Dating back to 1986, Sonny’s Kitchen is a quirky and stylish London eatery from 2 Michelin-starred chef Phil Howard. Perfect for a whole range of dining demands, from bright and early brunches to supper clubs and dinner parties, the on-site food store makes it your one-stop-shop for all artisanal goodness.

Using the very best seasonal produce from the finest food producers, the Sonny’s Kitchen menu serves up contemporary British cuisine. Enjoy pan fried calves liver with creamed potato and bacon, or 35-day aged rib eye on the bone, served with fries and smoked bone marrow butter. Rustic plates include foie gras and chicken liver parfait on toasted sourdough, and slow-roasted Isle of White vine tomatoes with pesto on toasted ciabatta. The weekly-changing Sunday roast menu is undoubtedly a highlight.

A cool and contemporary dining space is the setting for these menu delights. With slick polished white tiles, stripped wooden floorboards and artwork adorning the walls, Sonny’s Kitchen restaurant is quirky and upbeat: the perfect venue for relaxed dining.

Rustic British cuisine from a 2-Michelin-starred chef, Sonny’s Kitche in Barnes sits 3minutes’ drive from Barnes and Barnes Bridge train stations.

    Unusually empty but amateurish service. Lamb not trimmed properly so could not cut it. Glass of Cote du Rhone was acidic. Selection of 2 desserts and only ice cream was vanilla which even toddler did not want to finish. I think the Chef had just lost interest in serving good good as we have enjoyed eating lunch here before. Embarrassingly disappointing as it was a birthday lunch and couldn't say anything to the manager in front of friend

    Had difficulty parking so was a little late but staff were very welcoming. Food was at the relaxed end of timeliness but very tasty. Would have preferred a choice of two vegetarian main courses - mozzarella pasta isn't a very exciting lack of choice for a vegetarian, though it was done well - would have preferred more variety of texture, colour and flavour, if I'm honest. Everyone enjoyed their food, though, and service was friendly and not intrusive. It was nice to have a reasonably-priced bottle of prosecco on the wine list as well as the grander stuff - some places don't do that. Would probably have preferred not to sit so close to such a large group, who needed silence for their speeches. Nobody asked us to whisper, but it would have felt rude not to.

    Had a really enjoyable evening. Somehow the restaurant knew it was a celebration dinner and amazingly had left us a bottle of Champagne. Wonderful and very generous! Thank you. All the food was delicious. My starter of Octopus and Pistachio dessert in particular. Lots of yummy taste tingles erupting around my mouth. The meal was ended with a surprise Birthday platter with little sweet taste sensations.
    All in all a lovely evening. Thank you so much for looking after us all.

    I can't understand how Sonny's can be so consistently mediocre. Shambolic service on a Friday night. Ok food but some of the prices extortionate, especially puddings and steak. Every time I relent and return I am disappointed. Very sad. The room isn't great either, fluorescent kitchen light unnecessarily visible.
