Had never been to the sun inn before. Nice and friendly pub. I think it’s different. The owner obviously wants to put his stamp on the place. Go and check it out. Can’t miss it. Food was pretty good and reasonable priced.

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
