About The Sun Inn

What more can i say about how much we love the Sun Inn. We came for Sunday lunch and once again were treated to an exceptional meal, immaculate service and an all round fantastic welcome. We have a child with complex needs and it's hard for us to get out for a meal. That's why it means so much to us when we go to the Sun Inn and are looked after so well. Thanks again to all the staff!

The Smoked haddock was stodgy The steak was cold and was chewy The Dauphinois potatoes were under-cooked The Sun Inn is a lovely venue I just wish they could be consistent when it comes to the halitosis of the food.

Really enjoyed our meal again (second Sunday on the trot!) Excellent rabbit pasta dish, delicious roasts and managed to squeeze in my favourite Artic roll dessert. Staff are knowledgeable, helpful and friendly. Looking forward to coming back again soon.

Outstanding food and service at a very reasonable price. The spicy lentil soup was to die for and I was so chuffed when your chef gave me his recipe. I have friends for dinner this weekend and its on my menu. I hope I can do it justice. Also met Andre De Moller. Which added to the interest of our lovely lunchtime experience. See you again very soon X

Excellent and enjoyable evening in a beautiful village. Good food, prompt and unobtrusive - yet knowledgeable - service.

I hate to say that we were disappointed with our dinner on Friday. It was not to the normal standard we have at The Sun in the past.. Both 1st and the 2nd coursed were served on cold plates and the food we thought was not freshly preparedand looked and tasted as if they came straight from the freezer. As you know, we quite often dine at your restaurant and have always enjoyed the meals. We have also recommended you to our friends and family. We hope this was only one off and can enjoy your usual good service in the future.

We enjoyed a lovely family lunch at The Sun. Service was excellent and food delicious. Although the table was not quite ready at the booked time (probably because the diners were enjoying themselves too much to leave), the staff looked after us extremely well and more than made up for this.

The food was exceptional. I was at Chiltern Firehouse two days before and the food and wine was as good. It’s a perfect village pub.

A lovely meal as always at The Sun Inn. The menu is varied and attractive with a good range of choices, also choices for particular diets were catered for. The food was hot, tasty and beautifully served. The pub is a great old building and has been tastefully decorated inside to make it welcoming, comfortable and up to date. Staff were friendly but not invasive. Overall a fabulous experience thank you
