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.

Went out for a family meal for our daughter's birthday, today New Year's Eve, we've gone many times and many New Year's Eve over the years. We had to sit in the bar as restaurant full. We were accompanied by disgusting language ( swearing )...and a load of shouting over each other by a group also sat in the bar, so we couldn't have a conversation. So we sat in silence, ate our food and left, we won't be back again in the future, our evening was spoiled.More

Sun Inn is the greatest. Hence continually packed with locals, who are the best judge of best food, good service and excellent value The latest hygiene report is rubbish and can be safely ignored .

We stopped in for dinner one night whilst in the area. The pub had been recommended for food by where we were staying. When we got there it was closed and had no signs up saying when it opened but soon after other people started...arriving and told us it opened at 6pm. So we hung around. When it opened the tables filled with diners. We ordered drinks which were served to the table and were give the menus and told it was steak night (wednesday). The pub decor wasn't up to much and the serve was effective but without flourish so we weren't sure what to expect from the food. We opted for steak as it looked like a good value deal and ordered kids meals. When the food arrived it became clear why this place had been recommended and was so busy. Every steak cooked to perfection, the chips, mash and veg were delicious, and all the kids ate their meals without fuss or complaint. Even as I sat there stuffed I had food envy as I saw the other diners dishes being brought out and saw what I could have chosen. You can't judge a book by its cover. The staff are friendly and get the job done and the food is really good and a good price. If we are up this way again, we will definitely be going back. When we spoke with the owner later on they said all the food is locally sourced.More

Two roasts followed by a couple of desserts....stuffed! All for the reasonable price, including drinks of just over £30. Would definitely recommend giving this place a try.

Went for Sunday Lunch, I had the Turkey the Wife the Lamb, a couple of things ; could not fault the portion size but chips with a roast dinner? The peas tinned processed peas, would it be too much to get fresh garden peas ?...The day we went the stuffing was a water logged n edible splodge on the plate. Tables were tacky to touch, menus could do with a clean. Haven't tried any thing else here but will probably give it a miss in future.More

First visit, food disappointing. Fist time visiting and won't be returning. Although reasonably priced and staff friendly, food a real let down. Initial thoughts upon being seated weren't great, the table was so greasy my arms were sticking to it. The menus were falling apart...and carpet dirty. I ordered a roast dinner, it was so salty I couldn't eat it all. X1 roast potato which was hard, a bullet yorkshire pudding and just not pleasant. No faults with the puddings, very tasty. I'm just disappointed that it was dirty and food a let down. Just being honestMore

Yes, tables outside. Dogs appear to be allowed inside as long as they stay "paws on the floor" :)
