The Sun of Camberwell

A really great gastropub in Camberwell that's often less rammed than bars closer to the green. Not because it's any less inviting, but because it has more space and is tucked away on Coldharbour Lane. There are booths to get comfy in, stylishly mismatched tables and chairs, a lvoely skylight and ample outdoor seating in the front and back. Food includes seasonal British pub fare.

It’s not hard to miss The Sun with it’s vibrant yellow exterior, it’s a cosy, comfy and spacious pub full of character- just the ticket after a ridiculous day at work! I went with a friend and although the main area near the bar was rather busy, we ventured towards the dining area at the back and had our pick of tables and booths adorned with dainty vases of wildflowers. The stripped floor, gilt frames, shabby-chic wallpaper and cosy fireplace added to the character of the place and made it feel ever so inviting- but only when the door to the outside seating area was closed mind you!

A traditional British Fish and Chips meal made the evening even better, and a shout out to the wonderfully tangy tartar sauce and the oh so yummy minted mushy peas which complemented my meal perfectly! This was my first time at The Sun, but I shall be going back, if only for the Fish and Chips! Nice, friendly, relaxed atmosphere, great place for a few drinks with friends.

Great atmosphere. Food is excellent and the staff friendly and accommodating. Well worth a visit.

My fave pub in london. Vinyl played on the bar, huge garden, open kitchen and full of heart.

Would come here to read a book alone or with 20 pals for a birthday dinner, super relaxed, spacious, bar staff that know how to make a bloody good g&t and a lovely little menu.

Enough along Coldharbour Lane that it feels like a destibnation and you don't feel like leaving until the bell rings!

Great little room to hire at the back too.

I love the sun. Great atmosphere, tasty food and a lively crowd. Also has the added benefit of South London pint prices (not 'cheap' but not a fiver... which seems to have suddenly become widespread?). The shabby chic 'full of stuff from a car boot sale' might not work for everyone but it does for me. Spicy Wings are awesome as is the Sunday Roast.
