Carshalton boasts an outstanding small pub, the community run Hope (p216), which is well worth a train trip into suburbia on its own account, but the Sun, only a short walk from the station, has possibilities too. This cheerful, comfortable and rather eccentrically decorated place is a multipurpose community local, with a busy programme of events and promotions. A mix of spaces includes a rather blokey main bar complemented by a soft centred family room complete with high chairs and games. Expect to see Doom Bar or Landlord as a cask staple, with guests sourced from a large range of often small breweries. Acorn, Blindmans, Cheddar, Dark Star, Downton, Fyne, Thornbridge and Triple fff are among those featured in the pump clip display on the wall of the rear corridor leading to an extensive and very verdant garden. Perhaps not a soaraway Sun, especially give the local competition, but it might still make you beam.
