This was honestly the best meal I've had this year (and its August!). Beautifully decorated pub, friendly and confident service, absolutely fantastic food, great wine list and a vegan menu to boot. Perfect evening.

We had a really lovely Sunday roast here on the 12/8/18 The service was great and the best part was the amazing almond sponge I had ! Simply devine !! Only tiny thing would be to offer a steak or sharper knife to cut the beef with other than that a faultless meal ! Thank you

This was our second visit to The Sun Inn and it was just as enjoyable as the first. We seldom eat out as we are generally disappointed with the experience, but we would not hesitate to recommend a visit to the Sun Inn to anybody who is wanting something a little bit special.

This is one of our favourite places because of the high standard of cuisine. We visited on Thursday and I had the chicken liver with pasta which was mildly disappointing compared with the usual fare we enjoy. The sauce was slightly watery and the chicken livers were rather gray and unappetising. Overall we had an enjoyable time and will continue to come regularly, but I thought I'd just mention the slight lapse. (Interestingly my friend also had the chicken liver dish and though it was ok so perhaps it's just me...)

We have had two delightful meals at The Sun Inn, the food was wonderful. The first visit was on Friday 27th July when the restaurant was seriously understaffed and as a result the service was slow, the second was on Monday 30th July with fewer diners and the service was prompt and welcoming. On both occasions the meals were of the highest quality and we enjoyed them very much.

Very attentive service any requested items arrived on the table very quickly. Staff were very knowledgable about cuts of meat as well as size of portions all important aspects of a meal but very unusual these days to find such well informed staff. A lovely and memorable meal.
