The place was dead quiet on the stormy Friday night we visited, it's cosy inside which was comforting. The menu has most Pub classics, I opted for scampi to start and toad-in-the-hole for main. The scampi arrived but was not cooked through so it had...More

We loved our mean at Sun Inn. After a long walk it was the perfect place to come and eat and the dog was as happy as Larry. Such a great recommendation and quintessentially English country pub. Lasagne was incredible, can’t wait to come back.
