

60 /100 THE WHITE HART, THE TERRACE
“A long-established Young’s pub with a splendid riverside location (and terrace) in villagey Barnes. Has had a fair bit of tarting up since the far off days when I was a fairly frequent visitor after playing cricket at the sports ground across the river - rather less pubby and a lot more foody nowadays. The cask beers are mainly from the Young’s range, although they have more of them than many Young’s pubs, and you may occasionally find a Twickenham guest. There are also keg beers from Camden Town & Meantime. Not really worth a visit unless you happen to be in Barnes. And certainly not worth a special trip as there’s not really much of interest beerwise in the area.“

“Quite a small pub with a huge garden in the back. Very small choice of beers and mainly mainstream Young’s.“

Bridge (Bar)
204 CASTELNAU
“Located just a short walk across the bridge from Hammersmith, this Barnes pub at the top end of the suburb is a comfortable, predominantly wooden furnished pub with a quality appeal. It puts an emphasis on food but it’s just as good a place to drink, especially if the weather is good as it has a great garden area at the rear. Ales might be well known brands.“

“With its central bar and quality soft furnishings the inside of this bar is a fine place to eat or drink, and food does take a prominence in this pub. However it really comes into its own when the weather is fine as it occupies an wonderful position on a scenic bend in the Thames. It might be difficult to find a spot but if you can find one on its balcony or terrace you may end up watching the rowers on the river or the trains crossing the rail bridge for longer than you anticipated. Ales might be the very well known ones and live sport is shown.“

“Opposite the busy traffic light road junction at the bottom end of Castelnau , this Fuller’s pub is popular for its food and at weekends being next to sports fields and the London Wetland Centre. It’s an amenable pub for all locals with plenty of space and a night atmosphere with quality furnishings (although I preferred the Sun Inn when I lived in this area). Fuller’s ales are available and are best drunk on sunny days in the extensive garden area at the back or the patio section to its side.“

Sun Inn (Bar)
7 CHURCH ROAD
“This pub occupies a prime position overlooking Barnes Green and its pond. The front of the building is attractive but when the sun is out on the Sun Inn its tables are not ample to supply the demand, however a makeshift side area has been built for the demand. Inside there’s an older world feel to it in terms of style, but remains comfortably modern. The bar area at the front is small but offers a cosy feel. The main seating areas are to the rear which is also served by a bar section and food is one of the main attractions, as well as the choice of ale and lagers. This pub gets bus so ordering can be difficult.“

“Lovely little place in a very quaint location. I was very surprised by their selection of beers on draught, including Sierra Nevada and local micros. They had a wide selection of US, European and English beers available in bottles too. Reasonable prices, especially on food, which was good too. Found the crisps a little pricey!“
