Lezford, I don't know The Sun but the fourth beer sounds like it was Roosters 41 Degrees South from a microbrewery in Knaresborough.

I walked in here about 15 minute after the France vs England rugby game had started on Saturday. As expected the 2 bars were both heaving.

2 very different bar areas with the back bar being where food is served and having a good style about it.

Attentive bar staff that were quick and served the "hoards" that were requiring refreshments!

4 pumps dispensing the following ales...Sharp's Doombar, Fullers London Pride, Kirkstall Dissolution Ale (this was a very good pint) & Roosters ?? South....I didn’t catch the full name of this beer and research has not yet located it.

I left half way through the rugby match and headed up the hill to the Red Lion.

Considerably improved. A good range of draught beers, sometimes the condition is patchy but they have always changed it if it isn't right. Good food available late at night. Music sometimes but you can usually find a corner to escape it if you want. The main thing is the attitude of the staff seems pretty good.

This used to have a bit of a suspect reputation but a good beer venue (and seems popular for food) and a decent outside area, at the front, of all the boozing pubs in Barnes this comes out as the best one.

Having embarked on a sojurn of a decade or more in north London I have returned to the area and see that the glacial pace that the bar staff exhibit has barely changed. I remember the experience of standing at the bar (and clearly concious of the feeling) that I was slowly being subsumed into the ether of the pub. Invisible to the naked eye. At 3pm on a Tuesday afternoon.

However, on a recent visit with a friend (with whom I made many visits in the early days of this century) I was reminded that this is perhaps not a peculiar phenomena to this particular pub.

Why? Well, I noticed that the beers available (Sierra Nevada etc) virtually corresponded with a hostelry that I became familiar with during my stay just south of Enfield. And indeed, it transpires, M&B are the owners of both.

There on a sunny day the bar was usually 6 deep, and with the numerous staff seemingly encased in concrete boots, some of us duly left after 10 minutes and made the arduous journey 2 minutes across the The Green to be served with alacrity at a equally boistrous and vibrant rival.

My analysis being that just maybe this is systematic of the group or brand as a whole.

Generally I can never understand, being the solitary occupant of a bar area, being asked the question (eventually) "Are you being served?". A quick cursory glance of the serving area establishing that the plurality of staff on duty must be visually impaired.
