The Sun, Carshalton

Oh, and a shameless 20p hike per pint? I'd rather go to The Hope. Even The Greyhound is starting to look an attractive option. Heck, I'd rather go to the Fox and Hounds, find a quiet corner and save 1 per pint.

VAT or no VAT, this hefty rise and the previous issue means The Sun has lost my custom.

The Sun, Carshalton

The Sun started off strongly but is starting to decline.

Firstly, the ale selection - which once rivalled The Hope - has become quite uninspired. Secondly, the food, while of a high quality, is getting very expensive for what is glorified pub grub.

Finally, the patrons. When the place opened up the guvnor said they were targetting the more discerning Carshalton drinker. Sadly, the lower demographic has started to infiltrate. There are often either groups over very loud (and drunk) people blocking the bar or, worryingly, annoying, loud teenies.

The Sun has gone from being the best pub in Carshalton to slipping towards its medicore peers. I hope they chuck out the chavs and sharpen up the focus.

Cheap but not that cheerful and faily rough. Still, at 2.35 for a pint of Beck's Vier (well over 3.50 for an Amstel in The Greyhound and The Woodman), you've got to take the rough with the smooth.
