Good atmosphere but terrible restaurant service. Given 2 menus for a table of 6 by a waitress who hardly acknowledged us. Waited over an hour to have our order taken and food was very slow with no warning or explanation. Disappointed visited The Sun of Camberwell on 19 Feb 2017

Food was fab, service was slower than normal as they had a wedding upstairs and could have done with getting more staff in for the evening! visited The Sun of Camberwell on 10 Feb 2017

The food and wine was lovely. But, whilst our waitress was great and Woking extremely hard, our service was very slow. This is the second time I have eaten in the restaurant on a Wednesday night, which is quiz night and the restaurant seems chronically under staffed. The wait on both occasions was painful. visited The Sun of Camberwell on 08 Feb 2017

I love this pub - the food was delicious and atmosphere is great but the service was terrible. One of the women behind the bar was extremely rude - all the other staff were busy but trying their best visited The Sun of Camberwell on 04 Dec 2016

Sunday lunch is excellent especially if you book the restaurant. We would visit the bar more often if the seating wasn't so very uncomfortable, sitting on old lab stools is not an experience you want very often. visited The Sun of Camberwell on 04 Dec 2016

Dined at the Sun for the first time. Had a lovely table, both the food and service were excellent, couldnt fault it. Try the tasty lamb stew with soda bread, sticky toffee pud and crumble that has suttle christmas flavours. Will definately dine again. visited The Sun of Camberwell on 19 Oct 2016
