It was a good pub grub menu the food was freshly prepared by the landlady who served us and was very friendly. The down side, the... More

Visited here for Sunday lunch with family. The pub is a standard local pub with lots of locals- we were not locals so felt slightly isolated. The staff are lovely and very welcoming! The food was fine but unfortunately just not hot enough.

Was going to go to the pub over the road but there was a wedding on there so went to The Sun instead. It was very quiet with only some locals in the bar but we were immediately made welcome and nothing was too much trouble for the landlady. The food choice was good without being fussy and was cooked... More

With friends who know the area on a really hot midweek day when surrounding coastal areas were heaving with people. They suggested this place as doesn't get too busy as tucked out of the main routes. What a find! Service was good, warm welcome and the food was really lovely. Made a great end to an enjoyable day. Good choice... More

After a lovely day in Westgate with friends in the soaring temperatures we decided we'd take our friends here for meal before they left to go home. We'd been here for first time on Saturday. Pleased to say friends enjoyed as much as we did. Lovely meals, mixed grill, steak and scampi were our choices. Meals are about £12. Staff... More

We had a lovely Sunday roast, sat in comfortable chairs, enjoyed a good natter. The barman was attentive and interesting - very helpful. It felt like a welcoming community local.

Very nice food. Pretty good service. Looks nicer outside than in. Bit cluttered and untidy. Bring cash as card machine wasn't working and no attempt to find out why. No cash points nearby! Garlic bread fantastic, came with the lasagne. Steak and chips special also worth having

Me and my boyfriend popped in here on a whim while looking for somewhere to grab some lunch. We walked in and my first thought was that it was a bit mishmash with furniture but pleasant enough. The landlady was nice enough. We found a table at the back away from everyone so we could have a quiet lunch. I... More

Hello I am sorry you felt you had a bad experience here at the sun to hopefully answer some of your questions yes it was a busy bank holiday weekend and I didn't know the card machine had gone down until you went to pay I did say at the time that not to worry about the bill as it was our problem which your partner said no he would get the cash from the card machine I did explain how far it was away and he said no problem at which time he went to get cash I or anyone else cannot fix the machine if broken at which point I called card services for an engineer and I am sorry if you herd me get high rate with them it was not ment to be herd by you or anyone else I don't know if you know about the way card services works but we pay for a 24 hrs service from them to be told we could not get the engineer till the next day was not good on such a busy weekend and my reference to not having custom was about turning people away because of no cash not because we don't have customers we are actually very busy here on food so all I can say is sorry you over herd this as with your steak I did check you order tab and I had medium down for your steak so if I miss herd you sorry again and hopefully you will give us another chance to cook for you again the last referance made by you was the miss mache of furniture this is done by myself as I wanted it to look like an olde village pub not a modern take on weather spoons as it is not to every ones taste I and lots off others love it and say it is homely which is look I wanted so thank you for your report and I hope you will give us the chance to make things right for you
