lovely pub, staff were really attentive and we had some nice food. not weather proof for covid outside seating though, so avoid rainy days until the pub is open inside again.

I have become a regular customer over the last few months, the quality of the food and drink and the service are always excellent. On this occasion I was with my daughter, it was another very enjoyable meal and fantastic value. Keep up the good work, I look forward to returning again in 2021. Happy New Year!

The food was atrocious. My starter (terrine) bore no resemblance to one - very unappealing grey looking meat pushed into a ramekin dish. We sent our fish back - overcooked, dry and over seasoned. Vegetables were not a good fit with the dish and were undercooked. Replacement was not a lot better. Dessert was probably the best part but overly sweet. Disappointed that the experience wasn’t reflected in the bill. We won’t be coming back.

With only one other couple in the Sun there was obviously little atmosphere but the meal and service was excellent and will definitely be returning, probably when we are allowed to dine with friends.

Atmosphere was only affected because of spacing of the tables and the quietness during covid.

It's really hard to rate atmosphere with Covid restrictions in place. We ate in the restaurant but it may have felt different in the bar area

Exceptional value for money. Food was excellent - great choice for the 3 courses menu. Slight criticism about the pudding - it was not, in my view, bread and butter pudding - it was bread pudding (bread pudding being far more dense than the more delicate bread and butter pudding). That said we both really enjoyed the meal.

Roast strip loin was not good - very fatty with inedible hard rind. Service really good - probably leave a gap between starter and main course but nice people who care. Can’t complain about atmosphere during COVID. Nice touch for birthday with candle in brownie. Thank you.

Fantastic host, very attentive and professional. Although atmosphere was dead with the decor very dated and cold. not to the standard that the pictures online perceive. Food not the best with dead side Salad served on each plate, vegetable tart was burnt and chicken burger not great. Not the best but brought back by friendly service

I rated the atmosphere down as the venue is a little stark, it could do with subtle lighting or some furnishings that are not so dreary.
