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.

I have been poorly, and not eaten much for a week. Having seen a picture of Roast Pork & stuffing hot sandwich of the day on Facebook I decided to pop in to the Sun on my way back from Hospital. "SORRY, sandwiches stop at...3pm! ....but I'll ask the chef" we'll, the darling man came up trumps and this was delivered to my table WOW ...way too much for me, but absolutely delicious. Pork was as ever delicious..not sure I did the salad justice, but thank you so much for your kindness, and for looking after me.More

We call into the Sun Inn probably once or twice a month. Myself and my partner called in yesterday Friday 26th April for lunch. We both ordered fish and chips. We both agreed we have never had tastier fish and chips. The fish was cooked...beautifully and I have never tasted batter like it. We told the waitress how beautiful the food was and she told us a new chef had just started and he was cooking today. We told her we noticed an improvement in the quality of the food. We will definitely be back more often after this experience.More

Staff very nice and restaurant itself was nice atmosphere, unfortunately, we felt that food was overcooked and not very nice at all . Real let down ! And it was not the cheapest place for the food provided.

Steak and Ale pie with chips, consisted of 5 chunks of beef and 5 chunks of carrot served in a shallow bowl with a square of puff pastry on top. Stewed Beef gravy was nice but could of done with a few more chunks beef...for the money £13:95p chips were nice , The onion and mushroom ciabatta was bland and tasteless, bits of fried steak came with onions mushrooms also a basket of nice chips again cost £13:95p. .More

Standards seem to be slipping, but maybe they just have the B team working on Saturdays? We’ve been regulars here for nearly 15yrs and have always loved it. It’s never been back to what it was before it closed due to the lockdown though unfortunately,...maybe they lost some good staff during the shut down I don’t know. The last few times we have visited have been a Saturday which is why I mentioned. Maybe they have the B team working to save the better staff for the busy Sunday, but each of the last times we’ve been there has been small issues with the food but today I was really disappointed with my meal as half of what I was served was inedible! I ordered the belly pork, which I’ve had just about every visit in 2024. I’ve gotta admit that the “crispy” description on the menu is at best hitty/missy, some days great others it’s chewy. Maybe if consistency is beyond some other the kitchen staff then maybe it could be possible to remove the crackling and serve it up separately to make it easier, the meat though is usually spot on. My issue with today’s food and service though was that what menu describes as the “black pudding crushed potato” which I’ve had easily 10+ times and enjoyed, was on this occasion totally inedible! There was other things mixed into it, which I’d imagine from a H&S stand is a big no as we were not asked about allergies! The stack had a massively overpowering smoked flavour to it, it was like eating a kipper! I gave my wife a taste and she immediately spat it out! It was foul! I was just about finished the belly pork and veg when a waiter came over to ask how our food was and I mentioned how unhappy I was with the item, he went to ask the kitchen what was different and came back and said sometimes they add pancetta to it…. Now I’ve had pancetta and I do think there was pancetta in it, but I’ve never had any that tasted as strong as that! He did offer to bring me some chips or mash instead but I only had a couple of mouthfuls of food left so I declined, all the waiter said was “I’m sorry you didn’t like it” and walked off. A while later when everyone was finished eating a blonde waitress came to clear our plates and asked how everything was….. again I explained my disappointment in my (obviously) untouched black pudding potato, again the response was “sorry” and she took our plates. Now I wasn’t expecting a free meal or anything but an offer to knock a few pounds off for the obviously untouched item would of been reasonable thing to do, since the item was not as described on the menu, and unlike it has been on any of the numerous times I’ve had it. If this is to be the recipe going forward then please say so on the menu, not just for people that could be allergic to any of the unmentioned ingredients but also for the people that don’t was kipperesque flavoured spuds with their belly pork! Also can I appeal to the management to bring back a proper specials board! It brought more variety for regular visitors that could get bored with the same menu for months on end. It was great to come and get swordfish or a nice lamb rump dish now and again yet since lockdown the “specials” board has been 1: soup of the day 2: Roast meat sarnie 3: a Sausage….. I’m sorry but non of which come across in any way as “Special”More

With some family away for the weekend I fancied a break away from cooking and we decided to treat ourselves for a Sunday lunch out for a change. Booked the day before and got in for 12pm no problem. Me having a hearty appetite and...the belly to match, ordered the trio of meats as I couldn’t make my mind up. The availability of a vegetarian cheeseburger kept the teenage daughter happy and my wife went for the beef as always. All three meals promptly arrived and the portions were huge. The meats were cooked to perfection and the Yorkshires were that big, I was still finding extra roasters underneath 10 minutes later! Teenage daughter was defeated by the huge vegetable burger that came with wedges and salad. The only thing that stopped me giving full marks was the fact the food was dished up on cold plates meaning it cooled rather quickly, otherwise everything was perfect and too quality. As it was a treat, the cheesecake and sticky toffee pud were sampled and got the thumbs up too. I like this place for a number of reasons. The great food, the excellent staff (honestly, they really looked after us) and the feeling of the place that maybe posh folk call the “ambiance”. We enjoyed our visit and will definitely be back sooner rather than later. Recommended!More
