Dropped in here one day for lunch. Not sure it's that cheap, but the food was amazing (pasta and fish). A little off the beaten track, but worth checking out.

This was my first dinner at the Sun Cafe having had brunch there some time ago which was itself very nice. Although quiet, it was a wet Wednesday after all, the restaurant had a warm and inviting feel. The service was delightfully courteous, respectful and attentive. The waiter was happy to chat and provide information when asked but did not... More

I visited today for a spot of brunch after an appointment. I ordered a cooked breakfast. The staff were attentive and polite and more than happy for me to substitute a few items. The cooked breakfast that arrived was beautifully cooked and presented. I love the atmosphere here. Great for breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner with friends, family or solo... More

Excellent food and service. I had the cray fish and prawns to start, sea bass for main and chocolate brownie for desert. Everything was spot on. One of the best meals in ages, highly recommend.

Turned up without booking on a Thursday (Late night shopping) evening with our 2 babies. We were found a table with plenty of space and were looked after brilliantly. The food was amazing and decent value and the waiter was in constant attendance without being overbearing. Couldn't recommend more.

Popped in for a quick bite solo, ordered the salad off the specials board and wasn't disappointed. In fact it was the best Caesar salad I have had, salad was very fresh, great mix of leaves and the chicken beautifully cooked with just the right amount of cheese and dressing. With a glass of coke, all for £10.50, perfect thank... More

We booked this restaurant on the back of other trip advisors reviews. It did not disappoint. There were 8 of us to celebrate my wife's birthday. The restaurant is nice and cosy with a good atmosphere. We all had starters mains and desserts all of which were extremely good. The food was well presented and tasted fantastic. I would absolutely... More

We'd read great reviews on this place and last year we had brekki here which was soooo good! Thought we'd try it for an evening meal this time - the meal itself was lovely however the manager (apparently recently new) can only be described as rude! He wasn't at all interested in answering questions and everything was an effort to... More

We went on Saturday night for a meal with friends, a party of 14. Our table was booked for 8.00 and our meals had been preordered. On arrival we were totally ignored as the staff were busy with other jobs. We found our table as friends were already seated. Having waited 20minutes we abandoned being offed drinks and went to...
