A healthy buffet that changes every Friday and charged by weight. Lots of choice, great food and right in the heart of Barnes next to the pond.

A superb independent wine shop selling a fantastic range of wines. The staff are always willing to help their customers, from connoisseurs, to those who don't know their pinot from their sauvignon!

Castelnau is a road in Barnes, in the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames, south west London, approximately 5.1 miles (8.2 km) west from Charing Cross on the south side of the Thames river. About 1.1 miles (1.8 km) long, it is the main road south from Hammersmith Bridge and forms part of the A306 main road. The name Castelnau is also used informally for Castelnau Estate and means 'new castle' in the Occitan language. Three different English pronunciations of the word "Castelnau" seem to be in current use, all differing only in the final vowel: "castle know" is more ancient, and resembles the original French vowel, "castle now" is perhaps used to match with Nassau Road in the area, and "castle gnaw" is favoured by more recent inhabitants. Castelnau takes it name from Castelnau-le-Lez, near Montpellier in France: in 1691, the 10th Baron of Castelnau and St Croix and his son, Charles Boileau, settled in north Barnes and his descendants developed parts of the area.
