We have just returned from a fantastic two night stay at The Sun Inn. We came away to recharge our batteries and we certainly did. Every aspect was faultless. Thank you.

We booked The Sun Inn for a large delegation meal visiting the University of Essex from China. The guests thoroughly enjoyed their visit and meal and so thank you to all of the staff who made it very special.

My partner, young baby daughter and I have dined at this pub on a number of occasions and the food and service is faultless every time. The atmosphere is friendly, welcoming and professional. We can not rate this pub highly enough.

Thank you for your kind hospitality, especially being very happy to have our Golden Retriever accompanying us. The food was excellent. I would have liked to have had mayonnaise with my chips which I was told you did not supply. I thought this was rather strange and easily rectified. Many thanks. We will definitely visit again.

A wonderful evening starting from the drinks in your lovely, cosy lounge area right through to the desserts. All 8 of our party thought the food and service were excellent. Thank you.

Staff are always friendly and attentive without being obsequious! Most importantly they know about, and are interested in the food that they are serving.

The reason I have marked down on value for money was because 3 out of the 4 of us choose the £12.50 pasta options and all thought the portions were very mean for that price. I dread to think how small a starter portion would have been. Otherwise it was a very good evening and the deadline we had to eat was noticed and kept to so much appreciated - just better value please .

Thanks for taking so much trouble and accomodating a fussy party with two vegetarians one dog, one baby and one old geezer with more food intolerance issues than should be allowed, and giving all ifbus a splendid welcome and great food and rooms.

Some of the items on the menu do not fully match with what comes to the table e.g. the 0 tart with duck egg is basically a quiche. The desserts are all deconstructed and while the food was amazing the menu is a little misleading. Service was great. We would certainly recommend and return when in the area.

Really fab. We loved it. A beautiful place, outside and inside. Cosy and stylish and comfortable. The lady who served us was delightful. The food was delicious. And you noticed my son had left behind his iPad and called us before we had set off on the journey home: thank you!
