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.

    Good food, good service. Lunch set menu could have had more choice - ie 3 options for each course rather than just 2. Anyway the set menu is more expensive than other similar menus. eg Belvedere in Holland Park is cheaper, has 3 options per course and is excellent food. Rick Stein's Depot in Barnes has same price set lunch menu, but with 3 options per course. However, the Depot's main courses come with no vegetables at all, so in effect the set menu is more expensive as the vegetables are extra.

    I searched on line for a Michelin star restaurant in Barnes and Sonny's came up. I liked the look of the restuarant so we went there for my partners birthday. We found Sonny's to be an excellent choice and were very pleased with ourselves the whole night, for having such great taste :-) Talking of taste: Sonny's is tastefully decorated and the staff were professional and courteous but also able to share a joke which made us feel at home and well looked after. Now I know you want to hear about the food right? All I can say is you really have to go and try. It's amazing - I thought. I had fish with risotto and I think the rice was cooked with nori, and the black and white theme really worked, the juxtaposition in terms of taste was perfect. Really well thought out, and really well cooked. Who's birthday is it next?

    Beautiful restaurant, tables not too close together, but cosy atmosphere with fire.
    Really liked the Sunday Supper menu, maybe option for bread and olives would be nice but for people with normal appetites it was great. The cheesecake was sublime.
    Really good service, attentive but not intrusive.

    Great food. The staff were all lovely, friendly and professional. We had just 1 glass of wine each and that was not frowned upon by the sommelier at all. The staff were well informed in every aspect including on ordering one starter we were told it would take extra time.
