Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Lovely evening spent in the Sun Inn with friends this evening. We were served by Molly who was very helpful and considering she was new to the roll she was very confident. Anything she didn’t know she soon found out. Meals were served quickly and...were very hot. Good warm atmosphere.More

Visiting friends for a Christmas get together and the quizmaster convinced us to take part in the quiz. The quiz was great and like no other pub quiz we have done, it was clear much thought and time had gone in to it. The staff...served drinks to our table all evening and gave us great attention too. We did not eat as we weren’t planning on staying as late as we eventually did: Overall we thought a lovely pub was extremely well run with hardworking and attentive staff but on this occasion the tongue in cheek, slightly offensive humour that came alongside a well delivered and cleverly thought out quiz really made it a night to remember. Thank youMore

Recommended The Sun Inn yesterday and definitely was not disappointed. Early lunch with my grandaughter, who is at the Uni and lovely treat for her as she didn’t know her Dad was a surprise visitor too. From the moment we walked in we were made...to feel very welcome. The food was excellent but the service, outstanding. We will definitely be going back to the pub when in Northampton. Thank you again 😊More

I hired the barn for a private party for 60 guests. We decided on a hog roast with the sides and it was delicious. All the staff were amazing and worked very hard to make sure I had the best evening. We have had numerous...Sunday roasts at the Sun and never had a bad meal or service.More

Visited as part of a work group. Ordered chicken skewer to start, dry and shrivelled up. Main was lamb couscous. Lamb looked as though it was still alive and couscous was crunchy. Finished off with chocolate ice cream which tasted like no other chocolate I...had ever tasted before in my life with ice crystals in the middle. Overall an absolute disaster.More

The Sun Inn is everything you’d hope for from a local establishment. Dark wooden interior give a taste of eras past, but the modern design ensures plenty of light and comfort. It has a lively feel but with plenty of space and tables. The garden...to the rear is breezy, great for summer drinks. The staff are engaging and helpful. They are quick to, never letting much of a queue form at the bar. The food is excellent, and good sized portions. Though not budget, with mains starting from around £15. Parking can be difficult, but even with a number of friends converging on the pub, there was plenty of street parking to be found - though some had a two or three minute walk. A five star rating for classy, friendly pub that mixes the old and new seamlessly with a lively, friendly local feel. And great food of course.More

Having ordered a gluten free tuna melt and double checking with staff that it was gf I proceeded to eat it. Two hours later, after becoming horribly ill, I realised that staff had made an unforgivable error. I didn’t get the brown gf Genius roll...that I was supposed to have but a white, wheat based brioche roll. I feel very let down by the Sun, I don’t trust that staff are properly trained in the products they are serving. Must do better!More

Called in for a traditional Sunday roast and we were not disappointed. Lovely staff, great atmosphere and a table right by the roaring fire. We squeezed in 3 courses, all were fabulous. Nice portions, great flavours and all for a very reasonable price. Highly recommend.
