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.

My wife and I dined at this pub last night. The food was exquisite. Very friendly service and, considering the quality of the food, very good value.

We came to try the Sun and Slipper on the 11/05/23 after we were recommended by somebody and wow it did not disappoint. If we could give this more than 5 stars we would. As soon as we entered the pub we were welcomed by...a lovely woman that gave us a gorgeous window seat which was just perfect. As soon as we opened the menu we were amazed. So many options for starters and mains! Being in the industry ourselves as chefs, we really admired the time and thought put into the menu ensuring there was something for everyone! We eventually chose the pate and the mushrooms on toast to begin with and it was incredible! The portions were very generous and just so so tasty! You can tell everything is homemade. For mains we had the monkfish and the pan roasted chicken both accompanied with garlic potatoes. The mains were outstanding! We were nothing but full of compliments gushing to each other about our mains as they settled. Each flavour profile was delicate and complimented each other perfectly. The nicest meal we have had in a long time! For dessert we had the bread and butter pudding and apple pie which were both steaming hot when they came out of the kitchen!! They both had amazing flavour and again very generous portions! We will 100% be back again. We couldn’t recommend this establishment enough. It’s rare you find a place with a friendly face and excellent service and outstanding food and this is what we found tonight. Thankyou so much for having us it was truly incredible and we can’t wait to come back and try something new off of the menu!More

The pub is easy to find, has good parking. The staff are few but very welcoming. The menu is good and different from the usual gastropubs, unusual food with great sauces. Service was good .

Just moved to the area and went in with the dog last Friday for a spot of lunch. Wide selection of freshly cooked and delicious food. Really friendly people (Wendy, the landlady and other customers). Glad this is our new local.

My old friend and I try and find new places to meet for lunch occasionally. This time we thought we would try the intriguing sounding Sun and Slipper in the village of Marple. A week beforehand I checked the website for the menus, saw they...did a good range of sandwiches as well as a la carte and phoned to reserve a table. I explained on the phone that we were probably only coming for sandwiches but we just wanted to be sure of a table on a Saturday lunchtime. That was all fine he said, we'll expect you at 12.30. We met in the car park and went into the bar. We've booked a table for lunch we said and were shown through into the dining area and seated in the window. There were other customers but they were not especially busy. It was a pleasant atmosphere. We were brought menus and we ordered drinks. However, we had only been given the a la carte menus so we requested to see what sandwiches they had on offer. Oh, we only do sandwiches in the bar we were told. Well, you've seated us in here now, we did make it clear on booking, so is there a problem? Apparently, there was! The waiter was perfectly courteous but the woman from behind the bar was thoroughly discourteous. She even came back with their booking book claiming no details (other than numbers and time) were recorded in it. I remained civil but pointed out that their booking arrangements were their responsibility not ours as the customers. She must have got the point as she then disappeared and we enjoyed our wine, sandwiches, dessert and coffee in peace. Sadly, the way we were treated on arrival left a poor impression and we will not be going back there again.More

We are only in the area once a year but always include the Sun and Slipper in our meals out and it is always the best by far. To say we liked the food would be a huge understatement, tasty, imaginative for 'pub food' and...filling proportions and friendly efficient staff. Thank you.More

We called on spec and managed to get a table upstairs as downstairs was full. We both had the prawn cocktail which was very nice but I think a little overpriced at £8.95 it definitely was no better than the ones we have had at...a £1 or £1.50 cheaper. Our main course was lamb which was absolutely lovely very tender and plenty of it, the vegetables cabbage, cauliflower and carrots were cooked to perfection as were the roast and new potatoes we were given a large jug of excellent gravy. Drinks were not over priced and the staff were really friendly, they were a little slow to start with but they were very busy downstairsMore

You will have to check with the pub. There were no dogs in the eating area of the pub but there is a bar area and it’s a country pub. So it is worth checking. I do remember a painting of a dog on the wall which was cute!
