Joe and Margy Clarke celebrate 30 years at The Sun Inn, Richmond

Well-known Richmond publicans, Joe and Margy Clarke, celebrated 30 years as licensees of The Sun Inn last weekend, with a party for their regulars in the pub
The pub is a well-known landmark in West London and is also known as a famous rugby pub, frequently visited by rugby players and supporters. On match days, the outdoor screens and Margy’s BBQs are popular attractions.

Joe said: “It’s been an honour to serve the Richmond and rugby faithful over the last 30 years. We have met many true rugby icons and made some fantastic friends during the last three decades. The Sun really is a very special place.”

Mike Clist, Tenanted Director, said: “Joe and Margy are the epitome of a Fuller’s licensee. The welcome is warm, the beer is great and the atmosphere, particularly on rugby days, is legendary.”
