I do like the Sunflower but unfortunately the toilets are a lot to be desired! So unhygienic!! No excuse for unclean toilets especially when food is being served! The wash hand basin was pure grim and the toilet bowl!!!! Disgusting!!! Great for tourists visiting!!!!

We came here after a recommendation, from the wait staff at another place. Overall impression was that it was a traditional pub, that was very welcoming & relaxed. There were tourists (like ourselves), but mostly locals. The pizza you can order outside was great, but...More
