This is a pub with a dining room. The food is good and wholesome with good portions. The beer is good it is fairly quiet off-season but patroned by the local community - so it must be ok to survive. Atmosphere is friendly, what's more...More

We were welcomed by the staff and they seemed very friendly however, felt that the food was just average and the decor very dated so wouldn’t return in a hurry

As regulars we may be biased, but I can honestly say we're never disappointed. Usually have a burger which is always a good choice, but this time had roast beef which was perfect. Beef melted in the mouth and gravy was rich, beefy & thoroughly...More

Absolutely first rate Sunday Lunch. All elements were good, but the crackling with the pork was absolutely amazing (naughty, I know). Good-sized lunch, with well-cooked vegetables. Amazing deal with home-made dessert purchased at the same time. Gorgeous lemon meringue pie which was excellent in every...More

Had the gluten free curry even though pricey thought i would try it. Ended up quite watery and really could not taste the curry. Even my husband who hates curry could not taste it. Might be nice if the waitress stopped to ask if everything...More

Best to contact the Sun Inn directly. I am sure they would take bookings for lunch from any group so long as they knew in advance. We were part of a Classic Car group and we were very welcomed when we popped in without... More
