Delicious food, nicely decked out to cater for al fresco dining with good heaters and covered areas. The app is not easy to use but they also offered table service. Seating needs to be more comfortable; having a bench seat on one side of the table which is too high for the table and a chair which is several inches lower on the other is not great. Back was aching from leaning forward all evening.

Warm welcome, patient explaining of how to use app to order. Speedy delivery of drinks and food. Pleasant roof top space. Always enjoy our visits to The Sun.The only downside for me was the ragout that accompanied my sea trout, otherwise every thing else was perfect.

Great meal with the family at The Sun. Amazing food, relaxed atmosphere, loved the effort the team has gone to on the decorations. Will most definitely be going again.

First experience of a meal out since September. It felt very safe with the app to book food and drinks whilst on the restaurant. All tables safely distanced. Food great! Staff friendly. Will definitely come back

Brilliant drinks, went for a roast which was lovely (roast potatoes could have done with a little longer but that was it). They've done everything they can to make outdoor eating a possibility. We had a great time.

Absolutely lovely food and felt comfortable. Only thing I would say is to warn people when booking they need to download the app

Welcoming as usual, despite the circumstances limiting the stay to the garden, which feels very homely. ordering is very easy via the app. And of course great food.

I have been going to the Sun for years (even before it was taken over by the current owners) and I love the atmosphere and selection of drinks. Whilst I imagine a lot of their efforts are put in to the food offered it definitely plays second fiddle and is not the reason I visit as I think for what you get their food is very overpriced. I don't mind paying these prices but I don't think the food justifies the prices at all. I have had many good dishes but sadly not of late.

Really delicious food, pretty lighting and a chilled vibe. Lovely and cosy and warm under the covered area on Saturday night. Not so cosy and warm at external table ( quite a distance from the 1 heater in the middle of the undercover tent another evening. Service was fantastic

Overall great. My only negative would be absolutely no explanation of the Round app or how it works when seated. We wasted valuable time working it out when just a bit of guidance would have helped and made the evening more about us catching up than downloading and working out an app!

Thank you all so much for looking after us all. We had a wonderful time celebrating my daughters 21st Birthday, and so very happy to be back with the wonderful team at The Sun, the food was, as always, wonderful. Thank you so much again for your warm hospitality.

Have been to The Sun many times and always eaten well. My partner and I had different roasts and we were both disappointed with the meat. My pork had lots of fat and my partners lamb was not tender despite being slow roasted. We did mention our disappointment to the staff. We were also very disappointed at the selection of bottles of wine to buy on the App. No Rose, no prosecco by the bottle. The only bottles of wine are also vey expensive . It would be nice to have a more reasonably priced white, red and rose as options . Also the heater near us did work which was a shame. Staff were great and puddings nice but sadly I won’t be rushing back and you have always been a favourite of mine 😞
