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.

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.

One of the best pubs in Camberwell. Actually, I don't know why I'm leaving this review. I'd prefer people didn't know that The Sun exists, so I can take advantage of it being empty and I can sit outside on one of those picnic benches and drink a pint of Tiger. But then, if no one went, it'd probably close down, wouldn't it…? So, actually, I would like SOME people to go to The Sun. But just some. So, if you're reading this, YOU can go to The Sun, but your friends can't. Just you. OK? Good. Thank you. Enjoy yourself. (But just you. Alone.)

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.
