“Cheap & cheerful B&B, good value for money”
Reviewed 23 May 2014

Stayed here for two nights and thoroughly enjoyed it. For £30 a night single, I had a clean, comfortable double-bed room and a big hearty breakfast. OK, the furnishings were dated (how often do you find a wardrobe with a shelf marked "collars"?) and the bathroom was across the corridor but that is part of the atmosphere of a cheap stay in an old country pub for me. If I want pristine but soulless I'll stay in a Premier Inn (which I do and recommend)

The location is perfect, right in the centre of this fascinating, historic village. Its own car park is a boon and I had my evening meal there each night. The fish & chips was so good, I had it both nights, washed down with excellent local ales, recommend the Tiffin Gold and Monumental.

All staff were cheerful, helpful and efficient.

“Great local pub”
Reviewed 15 May 2014

At first glance this looks a little run down, but the warm welcome and splendid food should not be passed by. Great place to eat.

“When is a sausage not a sausage?”
Reviewed 23 April 2014

Answer: when it's served up by The Sun Inn. We've been here many times over the last 25 years. The food has always been fantastic until our last visit. Home-made sausage was revolting. It was gritty, undercooked, very little meat and just tasted of bread. We couldn't eat it. Everything else was ok but please change your meat supplier!

“Mediocre Pub Grub”
Reviewed 22 April 2014

Sadly this pub could do a lot better. The service was good but the quality of the food was very poor. The Steak and Ale Pie tasted OK but it tasted more like stewing steak and the accompanying veg and chips were woeful. My son had a burger with cheese and bacon that I was really surprised that he managed to eat.

“Great choice of ales and good 'supersized' pub food”
Reviewed 22 April 2014

I stayed with friends in a cottage across the road from The Sun Inn. We popped in most days and had dinner there twice. The bar is smallish but it does have some great ales, although not the widest range i have seen - also a good top shelf of malt whiskys!!

The food is simple pub food and very reasonably priced, however the twist is the size of the portions. They are enormous but still really tasty. My steak and ale pie was brimming with steak. The sausage i had was one of the biggest i have ever been served. The food all round was tasty and wholesome. It isnt going to achieve stars or rosettes but it doesnt need to, what it does is simple but spot of and made us all return again for another meal.

Dog friendly, staff were friendly and helpful. I will return again when next in the area.
