It is delightful to see not just high standards being maintained, but the Sun Inn is extending its premises and will soon offer dining with a view of the South Esk. Located just 7 miles from Edinburgh city centre, this gastropub is popular with locals but people actually travel from Edinburgh to sample the food. The staff are young but...

Stayed here with work, lovely overall rest stop, beautiful old building with nice features, food was fab, staff very friendly, room and bed was great, only gripe was carpet was a bit grubby on room in places,and water from shower unavoidably went on floor due to layout of bathroom, wiped up with nice white towel which resulted in dirtying it...

The Sun Inn, is an ancient establishment that has re-invented itself for the modern day. I have been a resident in the area for over 25 years and when we first moved out from the city it was a tip. We used to go down for an occasional meal, which was in all honesty no more than semi decent pub...

I simply love the Sun Inn and can't wait to visit once the extension is complete. The food is always exceptional. I have a number of food intolerances. I advised of this at the time of booking and when I arrived the chef had noted on a special menu the food I could have or what could be amended to...

I had the pleasure of staying here 25-27th October. Upon arrival i was greeted with some building works, which once they are finished i am sure will be fabulous. The Bar/restaurant is very welcoming as are all the staff. The room i had room 3 had an enormous comfortable bed and the food was exquisite. Whether you want just a...

4 of us stayed over last night the 31st Oct. colleague flight was delayed by 1.5 hours. I rang to let the hotel know that we would be too late in getting there tonight as the last orders are taken by 9pm. The Manager on duty asked me for our food orders and promised to have our food ready by...

Staff super friendly and efficient. Room well appointed and comfortable. Dinner was on another level.....the soup was the best thing I have eaten in the past 5 years - bursting with flavours and totally moreish. The main of shin of beef was superb as was the sticky toffee pudding. I can't recommend this place highly enough - absolutely wonderful

Before I write my review I must stipulate that this is not about the restaurant or the staff, both of which were very good, it is about the accommodation. I arrived to a building site, which was not a big issue however it would have been nice had I been told beforehand as I probably would have looked elsewhere. Nevertheless...

My husband and I stayed at this adorable Inn while doing a U.K. trip. We really enjoyed it! The food was absolutely excellent. I had duck one evening and we had breakfast two days while staying there. The staff were super friendly and helpful. Our room was very quaint. We did hear a bit of construction due to their renovations...

We booked the Signature Suite as the photography on the web site sold it. Just for the one night. On business, but with my wife along to enjoy the copper bath and to relax. Reception was a little awkward as you had to go in to the bar and announce that you've made a booking. It was busy so it...
